Default I'm fed up with Daniel's porn avatars!

Damn it, is this a forum about tennis or what? I am so fed up with this moron Daniel, who's using his whole gay porn collection in his avatars.
Let him put up these pics on websites that are the right place for that, not here. I don't want to be exposed to half or completely naked men all the time (and no naked women either).
Can some guys here really never keep their hormones in check?

Thanks for the heads up. I'll look into that.

Jogy, you're such a predictable being....


Maybe some (very few ones imo) of Daniel's avatars have crossed a line, but I have seen others...that included women showing some flesh, that have might have offended some people too.....but it's no big deal.....

Don't be silly, I think I have the right to look at everything on this forum and I also have the right to get what I expect = that the contents of this forum is about tennis.

If I want to see porn, I can go to a website that has porn as its contents.

I'm so fed up with some sicko's here who feel the need to poison fora which have nothing to do with sex with sex-related pics.

I wonder what would your reaction have been to those avatars if they belonged to a "Daniela" or to one of our lovely ladies here??......
I smell some sort of homofobic thing going on....

It's hard to say where the border line is for this and when it is crossed. "Showing flesh", yes nice - okay! I guess nobody ever will be told to remove an avatar that involves a tennis player wearing no shirt or any female wearing a bathing suit or a bikini in a normal posing pic (implying no further sexual activity).

Not everything can be controlled, but for me personally such a picture as an avatar (which is omnipresent to most people wherever somebody posts) was too much and it would be the same had it been a naked woman and a naked man lying on each other or standing behind each other or whatever.

However, our boss Amanda here will have the final say on it, after all it's her forum

For me it's about common courtesy. There are some younger people here, I think this board is pretty much intended to be enjoyed by people of all ages. if i had a kid or a little sibling or something here, I wouldn't want them to see stuff like that. Moreover, sometimes I (and others are) am in public when I look at the boards, I'd rather not have to worry about what avs will come up so that people will think things of ME. I think some avs do cross a line and actually I'm pretty sure that females here have been told to change their avs before so it's not like any group is being singled out. It's amanda's job to determine what crosses the line and I'm sure she will do that.

You should get your nose checked... If an avatar shows 2 naked men making out, it has something to do with homosexuality, I'm afraid. So then it's gay porn and not heterosexual porn!
BTW, I objected an avatar on WTA world which showed too much of a female behind in my opinion... So I am not excluding any gender or sexual preference, I just don't want to bump into porn on a tennis site!

I'm simply fed up with the exhibitionist behaviour of certain posters. Some posters seem very obsessed about sex and do not let one opportunity pass by to confront other posters with their hornyness. Other posters have the right to be protected from that. If you need to display the fact that you are horny, there are plenty of websites, where you can show all the horny pics you have and if you want to even jerk off in front of your webcam. I guess some people might even be interested in that.

Please note that there is a difference between a thread called "Is Andy Roddick gay?" (because I know what it is going to be about and how it is going to be like in that thread, so I can stay out) and an avatar because you bump into the avatar wherever you post. As a matter of fact, I discovered that Daniel's avatar in a thread about Guga in General Messages, so that his hardly the place where one expects to see gay porn.

Hagar is in the right to express herself (yes, for the record, I think she's female) if she felt offended by the avatars. Probably lots of posters felt like doing the same but they were afraid of being labeled 'homophobic' or 'prejudiced'. Imagine what would be the reaction if a poster like Ducky put up naked pictures of Adriana Lima in his avatar - probably much worse. Nothing wrong in putting up avatars of shirtless men or women in their undies, but by the point it comes to nudity it gets unnecessarily offensive, regardless of sex and/or sexual orientation of the poster.

BTW, I don't hold anything against Daniel and he seems to be a good person.

And I wouldn't go so far to call his avatars 'porn'.
