ableism in the terms of service

Post by Sovatthika » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:26 am

i refer to section 2, part h of the terms of service

the image below is where the 'goodbye cruel forum' hyperlink goes. "Goodbye cruel forum
A shorter form of I'm leaving the board forever, usually posted by people with ADHD, PMS, or menopause, CAPSLOCKERS, dyslexics, n00bs and duh-weebs who are disoriented because they haven't taken the time to learn how to properly use a particular forum's features or interact with people on it."
further denigration of people with adhd and dyslexia occurs "2. ADHD sufferer submits several messages, after each of which is notified that each message will be reviewed for posting; is too impatient to read that, so:

WHY CAN"T I POST MESSGES LIKE ANYBUDY ELSE? GOODBYE CRUEL FORUM!!!!

"4. Dyslexic: I dono wat u mean by my nice gisnature, but u shudnt talk to peeple that way! Goodby cruel forum! "

i'm curious if this link was posted with knowledge of what it contained or if it was careless humor. i believe it is unacceptable for the forum on the grounds of disparaging people with disabilities
kind regards

Greetings,

If you find a definition of "Goodbye Cruel Forum" posts online that you prefer, which maintains the essence of the behaviours we're looking to curtail, by all means let me know.

Greetings,

Yes, that will do the trick. I'll adjust the link now.
