Shhh or they'll ban us from having avatars next like they did with sigs because sigs had to much skin.

If we're going to get rid of the posting of scantily clad women (which I don't have a problem with), I would like to see that go from the avatars, as well. I don't disable avatars simply because it makes it a hell of a lot easier to determine pretty quickly who's posting. But I think it's a double standard to have rules against that, but then have people like BroncoMan4ever, ShutDownPoster, Jetmeck, Bronclvr, Boobs McGee, TonyR, Drunk Monkey, BroncoBen and many more posting scantily clad or sexually suggestive material in their avatars. Even the relatively tame avatars of some of the female community members like Blueflame and Broncochica have raised eyebrows of people standing behind me. That's the unfortunate problem and burden of censorship...once you open that floodgate, it's very difficult to keep it under control without alienating one group or another. I say if you're going to hold people to one standard, it should be enforced uniformly.

As to OldDude's post about hateful comments:

If you guys are offended by something, all you have to do is to report the post, and, when we get a chance, we'll take a look at it and decide what to do.
If modding is such a chore, then I think it would behoove the mods for whom it is such a chore to step down in favor of people who will actually do the work. And if that's all it takes is reporting posts, then you can plan on getting a lot more reports from me about some of the hateful things that are posted in threads.

Even if it's a female dog, the cocaine sufficiently covers up her **** and *****.

Thanks for clearing it up.
Popps I hear what you are saying and understand your position with being married and not wanting your kids to see half naked chicks on daddys screen. However, the employer in me really doubts that your boss is willingly paying you to debate whether or not you should be seeing boobs on a football forum or not.

Sorry dude. The whole "I should be able to surf at work argument is pretty weak IMO". People shouldn't get paid to surf! There is no way in hell you would pay someone to surf the orangemane Popps. I just don't believe it.

Hell I've been self employed ever since the Mane started and I sometimes feel guilty for even being on here during business hours. I consider myself a casual user with only 20,000 posts in decade but I'll be honest. I've wasted a **** ton of time in here during work hours so I know all you fools have on your bosses dime!

This thread is taking unexpected turns.

I'm waiting for white gorillas to come out protecting diamonds any moment.

I don't smoke, so instead I take 5 min breaks here and there at work and on some of those I surf the net, check personal e-mail, blah blah blah. There are a million legitimate reasons someone may be browsing the mane at work.

Anyway, I just fine the whole boob/avatar thing immature and cliche. Who needs to see some chick in a bikini when you can spend about 5 secs to find all the free porn you want anyway.

Out fear of being banned for speaking up I've kept my mouth "mostly" shut about this.

But here goes ...

T.J. I have 0 issue with any of your rules . If you want to reissue the warning about pics of chicks on the main page that's your call. Your house , your rules...


What I do have issue with is the fact that if a person is in the OM clique they get to break said rules and from what I can tell have zero ramifications beside a mod telling me I spoke to them and it will be taken care of. Sorry not fair. They should be banned like anyone else.

I've seen members of the clique wish death on people , use personal info from facebooks and other sites to belittle and insult someone among other things and never receive a ban even if the post is reported.

If you are going to force rules on people and expect us to respect this place and the rules , you should at least enforce them evenly and no matter who broke said rule.

But I bit my lip on this for months now out of fear I'd be banned cause I'm not one of the boards favs but o well .

If there's going to be rules I would at least like to see them upheld no matter who breaks them.

In all seriousness.

We do like to have fun, but I don't want to do what is inappropriate. I really need some guidelines as to what is appropriate here. If we post pics of the Denver Broncos cheerleaders and they have serious cleavage, is that a boob foul?

I'm not trying to give a hard time TJ, but I do need some guidance. Can you get any more specific on what is fair, and what is foul?

It's funny the mods tell us to just put trolls on ignore if we don't like what they have to say. I think if the posters that cry about the pictures can turn that off then the the mods should just tell those posters the same damn thing.

I got banned last week for starting a boob mojo thread. TJ was nice enough to lift it because I had zero idea it was against the rules. As long as I've been here I don't remember anyone getting in trouble for that.

Oh well, hopefully it doesn't turn iinto the denverbroncos.com site, that place was miserable. Part of the reason I love this site are the guaranteed and epic meltdowns that happen every other month.

My God you people are morons.

Popps ended this thread a page ago, but leave it to the idiots to complain about 50 other things, ask for obscure clarifications, etc.

We don't need more mods, we don't need more rules, we need less idiots. Boo hoo, somebody called somebody gay. Boo hoo, somebody said "on the rag." Boo hoo somebody wasn't banned. Life isn't fair. Grow up.

If you can't live without boob images, you need to reassess your life.

If you've got kids, you probably don't want to be unknowingly clicking on threads with strippers 69'ing each other as your kids walk up behind you.

Conversely, if you've got kids... you're already getting laid so posting boob pics is probably not a necessary part of your day.

On top of that, if you've got kids... and you're getting laid... you've probably got a job.

Guess what else you don't want popping up on your computer screen if you have a job that allows you to check football scores and related material?

All make sense?

Get a job, get laid... and you won't need boob pics on a football forum to get through your day.
This was well put.

Plus, who doesn't have a smartphone these days? If you need a boob fix, you're only about 15 seconds away from typing "boobs" into google images

More mods is definately not the answer!
