Only trouble is, if no form of moderation or censorship is practiced on the comments, how to prevent people making ungentlemanly comments, those languages that are very common in EDWM forum at HWZ?
Some folks are more interested in discussing the physical attributes of the girls and models and their fantasies than commenting on the photos itself..
Not answering to anyone in particular, but this applies to a whole lot of people.
I just ran into another thread, said model, rather famous or infamous depending on which side of the aisle you are on, but that does not matter. What mattered is, in the picture, I saw the following - ridiculously long bbq skewer eye lashes that can kill, extra large iris enlarging contact lens that will make anime babe proud, fake nails with grotesque growth on top ... meanwhile the heavy make up was expertly done ...
I have met this model before, and she is not a plain Jane by any chance, decent figure, big beautiful eyes, pouty lips, a bit short, but she can look good naturally.
What puzzled me was and is, she does not need to do all the extra, and to do them to extreme, but she did, so, my question again is, who should the criticism be directed to?
1. The model, for applying on all that extra junk.
2. The MUA, for the excessive make-up.
3. The photog, for not speaking up and telling the model and mua to keep it simple.
What I've seen is that, even though the photog is the one paying for the model/mua, in most cases the photog seems too scared to tell the model to remove all the extra accessories.
If the model is paying you for a portfolio photoshoot, by all means, advise her the contacts, fake eyelashes and fake nails might detract from the image, but the final choice is hers. If the photog is paying, the final decision (and blame) is with the photog.
Who can remember GOLD 95 FM advertisement.... on the boy that plays tennis like Agassi?
Ironically we have an almost similar situation here.... Nightmare seem like the father of the boy and the coach is DP.....

I received an Infraction from our mods for making a joke and poking fun at someone else within this forum. Clearly this place has lost its sense of humor if something as trivial is considered a violation when there've been dumber and more offensive jokes and comments made b4 in the history of CS. To Chngpt if you want you can suspend me or expel me from this place for broadcasting this, i do not care anymore at this point, but i will add one final thing on the matter and not speak of it publicly again: IT WAS WORTH IT!!!

You will see that people do speak up when they feel that certain comments are unhleahty for the direction of a discussion.
Have a little faith in the general intelligence of the participants here yeah?
The reason why EDWM is screwed up like that is because people have given up on saying anything worthwhile there.
wow... just entered this thread and honestly i haven't a clue on where to start =x
oh well, i'll just give my $0.02 / 2
supposing the model is a
However, criticising a model for undesirable phenotypical traits? Unless one expects the model to undergo plastic surgery to fit your perception of 'beauty', such comments are neither necessary nor respectful. imho, people who make such meaningless comments echo sentiments of chauvinism or even fascism.
