1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Come on man, can't I get a warning or something? That's just cold.

    Fellow SFers, do not, I repeat, do not follow this link.

    Is the man available separately?

    Could add flavor to the stock line "See my other auctions."

    More seriously, even after ebay forbade the sale of non-washed clothing and undergarments, there is an apparently thriving submarket in big-pec'd boys modelling usually cheap articles of clothing.  Most are shirts, since the chest is the most-fetishized male body part whose flesh can be shown on ebay.

    The shoes remain a tough sell.  Hard to sex up a pair of Florsheims.  And in the gallery photo, they look like pasties for the Road Warrior's all male go-go bar.

    You clearly weren't around for the infamous cashmere-scarf-as-butt-floss auction. We showed it to ernest but he passed as it wasn't H&K.

    Yeah, I saw this one too. I even posted it on AA. Shock, I guess. I mean, I don't get it. At first, I thought the shoes could be some sort of decoy, and the real sale was something illegal. However, it really does look like they're just selling the shoes. Go figure.

    Yeah, it's gross but most of you sound like big prudes who have never been in a locker room before. Grow up, you're not 13 anymore.

    Sure, sex sells, but if you are going to post pictures of yourself naked holding some rather dubious looking shoes (or wearing them, also naked, you gotta be prepared for some ridicule, PHV.
