Warning - NSFW content and websites
I've seen a bunch of posts recently that link to images on websites that contain some pretty dubious content.

Here's a hint. If the URL is from a site that contains pornography or is called something like: myxxxblog or dumpstersluts (two recent examples) then DONT POST IT. I don't care if that image is safe for work. Every person who visits that thread now has a a hit to the dodgy website in their browser history. In a corporate environment this could be enough to flag a HR violation.

If I catch someone doing it they get a weeks ban. The next time they do it, its a permaban.

STOP LINKING ANY IMAGES WHETHER WORK SAFE OR NOT FROM SITES THAT CONTAIN PORN

If you MUST use an image because its appropriate, timely, or brings the LULZ then save it and host it yourself. Nearly every ISP these days gives its users some personal space to host their own website. Use that to host the image.

Well I think if you are prepared to waste time browsing the forums whilst you are at work then you should be prepared to get pwned by network admins...

That's a good point. Google does provide some tools to assist you in filtering out the inappropriate materials via the preferences - http://images.google.com/preferences

They also display the website url below each Google Image Search result.

To be fair though, anyone who clicks a thread called "Hot School Girls!" is pretty much asking for it.

Serious question here! I know why you guys are enforcing this, and it's cool by me.

But, how does hotlinking to dodgie sites, differ from say, browsing a certain forum with lovely worksafe subjects? such as:

Eating Ass
Girls Underpants
Rough Sex
So I'm in too much pain to wank
Hot school girls

Not to mention the other profanities or keywords frequently used on this site, that would trigger any decent web filter.

what about all these posts in the post a pic of yourself thread where people use photos hosted on facebook or myspace.

i suppose any workplace that cared would have those domains blocked outright and thus wouldn't care if files were requested off them?

You couldnt possibly blacklist all the dodgey websites on the internet. Filtering and logging generally only shows domains and the URL accessed (and its picture urls), NOT the data such as text or pictures on the page. although if they were suspicious of your activty they can then access the same URL as you had, and check the content of it.

Now if someone was to program a script to parse the log files for keywords (such as 'free porn', 'horny girls', '2 girls 1 cup') theyd make it automatically email a system admin and alert them of the possible mis-use. Its quite simple to do and I would think most corporate networks have this in place.

I asked these questions in the askitm forum but it along with a thread similar to the subject raised got deleted.
Just in case anyone's wondering, I had nothing to do with this. The Mods do this out of their own free will.
Everyone has their crazy wank sessions including the mods, I don't now post these things here not because I can't but I don't want too. (At least not here.)
There are heaps of forums with looser restrictions including http://www.spraci.com/. (But be warned I've spoken MichaelMD personally and even he has his limits.)
As for the Niki Bellucci thread society has enough drunk, horny guys. It is derogatory to men and women.

Enjoy the money niggas, because there actually is no accounting for taste!

dont know bout you Mr Mike, but i prefer people who work for/with me to be working, not wasting company time on forums.

IMO if people get caught with these sites open at work they should get what is coming to them.

I'm part of generation Y that can multitask... You know, do more than one thing at once.

Computers have this awesome thing called Atl+Tab...

Honestly, if you can show me an office worker that does 8 hours of solid work in a day... If it's not ITM it's gossiping over the water cooler or screwing around in the lunch room...

I'm in no way advocating people posting pron, and I don't want anyone to lose their girlfriends or jobs, but can't this whole mess be sorted with an ye olde "ITM is not responsible for content of links"?

It is a brave call but the rules could use some stream lining.

For example, this link to a G.O.D. (Grrls Of Doof) pic is appropriate in whole website except the PGOTW sub-forum.
She looks pretty to me!

Can you see what I mean?

Edit: wrong link, sorry, yeah I know I suck!

It is not about being ITM being responsible for the content of links (it obviously isn't), it is about posters being responsible for the content of what they link so that people don't click through to places they wouldn't go by choice.

And nothing is appropriate in PGOTW anymore; that forum is closed for business.

I'm going to go into cold sweats, shakes, delirium and extreme paranoia on June 16 when I finish mat leave
because I'll do the smart and right thing by my Employer and STOP surfing the net at work! Seriously it's fair enough, I'm paid to work not LOL at the LOL thread or worry about whether I can get back into a club after 2am in Melbs.

Again this thread sux in that ITM shouldn't have to worry about this sort of thing. It is up to us as individual workers, students or stay at home mums like myself to show some restraint on the innernet so then MM wouldn't get given the opportunity to pull out his trusty golden BAN sythe

I thought swearing the F word or MF word or any alternative swear words were not allowed. I have seen a lot of members swearing in their posts.

Depends on context. There are not enough hours in the day to moderate every instance of "The line-up for this gig is going to be pretty f---ing sweet." However, if you start calling other posters "f---ing motherf---ers", then not only will you prove that you have run out of ideas, but you may find yourself with a short enforced holiday to give you time to work on your vocabulary.

I know all that but I am surprised to see it thats all, legal.

I am on another forum where the mods don't do much and plenty of swearing, and nasty trolling. I also like the rule in this site's guidelines that any personal stuff between 2 people should not be brought into the forum. That should be implemented in the other forum I go into as a lot of the members don't give a care about the rules and even though it doesn't state it, the members there bring in their fights and dramas from other sites and others get involved.

By the way...can I ask what the banning periods are in this site, legal?

allyada, dont ask so many questions,,, just quietly read the threads, have some lulz, maybe make some posts, maybe even a thread. follow my advice and youll pick up on how things 'run' here and eventually get with the in jokes etc.

the stuff you ask you can sorta figure out for yourself.... or post it wrong (like linking a picture) and then ask someone how to do it... @___@

There is no numerical limit on the number of threads you can start but threads need to have a point and it is a good idea not to post absolutely everything that pops into your head.

Bans and warning depend upon the nature of the infraction and whether the infraction is a normally good user slipping up or a "person of interest" who should know better.
