    People get too worked up about these things.

    Ever see Pink Flamingos or Sweet Movie?


    yeah, but people who saw those bought tickets for them and knew what they were getting into, the traumatizing part about the 2girls1cup thing is the miscues sent out in the opening seconds, which put you in a totally different position as a spectator w/r/t expectations and how you're watching. Nobody thougt "hey, this is kinda hot..." in the seconds before Divine eats the doodoo.

    Well, I've no doubt that people who are watching this 2 girls 1 cup thing fully expected some shock aspect beforehand otherwise they wouldn't have been compelled to even take a peek. That's the rub there so to speak; if you expected a shocking thing, then why do you make a big fuss about it afterwards? I haven't seen this video so I don't know what the opening is like.

    I didn't watch the video. Frankly, my concern is more with the execution video, but in either case, my beef is not with people who watch the videos, but those who feel compelled to post the links on Styleforum.

    Is anyone else having a problem editing posts? The edit button has disappeared for me.

    I thought you couldn't edit posts older than a certain age.

    EDIT: Still there for me. Maybe it's you, dude.

    Didn't want people rewriting history?

    I hate that I'm glad about that. But I am.

    Unfortunately, I felt it might be better to prevent people taking their ball. [​IMG]

    Probably a wise choice.

    "I'm taking my ball and going home."

    IE, people deleting all their posts and leaving. This can disrupt or junk entire threads, cause massive confusion, and overall is just an annoying and bitch-ass thing to do. Especially if those posts are informative or useful.

    Exactly. Pandemonium would ensue!
