Title: Pornography in Avatars
Post by: ALPHA. on November 17, 2011, 06:23:45 PM
There's a certain user with an animated male genitalia in his avatar. Is this acceptable?

Why not? I'm sure the same uptight prudes who care about evil anatomy would get mad about all the anarchism symbols too. Screw 'em, they can adblock it.

My intentions are not ulterior. I prefer to be able to browse this forum in public places without male members littering the screen.

It's a private forum. I certainly hope the owners can control its content. If they think it's in the best interest of their service to display pornography, by all means. However, I will state my preference unremorsefully whether they happen to value it or not.

To address your statement for what it is -- a fallacy -- I will give you a firm no. I prefer individuals owning themselves along with their forum servers.

If people want to block people from posting pornography on their property, that should be their right.

Yes, I know it's a private forum.  But even if you don't have any power, your character comes out in your constant attempts to censor others.

That's your perspective. Sadly that is not a testament to its accuracy.

Yes, it is a private form, not however your private forum. Also nudity != pornography you have internet access as good as most other forum users to figure out if a cartoon Dick waving in the air really constitutes porn or just cheap comical graffiti.

It's not mine. It is Theymo's and he might value and agree with my opinion. All I can do is put it out there.

Historically, after seeing somebody trying to sell nude shots publicly for BTC and reprimanded, Theymos will likely agree with me.

You may be right.  It's unfortunate for the community that Theymos has an irrational attachment to you, and doesn't do anything to rein in your constant attention whoring and scamming.

Post by: Matthew N. Wright on November 17, 2011, 07:01:52 PM
It's actually not theymos's forum either. It's sirius's.

For the record, I messaged theymos asking him if my avatar was acceptable hours before this thread started. I consider it a work of original art that reflects a current event. I also have tons of other animated GIFs that do not involve flailing animated genitals that I can easily switch to if theymos asks me to.

What's the progress on the domain?

They were reprimanded? I must have missed that, as someone selling adult services that should have been a reprimand I received myself should it not?

I personally find a cartoon Dick less offensive than people forcing me to look st their face in any thread they post in, sorry self portrait people.

You're referring to Sabi and his enhanced Asian bride then. Being vague just makes you look like you have a poor memory or are too lazy to check you're facts.

Are you talking about that guy who posted what looked like a minor with a tattoo around her hoohoo that got edited by the mods?

Or are you talking about the guy posting TITS FOR BITCOINS in another thread that is still easily viewable?

I wager, that if a member is allowed to post photos of a woman's tits (both NSFW and illegal in some countries) then I should be able to present a work of art roughly based on a current event that I think reflects the feelings of the forum members.

This was way back when. Like when Bitcoins were just nickels and you could only purchase Spongebob stamps and pencils with them. Some guy flashed himself in his unkept glory and asked for Bitcoin donations. It was quickly removed.

I am all for NSFW warnings and such. I'm also completely capable of abiding by rules of a forum. The problem is that there are no rules to this forum, and although I've already asked theymos if my avatar would cause the mods any grief long before you got wet over it, I still think that if someone is allowed a bare tits thread then I think a cartoon 'arm' waving at bruce is fine.

EDIT: On a side note, I find it quite ironic that someone who would post their personal sexual fantasies of liking it "hard and rough" and claiming that women "orgasm in admiration" to him would be such a prude about a cartoon wang. Learn something new everyday.

No you're not.  No one is disputing the rights of the forum owners to do what they want.  You are yet again advocating the suppression of content that you, personally, don't like.  Whether you do so by lobbying the owners of a forum or the leaders of the government, it is your belief that you can and should actively try to restrict the expression of others.

If the forum owners receive sufficient value by discriminating against certain content on their forums, why not?

It's just as restrictive as me choosing not to sleep with certain women. It's my body. If somebody is paying me not to sleep with someone, why not?

Again, it's a matter of property rights; not whims.

Before he went on a bragging spree on somethingawful, I actually liked Atlas a lot. But about 20 pages into his grossness, I started getting a sick feeling in my stomach. The kind you get when you get a friend an interview and goes to it naked. My opinion of Atlas has changed drastically from that little stunt..

Even I can be a clown on these forums but there is a difference between obvious trolling and sadistic and robotic admissions of ridiculousness.

He says "unremorsefully" because he doesn't understand the precious "value" he's trying to achieve has become worthless. His ego needs a drive-by deflating.

Matthew, I was the one who left you. Heh. I have a feeling you don't handle breakups well.

Remember when you were on the phone with me saying you wanted to fly to Korea and I was trying to tell you to be smart and wait until you were 18, to not use your 'life savings' of $2k for it and to not kill yourself but instead just let us show you some important skills that could help you get over emotional ups and downs, make money for yourself, etc? Remember how I introduced you to lots of people who ordinarily would have called me crazy since you're 17, but I trusted you on your word which you never kept?

This is not about 'breakups'. This is about handling trolls. I didn't handle trolling, and you trolled me hard. Congratulations on making other people care about your well-being and caring for you, then being completely irresponsible and walking away when things get difficult.

I didn't 'leave you' when you left the chatroom because I'm not a 12 year old. I waited. We all waited-- to see if you'd come to your senses.

The only thing we have now is a bunch of goons who watch this drama between me and you, making fun like we were gay lovers, a bunch of adults saying I waste my time even talking to you, and the boy inside me who was just like you kicking myself for not doing enough.

I certainly don't blame myself, but it's hard being between a rock (your asshole narcissistic egomaniacal self) and a hard place (the entirety of these overly judgmental forums and SA, all who pretend to know who I am because I make some of the same mistakes as some retards before me).

 


Matthew, you had the option of realizing that I am an individual who is entitled to spend his time where he pleases. Me leaving your group didn't have to be a notable dent in your psyche at all. The fact that it is and continues to be shows how much you truly valued me and that you still do, or at the very least the esteem I provision you in some fashion.

Honestly, who knows where your perspective lies but the fact is you still waste your time on me. To say the very least, I continue to be flattered.

My own opinion (as a member, not a mod) is that the little animation of a dick waving at a photo of a gay forum member who has, for good or bad, set himself up as a self-declared representative of the Bitcoin community at large is probably safe enough for most peoples' workplaces.  If that little avatar is not safe for your workplace, then nothing outside of AOL would qualfity.  If it's a problem, you can turn off images or don't surf the forum at work.

I honestly don't believe I have any problems standing on my own two feet Atlas. I have done more than you before I was 10. What my problem is is that I have started to believe (thanks a lot goons, and yes I'm mentioning you-- wanna fight about it?) that I'm not actually the only one in the universe and that on top of being fundementally wrong on many opinions of the world, it is also possible for me to grow out of certain mindsets. This makes me want to talk less, listen more, and not put so much faith in myself. That's not the same thing as being compromised, because I am a very artistic and talented som of a bitch. It just means that I am no longer trying to ride that through life as mu only asset (which should be bare minimum for everyone tbi).

Heh. You measure your accomplishments in comparison to mine. Interesting.

Yes, Matthew, you have many things you deem as virtues. I just hope you're doing them for you and not to appease people. I certainly don't care about your attempts at humility and how you want to grow. There's more to a person than that.

Yeah, Matthew, you are such a dick for measuring your accomplishments in the context of the conversation. It's like...you know how to interact with people socially or something, you fucking prick. In the future, I want you to only compare yourself to Winston Churchill and his accomplishments so that we may judge you on a grander scale. You know what? No, that isn't big enough. Gilgamesh...I mean, he was the original god-king, and like Atlas, he did what he wanted.

I'm just another person, Matthew. I am not a scarce resource. Realize that.

What you consider to be flattering is just one more person you screwed over shaking their head in disbelief. Trust me, your 'value' is not what I can't seem to get over-- I'm just new to dealing with irresponsible heartless arrogant self importants who probably need a good ass kicking.



Well, Matthew I care about you but not as an inferior but as a fellow man capable of much as he deems valuable. My advice: Don't let me or anybody else control your happiness. I am not worth your energy nor is anybody else. Stand on your own two feet.

I honestly don't believe I have any problems standing on my own two feet Atlas. I have done more than you before I was 10. What my problem is is that I have started to believe (thanks a lot goons, and yes I'm mentioning you-- wanna fight about it?) that I'm not actually the only one in the universe and that on top of being fundementally wrong on many opinions of the world, it is also possible for me to grow out of certain mindsets. This makes me want to talk less, listen more, and not put so much faith in myself. That's not the same thing as being compromised, because I am a very artistic and talented som of a bitch. It just means that I am no longer trying to ride that through life as mu only asset (which should be bare minimum for everyone tbi).

Heh. I actually don't think value needs comparison at all. It should be inherently felt.

Anyone can tell from my posts that appeasing people is the last thing on my mind when posting here. Realizing I have made a mistake though makes me stop and think. I'm extremely self aware, and so I am often very unaware of my social surroundings. I have learned however that through communication, even enemies can become friends, but there is of course a time when you should cut your losses. I cut mine with you the other day when I found for myself (not because of other people's opinions of you) that you actually are basing your worth on working at 7-11 and how you treat customers. Basically you dropped to a logansryche at that point.

Now the only person I have left to hound is bitrebel, and he's been gone for ages. Don't flatter yourself Atlas. You started this thread, I'm just commenting.

Yes, Matthew, you are special. You have your flaws. Yes, Matthew, you love your enemies. We are all so very proud. Pats for Matthew.

I find it funny that you think I actually worked at 7-11. I talk business with the manager there from time-to-time. Nothing more.

Of course. Heh. To not understand that would be to deny their value -- assuming they are valuable, which in a lot of cases they are not.

Come now. Mr. Philosophy here is telling a biologist that thinks it's all a crock of shit that value should be inherently felt? You are aware of that whole manicheism thing, right? You don't think that applies to emotion? I disagree. I do not think that you can perceive value without basis for comparison. Why else would values differ between individuals but for life experience? Are you arguing for an absolute free-for-all where everyone does what they want? Cause that's Pleasure Island from Pinocchio, and it'll turn you into a jackass. C'mon...we learned that in the thirties from Walt Disney for christ's sake.

Of course. Heh. To not understand that would be to deny their value -- assuming they are valuable, which in a lot of cases they are not.

So you think that there are people that exist or have existed with no value? I would hate to hate the world so much. I think every person on this earth carries a valuable lesson, and I try my hardest to pry it from everyone I meet. My favorite thing to do in this world is watch masters of any craft do their thing. I can spend hours watching a welder weld, or a field scientist out doing his collections, or a musician no one has ever heard of sitting at home playing their piano. I don't care what it is, on some level, everyone has something to add. For you to assume otherwise is very self-absorbed.

Sure everyone perceives differently but to rely on the achievements of others to feel the value of your own is self-defeating. You can't depend on people completely for your happiness.

Feel free to call me a jackass. Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven.

To answer your latter statement -- a strawman fallacy -- I do believe everyone has value. I don't believe everyone is entitled to my time and respect; ergo, valuable people aren't scarce. There is also the chance that I don't value some people. That's my choice. However, it's probable that somebody else can and will value them.

Anyways, it's good that you can derive pleasure from people easily. As do I. To me that is the way to live. I just don't depend on it.
