    Then report it if you think that those comments constitute a personal attack on you worthy of some form of discipline.

    I see the forum is pretty free of pornography of late. This thread may have brought the issue the required attention. I still would like to know how to determine the cut off level between acceptable and unacceptable.

    That's because the moderators delete the pornography that is bought to their attention and take whatever additional disciplinary action is deemed appropriate (warnings, bans, and so on).

    Did they remove that cheerleader girl?
    So does that mean an image like that is acceptable?

    Don't know, and to be honest I don't really care. The post is five years old for a start.

    OK there was a new post to that thread yesterday, so there was something in the rules that said the moderators decisions were not to be affected by the time elapsed, but the content only.
    So if you "don't care" how much worse does it have to get before you do care? Like you seem to be on my case, so you are caring about what I do so why aren't you caring about this picture? Don't worry about how old the post is, just consider the content and the comments. People in the room here thought it was rude. Do you not agree it is rather a sexist shot?
    Would you show it to your boss? Or your mother? Your wife? Or to your children or grandchildren?

    Insults that attempt to claim that another poster is immature are a lot more effective if the person making the insult knows how to spell. Just sayin'. But keep trying; perhaps it will work with someone.

    So says mummy's boy!
    Are you out of nappies yet?
    That's how the words are spelt in NZ. English is not spelt or said the same all over the world. But you wouldn't know that at your age, would you.
    You might be much older than you seem, but I always find your posts bordering on the immature. Well mannered 15-16 years of age? You might come right.

    Because you are now very, very deep in it.

    But this time quite wrong. There is no serious depth to it.
    Being a young lad how did you feel about the cheerleader photo? Was it pornographic to you?

    What you lack in intelligence and introspective ability, you certainly make up for in the ability to dig.

    So keep digging. I am sure that if you keep trying to discuss other people's tastes in pornography, people will stop thinking you're a creepy pervert.

    So? The post you're complaining about was five years old. I don't care if one post was made in it yesterday.

    You're going to have to cite that, because I'm fairly sure most moderators probably aren't going to respond to a reported post that's five years old unless it's fairly egregious.

    Keep pushing and maybe you'll find out first hand.

    The picture is not something I would not deliberately navigate to when I am at work, but it falls far short of what I would consider pornographic. Evocative maybe, but not pornographic. Heck. Maybe we should apply Sharia law when it comes to determining what constitutes pronography. Would you like that?

    The age of the post is precisely a consideration otherwise moderators face the scenario of one member taking a grudge against another member and reporting posts that are up to ten years old by going back through their posting history.

    I've seen worse shots on the front page of Stuff or the local daily.

    There you go again. You've been told that this kind of commentary is inapporpriate, not to mention a little creepy, and yet you persist in it.

    Oh for the love of... ugh, here, let me make this BLEEDING SIMPLE okay?

    If you have to stop and question if something is offensive or pornographic... chances are you should PM a moderator to ask first. Use some (un)common sense!

    Is that like saying "it is written", when you don't know where it is written? Who told me this? "You've been told that this kind of commentary is inappropriate..." I asked you the same question and you answered me in #94! You didn't respond "You've been told that this kind of commentary is inappropriate".

    What is the "Sharia law when it comes to determining what constitutes pronography", now that you've brought it up?

    Are you referring to Bell's comment when she called me a pervert yesterday. You must know that making judgements like that on the open forum are wrong. And you using the same judgment even if it is hidden in a question, that this is just as bad.
    Please be careful.

    No, you asked me what I thought of the picture and whether I would show it

    You have an internet connection? You know how to use Google, right? Surely you can figure it out for yourself. It's not that hard, just look into Muslim laws around dress code and decency, maybe review some of the more conservative interpretations.

    Trippy are you well?
    I didn't ask Billvon questions like that? I just asked if he thought it was pornographic. That is all I'll say on the topic at the moment as I'm still in communication with Kittamaru on the subject.
