    I tell them no use, they will just ask me to piss off, but if the admins/mods tell them, that it's a different thing. Of course, having hope that the admins/mods do their part, we should also support them in this matter.
    the mods can censor also but its not a real solution because it doesn't stop the advertizers from organizing or even advertizing on Sammy boy and then have the participants come back and post here.

    but that's their problem -

    it's all about the reputation of the community. do the admin and mods REALLY want clubsnap to be equated to sammyboy forum? i doubt so.

    the things you cannot help, leave them alone. the things you can, just because there are things you cannot help, do you leave them alone too?

    Poor Edison was once arrested by a policewoman and imprisoned in her room for 3 days with a video camera.

    It is the worst torture you don't want to go through.

    depends. I have nothing against the advertizers trying to make a buck. What i have against is how GWCs use it as an excuse for their escapism but i ain't elitist enuff to say to them that they shouldn't do it because its prob the genre of shooting they enjoy. so who am i to tell them that they can't do it?

    this is a forums, this is a community, and the admin and moderators are the ones steering the image of this community. just like how the government steers the image of a country. there is a difference between ME telling people what to do, and what the authorities tell people to do. as tired as it sounds, they DO have a right to decide what's in and what's not, whether we like it or not. and this is an appeal to THEM to take sleaze out. nothing wrong with expressing a view publicly, since people here do it all the time, informed or not.

    escapism is a very lame excuse to me. i mean, if your community members use self-flagellation as an excuse of escapism (take for example, nonphotography) and majority of the members are put off by this - then i would think that the authorities should make a stand rather than sit in a corner and try to play nice. else they risk losing the faith (and support) of the members.

    a trend is easily put down when it is in its early stage. let it sink its rot and it will be hard.

    so if the organisers start to come up with threads entitled "rub yourself hard against d-cup jane this saturday" (jane for example, i can't think of any more neutral name), you'll be all for it? glory to you then.

    rub yourself to d cup jane isn't photography that's porno theatre liao...so i dun see how your example helps the arguement come up with something not so far fetched plz esp since no organizer here is gonna be that outrageous to market their shoots. so's your counter arguement of self flagellation because no one is shooting that! People wanna whip themselves in their own time is their tai chi. who are u to tell them they cannot do it? besides there are no laws against whipping yourself. That would be fun to watch: the world's first trial of self assault! now if someone came up with an S&M theme...i have to wonder if people would see that as a perversion. besides no one has answered the q: what gives you the right to go out and police others? the mods here alone have it but i dun see how the other forumers do.

    forgot to add using your example: How's one person practicing self flagellation hurt a community? He's whipping himself and not the community so i dun see anyone getting hurt except himself. and b4 u come up with the the argument that people would see that as an aberration plz use something else because u know that one man's poison is another's pleasure. Please explain that.

    I have gone thru the pages.. My god.. 18 pages and counting. Might hit 2000 and be forced to close before we have any solution.

    The problem seem to be that the title of the shoot is sleazy and selling sex. If we are to change the title but the nature of the shoot remains. Will it be any better?

    As I suggest, if the title is the problem, do a drop down form like B&S. Then, organiser can't choose "sexy", "kitten", "whip", "Cup" etc...

    Then the problem will be solved.

    How about:

    "sexy" = thirst inducing.
    "kitten" = very young furry cute animal.
    "whip" = taming tool.
    "cup" = triangular Kopi milk container?

    Not so bad but I think we should really rely more on dictionary.com

    I don't think anyone of us have anything against advertisers earning a buck, that's business. But when the advertisers are the ones giving GWC an excuse for their escapism, should't we start with the advertisers? To express an opinion of disapproval is not being elitist, it's a personnal opinion. If this opinion is shared by others and the admins/mods, there's nothing wrong with it.

    At this point in time, we are asking the admin/mods to take the lead and I hope and believe that they are ready to take the lead. You are right to say that as forumers we don't have the right to "go out and police", not at this point in time anyway, but hopefully in time to come we can develope a culture where we don't have to depand on the admin/mods to be the bad guys everytime, we as a community can also help to shape this forum.

    One step at a time. If there's no seller, there's nothing to buy.
