    Opinion on changes to the board

    Just voicing an opinion about the newest enforcements. No need to flame me for what I think, but I don't like it. I will continue to allow the numerous e-mail ads from this site I get and will post by the rules that are set forth and will do so with the utmost respect for the fact that it is a business (they have every right to run it as they see fit)
    Just don't see how a clothed women in a pic (thong included) would offend someone that much. Who looks at Victories Secret the most? women.
    I have changed my avatar to comply (It was a great one too )
    Some people are offended by steriods and talk of this (illegal) subject. I don't share this opinion, but even this may become a future probem (?)


    It's getting where I/m scared to write something in fear of offending someone Someone can be offended by anything said.

    In the end it's a business and they have the final say in how it's run.(this I respect because I am a business owner also)

    write what you like, you can speak freely. i am not sure about the avatars, but it doesn't change anything, you can still post and get alot of info here, is it really that important what picture is next to your name/hell know! look at my avatar, it is a joke, if i had to change it tomorow i could care less. if your deal is to look at some girls there are a ton of free pornsites all over the net, take a spin through them, its your choice in your own privacy., when you but something racey down as a an avatar ,u are forcing others who may not have the same beliefs as you to look at what you believe is not a racey photo. it is just a matter of courtesey for those who are religious or conservative. i myself am very liberal, but i can understand why this change is a change for the better.

    It's fine to post your opion on what's going on with the board because everyone is apart of the change. But lets be realistic about things. This is a steroid message board so if you come here to talk about tree hugging then yeah you will be offended about what the rest of us talk about. So I highly doubt you would ever have a problem talking about AAS.

    On the avatars.......... it was just getting out of hand what some guys and some women had as an avatar. It's human nature when given an inch someone will take two. Well it needed to be stopped.

    That makes me feel better than when I first wrote this. I am a customer of this site and this response answered my question w/o offending me
    Thank you.(I can tell you deal with customers)

    p.s. I know I can surf for porno (does nothing for me, I own a tanning salon and body jewelry store, I see more t&a than a playboy photographer) (ever see hot, tan chics wearing belly rings? I see over 300 a day )

    I think it's safe to say that any man in his right mind LIKED those types of avatars!!



    However, there is more the the board here than just text and pretty colors, so it's best to limit these types of images completely rather than discuss what "is" and "is not" too extreme.

    On to bigger/better things!

    There has never been a problem with voicing your opinion on AR provided you post it in a 1)respectful manner (which you have done) 2)it doesn't break the rules (which you didn't break). Any responses to this thread that were flames should and would have been dealt with. But your thread and your opinion is just fine. it's good to have a diverse crowd and people who don't always agree...so long as they obey the rules when they do this. In short, nobody here has to like any of the rules...but we all have to obey them.

    it's cool man.. times change, we want to make it so women feel as thought they can be part of the community, and not a bunch of muscle heads in the gym thing going in on..

    have you been to boards where women aren't there very much..?? it's because of the avatar's and the xxx sections..

    it's all good..
    The answer to your every question

    Rules

    A bigot is a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted
    to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially
    one exhibiting intolerance, and animosity toward those of differing beliefs.


    If you get scammed by an UGL listed on this board or by another member here, it's all part of the game and learning experience for you,
    we do not approve nor support any sources that may be listed on this site.
    I will not do source checks for you, the peer review from other members should be enough to help you make a decision on your quest. Buyer beware.

    The whole avatar issue seems fairly inconsequential compared to the fact that now we are not allowed to talk about UGLs on the board, this is surely one of the central parts of the boards purpose - to be able to verify the authenticity/quality of your gear.

    Wrong....... you can still post pictures and have your UGL gear verified. I don't see the big problem with this new rule. It's a lot smarter to keep all the talk about the UGL's to a minimum. This is just one more step to help keep things a little safer around here.

    I have seen you have a lot of trouble with the changes around here.

    Ahh, that is a little clearer, is there a thread that I have missed that explains the ins and outs of the new rules? - If not, might I be so bold as to suggest one?

    Not really.
    Things are in the works............. Rome wasn't built in a day.... so this will take time as well.

    And from what I have seen yes you have.......... but if things are becomming a little clearer for you now then that's a good sign.

    MudMan - I honestly have not got a problem, I have only been discussing the changes in a calm and polite manner in order to better understand what we can or can't now do and the reasons for these changes.

    no offence, dont mean to flame, but... this board is becoming more and more censored as time goes on. I mean first went the signatures, now avatars (which dont have nudity I might add). And even some dude was saying we cant say "omfg." I honestly beleive that all avatars will be gone in the near future. Everyone will have to learn to deal with the rules I guess because it's such a great board but still, I hate being censored like this.

    ps. please dont take away my new avatar. it took me 2 hours to make

    Does this seem like a funny statement to anyone else. Don't know the info on your cycle, but the last I checked AS was illegal. (that hasn't stopped "others" from using it in the past(me for those who couldn't get the pun )

    Wouldn't want her to be offended by a little "semi" nudity when she's learning about controlled substances


    p.s. Don't take it wrong, it just struck me funny
