Non gaming shows on G4TV.
« on: December 23, 2005, 11:42:11 pm »
Am I the only one noticing stuff like the Man Show, Fastlane and racing shows on G4?  And now Star Trek: the next generation is reruning on there!  I mean it's an alright show, but it's STAR TREK!!!  What the hell does that have to do with gaming?  G4 seems to be going into some trend of showing "man" shows and sooner or later it will be converted to the manly gaming xtreme channel.  Am I the only one who thinks this is b u l l s h i t?

well remember it used to be tech tv, so having auto mechanic or sci-fi shows isn't really a stretch.  the man show has to be pure demographics though.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

G4 still hasn't completely crossed over into pure gaming.

Thankfully it's still G4TechTV up here in Canada.  Thouhg there is not much difference from ours to the one in US.
Currently playing: Perfect Dark Zero, Golden Sun, Half Life 2

I don't think it's that bad an idea, nobody wants to watch TV about video games for too long. That's like watching a movie about a guy who likes to watch TV. Bad mojo.

Now that I know G4 isn't as boring as it once was, I'll check it out some more. They shouldn't stray too far from their original audience, though. That would definitely kill them.

Well g4techtv as it is called here (canada) should really stay with gaming and tech.  The channel is bad enough that it has sites trying to boycott it, it's turning into pure dog s  h i t.

There's a word filter for a purpose. Just because there are little asterisks there doesn't make your point any less meaningful. Check this out: Bill Gates is a cheap ****tard. I kept my point and didn't have to try to surpass the rules.

Guys keep it clean. If I see you trying to curse or try to get around the filtering and you will banned from the forums forever. This is your first and last warning.

Is it okay to take advantage of the fact that the filter is there and just type swear words? Or do you want us to keep away from anything implying a swear word?

Because this is my site and I make the rules, that's why. End of discussion.

Sorry gamingsteve, give me a REAL reason why I shouldn't be able to swear beyond, "IT'S MY SITE!"  And yes, please answer why hell is worse than the s-word.  If you're serious about language filters, explain why hell isn't censored.  Why is swearing on here censored period?  And don't say the usual exuse, "Well, kids view my site and blah blah blah."  No seriously, what's with all this?  I'm not trying to offend you or anything, I'm just puzzled.

Because there are members of all ages and it is Steve's site and he doesn't want swearing. You don't need an explanation more than that.   You don't have to cuss to get your point across. There are many other words that can be used besides swearing. Everyone else seem to be able to do it just fine.

Dude, I think you need to quit it and respect Steve. This is his website, and these are his forums, so the least you can do is follow his rules and respect them. Steve doesn't need a reason for his rules; it's his website. It's like walking into someones house and not taking off your shoes when asked to, then arguing about it.

Just show some respect man.

Like my current msn disply name currently says.

Obscenity is the crutch of the inarticulate m*therf***er.

That is cencored by my own self though. but it makes my point.

Wow, you are just BEGGING for repercussions, aren't you? I don't know if you've noticed, but at this site we don't hide behind our anonymity like "wimps." We are courteous and respectful to each other, even when we don't want to be. I would strongly recommend you follow suit.

Oh, and speaking of "being just that stupid," it doesn't seem like you've heard the term "comedic irony," have you?

Thanx I ironically wouldn't have been able to articulate that point as well. The phrase it's self is ment as a joke but the point it does bring up about swaring is a pointless exercise it's use genrally shows that of someone with a poor vocabulary remains valid.

Ok ok ok you're right, internet security is being wimpy.  I should remove my firewall and anti-virus cause I need to be a man and just take viruses, spyware, etc. 

By the way, using asterisks for swear words sure isn't wimpy.  I mean if the word is too obscene, you don't go and use a different word, you just edit it with asterisks!  I mean that totally changes how the word looks and is interpreted!  With such intelligence and conceptualization, you will definatly be working as the future fry cooks of the world!

LoreAlmighty, seems like you're unfamiliar with the term "anonymity"

   1.  The quality or state of being unknown or unacknowledged.
   2. One that is unknown or unacknowledged.

I didn't say that you should take down your firewall etc, I said that (I hope) you wouldn't behave like this in real life and you shouldn't on the internet either. Just because we don't know who you are or what you look like doesn't mean we don't deserve respect.

Everyone, say it with me:
JUST THAT STUPID!

Ha ha! Askerticks! <snort> :D

I think you mean Asterisks ;)

Back on topic: What the hell is G4tv? Living in the land of fewer TV channels i've never heard of it... its a station dedicted to gaming right? (and re-runs of Star Trek apparently). i personally dont see the point, the internet is a much better medium for gaming related stuff if you ask me.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

The only real problem with the swear filters here is that we can say "Lounge," "Robot," and "Pants." [/joke="obscure"]

But seriously, the only time I ever watch G4 is NEVER.

That translates to this, "I'm a little girl that cannot handle any confrontation."

If 762's statement wasn't true, I would've been banned from here a LONG time ago.
