    Default What is your definition of explicit?

    My definition is using bad or vulgar language.
    I did a review of a lady who had a medical condition I put the medical condition in my review and it was removed as "explicit " the review is now totally inaccurate.
    No wonder the review system is laughed at. I don't think medical conditions should be removed from reviews as it is needless censorship by the staff of EI.

    Anything explicit is very clear, whether it's instructions or a dirty movie.
    Explicit is anything that is clear and easy to understand. Explicit orders are easy to carry out; explicit instructions are easy to follow. When someone is explicit, they're not beating around the bush or being confusing. It is stated clearly and in detail, leaving nothing merely implied;

    Because if its association with so-called adult movies or strong language it is often mistakenly believed that explicit means is using bad or vulgar language.

    This is sometimes the problem with the "nothing explicit" rule. The opposite of "explicit" is "implicit".
    Defintion of implicit is "suggested rather than expressed". Therefore you often have to waffle.

    Of course sometimes it can refer to language.

    Calling someone "a not very nice person" or saying "someone "can't understand normal thinking could be called implicit.

    Calling someone a "cunt" could be called explicit.

    Why didn't you say you were in Tallaght we could have made it a foursome? LOL

    I'm calling someone advertising in Tallaght since she started advertising this morning and she won't answer her phone.
    What's the point is advertising and not answering your phone?

    Is this explicit enough?

    I remember her.
    If I remember correctly it's not a big deal, it's not a contagious medical condition.
    Lots of people have similar issues.

    Would I be right in saying her condition is not contagious?

    It would have been a 6 some. Some of them were so big they actually had their own personality and the biggest one had a head of hair and a driving licence.
    You said you were in tallaght ! That information is far to clear for me it is verging on explicit it's so factually correct.
    No explicit stuff around here.

    Please be more ambiguous with your language this is far to explicit for me.

    "the review is now totally inaccurate".

    In the good old days you would have received a PM from a mod telling you what was wrong with the review and given an opportunity to edit it.
    Now not only do they hack bits out of it making it inaccurate but sometimes they edit it so that not only is it inaccurate but it reads like it was written by a dyslexic Yoda.

    I would have thought a medical condition to be personal and have no place in a review, maybe a kind word of advice would be more appropriate.
    Something or other
