Pictures in The Shroomery. What is acceptable???

I think this is a great question. A lot of pics are posted in various shroomery threads (especially OTD). Some of it is nudity, some of it is sex, some is hardcore (scat, fisting, etc...), and some is just gross (non-sexual).

I'm against censorship of any sort, but DoctorJ brings up an interesting point, some people are offended by this material, and different people have different standards. So how we determine what is acceptable and unacceptable? Who gets to decide? Should anyone get to decide? This applies to the shroomery and/or any other public forum. I'll save my views for a later post, but like I already said, I am generally very anti-censorship.

Any thoughts about this???

If you are offended by it, dont look at it.

Of course, there is a difference than not looking at it and not expecting it and stumbling across it (AHH! it just reflected in my mind again! I NEED TO END THIS LIFE!) :grin:

This is why warning labels, in principle, are a good idea. It isn't censorship, the material is still presented, but people know it is coming so that they can decide for themselves if it is right for them or their children to see...

And, by the way, that picture definitely wasn't right, that deserves the label of something like "XXX SHIT TWISTED MOTHERFUCKER, FEELING SORRY FOR THE GUY WITH THE CAMERA" kind of shit...
Peace.

That works for magazines and movies, but if I were to post something right here, you'd have no choice but to look at it because you didn't know it was coming:



Just for the record, I don't think anything should be banned/censored, unless it is illegal and would get The Shroomery in trouble. I'll give my reasoning later in this thread if people show an interest in this topic.

I think that OTD is pretty much a designated free-for-all, and I don't care what someon posts there. If you can't take the heat, get the fuck out of my kitchen. If it offends you, don't look.

One thing that does bother me, though, is not labelling posts as unsafe for work. It's just a courtesy thing. I don't want anyone to get fired, especially me.

I have no problem with mods deleting posts that are off topic. My veal post got nuked off the food forum the other day when I was being an ass :smile:

Damn, I like that one up there. Nice thighs.

that fine chick definitely does not offend me!!!!

there are also some avatars with nudity in them that I think are really cool and it would be a shame if they got censored.

but... when I see gay porn just arbitrarily inserted into a thread with no warning ('Democrats and Republicans' being far from the first time this has happened) I get pretty offended.

Then I think: Gee maybe some gay guy or feminist gets pissed at some softcore shit like cornholio posted. Its kinda unfair for me to say 'straight porn is OK, but not gay porn.' But on the same token- I DONT WANT TO SEE UNSOLICITED SUPER NASTY PORN!!!!!

then I think: Why are people posting porn on this site at all? I have well over 5 GB's of porn on my HD (all of which I've gotten for free) and have never felt the urge to post any of it here. Anybody on this board that badly needs porn can get Kazaa and find all the porn in the world.

But anyway, I guess its just that whole "dealing with the consequences of free speech" issue. I mean, If you're gonna have the NAACP, you're also gonna get the KKK.

maybe censorship isnt the solution. But dammit, scat porn and gay shit is really nasty and be content to never see that shit again in my life, even though I really dont give a shit what people do behind closed doors.

You talking about the picture with the girl who is suspended in mid air with shit all over her and a guy jamming his shit laden fist in her vagina?

That was pretty disturbing.

Yeah, to donate shit to them would seem to only get them off even more.. GOD; THAT WAS FUCKING DISGUSTING! These terrible, terrible, mind shattering memories.. can't it all just end?!

Warning labels. Yep. That's the way to go. Free speech with an acknoledgement beforehand of what is going to be seen or heard. Can't go wrong with that..
Peace.
