Will I get another warning and more people disliking me if I post a picture with reference of 9/11?
P.S: It doesn't show anyone plunging to their death

You just asked the question. What do you think will happen? General rule of thumb is if you have to ask yourself if the image in question is appropriate then you probably shouldn't post it.

I'd avoid terrorism and mass genocide as a source of humour altogether.

👍

Let me ask you this: would a picture of Nagasaki disappearing under an atomic dustcloud be made any funnier by a humourous quip?

Right.

Shouldn't be against AUP, since it is basically just a girl in a bikini. :)

But it's not just a girl in a bikini. Keep in mind GTP isn't an adult forum.

EDIT: Too late.

Hrm, dunno about you, but I've never seen a bikini that covered quite so little. I'm going to temporarily remove that and have a little discussion about it.

[edit] Looks like no discussion is required. It's already been voted off the island. Take the hint, chaps.

I thought a split second about asking a mod first and I also remembered a mod once saying ( I think it was Famine ) : As soon as you start thinking that sth might be against the AUP, it probably is.

But then I looked at the facts. Ok, the woman didn't have small breasts and the way Hulk was holding them was ehm kinda putting even more emphasis on them. Yet google the word "bikini" and you'll find a lot of breasts that aren't covered by a lot more. Add "small" and you'll find a lot of worse pics.

I mean I censored the pic myself and thought about adding a little more black, but the funny aspect in the pic kind of requires a certain amount of breast, at least in my opinion.

I'm not arguing here, it's your forum, your decision. I accept it and I will act accordingly in future. But I still think that the funny part is really dominating the sexual one. It's showing two breasts, not even totally nude and that's it. No vagina, no sexual poses, no male involved.

Being an M.D. in about 2 years and having had quite a lot of psychology, sociology and psychiatry I really don't see any harm for the mind of minors.

Then again I'm not from the USA ;)

Well, I don't think the bombing in Nagasaki was funny at all. And if someone posted that picture you would know that people are dieing and yoou would probably remove it. Totally normal, like the one I posted a few months ago.

But this picture I was about to post, yes it involves an airplane and one of the towers but you don't see anyone dieing or any fire at all. I'm just saying this because I remember on the last 9/11 related picture I posted the mod's excuses were that it showed a man plunging to his death. And pictures like that cannot be posted.

Blah, I'm not going to post it anymore. You guys took the funny out of it. 👎

It's not necessarily the picture itself that is the issue. It's the context around it.

Sounds to me like there wasn't any to take in the first place.

I fail to see how the fact that you study medicine is in any way significant, but I found it offensive (and unfunny) and I'm not from the US.

So the destruction of the WTC is funny... how, exactly? We know lots of people died horribly, just like people died horribly at Nagasaki, even if we can't see their individual bodies in a picture of a mushroom cloud.

Blah, I'm not going to post it anymore. You guys took the funny out of it. 👎

I'll submit that there was never any "funny" in it to begin with. You were mistaken. 👎 👎 👎

Relevance of medicine ? I'm used on working with humans, I was trained to understand the way our body works - including our brain,which means besides anatomy and physiology also psychology and sociology. That's why I think that I can judge on what is appropriate for children - at least as much as those people who make and defend the rules on this forum. Nudity is natural and the sexual reference in this pic was absolutely dominated by the incredible Hulk ;). Certainly nothing that psychologically disturbs a young human's mind.
What are these rules ( not posting sexual content etc ) for ? First of all protecting children I guess. And maybe keeping some kind of intellectual level. While the second aspect certainly is questionable regarding that pic , I don't see a problem with the first one.

You didn't like it, that's ok, but funny pics always tend to polarize.

I realize that it might be on the edge ( maybe it indeed is ) for some people and over the top for others. I don't think so, but hey, who cares ? Decision made, I accept it.

No. Your degree means crap compared to what the desires of the person who owns this forum are. Jordan could say no nudity because he finds it icky and girls have cooties, and as far as I am concerned it is good enough, because he owns it. Until your medical degree can take Jordan's ownership of this site away from him you cannot be a better judge of the appropriateness of any rules on this site.

Did you ever consider that Jordan doesn't want to risk losing potential members because their parents may find something offensive, or that in some cases (didn't see your pic so I can't say) if something falls within a pornographic realm it could create legal trouble for him?



But at the end of the day this is a site mainly targeted toward fans of Gran Turismo, a game rated T for Teen by the ESRB and whatever the equivalent is with the European ratings boards, so the goal should likely be to attempt to not do anything that would possibly create an environment more mature than that.

Not to mention that we try to keep the general tone of the forum at a level just a little above closeups of boobies with the nipples incompletely edited out. Or mass murder jokes, for that matter.

Besides, the Internet has plenty of places to find that.


And when did you start quoting me in your sig? I just now noticed that.

No, no, no. I don't think it is funny.
I just remember that you guys said the real reason why you guys gave me a warning was because in the picture there was a man. Falling to his death! The picture I was going to post didn't have anything like this.

Stop the discussion. You said that it involves the plane crashing into the tower. Do you not think that SOMEONE might have been on that floor? Someone died as soon as that plane hit the tower. Theres no need to discuss this any further. Stop trying to give yourself a reason to post the stupid picture. No ones going to get a laugh out of it because you've made such a big deal out of it.
If you have to think about whether or not you should post the picture in the thread beforehand.Don't Post It.

Period. I don't want to see this thread shut down because one person thinks a particular image is funny in some way even though it is a very sensitive subject to the rest of us.

Got it?

Edit: Danny and Sweets, nice pictures. I chuckled a bit.

"Jordan could say no nudity because he finds it icky and girls have cooties, and as far as I am concerned it is good enough, because he owns it." YES, no doubt about it. The rest of the quote though indicates that you didn't ( want to ) understand my post. This picture is not harming anybody. Not even 7 year old boys and girls in any way.
Young children won't see a sexual aspect, they'll see Hulk. Those who see an sexual aspect are free to do so, since they are obviously old enough. No matter how you put it, at the end of the day it is mild nudity with very little sexual reference ( obviously depends on your cultural background to a certain degree ).
Of course there are other reasons not to like that pic and I totally accept those, as I already pointed out.

Did you ever consider that Jordan doesn't want to risk losing potential members because their parents may find something offensive,
Not really, but of course it is a valuable point.

or that in some cases (didn't see your pic so I can't say) if something falls within a pornographic realm it could create legal trouble for him?

Definitively not. I think I can describe it without violating the AUP. It was a toy Hulk with his arms raised positioned under ( quite big, probably fake) breasts of a woman, who was leaned forward. So Hulk was holding them. I blacked out the nipples ( I obviously forgot a few pixels and Duke found them ;) ) and that's it. Hulk's expression on his face was adding to the funny. But hey - no loss for this forum, it certainly wasn't the funniest pic in the world, but it made me and a lot of people I know laugh so by its very nature it fitted right in here.


But at the end of the day this is a site mainly targeted toward fans of Gran Turismo, a game rated T for Teen by the ESRB and whatever the equivalent is with the European ratings boards, so the goal should likely be to attempt to not do anything that would possibly create an environment more mature than that.

That's a point, although GTplanet is so much more as we all know. Discussions about politics, religion and economy on this forum are also far above Teen level but I agree - some parents might find it offensive, which is reason enough not to show it.

Not to mention that we try to keep the general tone of the forum at a level just a little above closeups of boobies with the nipples incompletely edited out. Or mass murder jokes, for that matter.

I can live with that, it's your right. End of discussion from my side. But i bet, at least on first impression, it made you smile aswell ;)
