Adults need to police themselves. I could care less if someone throws around fag or what have you. Its just words on a message board. I also do not care if someone wants to have semi naked chicks in their avatars. However, this is not my site. It's TJ's. If he does not want chest cushion mojo threads, thats cool. He expects us to moderate ourselves. If you post something and think "hey, this might not be cool" then it probably isnt. Don't post it.

Gawd...

Thank you for putting it in a context I couldn't.

I can offend any number of groups with truly offensive and hateful comments and the outcome is 'grow up'. I can literally insult someone's ethnicity, orientation, gender and religion in a personal context and 'life isn't fair' is your retort.

But when someone posts an image of cleavage, the same that we see on the cover of SI or on the sideline of every game in orange and blue - that's bannable.

Where are the priorities, exactly?

It's a privately owned forum and I certainly do not dispute Isaac's right to impose whatever rules he chooses. (quite the opposite)
Again, no one has claimed that hateful comments are fine. You are creating a straw man and then attacking it.

I'm not insulting you, either. I simply said you're not an idiot, so I'm sure you understand the simple subject matter here.

I see hateful comments in almost EVERY thread on this board. They are certainly tolerated, whether they are 'fine' or not.

I'm an adult, I ignore them. Or I put those people on ignore. The fact that that is ignored while the topic of this thread is the 'priority' is confusing to me if the intent is a 'family friendly' environment.

See Taco's first post. He made it really easy to understand. It's a football forum, so he's requesting the porn be left to the porn forums.

Crazy concept to get one's mind around, I know...

He's on ignore. I wouldn't have known he used it.

Report them if they offend you. I'm sure mods will look into it.

Once again, if you're "confused" as to why porn pics aren't allowed on the main pages of an all-ages football forum... it's probably not the forum that needs help.

It's not an all-ages forum. That's the point. And the rep I've gotten on the thread indicates I'm not the only one who feels this way. If Isaac wants to ban pics, ban pics. But don't then mount the high horse and claim this board is family friendly when things that are far more 'hurtful' or 'offensive' are allowed.

The standard used to be no nipples. Unless that rule has been modified and I missed it, everyone can eat a fat one. The closest to a violation you'll find is hard nip picks but you better put a toothpick in your kids' retinas if that's a problem because you can't avoid that in the world.

Really? Seems that the owner says that it is. The owner has kids. So do many of the long-term regulars. So, again... want porn, find a porn forum. Why is that hard to grasp?

Your continual need to blur the issue by talking about personal attacks falls short, repeatedly. I've seen more people banned over personal attacks than I have over boobs. So, again... you either are choosing to misunderstand the facts here, or you're in need of help from someone at home.

As for a high horse, Taco simply reminded people of his rules. Not sure what's "high horse" about that.

You have other complaints? Voice them. This issue is easy to understand, though. Thankfully, the grown-ups here seem to get it.

And again, if you're getting any in real life... why would you care this much about porn pics in a football forum? Maybe the focus should be elsewhere...

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.

I guess i'm the "idiot" for trying to ask for a clarification. Many of us come here for some comic relief and some friendly humor. You really don't need to equate an honest question about acceptable humor and "reassessing your life."

Do you really believe that anyone who thinks boob mojo is funny needs to reassess his/her life? We also joke about a lot of things around here, and boobs are just one. A clarification of rules is the best way to encourage proper behavior. When there are no rules, you get a little anarchy. I respect TJ's rules when they exist, I just haven't seen a written rule on this.

I looked all through the FAQ section, and the sticky threads - I didn't see a thing. Is there a written rule on acceptable content? And, does it apply to Avatars as well?

Your argument loses and merit every time you cite married people should be getting laid. Getting married is what turned me to porn. I got some before that.

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!
Was self-employed for a long time, as well. My line of work involves a lot of stop/start, hurry up and waiting. Our company wants the work done quickly and correctly. But during down-time, our bosses are surfing the web or watching Netflix. It's high stress work so the bosses don't seem to mind if people kill time doing something harmless while waiting for workload.

Beyond that, regardless of how a company really felt about work-time web-surfing, you can rest assured what they wouldn't want is porn images flashing across dude's screens during work hours. I mean, pretty much a no-brainer.


By the way... hasn't Taco freely allowed boob mojo threads off the main page? If so, where's the argument? Why are we even having this conversation. There IS a place here to post those pics for people who can't see them in real life.

Problem solved.
