Please read before venturing into the humour forum
It's been my experience that humour can take many forms and what is funny for some is not funny for others. Often times, one persons idea of fun can be deeply offensive to others.
Humour often plays on human ignorance, stereotypes and human misperceptions. Humour can also be dark by finding humour in death and disease. It can also be used to satirize politicians and religious leaders.
Whether you find these jokes funny or not often depends on your religion or political stripes.
Generally speaking in the humour forum we "lighten" up the rules a bit. We allow "blonde" jokes and we allow jokes about a "priest, a mininster and a reverend" or jokes about "the Frenchman, the Canadian and the italian"
Are these jokes offensive and preying on stereotypes? In some cases, yes but then I would also argue that 95% of primetime television programming relies heavily on stereotypes and ridiculous portrayals of various ethnic groups and groups.
The point is that the humour forums will have some jokes that may offend some so please remember that when you enter into this forum.
Having said all that, the humour forums will be moderated.
We will delete particularly rude or extremely offensive jokes that we think offend the sensibilities of most members.
How does one define "particularly rude or extremely offensive". The truth is I don't know but like pornography I know when I see it.
If you think a particular post in the humour forum has crossed the line, then please use the report bad post feature. Please do not flame.
In addition, I recommend you rate any humour thread. This will alert many members to what's funny and what's not.
The moderators and I investigate every bad post report.
