    Would it be possible for those of you with the little fancy pictures in your posts to think twice before you pick it...

    here's my reasoning- I have 2 girls- 4 & 5. and the 4 year old is home during the day with me. I don't click on links when she is around for the simple reason that I don't want her to see what might be behind the "door"..however- ( I know I can click the box, and not see any pictures)...I do venture here when she is next to me,,either standing, sitting or just walking by...I am not trying to be a b*tch, I just dont want to miss the pictures people put up of their trucks, just because I have to block the risque' ones.

    We don't type "4 letter " words on here, becuase you never know who might be reading....but can't we take the time to pick a different picture?

    please don't bash me for this post, I'm only asking.

    thanks!
    Brandy

    Having two kids hanging aound with me.. I have to agree with you...But we have a lot of younger people on here that like pics like that.. We shouldn't have to ask them to take them off because we can't watch what we are doing... It is just like TV...We need to make sure of what are kids see...Some times it is a inconvenience. But worth it in the end....Dan

    Is my Turtle to risque'? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    On a more serious note you could always choose not to be able to see the side pic's. The option is in the 'profile' area... I understand your position, but risque is pretty subjective. I'd hate to see that kind of 'censorship'...

    <font color=blue> I just posted about one of the newer ones might be a bit much since it actually showed a whole breast ....... I'm not offended by it but I was concerned that it was over the line ....... Is anybody offended by my picture ? Let me know.....

    <font color=blue> I try not to be rude and at least show a little caution before I post something that I think may be offensive.

    I remember your pic was made in reply to my CK5 merchandise I made up with the cowboys... LOL....

    Mmmmmm cowboys.... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Actually to be honest some of the sig pics are going a bit too far. And no just because I can turn them off in my options should I have too. I believe if you asked Steve he wanted this site to stay at a level that if a 13 year old wanted to check it out because they are into trucks they could.... how many 13 year olds would have moms who would not want them to see swearing... probably all. I think the same goes for little cartoons or real looking animations of half naked woman or stripping women.... so lets try to keep it decent, because I for one don't like the ones where it shows women playing on each other of gesturing, it's not cool.....

    I don't know if it is a member thing or not, but I have the option in my display preferences that will turn those pics off. I usually have them off, but turned them on to see what the fuss was about. Turned out to be the dancing girl mentioned above.

    Watch for the muzzleflash!
    I don't think mine is that bad, rather the context in which we joke about is, if changing your options was not an option then I would drop my pic simply because you asked.../forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    good grief, I am looking at these pics we are talking about and fail to see the problem with kids seeing them. I mean, all I see is some cleavage. Is the female form "dirty" or "offensive"? good grief people, its the human body. If your kids cant see that, they must not watch ANY tv cause I see worse than that every day on there.

    oh well, just my opinion i guess. I think the human body is a cool thing. Nothing shameful, or dirty, or offensive, or adults-only about it.
