The under-18 crowd (who we admittedly do know surfs here regardless of rules) are not considered for the sheer and simple sake that they DO NOT belong here - therefore why should we cater anything to them?Not on the main site, signing up for the forums is 18. As for the forums, I believe I answered this. Them breaking the TOS doesn't do anything against the fact that they are still here. Even if you don't think they should be taken into account, the majority of what I've said is still valid.
Hey mate, if you want underage material to read and/or wank to, I'm sure there's plenty of sites on the web which have it. I'm not going to try and find them.I shouldn't have to mention that what you're talking about and what I'm talking about are two completely different entities. Shareholders certainly are not in any way the users of this site.
Like I said, I know it's more of a Monarchy. I'm just not sure why you're trying to make it out like it's not.
Clearly he's not heavily involved with the site though, and we could let more things slip through and allow said leeway if we wanted to use it. That's what I have issue with.
Do you remember the title and/or author of said story? I was so sure I had at least skimmed every story in the library, yet am sure I would have remembered this one.Nope, no such list of stories we bounced was kept, although I do remember the theme of the story that created the firestorm.
It involved a spoiled and corpulent seven year old compulsive eater who gained so much weight that she broke the back of her birthday pony, killing it - and her indifferent reaction was simply to whine for more cake. The graphic portrayal of obvious parental irresponsibility and animal abuse created a firestorm that directly led to my becoming the curator of the collection.
What everyone agreed on was that the pony story was too much. It was yanked immediately.
According your join date the pony story was gone six months before you signed up. It was probably only up 2-3 days before drawing massive complaints from the general Dimensions community. I've only seen such a vocal community negative reaction one other time..Do you remember the title and/or author of said story?

Ah, I didn't join the forum until quite a while after I had started browsing regularly. So do you remember the author or name?According your join date the pony story was gone six months before you signed up.

Well, the writer I am speaking of was not trying to address that issue in this particular story. He was simply showing in a series of flashbacks what a jerk the main protagonist had been, using his abuse of the chubby child and the grandfather as an example..
But I've wanted sometime to write a story about how it is difficult sometime for a child to be rejected because he is overweight. Because I wanted to tell that what makes us is not our aspect or the fashion standards, but who we are.
Perhaps the writer you are helping wanted to tell that at his manner, but This situation is perhaps too real and too rude to be used in a story. I've never written this story because of that.
That's fucking bullshit and you know it.Why do we have such a law? Because here in America, abusing, traumatizing and/or exploiting children, even to vilify an evil character in fiction, is held to be wrong in many quarters. It is part of a general social objection to child porn and abuse. The owner of the Dimensions website has agreed to respect this feeling by making a law against it.
Personally I agree with this position or I would not hold the post that I do - but that is not the point. It is his site and he has a right to make the laws. I know that you understand and accept this. I wish everyone could.
Nope, I don't know that at all. The statements you quote supported and validated Atilde's post and was addressed to him, so I know he agrees. The unnamed author I was referencing in my example understood the logic as well, as obviously did Forgotten Futures and Blame Picasso.That's fucking bullshit and you know it.
I get more enjoyment out of just these e-trade commercials than the entire show they run within; had to look them up on youtube.Thanks to Observer for keeping our library a place that has some taste and decorum. Stories such as the two mentioned above are unecessary and would reflect poorly on those of us who frequent the library.
Kudos to Risible on the awesome stock trading baby avatar, I love those commercials. I relate because I too, think clowns are just plain creepy.
and you know, you have the power to dream, some of us dont want to read it. dream it, but keep it to yourself if you there are controversial ideas like underage involvement or other socially unacceptable ideas.If we want to have liberty, we have to know what is the respect and the limits between us.
No, it is sure, we have not the right to do everything, But we have the power to dream.
