Over the next few days you will be noticing a change. Ron and I have decide that we would like this board to revert to what it was, a forum for discussions on sex, sexuality etc, some picture posting (nothing explicit). There will be a sub-board where  Grant will have his thread and where you are welcome to post the more graphic stuff.

There will be no flames or personal vendettas and if it gets out of control, we may have to implement an approved poster list.. I am hoping that will not be the case...


Cheers

Dina

im disappointed with this fiat.  i can understand moving the hardcore shit and not wanting a thread bitching at you for every one you remove, but seeing as we already have a woman friendly section rule number 3 is not necessary. "skank, ho" etc. may be vile words, but they are also opinions. i hope the irony of censoring a sex board isnt lost on anyone.

If you canít speak of women without throwing words like that around, maybe this isnít the forum for you?  There are hundreds of other sites on the web where that sort of thing is welcome.

Itís about time we brought some civility to this board.  There is a time and place for everything--including being mean--but there is never a need to be mean spirited.

youre missing the point. im sure many people are offended when they read you talking about homosexuality, does that mean you shouldnt be allowed to post it?

Youíre kidding right?  Body building fans offended by talk of homosexuality. ha ha ha  Much to learn you still have . . .  Roll Eyes

At any rate, offensive language and offensive subject matter are not the same thing.  The latter is permitted here (every subject is offensive to someone somewhere), the former is not.

either way, you read words and get offended. far as i can tell the only real difference is the latter is permitted here(for the time being) and the former is not

just because something isnt "nice" or popular doesnt mean its not valid.

I don't see it as censoring at all, I see it more like regulating and building some kinda respectful environement for everyone, men(straight,bi,gay),women(straight,bi,gay) without the demeaning and degrading words. And anyway they are giving you the option to be "bad" on the other board.
Is it censorship that a government only allows porn after midnight and not after lunch?

That should be said for those who can't handle offensive languauge or explicit pictures. Basically, this board will become obsolete as everyone goes straight to the explicit board.

totally disagree with you tokyo joe, if they aren't mature enough enough to have a sexual discussion.(which is the point of this forum). then yeah they can go elsewhere, if the only thing they want to see is porn, why even bother being here in the first place? there are plenty of forums dedicate exclusively for porn, and porn is very easy to find online.
I am starting to really wonder about the age group in here, if all they want is to watch porn and using explicit language,it kinda remind me of my early teen years.

I see your point kodder but when you have a board called SEX, Sexy and more, what do you expect?

well its  a discussion forum about sex, that's what I see.
forums are places to discuss usually, not insult each others, put porn that is found everywhere.
I see alot of threads when someone tries to open a discussion and suddenly all the insecures males jump on him, and insult him one way or another.
Its just too childish, I am always interested on how other perceive all sexual activities, their kinds, their fantasies and stuff like that, at first this forum was going that way, that's why I registered.
But suddenly it became all about getting illegal passes, showing nipple slips (woah a nipple!!! bleh), upskirts, insulting people sexual orientations, and link to porn videos.
The funny thing the average age is pretty high in here, and the funny thing that discussion on some community sites where the average age is 21, seems more mature and more accepting.
just weird...
that's why I totally back up dina for this decision, I hope the old forum gets back the way it was before.

Theres been too many people on here lately spamming up the board. I'm talking about the ones with 0 post count.
0 post count means that you have not posted anywhere else on Getbig(except maybe the alphabet boards or complaint board)

Getbig IS NOT just the porn board. If you dont want to contribute to the rest of the board then your threads here will be deleted. If you at least contribute in some dialogue here in the other threads then your threads will stay but be merged into 1.

this was discussed and voted on here by the members
