hi. I agree, ACB Radio announcements should be kept to the
appropriate list. I was not particularly offended by Hue G Rection's
name, in fact I found it humorous, but remember that's just me. I
know some others don't. Let's not go all crazy here people.
and remember, nobody is suggesting that BCT has gone x-rated folks, to date I have not heard one single utterance of a curse word on any of the casts, so if nothing else, we're safe on that score. Like others have said, I'm quite sure we can all use common sense. If you don't like someone's messages, you also have the option of filtering that person's messages to the trash. That way you can remain on the list, yet you won't have to see their messages.
Remember you have lots of options available to you, don't let one person destroy it for you.
I'm in complete agreement with the others who have discussed this issue.
BCT should be a friendly and fun environment, where we shouldn't have to worry that we're going to read something inappropriate or offensive. It's not just the fact that kids shouldn't have to read such things, but some adults have no desire to read these things either. I think everyone can use common sense and good judgement, and know what is and is not appropriate to post. I thoroughly enjoy BCT, and hope to keep doing so!
Sincerely, Jamie D.

Greetings Mary, Hope, etc:
I'm fully inclined to agree with you about such announcements and materials. I for one want to keep the list appropriate enough for my little sisters to be able to join. I don't want to have to wonder if their messages are appropriate or not before kids see them.
Now, on that same token, I know that most of us are adults, so if someone really needs to ask a question of such an intimate nature, I'm sure it'd be alright. There are, however, limits to this view. Lets keep everything in good taste.
Yes. There are plenty of announcement lists for internet radio broadcasts and such. Please relegate your announcements to applicable lists. While I'm sure you want as many people tuning in as possible, there are certain avenues which are more appropriate for such advertisement.
True enough that we can just delete these messages. That, however, isn't the issue. It's more the point that we want to stay within the scope of BCT. To my view, BCT is not an advertisement center. We may promote products we love, but there's definitely a difference between promotion by pride and raw advertisement.
Just want you guys to get the heads up on this issue. Ultimately, it will be up to Larry and Neal to decide on the subject matter of the list, so their input will be the final on this matter.
But please. Lets remain objective, lets remain appropriate, and lets remain friendly.

I agree with Hope on this one. There are plenty of people on the ACB Radio announcements list and ACB Radio friends list who would like to receive this radio broadcast announcement, but I agree with Hope that this BCT list is not the place for it. keep announcements in announcements list.
While we're at it, I got a post yesterday from that Hue G. Rection character. If that person doesn't choose to change his ID, I, for one, choose to block him from my in-box. Regardless of whether or not it makes him think of his old girl friend, I don't like the sexual references that are implied; this is supposed to be a list in good taste that people can
allow their children to subscribe to and parents can feel that it's safe; so can we please keep the bad language and adolescent sexual nonsense out of here? If you don't, then I can choose to unsubscribe, which i will do if
this sort of thing keeps intruding.
