Cut out the girls

Post by The Oz Report »

Scare put them there to attract male eyes to the Google Adshttp://ozreport.com/GoogleEarth/37.774802,-122.282671,Alameda, CA, USA">http://ozreport.com/images/GoogleEarth.gif" alt="37.774802,-122.282671,Alameda, CA, USA">(http://ozreport.com/GoogleMap/37.774802,-122.282671,Alameda, CA, USA" target="_new" style="text-decoration:none">Alameda, CA, USA

Scare put thousands of Sunshine, Hooters and celeb pictures in the Oz Report forum to attract readers to the skimpy Google Ads that we run. You can have them turned off easily enough. This helps at work, for example. Just send <http://ozreport.com/emailer.php?476572727920617420536361726520646s74206361">Scare>> a note and ask for the images to go away. Please include your exact username on the forum, and your user number (hover on your username on any forum page and look for something like "u=1234" in the link address). A good email subject line would be "Oz Report decorations".

Yes, please make the decorations go away. They have nothing to do with hang gliding or paragliding and add nothing to the site. Thanks.
I have flown flexwings, rigid wings, paragliders, sailplanes, ultralights, airplanes (no helicopters). 1st flight Oct. 23, 1974.

I disagree. I appreciate Scare's collection for what it is. All those beautiful hills and valleys--reminds of a good xc even while not flying. : )

Yes please reomve them - and anything that is not exclusively related to hang gliding or is decorative in any way - the lines around the boxes, various colours etc. Actually the real reason I want them removed is that I find the female form offensive and it's politically correct at present to say so. You can bet I wouldn't make a sound if you were displaying the girls in neck to ankle cloths but the exposure of various suggestive parts of the female anatomy is suggestive of genitalia and human sexuality and I find such displays offensive. In fact I find all suggestive displays of genitalia offenisve, plant genitalia included so please no pictures of flowers either and I expect animals to be clothed.

Of course, given that it's not my forum and I'm under no obligation to click on, I could always piss off and not keep coming back and looking at the picutures I find offensive.
