Ok, so I just recently read the "Which singer is the sexiest thread?" and I just HAD to say something. It just annoys me that when someone uses homophobic language (omg, thats sooo gay!) you get a warning, but when you say something much more harmless (so-and-so is sooo hot) you get slapped with a ban. Its just illogical. And another thing. When someone deliberately and unjokingly calls another person a jackass, I find that much more offensive, rude and hostile than if someone calls a singer "hot." Yet the jackass comment is ignored while the "teenie" is banned, even AFTER she says "Ok, ok, I won't." This "teenie" was friendlier than a lot of people I've met here. I don't know about you, but if I was her and someone had called me a jackass, I would have probably come back with an equally negative and scathing remark. But this new member kept her cool and specifially said she wouldn't do it anymore. I can't believe a user like this would get banned because she called someone "sexy." Common logic tells me that this is a whole lot less offensive than calling a new LPA member a "jackass." So my question is, why does teenie-bopperism earn you a ban while things like homophobic language gets you an warning? Homophobic language is just as common as teenie-bopperism and even more offensive, and it specifially says in the rules that homophobic language is not allowed. Sounds to me like it should be the other way around--calling someone "hot" should get you a warning--if even that--and homophobic language or something equally negative should get you an automatic ban. I've heard a lot of people saying that if you allowed teenies boppers into the forums, you'd get teenie boppers everywhere. Giving them a warning sounds like a perfectly reasonalbe way to keep it out of the forums. Its worked with other things, right? Anyway, this is not a personal attack against LPA or its administrators. I'm not looking for attention. And I am not trying to cause a stir. So please don't treat this thread as such. This is simply feedback.
