taking control of what type of channels are allowed

Post by tonie914 »

this morning in a channel i was in i did a whois on a guy that came in, he was in a channel called "childsexslave". I'll all for the freedom of speech but i'll all for limits, and i think there needs to be some when it comes to the type of channels that are allowed to exsist. I like to think that i'm very open minded but that channel totally offends me and i'm sure would offend a lot of other people. i can't believe that undernet would allow this sort of channel to exsist.

I totally agree with you tonie.....this is against the law to all countries I know but dont worry the channel is not register to undernet..I believe the cservice admins will not allow such channel pertaining to child molestation.

Yes i realize that CServe wont let anyone register such channels, but what i'm saying is that they shouldn't even be allowed to form such channels, somone should be monitoring these things and shutting some of these outrageious channels down instead of allowing then to even exsist.

You cannot prevent this channelforming from happening, if one channel is closed, then they will simply open a new one.
Don't bother reading, I'm just the lame botlender, right ?

Since the channel isn't registered, its up to the ircops not cservice to shut down the channels in question.

I agree that there should be network rules against these channels from being used even if no X is present and also suspending all user accounts of those in the channel as fraud or illegal even if the channel isn't registered.

In the last couple of years I saw plenty channels like that, there is nothing we can do, as long the #CService admin(s) accepts this, anyway I believe those channels should be removed and also a rule of what kind of channel are NOT allowed on Undernet, it seems a bit comunist, but I had enough of those channels and also of the users attitude... Someone should do anything about it, a lot of registered channels are forbidden or the name of it sounds very offensive, racist, pervert and deals with fobidden things... any... Enjoy Undernet !

It is easy to get some attention here with breaking a taboo by using a "offensive" channelname.

If you start to make a "rule" fot "forbidden channels" you end in an electronic nirvana. Let's try to find a rule.

child || boy || girl || mom || daughter || dad || son && sex || xxx

So what's about encest incest inzest channels? what's about the different languages?

And - if you start with an electronic rulemaking you never know where it will end.

If undernet starts to "censor" channelnames .. well .. what's aboug *sex* and *nazi* channels? If we start about a 'bad channel name components list' don't forget to put *call* *escort* and *prostit* in.

And if we have started to censor *nazi* we do the same with *fascist* *musolini* *hitler*.

Oh and the bad guys always find a way to work around. Let's ban *adolf* and *reich*.

Some new channel owner will complain that he doesn't get #wilhelm_reich registered, but we tell him. that we can't take care in any single case ....

The anti-fascist league complaints that their channel was purged.

The "parents for a save planet" association now asks if #undernet can't be purged cause itis a way for criminals to make appointments for crimes.

One day in the near future a admin will purge #paedophilia, #philatelia and #philosophie.

Fight censorship. It is the begining of all endings.
