    I'm...just guessing here mind you, but I think it's kind of a tongue in cheek way of making people avoid using nastier insults that have racial or homophobic origins.
    I was angry with my friend. I told my wrath. My wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe. I told it not. My wrath did grow.

    Re: MSPA Fanfiction IV

    That's just horrible.

    EB: karkat!
    CG: WHAT IS IT THIS TIME, YOU UNPICKED PEACOCK MONGLER?
    EB: huh?
    CG: I ASKED YOU A QUESTION, DUCKFACE.
    CG: ANSWER IT OR I'LL FLAY YOU LIKE THE RUMPUS FLAMINGO LORD YOU ARE.

    EB: this is stupid :/

    edit: It didn't stop vaguely homophobic insults.

    Oh lord, was there drama? But... oh well, I can get behind such an initiative, I guess. It's not like I was ever very good at writing Karkat anyway XD

    No drama that I know of. Like I said, It's just a guess.
    I was angry with my friend. I told my wrath. My wrath did end.

    It may also be a way to shut up character bashers.

    I also think that what Decker's trying to say is that it might still be 0kay to have IC insults..? as long as they don't fall into those categories.

    I mean for god's sake the comic itself is pretty full of bad language.

    People in the MSPA Comic chat thread where being unusually slanderous concerning Vriska. It probably got deleted; searching "bitch" got me nothing relevant.

    Or it could just by tynic taking the proverbial piss. I really have no idea.

    I haven't had enough contact with most of the mods here to gain an insight on their personalities.

    I don't think so, NAS added it to the main forum rules as well.

    Re: MSPA Fanfiction IV

    Apparently the word is that right now they're going to enforce it strictly, and that only when they're certain there's no problems with it they might loosen up on it for the fanfic threads.

    Which... unnerves me.

    It's a real rule, but if you want them to cuss out each other, just post it on AO3 and link it.

    wayyy ahead of you. And I'd like to give some room for the fanficcers, but I just can't see at the moment how it would be possible to moderate such a thing. Lexxy is the person responsible, so if she feels she can keep an eye on it effectively then I suppose the rule may be relaxed for fanfiction at some point, but at the moment it's going to be hard-and-fast.
    So you just gotta wait, you should be able to hold off until Lexxy can give a say on this.

    Sucks that people gotta be pilweefs enough for the situation to arise!

    Oh well. I'm kind of glad that the mods care enough to crack down. (although it amuses me that the phrase "bluh bluh huge bitch" is now more-or-less banned, pfft.)

    Lovely. I wonder what brought that on.
    I was angry with my friend. I told my wrath. My wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe. I told it not. My wrath did grow.

    The answer to "what brought that on" is "don't ask, no really, don't ask".

    I am led to understand that the answer involves most of our trolls-in-residence, and it's not pretty at all.

    A little late, but... Karijou, that was brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.

    I hope to see more sometime.

    You can still cuss all you like, you just can't refer to a fictional character or have one do it to another.

    Oh geez, this rule kills roughly two-thirds of Karkat's dialogue in any fanfic.

    Well. Whatever. Not my forum. I'll wait it out.

    I'll follow this rule, I just won't like it.
    It really bugs me for some reason.

    FFFFF
    I was about to post something but it has swear words.
    Lots of swearwords, it's Eridan and Gamzee for duck's sake.

    I am kind of flippping out, and I guess I can't post it now?
    I mean I could link it but that seems kind of a pain, especially since I don't have an AO3 account.

    Use tinypaste or some silly text hosting thing, I am sure there are those.

    They can swear Domoz, they just can't call each other derogatory remarks.
    I was angry with my friend. I told my wrath. My wrath did end.
    I was angry with my foe. I told it not. My wrath did grow.
