And if that offends me?

There are very few things that someone couldn't take offense to. For example, what if a lawyer (or an engineer) took offense to the recent "three engineers" versus "three lawyers" joke?

You'd need to automatically remove almost anything related to religion or politics -- on ALL of your boards -- since you are citing "otherwise offensive" as a violation of your terms of service.

I recall a situation many years ago where a woman complained about people having family pictures on their desks at work. She had recently lost her young son and found the pictures hurt her deeply, reminding her of her loss.

Maybe everyone should start reporting anything they think might be offensive to someone? :)

Fair enough.

Primarily these would apply to sexually explicit, violent, racist or harassing material.

As with all the boards, we'll use our best judgement. We're not always perfect, but we do our best. ;-)
