i'm just worried because we have kids on this site and what if their parents decide to check it out and see something like that what will it tell them about this site?
This has been discussed many times before. It's something we just risk by having an open forum. Users of this site must be 13 years or older, at which time they should be intelligent enough to know not to click on a forum thread with a raunchy title. Those under 13, especially very young and impressionable children, should probably be given parental supervision while surfing the internet, anyway, in which case the parent should be intelligent enough to know not to click on such a thread.
And any parent with any modicum of intelligence should be able to stop and question their child why they were looking at such filth if said child had click on such a thread, in which case the parent with any modicum of intelligence would know that this website is about LEGO and not such filth, and was simply being spammed.
Let's make this clear - this website is not for children. It is intended for hardcore LEGO addicts, be they late teenagers or adults, and are expected to have the maturity and ability to handle such situations without having a nanny state of an administration to hold their hand while they are here.
The admins and mods get to the threads when they get to them, and not a moment sooner. There will always be times, regardless of how many mods there are, when spam will sit on the site for a period of time. It just can't be helped.
