Howie, there are number of websites that are far "better" than the biker chic ad. If you want to know how to access them, many of us can explain it in a PM. Be sure to turn off cookies before exploring all your options.

On a more serious note, page peal has been discussed on another thread to no avail. Some of us have turned it off. Now I can't get any classifieds which seems to be an unintended consequence of the reaction to page peal. Classifieds bring money to the Forum, but stimulating people to turn them, and ads, off (I know there's a way to access them and turn off the peal, but I just can't be bothered) seems to be turning people off too. Wasn't this a more subtle hijack than Cuban medicine?

Somebody has to say it.

Absolutely!

The result is it looks like 3/4 of Marathons fall apart and lots of people are upset about various ads. The grossest thing I've seen is 2air's bucket of eyeballs (# 75).

Comments on the Forum about anything do not reflect a collective truth, they are anecdotal and may be accurate, but maybe not.

Gene
But seriously, if we dropped "Karma" because our use here might be offensive to a few religions that so few practice (I'm talking in the US) then how can anyone even begin to justify an ad for "sexy Jesus" that has absolutely no purpose, but to be offensive to Christianity?

What do you think the ads are like on these other sites? Anyone a member of one the other boards? I spent some time on the Sailing Forum but haven't been over there in a long while.

Other Social Knowledge forum communities:
Cooking Forum - Sailing Forum - Early Retirement
Airstream Trailer Forum - Aquarium & Reef Forum
Royal Forum - Book and Reader Forum - Yoga Forum
Volkswagen Touareg Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum
Whitewater Kayaking & Rafting Forum - Yoga Forum
Interference - U2, Pop Culture & Social Responsibility

I belive that one site the Big Board Fourm is not listed in this group.

i've never seen any of the ads in question but the only biker chicks i know where the garb pictured below...

one of the movies at sundance this year is hamlet 2 from the southpark gang...

ads and trailers and posters FOR this movie are on the apple site, google, yahoo and so on...

Hamlet 2 (movie trailer is rated G)

these movie ads are MAIN STREAM stuff, and there is a musical number in this flick with the sexy j man...

so it wouldn't surprise me to see ads in a typical google ad package for this movie.

i seem to recall LOTS of concern like this when jc superstar (musical, album and movie) was released almost 40 yrs ago...

cheers

Correction—grossest thing on this thread is still the bucket of eyeballs (is 2air an opthamologist?).

Actually, the "recurring" champion was almost as sexy as biker chic (that's what happens when you get really old—old ladies look better that young ones [don't take me seriously, maybe]).

And, Great Pumpkin, is that one of you in front of Airstream #845_?

At my age, I'm happy to report that biker chic still has more eye candy than the "recurring" champion.

See! Dangling prepositions will never get complained about.
I also saw the ad.

Some folks don't agree. That's what makes this an interesting discussion.

Respectfully submitted.

I never said my opinion was the only right one.

Just that it is my opinion and since we do have a 1st amendment in our country another hundred posts can be made on this topic. Enjoy.

Actually there are certain things that you cannot say right here, even if you are guaranteed free speech through the first amendment. If you cross a line, you will be put back behind it with a warning and if you do it again you will given warning points. And if you do it again, well, I don't know what happens after that because I have not tried to cross a third time.
You might want to go and review the rules. They spell out exactly what is NOT ALLOWED. The moderators are exercising great restraint right now.
