How do people learn to dance?

Would I get banned for having a Nazi Swastika as my avatar?

Why would you want to use a swastika as your avatar anyway?

But to answer your question, you'd probably be asked to remove it. It all depends on your attitude after the removal request I'd say.

Just to f*ck around. I'm not actually a neo-nazi. You are probably right. :(

Short answer is yes. Anything liable to cause offence to a large number of people as an avatar or signature will get it disabled, and if you're persistent enough, you banned.

There's plenty of appropriate images that you can set to "just f*ck around". Setting a swastika as your avatar is not screwing around and is in no way funny. You've got to be considerate of other members.

Is Glasgow as dangerous as everyone portrays it?  Or is it just violent by British and western European standards?  It seems like most dangerous cities in the developed world have bad parts and good parts.  Is it the same in that respect?

It has good parts and bad parts, like you say it's like most cities and not just in the developed world, all over the world towns and cities have good and bad areas.  But to be honest I don't find Glasgow that particularly dangerous... I've had nae bother by the way whenever I've been tae Glasgae.

 

As for the violence I'd rather spend a year in Glasgow than a day in most parts of London, least in Glasgow you get told "to get tae..." (which means please vacate the area you are not particularly welcome here), in London you'll get stabbed and then told to "go away, you wanker" (which means I've stabbed you because I don't like you for reasons I've not expressed to you, now please kindly go away as you are not welcome here)

You'll have good and bad parts of cities anywhere you go.

People always say places in Manchester are bad/rough and most usually refer to Tameside although I've lived in Tameside all my life (different places though) and it's not that bad. You get some dickheads as you do everywhere but it's not nearly as bad as it's made out to be.

For example, I live in Hyde. People say Hyde is rough and people always end up getting stabbed and all that. It's not like that at all. Most people intimidate or try to intimidate others, most usually by eyeing them up and end up getting themselves into sh*t and then moan about areas being rough. I've learnt that if you go out and socialise with people rather than trying to act like the intimidating and independent type, you'll be fine.

If it's yes, what about the Dixie Stars & Bars?

There's not really a way not to act. Just don't be boring and sit down. Have a drink, talk to people who you're going with as well as people you don't know. Chat some chicks up (or lads).

Be careful when taking pills if you're into that.

When I go out I tend to take something to take the edge off. If you're driving then obviously don't take anything too heavy (I don't usually rake anything heavy until I'm out and offered anyway). It basically just takes the edge off. The best way to have a good time is to just forget about everything negative and just focus on the night. Socialise and chat up lasses and you'll be fine.

Just don't worry about f*cking up or whatever. Go with the flow and have a blast, that's the best way to go about it when you're going out like that.

Key words, ‘Controversy” and “cause offence”.

 

Ah, well… Colonel Klink and Sergeant Shultz didn’t either.

But, what about the entire Confederate States Armies? States rights and what they fought for?

(What about the symbols of the Bulldog, Celtic Cross, Hammerskins, KKK, 777, Noose, et cetra.)

Symbols are just ideals mostly held up by people (kids) who don't really know what they stand/stood for. It's a new century and old ideas are coming back? Of course there are people who are 'upset' over certain marks. People will generate hate, disgust for many marks. Suppression of thoughts is a common ideal of people who are in power, or working for power.

 

Short answers, are too broad is what I am getting at.  :)

I've never seen a symbol that upset me or caused me discomfort. I have only thought of the broken cross as a 'foot step to Budda' (from a temple in Viet Nam.) :^:

Carry on!

At least with a swastika you have the ancient religious meanings behind it rather than the Nazi stuff.

 

 Then again, I don't really care.

Australian here. Can someone explain the significance of the Dukes of Hazzard flag and why it may be offensive?
I'm guessing it has something to do with the civil war or independence, but who does it offend and why?

Perhaps deliberately designed to cause offence would have been a better way of putting it. An actual Buddhist Swastika isn't likely to cause offence apart from to people that don't understand it and would probably be seen as OK unless someone was using it to deliberately toe the line between acceptable and unacceptable. 
 
Confederate flag I don't have any real issue with but I can't speak for others.
 
Bulldog, Celtic Cross- in an of themselves fine but there are certain variations of both that will end up being removed sharpish.
 
KKK, Hammerskins, SS lightning bolts, SS Totenkopf, are all likely to be removed. As an aside, it isn't an issue of "censorship" as you're implying but part of the Terms of Service for our advertising partners. I know most of the advertising providers specifically mention that displaying of symbols liable to cause offence can result in them pulling support.

It is the confederate flag, the flag of the confederate army in the civil war who were for keeping slaves, so it has become a bit of a symbol of racism, even if that is a bit simplistic. An African-american individual may not appreciate this avatar for this reason, don't know about black people outside of the US, because they may not know it as the confederate flag. However it was a sort of symbol of hate that if you saw on someone's wall could signify that "this person is a racist prick" but has become more acceptable due in part to things like the dukes of hazard, so now if they see it they think like you "oh he likes the Dukes of Hazard."

 

Funny thing is here in the UK it can actually cause offense to put up the Union Jack, on any other occassion other than a royal wedding, royal death, corrination, royal visit, royal birth or a royal flush. This is because of similar reasons, even though the teeny minority of the people who display the flag actually support themyou can get accused of supporting the BNP, sounds stupid I know but I have seen it happen, This whole confederate flag thing is a similar box of frogs but it works the other way; it was a flag that signified hate that gained a positive reputation rather than the Union Jack that was a positive flag for most but was bastardised. 

 

This is also answering LW's question, as said some people here get angry over our national flag because of the BNP bastardising it. If any non-brits here don't know who the BNP is they are basically a political party in the UK that wants to kick out anyone who is not 'British' and they have a well-founded reputation of being racist c*nts.

I live in Gettysburg for half of each year, and people fly that sh*t off the back of their pick-up trucks like it's normal business.  I don't think you'll see more Confederate flags than in that town, but mainly, we all make fun of it.  There are some Southerners who come up for tours who are a bit more hardcore, but it's generally a big joke.

I've never met someone that flies the confederate flag who is not a racist, but i'm sure one or two exist out there. Usually they will say "Heritage not hate" but then behind closed doors show their true colours.

"True Colours", Close to the real meaning of the phrase :^:
