Retard Feature???

Rather than put someone on "Ignore" that is just simply dumb. Not saying it's mack or price or anyone else in particular, but I have an idea. Code could be written so that someone on "Retard" could post and filters would transform their jibberish into a coherent post. I think it should be available to premium members for sure. :thumb:

If they can not filter out a simple six letter word that begis with n and ends in r that most people find offensive......

But as a Premium member I'd have the retard function, I'd rather they add another word to their filter.

I'm not as suprised that it's not filtered as I am that someone chose to use it.

Are those the ones where me and you just insult people and eachother for about 15 minutes then we almost get banned or our thread gets deleted?
They were the ones where you post your taste in leather goods.

In retrospect, there is no amount of programming that can unretard those two. If there was, I am sure it would take more mainframe to run it than we could come up with. :think:

You do know that some businesses still run them, right??? You do know that they are still powerful, right??? I actually was an operator at my last job.

:D Bwhahaha! Awesome! I've only ever seen them in crinkled black and white photos myself, so I guess you're lucky to have lived through that era. Can you teach me the Jitterbug? :D ;)

Google:

"No standard web pages containing all your search terms were found.

Your search - Mainframe - did not match any documents.

Suggestions:

- Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
- Try different keywords.
- Try more general keywords.
- Try fewer keywords."

Now this is some serious thread deterioration.....not only would a retard filter be nice, but RM could seriously use a tool that stops people from posting on things that are way off point and derail threads. (That and a spell checker too.....damn, some people can't spell to save their life)!

We still have one at work.

Trouble is it's the size of a large suitcase.

How the f**k can they call something tiny like that a "mainframe"?

It ain't right, I tell ya.........

I contend that every company of more than 2000 employees has a VAX hiding *somewhere* in the company. :D

We have a VAX emulator running legacy junk. :thumb:
