The message you're trying to access has been removed from the boards. The most likely reason for this is that the message violated our Fool's Rules about appropriate content.

If you had seen the message you would know it got deleted for some choice words. Heck, a few of us may even get banned by it.Some people really need to lighten up and accept that people are different. People who get offended are looking for something to be offended by.
Some people really need to lighten up and accept that people are different. People who get offended are looking for something to be offended by.There are posting guidelines. If your post violates those guidelines in the view of the Fool, they pull it. The Fool also chooses to have a means (fool alert) for people to notify them of posts that may be outside those guidelines. The fact somebody may be different does not give them the right to mold the site to fit their tastes. The Fool has every right to dictate what content is on their site. "The offended" have every right to expect the site to reflect the guidelines publicly outlined.I think the people that need to lighten up the most are the ones that post unacceptable material (as outlined in the guidelines), often knowing it is not acceptable, and they whine about it getting pulled.I don't FA posts. So I am not in the "offended" crowd. But, I whole heartedly support the Fool's right to have the site they want to have. Every post I have had pulled deserved to be pulled.... and if ever one didn't deserve it in my view, the Fool in owning this site still has the right to whatever subjective judgements they want to make regarding their property, this site.
Julie, dearest, please repost it here! It had to be damn good for 'them' to take it down.....UncleGuido, looking for juicy items LOL
Fascist!Kidding!LMAO - Indeed. You could probably get 50 concurring opinions off of PA on that assessment.I would most closely describe myself as a classic liberal much in line with Milton Friedman and "Capitalism and Freedom". Others classify me as many things...... heartless bastard, right wing nut, Bushie, moron, fundie. :-)
You know I adore you.
Julie, Question for you...since you've had some posts of yours removed lately...you have an idea who the culprit<s) were? Reason I'm asking is that I had one pulled today...the first time ever...and I have gotten a lot of bitching about my posts as well. Q2: Does someone have to flag a post to Admin to get it posted?UncleGuido
Q2: Does someone have to flag a post to Admin to get it posted?No, I don't think so. They run word scans every now and then and remove certain posts.I've had a few of my posts removed. I don't know who did it, and I don't care. I knew when I posted it would be somewhat questionable, and even noted in the subject "Adult" and then warned again on the first line. It was pulled withing 15 minutes.Welcome to life.Mike
and I have gotten a lot of bitching about my posts as well.Hmmm....maybe a lesson....or something....here?
There are other sites with the same general sort of title that have no such limits. However, I do have to wonder what on earth she said!If this is the Sex and Relationships" board, it does seem a bit odd not to be able to talk about... sex.. in other than euphemisms.I guess the owners must be Bushies or at least Republicans.RV
what might that lesson be???????that there are a bunch of prudes on this forum?Guido
Vermonter, you voice my sentiments exactly! But I doubt the owners are Bushies or Republicans....loluncleguidoatlanta
All,It was a poll asking about your favorite names of a woman's most private part. A few of the names were provided. Julie tied it to politcal issues, I believe one of the women's rights groups was trying to claim a certain word rhyming with hunt. It was a good poll. Too bad.-spookysquid (relurking)
This is a sex and relationship board, but it is located on a financial site. If the site itself were about sex, then I would understand folks being upset about not being able to post explicit information. But a financial site has every right to say that they don't want sexually explicit information posted.
that there are a bunch of prudes on this forum?BWAH HA HA ha ha ha....I am so not prude. But then I don't take a topic about someone's husband's illness and turn it into a stand up suicide routine. That is just bad taste.Anyway, do you notice you are using war tactics by dehumanizing the posters here? You call everyone 'prude'...instead of 'humans with actual emotions attached just like you'....it's easier to get into a shouting match with someone you have labled vs. on you have to empathise with.But it then again, I also read your post to say you were getting complaints on that other board, just like the other poster does....so why are you bringing this back here?Buffy
It was a poll asking about your favorite names ...And it wasn't even on this board was it? I believe it was on the USA board and lead to a discussion between Julie and I. I think people are getting confused.Buffy
Yes, it was on the USA. Julie has prefered to host her polls on out of the way boards so as to aviod too much undo attraction. Of course she then adverts them on other little traveled boards like PA, but I'm fond of USA and very glad she is there. I don't think there's any confusion as the second post in this thread was the first to encounter the pulled post message of love.-spookysquid

Won't somebody think of the children?CiB(7 of 10 California voters agree, you can't lose with that argument.)
Shouldn't you be having marathon sex or something?
I guess the owners must be Bushies or at least Republicans.I'm sorry y'all, but I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ask you to stop using the term "Bushie". Could be misconstrued. Especially on this board.WTH(smile)
I don't know, a discussion on specific sexual acts with a prostitute and how much that will set you back would be "on topic" and very relevant to the financial success of sex addicts.LOL. Did anyone see the news show a few years back about the internet turning the oldest profession into amature hour? It was out of Los Angeles, I think, and the gist was that competition from women setting up shop on the internet was driving down prices and that the vice squad lacked the resources to even attempt to police it.Then there's the recent Forbes article (Valentine's Day this year)Wife or whore? The choice is that simple. At least according to economists Lena Edlund and Evelyn Korn, it is. The two well-respected economists created a minor stir in academic circles a few years back when they published "A Theory of Prostitution" in the Journal of Political Economy. The paper was remarkable not only for being accepted by a major journal but also because it considered wives and whores as economic "goods" that can be substituted for each other. Men buy, women sell. Economists have been equating money and marriage ever since Nobel Prize-winning economist Gary Becker published his seminal paper "A Theory of Marriage" in two parts in 1973 and 1974--also, not coincidentally, in the Journal of Political Economy.http://www.forbes.com/2006/02/11/economics-prostitution-marriage_cx_mn_money06_0214prostitution.html But I can not imagine a lot of interest on this board for these topics when we have Breezy's love life to discuss. Regards,Prometheuss

The bad men are making them do porn and all those pictures were taken of girls that were forced to do it.That was my mom's story.But even at the tender age of 12, looking at my friend's dad's smut books....those girls didn't look like they were being forced. Looked alot like fun even.Then now we have Discovery shows on the Bunny Ranch...and some of those ladies have left careers to work there. No one is chained to a couch....well unless you pay for it.And this internet porn explosion just tells me that there are MANY MANY MANY females that want to show off. I mean...there are thousands, if not hudreds of thousands of them on the internet all the time. They aren't all being forced...and many of them are enjoying making the money.Oh well....just wish this country would get over it's sexual hangups and delusions.Buffy
But I can not imagine a lot of interest on this board for these topics when we have Breezy's love life to discuss. Regards,Prometheuss-----------What love life?
Shouldn't you be having marathon sex or something? I have to go to work occasionally.CiB
But I can not imagine a lot of interest on this board for these topics when we have Breezy's love life to discuss.I've got my scorecard.CiB(I think this inning we are looking at a double and a couple of errors. No homeruns so far, though a few batters have come all the way home.)
Oh well....just wish this country would get over it's sexual hangups and delusions.Buffy I think it's the ol' biological imperiative in force for this one.Guys (as a general rule) don't like to share and want to know that the kid they are supporting belongs to them. A woman with a history of prostitution is going to have a hard time finding a guy to marry. Period.So she can't do it. Frankly, I really don't think there's too much wrong with the higher class hookers. Heck, the Mayflower Madam had health benefits. What could be better than that?But because she had so many partners, and for *money*, she can't be trusted. This crosses over from the bedroom to her public life.God forbid one of those high class hookers should want to go into politics or work around children. Anyone who found out about her past would see her life as begining and ending between the waist and the knees.Funny how people don't look at gigilos that way. Most people say "It's a nice job, if you can get it."I think it's because men are ALWAYS seen as the conquror. Boss diddles the secretary, he's got power. Male secretary diddles his female boss, he got one up. 14 year old student does his teacher, good job dude. I have heard of the most inappropriate relationships, and in each case, the one who has the exterior plumbing was perceived as getting power from it.Amanda
Geodesy:This is a sex and relationship board, but it is located on a financial site.Which begs the question: Why on earth would a "Sex and Relationships" board be considered to be part of a financial site in the first place?Hmmmm....RV
Maybe because there are some folks who can ask relationship and sex questions without being crude and shocking?
It was a fun poll ;-)~j
Yes, very. It was a shame. Maybe an unofficial poll, where we see how creative we can be in posting it, like my favorite tree is the pussy willow, or something like that.-spookysquid
Yes, very. It was a shame. Maybe an unofficial poll, where we see how creative we can be in posting it, like my favorite tree is the pussy willow, or something like that.-spookysquid I'm finding it hard to understand why anyone cares. Most of the terms are either offensive or so damn cutesy that I wouldn't be caught dead using them in the first place.For public use, you can refer to your vag1nia or privates. For private use, use any bloody thing you want, just don't make me read it.Amanda
I believe, and Julie can correct me if I'm wrong, that one of the points of the exercise was to illustrate the ridiculousness of it while at the same time empower women to reclaim the naming rights of their body. I'm sure I'm not dead on, but something like that. The bonus is, it's completley juvenile.-spookysquid
empower women to reclaim the naming rights of their body.How about body fluid? Let's see, we have:FlemLugySnotMucusMucinGreen gooWet oneBoogieWow, sure do feel empowered. Should we do toe jam next?it's completley juvenileI agree. I realize that the words that we use shape our reality, but I also find it rediculous that searching for words like these is somehow going to empower me. I wasn't buring bras in the 70s. I didn't need to. I'm not worried about trying to get into a field that I enjoy and am qualified in because I don't have to be. I am already empowered. My mother's generation and all the one's before that fought for things like voting rights, have empowered me. I am sitting in the catbird seat. There's no other way to say it.I am also of mixed race. I will not own the "N" word by using it in a public forum. It's bad manners and crass. The same holds true for certain other words in the english language.Insisting that use of these words will somehow empower me to name my body parts, well, why? They're my body parts. They have perfectly good names in the medical community. I use a few euphemisms so as not to offend, and I'm happy. Just what does not claiming those rights mean? My body is my own. I decide what happens to it and I'm a relatively well adjusted individual.I don't get it. Amandap.s. Not picking on you. REALLY not getting the point of this.
just don't make me read it.Amanda Why don't you just skip reading it then? There were several warnings and opportunities to just click "next".~j
Why don't you just skip reading it then? There were several warnings and opportunities to just click "next".~jThis whole thing reminds me of dealing with kids. They push and push to see what they can get away with.I see this thread as the same thing. It really served no purpose, but you were free to start it.Unlike this thread, when kids get caught, they generally stop.
Well, mommy, maybe you could just "stop" yourself from being so tormented by a POST, by not looking, if you can tell the subject isnt up to your particular standards. Doesnt seem all that difficult to me.~j
Julie,I think the exasperation that many express is that you post these things and then get upset that they get pulled. While those of us who are being alerted to your polls don't tend to like them anyway. And it isn't because they are sexual in nature, but because we really don't see the point of the poll. If you want to put these polls on the USA board, then go for it. You seem to have some buddies there that don't mind. But you still put links up here and those that are interested are already going to the USA board and the rest of us aren't really interested.

Totally not me. link please.Tho i appreciate u stepping up and voicing your opinions, I hardly think you speak for "Everyone". You are free to ignore the invites to the polls.One of the Icky things about S&R is the overbearing nature of a few. But that was a problem long before I ever posted an invitation to a poll here. ~j
Let's see, because I don't see the point in your polls, I shouldn't read them let alone respond to them.One of the Icky things about S&R is the overbearing nature of a few. But that was a problem long before I ever posted an invitation to a poll here. ~j And yet you still post here. Things that make you go hmmmm.Tell you what, I will follow your advice. I will no longer respond to your polls. Is that better?Amanda
Crude and shocking? I never got to see the post in question, so I cannot comment.
I don't get it. Amandap.s. Not picking on you. REALLY not getting the point of this.Okay,So I did a terrible job of splainin it. I'll leave it to Julie then.-spookysquid
So I did a terrible job of splainin it. I'll leave it to Julie then.-spookysquidSome people you just can't 'Splain things. This is one of those occasions. Don't forget to mark the players on your score cards for future reference. Let's all move on. ~j
Crude and shocking? I never got to see the post in question, so I cannot comment. You'd think no one has ever talked about the female anatomy before. It wasn't crude or shocking. It was explicit. Anyone who wants to see it, send me an email and I'll forward on the pulled post that had the results included, up to the time it was pulled.And that people would consider it so outrageous, just points to how politicised women's reproductive organs are. Cervical cancer, Aids, Abortion choices? All being decided on by the people most likely to get "Grossed out" talking about V*ginas. Wake up, people ;-) ~j
We aren't grossed out by v*ginas, we are grossed out by classless, useless polls discussing them with no apparent point other then to shock.
We aren't grossed out by v*ginas, we are grossed out by classless, useless polls discussing them with no apparent point other then to shock. That's interesting that you would be so judgmental. I thought it was someone... perhaps you.... that blabbed about some one night stand thing with another poster from TMF.Classless and useless? To you, perhaps. But you have a whole other agenda. And please quit using "we" I have no idea who you are referring to except for YOU. Mine is about politics and sexual issues ~j
Mine is about politics and sexual issues ~j --------------No. Yours is about pushing YOUR politics and sexual issues on others.
You know... I would say "Stop it you two or I'll spank you both."But somehow I don't think either of you would consider that punishment.
Pushing? I didn't know anyone was MAKING you read every piece in a thread. We are free to choose what we do, say and think. Nobody FORCES people to do things other than the military, wives and your personal dominatrix. LOL"Ouch. Again, Mistress...it feels so good."Uncleguido
Sl*t.HEY, isn't that one of the words that got your post pulled!?Oh, no, wait, wrong vowel. Nevermind, my mistake.Moral outrage is a funny thing, isn't it?
HEY, isn't that one of the words that got your post pulled!?Oh, no, wait, wrong vowel. Nevermind, my mistake.Moral outrage is a funny thing, isn't it?================================Nope. In this case, it's language that's funny.........
What I thought was funny was the moral outrage of a S*** objecting to the use of the word s***.
