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,

    Shorts in general are acceptable only on very hot girls. Anything that shows a lot of leg is good then.

    Ditto.
    American male devotion to wearing shorts until their balls are blue and shrunken from the cold is an amazing feat of masculinity.
    Probably something subconsciously infantile.

    I've never got many American males' fascination with sitting with their legs as wide apart as possible on the subway/bus. Is it because they think they look more macho that way? Has it occured to them that rubbing their thighs (ugh) against a male neighbor's might be misconstrued?.....Annoys the hell out of me when some lardy-boy in chinos insists on invading my seat space with his hams. Why cant girls sit that way instead? That would be way more fun. Dont get me wrong; I fully suspect that most of the American members of this site do not think of themselves as the reincarnation of John Wayne on their way to their professions in the morning. I suspect some have on occasions crossed their legs too. But does the subject of leg-spreading men ever come up in America or is it just assumed to be ingrained?

    If you lived in Southern California you might change your views on the first part of that post. An enthusiastic +1 on the remainder.
