    That message by NYE actually catched my eye too. It's indeed more of a personal insult, if you refer to someone's avatar when we have a most likely fully legitimate case. Well, I've heard something about him outside Poly too, so I understand that there's a legitimate concern. However I would recommend the use of a pop-up killer and a program to remove any ad banners like the woman in bikini, if you think your son might get disturbed by it as he's recovering.

      We all know how unbiased you are Ming. Remember a little private chat we once had? Didn't seem very unbiased there.

      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...
      Some dont like to see reminders of illegal israeli occupation either. Their AVATARS ming and if you dont like mine: REMOVE IT. However this is IS a family site and I request that Markos remove a pornography ad. And yes it is porn: People have been banned for posting shirtless males in the forums. This is much more than that....

        The issue wasn't if Tass can see halfnude women (I'm sure he has seen naked women too), but if his son could be protected a little bit as he's recovering from being somekind of a pornoholic. Yeah, well, I guess you can't abstain from talking politics now when we simply talk about one banner and one child as we know that you oppose Tass' political opinions. Bah, hippocricy.
        Lighten up seems about right... And report all you want...
        Am I the only one (except for Tass, of course) who at least understands the son's situation?

          I like the women in bikini ad (and no I'm not a pervert). Seriously folks I see much worse walking down the street or going to the beach. If it's considered reasonable public dress, at least here in southern California, then why not allow it on 'poly?

            Some people do. However, there are websites for that.

            Yes, I've heard horror stories about Californians dressing to go to the beach

            I think you just answered your own question

              I admite I live at the beach so people put fewer clothes on then in other places but it's hardly pornographic. Neither is the 'poly advert. People should just lighten up and not get worked into a lather over such a minor thing.

                As much as people would like to disagree due to the nature of things today, he has a legit concern, and people should at least try to understand where he's coming from...

                  Oh come now. Mostly it is my son I worry about....My webpage is poly forums. I always have a window open for poly when I'm on the computer. When he comes by and sees this add...I can tell that hes both excited and disappointed and he wiggles his way out of the room and how he acts all day.
                  You also have to consider we live in Utah.....This state teaches in school that pronography is NOT a good thing. It was very short, but basically it was a flier of what to do when your child sees pornography. That combined with him having Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obessive Compuslive Disorder, and major depression with psychotic symptoms...It doesnt help.

                  I'm sure you can understand?

                    I understand where you're coming from and if I ever have children then I might change my mind. But for now I think it's ok. As a constructive suggestion you might be able to download one of those banner & pop-up ad blockers off the internet which will solve the problem or you could submite a replacement ad to Markos which doesn't show quite as much skin.

                      Hmm....Could you point me to something that could do such a thing that doesnt have any spyware in it? Though I still believe that the removal of the ad would make this a family-friendly site, I can be greedy. I just dont want my son exposed to it at all.

                        My wife recently suspected me to visit naughty sites, when she spotted this ad. I tried to calm her down, "it's only Apolyton, my dear". "Ok then", she replied. "But wait, who is Apolyton?"

                          I sympathise with Tass.....I hope MarkG responds to him.

                          But I spend some time here, and I haven't seen any porn......where's mine?

                            Why doesn't Markos replace it with a similar add with a beautiful woman dressed in more than four napkins?

                              How old is your son Tass? Has he never seen a woman in bikinis? My take is too much repression will have the opposite effect. So try moderation.

                                I do not see why the add is called pornographic. You got to be kidding me. Walk down the beach anytime anywhere and you see a lot more than on that tiny ad. I do not see why the ad should be removed.

                                I do not know what the reason was behind removing the post with the shirtless guy but if it was for the reasons you name it was wrong too.
