    This thread is useless.

    There may be some issue within this thread regarding ethics, but it is more internet ethics than photographic. The thread starter wonders if this kind thing happens often on serious sites. That depends upon what you mean by serious, but it happens all over the internet. Photo.net has a gazzilion people posting images of every variety. Some are good or even great and many if not most are neither. The ethics issue is really a side bar to the ultrapluralist nature of the internet and large sites like photo.net

    I would prefer and it would seem far more appropriate if this thread were posted on photo.net than here.

    Well thats a gross misunderstanding/overstatment of what actually transpired. What actually transpired is a couple of people came down with projectile potty mouth and someone whose job is it to clean it up simply did so.

    I wonder why you discuss it at all?

    To me, it is a complete non-issue, it has nothing to do with Apug, if it needs to be discussed at all, it needs to be done on photo.net.

    Photography that can be interpreted as pornography by some and fine art by others in the form and presenation of a photograph is fair game for discussion no matter where it comes from. Unless you want to be narrow minded or have another agenda. Discuss it or hide from it, it's out there. I see a good number of people from this site on that site and others. Is there a double standard going on?

    I saw no foul language at all. A few posts about cats and dogs, nothing more.

    Curt,

    I am not narrow minded and have no other agenda, that is why I said "To Me" it is a non-issue...

    Nothing at all behind the scenes, although, I don't go to p.net and talk about apug either...

    That isn't the discussion though. The point is standards on the net and photo.net in particular. Do you or any here have questions about APUG?

    Oi kavolt! I thought I left this issue behind when I got banned from there for bringing up the censorship issue. And I see there's people here who aren't able to NOT click on a thumbnail that might offend their sensibilities. I guess it doesn't matter where you go...there's gonna always be people upset at something.

    Pnet has serious problems with censorship and images some people think are offensive, and they don't deal with such issues evenly across the board. Jock Sturges was asked to pull his images off the board because the models were nude and under 18, and yet there were many other images that were the same (under 18 and nude), yet they didn't get deleted. Another poster was banned because she showed a woman sitting in a chair, naked, with her legs propped up in the chair, exposing her vagina...which showed up about the size of this ----> 0, and as the original poster brouoght up, there are many instances of the same type of images, or ones more explicit, that are allowed to stay. Discussions about censorship are always deleted (and the reason I was banned) although there was one that was let to stand because of the uproar over Sturges being asked to remove his images. (Thats why these kind of issues can't be discussed there).

    One thing seems to be certain, and thats if you don't like something, don't look at it...and don't try and suppress what others, who can look at something and not be offended, can see. Its called self control.

    I personally came here because this seemed to be a more mature group, and I hope I wasn't mistaken.

    Can we post pictures of women fiddling with themselves here? I have no such pictures, I'm only asking this as a public service. I have a feeling the question is going to come up very soon.
