seriously people. prison rape is not funny. quit w the damn jokes. [View all]

i've seen 5 today.
i'm an old mod w some frustration w the jury system. i've seen how hard it is to come up w clear rules around here, which is why they are kinda vague.
i've alerted on them in the past, and too often seen them stand.

i do wish it was an explicit rule, but it pains me that there is anyone who thinks those jokes are funny.
just stop it.
