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.

    Cheers,

    I noticed this as well, and would like to know the same thing. Refusing to discuss a problem just because it happens to be hellacious does nothing to help solve it, and deleting a thread for this reason is downright asinine. Unfortunately child pornography does exist, and refusing to have an open dialogue about is turning a blind eye to the problem. If the thread was deleted because of the hellaciousness of the topic, then these moderators should be ashamed of themselves.

    Hmm, I remember Fok mentioning something about Super Squirrels burrowing in invisible forums. Either that or I am thinking of the Happy Tree Friends again [​IMG] . Oh crap! The theme song is stuck in my head again! AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

    Edit:
    Solely because it is the most - intentionally - annoying tunes ever made, I need to drive everyone here crazy, also. Open if you dare!

    I do not deem Happy Tree Friends appropriate for discussion on this forum. I vote this thread be deleted.

    When confronted with an ugly and disturbing problem that is escalating because internet technology has made it incredibly profitable, I think the most effective response is to look the other way and hum a cheery tune. [​IMG]

    Are you being facetious? How can this be an effective response?

    You know, I am starting to get the feeling we will soon either a) find out or b) have this thread disappear. [​IMG]

    Not merely facetious, I intended extremely barbed sarcasm aimed at the off-topic annoying theme tune inanity. Actually, I agree with your statement that I quoted and thought my tone would come across (with the sarcasm emoticon for good measure).

    I would like to know too. Perhaps it was my Shaw quote that might have upset some people?

    It's exactly such duplicity that is the problem.

    LK, your Shaw quote was very apt. I, for one, appreciated it.

    The only thing I saw that could be interpreted as remotely 'controversial' was that someone segued somewhat into a tangential discussion about different societies' views regarding what age constitutes a reasonable age of consent; there seemed to be some reaction to that, as though the poster was suggesting that 'c**** p***' was merely an arbitrary social construct or something like that. Didn't come off that way to me, personally, but I guess I was actually reading it.

    I don't know why the thread was deleted, but I fail to see how discussing it on a clothing forum helps solve it, either.

    By heightening awareness, and provoking thought about how one might impact the situation?

    Nah, just let 'The Government' solve the problem. Or 'Society' -- you know, those people... out there... somewhere.
