  • Time to remove the evil porn poly ad

    You know the one I'm talking about. "Your girlfriend.....the perfect gift for her" banner. Why should it be removed?

    1. Apolyton claims to be a family-friendly site. Sorry, but this add is not very family friendly.

    2. A mod recently banned someone for posting a picture of a shirtless male. Should they ban markos for putting this add in?

    3. This is personal....I dont believe in these kinds of pictures because I feel a strong connection to my wife and I believe that to look at these pictures is to violate the bond between us (I know, its one of those crazy Mormon reasons. Oh well.)

    4. My son has had a problem with pornography for quite some time....him walking in just as that add pops up is not condusive to his recovery.

    I know, I can simply "change my style". Barring the fact I actually like Poly adds (other than this one) my style change never seems to stick. I dont want it to suddenly unstick when my son is coming in the room, OK?

    So I humblly request that Markos take down this add as again it is not something I believe in, and its not something that I believe a site that claims to be "Family friendly" would put up.

      Despite how boring they are, I do monitor the shows my son watches. I haven't seen something quite to that level.

      Also, I believe that Poly should be a family friendly site. I'm fine if you TALK about sex, but when pictures get involved I begin to act like an angry mormon.

      But quite frankly, I wouldn't quite allow my son to see that television show or station or whatever either because if hes RECOVERING from it, then I'm not going to intentionally or unintentionally expose him to it. And if I do, then I will take all steps I can to rectify the situation.

      So you'll have to forgive me if I dont simply "lighten up".

          hah. Tass...i dont doubt your parenting abilities at all. Im just saying, it is true. I see way more cleavage on Commercials than in one little picture.

          What, who invited the thought police anyway?

                  Oh, give me a break.

                  Morality from the one who sports uncle Joe as an avatar? Does anything in this picture strike anyone as ludicrous?

                    Tassadar- it's not just a crazy mormon thing, especially to try for a strong marriage.

                    "Barring the fact I actually like Poly adds (other than this one) my style change never seems to stick."

                    I haven't heard of this before. Maybe Markos will look into it if you ask him nicely.

                    No one should have to look at pictures of female body parts if they don't want to.

                      I don't perceive the picture as offensive and I rather agree with notyoueitehr here .

                        NYE, thats a VERY personal insult. You've been reported.

                        Edit: Also, just for the record, my avatar was in response to mounting illogical russophobia in some "Evilest person" thread. I've critisized Stalin more than one TO YOU NYE that you would get the picture that I dont condone any of stalins actions.

                        Which eliminates the "moral crusader" part of your message and turns it into a simple, pure flame against and because someone doesnt share your beliefs and its a very personal flame.

                          Also, I get the impression that this thread will possibly degenerate into a "Lets insult Tassadar and his political beliefs" thread. Because Markos has probably heard my request and I highly doubt ANY good discussion will come from this thread, I request that it be closed. And it looks like I'm right....

                            Didn't seem like a very personal insult to me...

                            Just like you don't like to see MINIMAL skin on a women, some don't like to see a reminder of the horrors of the old Soviet Union...

                            Lighten up seems about right... And report all you want...
