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.

    Why is it so difficult to understand that DT is not a license to post something that would otherwise be impermissible to post?

    I was honestly shocked by the thread. Way, way, way over the line. I found out last night that even Reddit has a CP (well, post-pubescent at least) reddit. Was thoroughly disgusted. I think the official reaction to CP and the like has been over the top in recent years, but at the same time, people need to play by the fucking rules. I don't care what your justification is. Adults looking at the genitalia of individuals under the age of 16 is fucking wrong.
    There was bad judgment on that thread, I agree. HOWEVER, the people on the thread in question had no idea... and still don't.... how old the OP was. He could be a troll. As the thread continued, it was my intuition that the OP perhaps had some problems and may not have been of age, at which time I tried to change the direction of the thread and mentioned as much. It was then (rightly) squirreled. I agree that the thread was over the line, but before you go being all "Won't you think about the children!!?!"... a little focus/reality helps. As well, I will recap the thread because I think some members are blowing things out of proportion. 1) Junior member posts "Do you like my dress?" in DUMB THREADS. It's a pic of a person of unknown gender wearing a women's pantsuit/skirt. First few posters assume it is a girl. 2) Someone mentions that the member is male (from reading another thread). Then some member makes the joke about "proving" it. 3) OP SAYS "Pic Sent" on the forum. 4) Several members think this is a joke and, in DT, make some dumb comments like, "OH really, lemme see!" 5) Turns out it wasn't a joke. The picture was forwarded to me by another member (NOT the oP). The pic was not nude, nor was there any way to determine age or anything. It was a pic of a pair of underwear, basically. 6) OP then mentions he is having some issues with gender/identity problems and appears NOt to be a troll and maybe has some real problems. 7) The thread gets squirreled. SO, in short, nobody was trying to promote kiddy porn, soliciting it, nor approving of it. I think EVERYBODY thought the "Pic sent" was just a Dumb Threads joke. Let's end it before it gets more blown out of proportion.

    I don't know if anyone really reads the rules. Hell, I haven't. I once received a time-out for posting visible vag in a thread (it was a painting, but whatever). So I figure you just have to label it as NSFW. Also you can swear. Both seem reasonable. Exchanging or inciting children to post photos of their genitalia isn't just distasteful and across the forum line, but also illegal. I don't see the issue here. -Don't post genitals or nipples; -If you link to them, use an NSFW tag; -No over-the-top avatars; -Don't do shit that's illegal, for Christ's sake.

    I couldn't agree more. Being a Mother, even the thought of this makes me feel sick.

    ...

    This is fair, you're right, you didn't actually expect to receive real photos of a kid's dick, and I'm sure you did have honest intentions. I think there were some other posters there who were actively encouraging it, however. And if the OP was a troll, they were over the line from the beginning.

    +1. Like I said, not a good showing by anybody. Hopefully this, and the wallogina threak, will show all of us to be a little more careful, not just in what we post, but in how we "joke" around and implicitly encourage activity we wouldn't otherwise.

    Why is 16 your magic number? What about 17? What about 15? What if standards are different in another country or another time? What if I looked at them 20 years ago? [/Roman Polanski Threadtrolling]

    Reality check. People assumed the photo was a joke and it turned out to be a close-up of a male person's underwear. No way to determine the person's age, no face. Somebody claimed it was the OP and that the OP was 16. We have no way of knowing.

    Calling this "children genitalia" is a stretch.

    I couldn't agree more. Being a Mother, even the thought of this makes me feel sick.
    I think you may not have followed precisely what happened. It was poor judgement, maybe, but not that bad. Rach summarized what happened quite well.

    It annoys me to keep seeing the "America f***ing sucks" posting from DTs on the front page.
    I realize it was a failed attempt at parody humour, but still...

    I am also trying to change the conversation from penis to anything.

    18 is mine. I also posted a very stern warning a few days ago abt linking ANY porn. This is not a democracy. Feel free to argue with me from oblivion. It's now 3.30 am and I am dealing with all this while I am on holiday in Australia. Test my mood.
