We were discussing Neopets in that other thread, and a thought occurred to me. It is well known that the site has strict policies on profanity and sexual obscenity. But just how strict are those policies?

As a joke, I have created a throwaway account at Neopets. AoKH_LF. My shit's just processing now, and then it will be active. Here is my plan:
    1. In my profile page, I will have a statement that is ambiguous but could be interpreted as something sexual ("I enjoy having a fun time. Bouncy bouncy!").

    2. I will wait to see if they pick up on it and delete it.

    3. If not, I will upgrade the statement to something even more sexual ("I sell contraceptives")

    4. If it still floats under their radar, I will continue changing it to be more and more obscene. Inevitably, my account will be deleted. You guys will be the first to know when!

Mini-FAQ

    Q. "Isn't this morally wrong? Aren't you corrupting innocent young minds?"

    A. It is unlikely that any child will see my profile. I will not post on message boards or participate in the site at all. The only people who will see the subtle sexual innuendo will be the mods. And it WILL be subtle.

    Q. "Why are you doing this?"

    A. "That is the question I cannot answer. You must figure it out on your own."

    Q. "Can I join you?"

    A. Sure. Registration on Neopets is free.

Okay, we're in business! My account is active, and I created a Chia called ParappaTheRappa123.

[Edit] I have hit unexpected difficulties. It has been a long time since I used Neopets and I don't know how to put text anywhere. Will work on this....

[Edit] Dammit...I have to be 12 hours old.

See you guys tomorrow!

TO THE MODERATORS: Please do not close this thread. It may seem like spam, but I assure you this does actually serve a purpose. What information gets you banned on Neopets? Wherein lies the straw that breaketh the camel's back? Plus, it's funny.

So please, let this remain open for at least one day.

This is an important ethical experiment.

Thank you, thank you.

Just for kicks, I set my location to Taiwan.

Why not North Korea? That way you could've checked whether they automatically ban communists.

Lol @ Areknore!

And I'm not sure if the mods spend their whole time reading through people's profiles.. there are a ton of users, and I'm sure they have better stuff to mod as well. Most people who get caught usually get reported by another user.

I used to drive home after getting drunk, but I had to stop after some moms got "MA-D-D."

Okay folks, it's showtime.
Hello everybody!

In RL, I am a 47 year old male who is, shall we say, confused about his role in life. When I was 9, my father fondled me affectionately and said "kiddo, you have a huge gift in life. Keep it healthy and disease-free, and it will serve you well."

I am anxious to make new friends. I enjoy eating chocolate-coated nuts. My favorite music artists are are the Fat Boys and the Monkees. I like to bump and grind to funky music in my underwear. I have a fascination with leather. My hovercraft is full of eels. If I sound like the sort of person you would like to get to know, hit me up and we can talk!
That should raise a few eyebrows. I'll let it sit for a while and see if my account gets banned.

Good idea.

Quite possible, but I recall receiving a temporary freezing because of a Neomail conversation I had with someone. Maybe they have some way of reading recent text added to people's profiles. Either way, we'll know soon enough.

Nope. Here's why: you're encouraging our forumers to break the rules at another site, not just by doing it yourself and promoting it, but literally encouraging them to register and try the same thing. Experiment or not, as a moderator, I know how pissed off they can get when people intentionally break the rules as a "test". Those ducks don't fly in my territory.

So... thread bad. Thread closed. Don't post anything like it in the future. Thanks.

Your attractive master.
