Why has the Fur thread been set 18+

What on earth is the point in having a debate about the ethics of wearing fur ( and latterly the issues of farming ) when the most critical members to be able to join in on this are the youth, who will be making decisions when we are old and falling apart?

Come on, someone on here MUST be smoking some very strange dope if they think that the thread should not be viewed by those not able to vote...

( or is it just the image of the chicken thats deemed offensive? )

EDIT: to include original thread link.

Possibly me not understanding how the 18+ marker on the recent posts page, John.

the Fur thread has the 18+ next to it.

As I understood, this happened if the entire thread had gone 18+, not if it just contained one image that was marked adult.

Happy to be proven wrong, always willing to learn

I think it's just people getting confused by seeing the 18+ icon next to the thread title in the list of forums (not on front page but if looking via Forums > Forum Home)

I'm pretty sure that icon only means something somewhere in that thread has been marked adult - photo or post (in this case just a single post - the swearing one). People seem to think it means the whole thread has been marked adult - which I'm sure it doesn't.

There may be a problem with adult flagging where by a thread does become inaccessible to under 18's if a post in the thread is flagged as 18+ text content. But after testing with esacpe we could not reproduce the error. *Scratches head..........

Happy to have this thread moved to the Site ideas / issues forum if it shows the fault, rather than have it clutter the main forum.

It was me that set one of my posts to adult, so that minors who I learned most of my swearwords from, wouldn't have to see me using them.....I only did it for effect yer see....

It shouldn't have affected the rest of the thread though.......I can see it has been resolved anyway.

Better flag the television as over 18 as there is loads of swear words on there these days

Does seem ludicrous when most under 18s could teach us how to swear
