    And this board is no exception. I got a 30 day suspension for posting a picture of Lindsey Lohan with "I CAME" written underneath. Some people even wanted me "to burn in hell for eternity" for it.
    Do I have to point it out?

    I am opposed to all obscenity on Typology Central.

    I completely support your suspension.

    I do not share your obscene point of view.

    People on here actually said that to you? Yikes. Maybe I'm in the wrong place.

    It's the equivalent of banning pictures of prosthetic penises.

    Here we go with the either/or stuff again.

    Meh. It all means different things to different people. Common courtesy makes most of us aware of what is offensive to others and to use a skewed sense of humor with some regard for others.

    The forum is made up of a collection of real people.

    The real people come from lives where there are common accepted standards of decency.

    The real people bring their standards with them when they post, moderate, join and leave.

    If they didn't, it wouldn't be a forum.

    Victor's points are logically valid, but the problem is that he is the "cultural minority" here and will therefore not be taken seriously. Majority rules, sadly. The way to get around this is to influence others to join your position, which he is trying to do here.

    Well, I certainly agree that tolerance of violence does more harm to our culture than tolerance of sexual pornography that is used for private use.

    It does take some courage to take a stance against it, that's for sure.

    I'm in mind of in the day when I was still trying to squeeze myself into that little box which is the Lutheran church. A discussion came up about explicit sex in films and I heard one lady say, "We just watch family type things like. . ." and then she named a bloody shoot-em-up western! Hee.
