Why are so many words banned and yet some disgusting topics are not?

Because there is a lack of moral responcibility somewhere. Actually the real answer is that Mylot receives literally 1000's of discusions every day. It is easier to filter words than subjects. A computer algarythm can pick up certain words, but to logically understand the contect of the subject matter is something that computers cannot not do well yet. The moderators depend on us to flag subject we deem inappropriate. When they are flagged they look into it and make a decision based on that. Hope that helps.

Thanks. As I said in the discussion box above, I notice when the cats away..........anyway, the discussion I reported last night appears to be deleted or at least it is somewhere that does not infringe on my line of vision. Thanks

Yes, that I also do not understand. I find so many senseless, disgusting, or sometimes offensive topics still get posted. But that is as far as my own judgment is concerned. We cannot influence the judgment of myLot for they know better than us. All we have to do is just follow otherwise we are the loser here.

I notice that many of these gross posts are added in the US evening time. This makes me think that they are doing this on purpose so as to get these discussions going when myLot is unaware of them.

Am not sure which topics you are talking about but if they are disgusting you can contact mylot and send them the info on the topic and they will check it out and decide rather or not it needs to coe down. But as in everyday life we run across things that may be disgusting to us but to others not so much. I've ran across some but after reading I move on. People don't comment on them then well maybe they wo't get posted.

Very true about reporting it. And I have noticed that the disgusting discussions seem to be rather unpopular. Thanks!

Maybe I'm just more easily shocked than other people. Some topics seem so inappropriate. If they were helpful questions or informational articles, it probably wouldn't bother me. But some of these are just plain gross. Thanks for your input:)
