I agree - there seems to be a large number of avatars featuring womens breasts (or maybe those are the only ones I notice ).

Rather than switching off individual avatars it would probably be more practical to have the option of switching off all avatar displays......

top shelf? i thought there was a no nips policy oO

Can you give me some examples, I appear to have missed them.

Top Shelf?

What an utterly stupid statement to make.

Changing mine just to annoy.

you ought to have changed it to a bottom...
or are you telling the world how proud you are of your manboobs?

either way, neither 'annoy' me, just show you up for what you are

Surely " top shelf " means the the full boob including walnut whips?

OP what you have to realise is that 98.45% of the males on here have never even touched a girl and for them a provocative picture is the closest they will ever get to a real female


Just report any you don't like for the mods to have a gander

I was trying to be polite by saying 'top shelf' but apparently it's an offensive term to those 98.45% that you mention, judging by the reaction it's received. It seems funny that you can have an avatar of a woman's backside stuffed into a camera lens with nothing but a shoelace between her buttcheeks, but you can't say the word a.r.s.e. without it being censored. To be honest, I thought that by putting this is feedback, it might only be seen by the mods. It was merely a suggestion to improve the site usability by a mother trying to protect her kids.

I'm with elsie. My eldest often comes and peers over my shoulder - whilst he likes the cartoons and similar pics, I do have to flick back over to Farmville or something before he notices the 'smut'. I don't even see them... he obviously does, and whats to know what it is and why it's there.

Good idea, saucy avis are fine, but some go way beyond that...

your comment is even 'better' since your newest avatar change

Edited by moderator: "." 27th Jan 2011

Will pass this along to the admin team to see what they say. If you come across something very offensive to you, best thing to do is just report to a mod.

shades of irony, lets create another thread and draw some more attention to this non-issue

seriously i think comments like these come from growing up reading the sun (which incidently has boobs on page 3) and the daily male.

I agree, I get sick of a few avatars on here. Pictures of breasts and a woman bending over in the smallest thong ever! Sometimes my kids are sat next to me & I don't feel comfortable!

How many people have to report an avi for something to be done about it?!

sorry if im going against the majority here but seriously people are complaining about a boobie avi???
so your kids never see any boobies irl or do you cover their eyes???

and if people are gonna want the mature avis banned what about deals for fleshlights, the pics put up for womens sexy undies etc etc

As long as you report it to a mod and it actually is offensive, only one person reporting it would do.


Nope, I reported one months ago as I was sick of seeing some womans bits bent over but never heard a thing back & some have seemed to get worse since then.

And yes, I do try to keep my kids eyes away from womens bits in thongs etc, same as if I'm in public reading the paper in public I don't have it open on page 3 for the world to see. I try and have a bit of respect for other people.

Boobies are fine as long as no nips... the one that bothers me is one of a woman bending over with no knickers on, I am getting sick of looking up her ...!:|

you may have said it before but you were wrong then and wrong now.
if someone finds it offensive or makes them uncomfortable then its not for you to tell them they dont.

as i said in the paedobear thread i dont really have a problem with the avatar but can see why others do.
also i love a good bit of smut but i dont necessarily feel its appropriate to have it there when im browsing for a deal on a kids toy or a tin of beans.
main examples are the bent over woman of shadow1 and loughboroughguys personal photos - maybe not because they are worse than most of the avatars in the style of a kid thats discovered booobies but they are so in your face due to the prolific posting of them.

so which bit am i wrong about exactly.........the beach, the high street or the sun?

stop crying ffs start living in the real world.....the internet is an extension of it

I don;t know what part of the country you live in, but I never see women bent over with no knickers on!

And if I want to see it, I'll google it if and when I feel like it. Don't see why if I'm looking for a deal with my kids we are forced to view it too!

you are wrong where you deceide that everyone that disagrees with you must be wrong. its not for you to say something doesn't offend someone.
stop crying? stop being so ignorant.
internet is extension of real world? the 'real world' where you supply everyone with their opinions as independent thought is disallowed?
hmm seems you live in a real world of your own.

cool - can also disable images on all pages so we can then post some porn and/or offensive rubbish in random threads? good plan.
