New mature off color joke forum - read to join group
Yes, you read correctly and we created this new joke forum for those more mature off color jokes many enjoy. It is the NSFW Jokes located in the Asylum.
To access you must join the group by going to your "settings" and on the left side click Permission Groups and join that group.
Please read the sticky before posting jokes in the NSFW Joke forum. As in the asylum, if it abused, it will be gone. Keep it within reason folks and have fun.
A note on FREE SPEECH:
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
The First Amendment is greatly respected here, as are all other Amendments that the Second Amendment defends. marlinowners.com is not listed in the Bill of Rights. We are, however, a privately owned venture and as such, your freedom of speech does not grant you a right to post anything you may wish to say on this forum. These rules are a contract you agree to when you become a member of this forum and members are expected to adhere to them. Those who err cannot complain about censorship, or a perceived loss of first amendment rights. If you do not like our rules or feel you cannot follow them, seek out a new venue to frequent, or start your own.
