    Permit me a completely offtopic -- well, maybe only almost completely offtopic -- anecdote. Sometime last year I submitted some reviews of movies to Netflix. The first one got posted, and even drew a response. The other three vanished into the ether.

    I waited a few weeks and resubmitted the missing -- um -- missives on the theory that a "technical difficulty" had hijacked them. Same result: zilch!

    I noted the last review posted to each of the movies I was trying to review, then waited a few weeks until a review was posted after the ones I had recorded to try mine again. Again nothing.

    The only way I could find to contact Netflix was via an 800 number, which appeared to be only for reporting/resolving connection problems. Nevertheless, I called it anyway, and was not surprised when the person to whom I spoke could not tell me why my reviews were being rejected and exhibited no enthusiasm for determining the cause.

    Ever undaunted I waited a few weeks and tried to submit my reviews once again. Imagine my shock when I received an error message that my review was being rejected -- and get this -- for containing the word "erotic", a word used in Netflix's own plot summary! :eek: Another of my reviews was rejected for containing the word "sex", even though a review submitted and posted prior to mine contained that word also. My guess is that, for whatever reason, a new face on the Netflix team tightened the screw.

    My point above, assuming I have one, is: Who guards the guards? I have expressed my opinion of the official Ignore function of this forum a few times previous: I invoke it only after careful consideration. I also unofficially ignore posters and/or threads of same who are merely annoying at times. Readers' Digest version of this post: I prefer to make my own decisions.

    undercoverdithug is actually funny sometimes. even when he insults anyone(me, you, anyone),in some kind of way, he reminds of someone like Andrew Dice Clay, of the craps boards.
    I saw Don Rickles in Vegas once, he was filthy, made women in the front seats blush, he had no mercy, undercover thug doesn't come close to his filth, and don Rickles got rich with his style of comedy.rtickle would be relentless, then say to the couple/or woman, you've been a good sport, let me buy you a drink, and ask, what would you like, and if the woman shrugged, and said, anything, hed walk over and unzip his pants...relentless.
    Red Fox was no better on stage, hed walk out with a titty coffe mug, and immediately attack women in the front with disgusting humor/jokes.
    Hed start his act with telling everyone he married a Korean, He said I couldn't be in the Korean war, but I figured if you cant beat em, fuck em.
    Well, something like that.
    90 minutes of straight cursing, but it was funny.
    (slappy white was on a lot before Red, those of us that remember going to the Aladdin and seeing 2 rolls royces parked in front, one said slappy, one said Redd)

    Aladdin wasn't much of a casino back then, but I seemed to win at blackjack all the time there, so I played there.

    One night, after the late show(2am), Redd fox, slappy white, and nipsy russel sat at the same blackjack table as me, I was in the middle of the table, (only table open at 2:30 am), and Slappy said to me, let me buy you a drink.
    I thought slappys funniest jokes were when he poked fun at African americans.......hed go on about going to the welfare office, and said, wow, there were enough black people(he didn't use those words) to make a tarzan movie!
    It was a pretty good double show for the money..........as compared to the shows my wife made me sit through, (try sitting through 2 hours of bobby Vinton, with all the women egging him on to sing one more song......ooooh...what torture)

    sorry about the thread drift, just remembering the filthy comedians, undercoverdithug would do well on a stage in vegas, but not sure if hed make more than he claims to make at the tables.

    Once you start on the censorship path...from my experience, it becomes a very cloudy situation. I do believe Jacob has moved threads to the off topic lounge.

    I understand hate speech (racial or otherwise), or threats being addressed...but beyond that, once you start down that road, it will veer off in 100 different directions as to "what applies for removal"

    I just read what I want to now, watch what I want to watch now, and say what I want to say now.....senior status has it's benefits! Of course some of that is because I no longer have a wife. :)

    I was in Vegas with a lady friend, and the pit boss got me tickets to the Don Rickles show.....we got up and walked out after about 5 minutes, it was the late show, and he was so vulgar, it could have never been funny....at least not for us. I can laugh at a little vulgarity, if it's funny, but not the stuff he was spewing out that night!

    Really, Rickles? I've never seen him live...just on TV. I didn't realize he had some Pryor in him.

    The late shows are always a little more risqué for most comedians....drinks I assume. But, yep Rickles was in rare form that night. I do have to admit, the lady I was with, was a cute little thing from Virginia...southern sweet, and I envisioned things much more "entertaining" than listening to Rickles' vulgar references to abusing every part of a female's anatomy. :)

    You know, after thinking about what you said, I may be mistaken....I think it was Buddy Hackett, not Rickles. This age thing I reckon. :)

    OK, makes more sense. Hackett was notorious for an X rated show.

    buddy, another terror for any woman in the front seats.

    I saw a lot of the shows comped by the time the late 80s came around, got a lot smarter and was playing for bigger bucks.
    Even when we saw sigfried and roy, I told my wife not tipping the matre'di anything for more than second row/sectionseats.
    I knew if they threw something on her shed have a heart attack and that would be that.
    I never sat in front for any comedy routines, well, maybe the washed up comedians in the catskills, I knew they were clean.

    I never got to see shecky green when my family went, but I heard he was pretty clean.
    I saw Dangerfield a few times in Catch a Rising star in NY when hed stop in to try out his routine if he ws going to be on Carson, Always clean.
    Only saw youngman once. funny,

    seems all the new comedians , male or female always resort to sex jokes to get laughs.

    My memory of Buddy Hackett is from "it's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World"....
    I think it was Sid Caesar who said it...."he's the guy with marbles in his mouth"...

    Classic Movie.
