I don't have access and I don't want access, for the record. So I really don't know how risque it is in there.

However, seems to me if someone wants to look up porn, there's more than enough sites that are free that you can look up porn to your heart's content. I don't get why we have it here on a gun forum.
This is why I am no longer a supporting member. I did not know that there was porn on this sight when I became a supporting member. I was surprised to see it. I contacted Nodku and had him block my access. When I was asked to renew my membership I refused. I can not financially support pornography. If that were deleted I would be a supporting member again. I also think that many people are surprised to see it when they first join. Had I known that it was part of the site I would not have become a supporting member in the first place.

I support the first amendment whether I agree with the topic or not.

I was pretty active on a antique tractor site in addition to this site and a garage site. A couple of my exes coworkers husbands spent a lot of time on porn sites I guess, and they would complain at work about it. It kind of became a running joke, if I was at the computer she would ask " you looking at naked tractors again" or "you looking at naked guns again"?

One time she asked me why I didn't have much interest in strip clubs and the like. This was when she still wanted to be married to me. My reply was why go somewhere and look at fake boobs when there is a better pair of real ones at home that I get to play with now and then, and more importantly are attached to someone I love.

Back to the actual topic of this thread. I found this site while off work the first time I hurt my shoulder, I lurked for almost a year then I hurt my shoulder much worse a second time. I had way too much time to spend on this forum, when I got the first paycheck after I went back to work from the second injury I sent in a money order to become a supporting member.

To me the mods seem to be to lenient side of fair, except Jonm who has closed 2 threads while I was posting replies to them. Just kidding they would have been closed anyhow!!! But maybe not while I was replying.

It is ridiculous to have that thread on a FIREARMS forum. ZG( aka my WIFE) and I have blocked access to that section. She is real and I don't need stupid ****like that to enjoy life. We are supporting members and will continue to be members.

I'll be signing up, as soon as finances allow. I love this joint!. As for "porn"....It's like a radio. Don't like the channel? CHANGE the channel! C'mon....we are all supposed to be adults, here, or at least most of us, anyway.

I see the forum similar to a bookstore or a magazine stand. When I go to pick out a book or magazine, there are sections I NEVER venture into, and have no interest in, but because of the First Amendment, there is not one section that I want removed. I may not understand why one person likes porn (gun, knife or otherwise) or miniature tree culture or oriental cross dressing, but I do not want anyone oppressed because I don't understand it. I still purchase reading material of my choosing there, as I wish to support a business that believes in free speech.

In my opinion, it is a personal choice on supporting membership, I did it simply because I like the forums and info here, so to me, paying some dues to help in maintaining the site and forums is simply the proper thing to do. The moderators seem pretty tolerant,, some other places will knock you out simply for another viewpoint that does not go along with their established opinions.
I have been at this site for a few years, it was time for me to pay up, it's your decision, I just felt it was the better course for me.

Every once in a while someone brings in a bottle of whiskey and we pass it around. I refuse to attend the unicorn bbq's because they're cooking the unicorns faster than we can breed them. I warned them but they won't listen. Twice a year we board the corporate jet and fly to an island that Notdku owns and we conduct business from there for a week. Besides our very generous monthly salary, we get an incredible end of year bonus.

You didn't know all that? Well, now you do.
The mods just use "blood splatter removal" as an excuse for the coed locker room, after much digging and a sizable bribe, I found this photo of the mods last "Executive Meeting".

You decide!

when I originally made the wisecrack that I joined for Tale Trail, I was being tongue-in-cheek. You can look at boobs for free on the net these days no need to pay $20

It's not porn so relax. Not even close. If you are uncomfortable with the female form, my suggestion is treat that thread the way you would treat any other area of FTF you are not interested in. I am on here a lot and I bet I only read about 5%-%10 of the posts. Lack of time and lack of interest in many things posted.

Personally if you would not join this site over this I think that is being a tad prudish. But if you are the type that throws the baby out with the bathwater, more power to you. We all have the right to pretty much live as we see fit.
