    It started slowly and innocently, I think.

    But now it's getting to be that one can't open a BHW thread if family or children are about.

    Dave had some sort of "Booty" forum that he was heavily advertising last year. Why not keep the more risque avatars there?

    I kinda agree with this. I mean, I`m a man, I like seeing naked women, but this is not the right place. We`re here for a different reason.

    I'd have to second that, but I think it might be kind of tedious and time consuming to review every avatar used on this site.

    I too agree the above two posters as well but yes OP is right about not being to able to open when some1 else around... i guess people should try and keep their avatars as clean as possible after all...

    Regards

    Last I heard, Dave had his "Booty" webmaster forum that he was promoting heavily. Can't say I followed it much.

    I figured the *bouncing boob* kids would migrate there eventually. Imagine my disappointment.

    Sinewave, if i'm correct EC's the one that had the boob (woman was pretty hot).


    In the end, i'd have to agree.

    Usually, when i have younger members of the family watching me use my computer, they have no experience with porn, boobs, asses, whatever.
    I'd like to keep BHW NSFW and NSFS.

    Thanks!

    Wrong? No, not per se.

    As I mentioned above, the proliferation of bouncing boob and ass avatars mean that those of us with families and other considerations -- in that others may be in the office with us -- may be unable to use the forum at many times under those circumstances.

    Under options I think there is a checkbox called Show Avatars. If you uncheck it I beleive they all are not viewable. Hope that helps

    LOL, saggy? It's called all natural, my man. No silicone.

    No me gusta fake boobs.

    @ sinewave, I see nothing offensive about my avatar; nothing more offensive than what you'll see on TV at any given time. But for the sake of keeping everyone happy, I guess I'll go back to the same avatar I've been using for the last 6 months.

    PS - Windows key + L = good for when family walks in, or when walking away from your computer.

    Actually I would have under normal circumstances agreed to the OP, except there are very few variables that would be considered normal. I can choose a couple of tangents, but I'll pick up something I feel for and agree with.

    Anything that is blackhat has no reason to be showed to children in the first place. We know what we do, we know if we are right wrong, we know the repercussions of our actions.. (at least I hopee we do).. but I can possibly understand how I would even leave it open to teach a child, what the hell black-hat is, all they need to do is see the domain name, how would you tell them that we are not about breaking the law, if they cant see it, they should not be seen it. Of course there will be a handful that can be explained what it is, there are only a handful.

    If an avatar can be a problem and cant be explained they should not be seeing the forum at all.

    Just my point of view I guess.

    Cheers!!

    Thanks Clix. sorry to be a pain in the ass.

    Hah?

    What has blackhat to do with anything unsuitable for children's exposure? Illegal activities do not fall under the definition, not only in my opinion but in the opinion of the forum staff, as far as I understand.

    As to the avatars, there is nothing wrong with them -- neither as they are now or as they were. I would just like to be able to browse the forum when the kids are doing their homework at their desks across the office from my desk without worrying.

    Thanks to Clix for the special consideration. :)

    Yeah, It's getting to the point where I can't go to the image hosting sites and see legit stuff because I've blocked so many of you yahoos with the NSFW stuff.

    Besides, I'm really tired of getting smacked upside the head everytime my wife looks over and sees something new on the BHW forums :p

    I used to mod a forum section that was strictly NSFW, so I am always cool with that stuff. /me searches forum for E.C.'s "booty" forum.
