RE: PRETTY GIRLS THREAD IS LOCKED?!

The Moderator is "Frank" as far as I know, he's a very laid back person, but I'm sure after that "gas station" pic, he had enough.[:D][:D]

(Come on guys, did you see the boob job on that tramp???)[xx(][xx(]

Otherwise, I admit that was a very entertaining colection,... I had a few of my own I was going to post today.

RE: PRETTY GIRLS THREAD IS LOCKED?!

FYI, I didn't close the thread. I'll reopen it once I have a talk with the others.

Bandwidth - No (Ours is unlimited)
Server space - No (HDs are cheap)
Censorshop - Maybe, I have a feeling one of the women on board got offended, who knows but I will find out and come to a compromise.

The only thing we censor on the site are URLs of those who spam the site and those companies who have at one point cheated members of their money.

Well it seems that the fun was very short lived 'cause the thread is locked after only 3 pages. What am I going to tell all my girls now who all want to get on? [:D]
Seriously is it bandwith, server space or just good old censorship?[:(]

RE: PRETTY GIRLS THREAD IS LOCKED?!

A couple of offensive pics were uploaded by a troll (Howitzer) -- the problem could have been quickly mitigated by a mod -- if there was one....

RE: PRETTY GIRLS THREAD IS LOCKED?!

I'm always entertained by the notion that we literally have congressional hearings when Janet Jackson's breast is exposed on TV, but we routinely show murders and other acts of violence on television, cartoonized and not, and allow our children to watch. It's a weird form of prudery, if you ask me. I don't know of any children who are warped as a result of seeing their mothers' breasts during their breastfeeding days, so we can't defend our revulsion over plain-vanilla nudity as a 'family values' issue.

That's more a commentary on American society, by the way, than any censorship or lack thereof on this site. It's completely up to the mods and site owners what they'll allow on their site, and it doesn't qualify as 'censorship'.

RE: PRETTY GIRLS THREAD IS LOCKED?! - NO MORE

The concept of "community standards" works for me. I don't think its censorship if a clear majority finds something out of bounds. Beauty and photgraphic erotic art are easy to recognize, and enjoyable for those that appreciate it, which is usually the majority. Genitalia exposure and sex acts belong on sites where people go when they don't want art, they just want to jerk off. So jerk offs should go there instead.

Guys I hate censorship more than anyone, but to put is simply,..... some people went too far.

"Keep it above the belt"

Easy[8D]
if you're modding get rid of the ones that are offensive to you guys so we can see what you think is below the belt. you may want to give a bit more precise definition/rule attached there too...
Keep in mind we are new people presenting new problems. Give them a couple of days to set some policy. Lets not go after the host after he has invited us in for dinner.

MM may have been trying a torpedo run, as he’s trying to promote another group. Their servers faster, but I’m really getting way over this wannabe celeb, look at me - I’m somebody attitude that seems to infest this type group when nobody can see that your gut is practically hitting the floor.
Anyway that poor thing pumpin gas was a poster girl for why I can’t deal with boob jobs.

I surely didn't mean to come off harsh. it was just a suggestion. porn can mean different things to different folks so can "above the belt."

I am totaly cool with being patient. we sure stirred up things here a bit. [B)] seems a few are joining in and i feel welcome.

allright![:)]

Same old, same old.....

I am amazed at how sensitive people are over littel things. Different metality I guess.
