Reporting a phpbb forum?

Post by Testicles_the_Greek on February 15th 2012, 12:37 am

Hi

I don't know if such boards can be reported (a phpbb forum) but I've seen one linked to a porn site and contains such discussions?

I tried the 'report a forum' link but when I clicked 'Validate' it said that the forum doesn't exist?! It does- It was on my screen as I typed?

I don't believe linking to porn, or discussing porn can be classed as against the TOS. As the discussion itself is not explicit or Adult material. Not sure.

Hmm interesting.
While that snippet would seem like linking to or discussing porn is against the ToS, if you look deeper into it, it would seem not.

Tos wrote:
Forums that does welcome or promote warez, piracy, hacking, cracking, spamming, attacks against networks or servers, pornography, racial hatred, crimes against humanity, inappropriate activities on the servers, or any other actions which violate any applicable laws, aren't allowed. Any forum which contains texts, links, pictures, animations, videos or any other content recognized as Illegal will be deleted without notice or warning.

The bits in red state that what it is talking about are things which 'break laws' or are 'illegal'.
Now in most countries, depite how adult and innapropriate it is on a forum, porn isn't illegal and isn't breaking laws.

So its a tough one really. Maybe someone who knows a bit more about law could chime in Razz

I've just tried that validate link above (again) it says that the http://www addressed forum (phpbb) doesn't exist?

It's a forum that discusses the huge gallery porn it is linked to, and contains links.

Is it a Forumotion phpBB forum or a phpBB forum?

I'm not sure, that's why I tentatively asked here?

Just says at the bottom 'powered by phpbb'?

If it says powered by phpBB then it is not a Forumotion forum, that is probably why it says it does not exist.

It says this on Forumotion forums: phpBB .

Then they aren't breaking any rules. They're not bound by FM's Terms of Service.

If the forum is not powered by Forumotion Phpbb then it might be powered by another free host, ProPhpbb. I'm not sure but contact their staff to report the forum, it might be under their hosting. Since that forum has nothing to do with Forumotion, and this is the Forumotion Support Section, I don't find a use of this topic, it was useless from the start. :/
