    i love your sig, like a response to mine...

    if no one makes an effort to improve, then our future will be TheQuestionable... but if we Delete the porns, Control the quality, no other Alternatives... then there will definitely be a better forum for everyone.

    So u wanna be my joker or robin?
    I be joker lor...spice things up...o wait that position already taken by DP. can i be Two Face? Step on me for what? I'm not the one guilty of posting soft porn here or marketing it as you put it. I agree with your statement about controlling the quality but why was it allowed to start to be begin with?

    check my first few post here... like i say, market driven...

    CS is just a platform for them to advertise, we don't control their advertising strategy.

    Only recently most of these threads are getting down the drain... so as their potential clients, you guys should speak up and at least they know it isn't working...

    On the other hand, their method seems to work on the other lots...

    So here, we sought to see what the more active members here think... as much as i do 'dislike' them, we must also see what generally the members here feel about it... if most members think it should be curb, then it gives us more meaning to do it rather than we going against the norms...

    true?

    So, at the end of the day, your comment, was incomprehensible. Too bad.

    Actually, come to think of it, if we ban such marketing style, are we suggesting that censorship is actually ok?
    not really. there is a difference between telling tom and jane to not frolick in the dangerous part of the jungles, compared to not allowing them to touch each other at all. censorship is censorship, i'll give you that, and this is after all, undeniably.. the better form of censorship that you can get today.

    But we are talking about photoshoot, not an expedition into the dark jungle of Borneo?

    I will yield on showing nudity in the thread to attract business, but now, to limit what the businessmen want to say, in order to distinguish themselves. and generate more business, that is censorship. Worst, that is anti-capitalism

    Ok.. Sincerely, how about since its art you don't do and show us an "artistic" self-potrait?

    I am just curious here.. teach me not by what you say but by what you do.. do an artistic self potrait and put it up for people to see, something that shows "the form of your human body" blah blah and let us all learn from a practical point of view "art" as you define it..

    Unless of course .... ?? I leave the "...." for you to fill ...

    What I do, is don't join such shoots. I personally found most of those models really CMI, and no amount of sleazy advertising will change my mind. Ignore them. I censor them, personally and privately, I don't go pressing to smother them to oblivion.
    I woun't say that we're "smothering them into oblivion" just asking them to tone it down as it's getting sleezy.

    I guess we agreed that the sales pitch are getting gimmicky and some are in bad taste, the level of models are sometimes less that desireable and sleazy ads are starting to show their heads here. For you, you chose to ignore and censor them personally and privately. But take a step back, you've been a long time forumer here, how's the "sleeze level" between before and now? Do nothing now and woun't things go the way of SG Girls or some other forum?

    the sales pitch has always been gimmicky...just that the bad taste has been ramped up as you see more and more people advertise here.

    SIN has taught us:

    See what you believe."

    Now meditate on that.

    one thing I don't understand is why are the participant's name hidden or disguised?

    or probably it's always the same few blokes who turned up for those shoots therefore to prevent people from thinking likewise, their identities are hidden

    Same here. These sleazy tag lines, in a way, help me steer clear, and save me from tormenting my eyes lest I click on the links

    Markets do have the ability to wash themselves away after some time.
