    Well gents,

    Obviously the removal of the girls kissing pic from my sig has become a bit of an issue on here. So far it's been mentioned on 2 other threads, mostly on Blazin's and he's a bit fed up with it now.

    I think it's important for us to discuss the issue on a dedicated thread so we can get it all in the open. It's especially important for me to air my views on it too so you can understand my reasons better.

    I'll leave this thread open for a day or 2 and then close it when a resonable conclusion has been made, and most of all accepted. Perhaps not by all, but most.

    Firstly I want to get out of the way the matter of timing. I only became a Mod on Sunday morning and KatieKatie aired her views Sunday too. She also sent me a PM asking for its removal. I consulted the admin team and WE decided it was better to take it off so as not to cause further offense. Now, had I not been a Mod I cannot honestly say what my reaction would have been. I have always maintained that if someone were to complain (other than Blazin lol) I would take it down straight away. I just don't know.

    Now I understand that most are annoyed by Katie's reaction mainly because she's new to the forum and also because she, within her first few posts, gave Blazin a hard time. BUT I want you all to realise that actually for a girl it is actually a pretty offensive image. It's been mentioned a few times that we would all be offended if it were 2 men kissing, it's a good point which still stands.

    Forums rely on their members and the more diverse they are the better. Of course men are the main car enthusiasts in this world but women are more than welcome to join in. They would certainly bring something different to the table.

    It's important to make new members welcome and Katie is no different. She may have annoyed others but if we maintain a friendly atmosphere she should see that and will hopefully fully suit. If you look she already has.

    The sig has gone and it will stay that way. I have only left a link on there so if anyone wants to copy the image to their computer they still can. After a couple of days the link will go too.

    I fully agree that if someone is offensive on this forum the members should be fairly open with their feelings about them. The removal of my sig should not be a channel for airing those view though.

    This is not a "nanny" reaction. The picture is against ASN rules and causes offense to others, simple as.

    Thanks for explaining the reasons further - with you on that it's a good idea to get it out in the open.

    From my point of view I'd agree that it could cause offence but then it's the ASN rules and the policing of those rules which are then an issue because obviously you had the pic up for a good while and no action was ever taken.

    But now that there seems to a new and increased mod presence in place then hopefully there will be a consistent application of these rules in the future.


    Also still looking forward to seeing pics from Katie of his A5.

    I only complained to you because of the row on that perticular thread i could'nt really give a t&*% all though my misses hated it ,So i do understand where katie is coming from if its a woman .....tbh i didnt rate it but wouldnt cause i fuss over it , im just not into dykes especially false ones that are just slappers ,like if it was 2 men kissing i wouldnt be into that either lol... But the only thing i get peed off about which i got a rollocking for ,but alot of people do it is threads being ruined i havent got nothing against anyone including katie if she cuts the high and mighty bullshit with me ..... id rather we all get along and if we got a problem send a pm and be grown up about it ....

    You guys are obviously missing the point of the whole thread.

    If you have no valuable points to make then don't say anything at all.

    It didn't bother me but I can see why it might not be well received by lasses. If it had been 2 men I'd of been disgusted and then quite possibly sick.

    This isnt to start a heated debate or get backs up just an opinion.

    This is where we disagree, if it was so against the rules then why was it allowed by 1st admin & 2nd by the more involved mods at the time it was up, so now 1 person has a moan it is removed, it was only a bit of fun, if it wasnt an issue before was removed, then only change I've seen recently is your standing on AS, IMHO that is.

    I personally always valued your posts & honesty, I hope this remains now you're part of the mod team mate.

    Me too

    I would have to agree all of the above, rules seemed to have been bent in different directions by various people & nothing has been consistent concerning language, attitude & image posting & I mean everyone, kettle & black would be words I'd use, lets hope when these things are now enforced that those enforcing also take heed of there ways aswell as us mere mortals, cause you cant preach then do yourselves, set & lead by example would be expressions I'd use & I believe some members have called this into question recently which they had fair point to if I'm honest.

    I'm sure this post will be reported by her, lol, but if she is then she's fit, lol

    I'm as liberal as anyone but I personally think your old sig was too much Staz. An animated gif will always grab your attention anyway, but the content of that gif was a bit too raunchy for a family friendly forum with no swearing.

    Like most perverts I enjoy looking at scantily clad women with loose morals, but your sig was a constant annoyance. Every time I'd see a post by you I'd have to skip past it, as I view these forums at work a fair bit.

    Now if only there was a way to remove WizBiT...

    LOL.... It's got me laughing too.

    What started off as a serious thread has once again turned into a open mic comedy slot! Brilliant.

    Staz is probably thinking "aaaahhh shhhooooottt.... why did i start this!! Stop replying everyone :keule:"
    :)


    Some how I don't think this thread is going to last the two days as originally stated!!

    It has always been against the rules and yes the mod team never said anything about it before. But the point is that someone has complained. That is the whole point! If I hadn't been a mod and had refused to remove it KK would have simply PMd a Mod and then they would have told me to remove it directly. Different chain but the same result.

    Guys, I like laugh and a joke, and I for one like it when the threads take on a different direction and funny pictures are posted. If everyone is happy then so am I.

    BUT this thread in particular was started specifically to clear the air and allow everyone to air their views, for and against. I'm hoping even KK will do the same. To carry on the conversation as has been above just shows that you don't care about anyone's opinion.
