What is it with all the cheap porn? This board has taken a real dive in content since a number of children have started posting all this porn rubbish. Why must other members wade through 30 posts of porn pictures of Japanese chicks to find EAW related subjects. You want porn, go some where else. I am getting sick and tired of the juvenile delinquents posting pictures of rubbish then oohhing and arrghing over them. Grow up or go away. Or better still, have the moderator delete all the offensive posts.

S!,Mark. I usually dont get into this,as it never changes anything,but I support you 100% in this.I hope to see Admin stomp on it before someone else decides to try and make a buck out of the best Forum around.Notice the constant references to "Go to such and such a site?" Take your tacky suggestions and post them on the appropriate site please,and if I need to be titillated Ill go to it.Just leave us guys alone to "Play airplanes"as my wife puts it. And "No" Im not suppressing freedom of speech,before you make a court case out of it,just expressing a POV.

Mr Tucker,

On 11/8/99 did you not write:

"But, now step back, read all the posts, look at the NUMBER of post in relation to the other sims.....FLANKER absolutly rocks. Always had, always will."

I suggest, sir, that you look at that current number of posts for each sim and note that EAW has left your precious Flanker 2.0 forum in the dust.

WARNING! This post contains siliness and Germglish, read at your own risk! (Der Producers EAW Forum Intelligence Community MisAdventur Hour...Now on Hiatus)

Enter stage left: Herr Flick of the Gestapo, cue Imperial March! Danke...

Hmmmm, interestingk...As I see it mein Herren, zis matter has komt up many times in sie past. It started way back when mit a zertain Herr Chris(zome nummer which I am forgettingk) startingk on der Germglish speakers. Did Germglish stop? Nein. Zen it proceeded mit nasty thingks being said about stories und vhatnot. Did they stop? Nein. But zom of us have been doingk other things und not written in a while. Every 2 or 3 months somevon gets ein hair in der buttocks und starts picking. Zo I haff komt back from mein semi-retirement to speak.

First, it ist nichts porn. If that is vhat you think porn is Herr Tucker, then you need to either get aus more or look it up in the dictzionary. Admin has only once in mein memory said anything about the pictures, und that was because there was ein boo-boo mit the picture chosen. So appearently they do not define the pictures as porn.

Secondly, every zingle 'porn' picture has BABE in der title. Now if you see a thread mit a BABE in der title why would du be thingking it was some insight into techincal vorkings of EAW? Some sort of 'insider code'? Ich am thinkingk nichts. So if you see BABE then don't bother mit it.

Und lastly, this post contains Germglish. You probably vill not be liking that either. To each their own. If you do not vant to see the BABE pictures zen do not look, if you do not vant to read the stories then don't read anything mit Dysfunctional Duo, Flanker or any thread started my me. Which I do not do anymore since Ich have been busy und will be until after der New Year. Und probably not zen if the new Forum people are going to be vining about it.

Anyhow Herr Whizkid you have said you liked der stories so S! to you, he ist ein New Year's cookie und knockwurst. Also S! to Herr Donster who has amused me much und made Helga hit me ven the screen pops up at der wrong time, see alle after der New Year. But if everyone ist going to get hairs in der arses, maybe nichts. Herr Flick ist sad. Gutten Abend mein Herren.

Exit stage right: Herr Flick, looking a trifle melancholy and perplexed. Drop curtain...Danke.

I think the BAbE's of the week was an evil rick done by the EAW forum people. It was a way they could get more than 10000 posts before Y2K. But, who gives a damn about posts.

I say, keep the BABES coming Baby!!!!!

mane_raptor,
What has that got to do with the matter at hand (sotto voce: you pompous windbag)? I also fully support the original poster's complaint. It's no longer an EAW forum, it's rapidly deteriorating into inanity.

By the by, not all the "babe" threads have the word "babe" in the title. See the recent "Porsche" thread as an example.

Mark, lighten up. Here's my 2 rules for avoiding posts with "pornography" in them.

1.) If it says "Babe" in the title, don't look at it.

2.) If the name "CFrancisco" or "Donster" shows up as the starter of the post, don't look at it.

If you pay attention to those 2 simple rules, you'll never have a problem.

Seriously, I don't think it's a problem, the women are clothed (Admin wouldn't allow it otherwise.) You can't deny those people the right to post, so as much as I hate to say it, if you don't like it - leave.

Equally, you can't deny people the right to complain. I can't believe that you would suggest that people who sincerely want to discuss EAW leave the forum because of people who want to post inane, irrelevant junk instead. Isn't that rather *** -backwards?

Since this is a sponsored forum on a commercial site, I'm sure the administrators would like to avoid controversy. A couple of formal complaints to the administrator and/or publisher would probably stem the flow.

Mark Tucker,

You obviously have no idea what "Porn" is.

Whizkid,

I don't beleive I have posted a URL to a Porn site. Only WAR or EAW related Sites.

Judge,
You say that this is no longer an EAW forum.
I beg to differ. The vast majority of posts on this site is related to EAW or The War itself.And I don't think a person that has just 5 or so posts has been around here long enough to know this fact. And if you have chosen not to post much before and have viewed the posts for along time, WHY ARE YOU SUDDENLY COMPLAINING NOW? The Babe posts didn't just start in the last week or so. Guys have been posting them for A LONG TIME!
And it is not just CFran and Donster. So I do not appreciate those who don't know there friggin facts! I suppose now we must not only stop the Babe Posts, but the Flanker Posts, anything humorous, any Germglish, anything political, no advice for someone with hardware/software problems. This because they would have nothing to do with EAW! How many will hang around then?
I will say one more thing and then end this post. I have been registered here since Sept. And I will say that very few people have left, but a hell of a lot have joined in since then! So I beleive that evidence alone shows that this forum is a VERY GOOD ONE BECAUSE OF THE DIVERSITY OF THE POSTS!

Interesting:

Mark L Tucker, registered 09-16-1999, 13 posts so far;

Judge, registered 30-12-1999, 5 posts so far;

It seems to me that you both are very active members, helping others when they have technical problems or need advice on tactics, and you direct them to interesting EAW-related websites, if asked. Maybe you even join in the humour, and contribute to some of the stories. If you don't like some kind of posts or topics, you don't read them.

That's one possibility.

The other:

You are one of those guys who think to have the monopoly of moralty, absolute wisdom, and no forum can exist without your advise and knowledge. Also you think that everyone has to bow to your rules, and help you with your reading-problems, as you obviously cannot read the word "Babe" - nor do you have any clue of the meaning of it. It could also be that you have extreme difficulty in the understanding of other words, like "Porn".

I go with the second possiblity...

And to Judge - I haven't seen any attempt to discuss EAW-related stuff by you, only complaints - so I suggest....NOT to leave the forum, but to add some constructive posts to it!

Karac;

I can't believe what you have written! It's pregidous, presumpuous, and offensive! You've interjected your true self. You've sneaked in a sentence as being a "RULE" for all of us to live by. You should't impose things like that on me because I'm here to learn about my passion; European Air War. This is where I come after the kids and wife are in bed to "play". In this forum I can learn about my computer, strategies of EAW, and pilot skills within the game. I can, if I want, check out the babe posts to devert my frustrations when flights or other computer things go bad. Or browse a variety of theads.

BUT TO COME HERE AND HAVE YOU SAY THAT "THE LORD LOVES A WORKING MAN".

one man's trash is another man's treasure


Well, I hope i've made my point!

Hmmm, yeah ok guitarman. I cant tell if your serious or just stupid. Or maybe drunk, who knows. From your earlier posts I got the impression that you were around 12 years old. Anyway, dont mean to be nasty, but you dont know me...dont have a clue. You took a shot, tried using the "big" words.
But you didnt spell them right.

Anyway, if you (or anyone else) want to get upset about something today, how about thinking about how Boris Yeltsin has resigned this morning. Great timing Boris.
Instead of whining about my silly Steve Martin post, or the beautiful asian women that have been posted lately. Since when are beautiful women a bad thing? If you dont like them, dont look at them. Thats simple enough.

No hard feelings guitarman. Just have fun with EAW. Great game played by a lot of fantastic ppl all over the world.

Happy New Year everyone.

To Tucker, Judge, and anyone else who has a beef about what gets posted here in he EAW Forum.

First of all, I do not recall ever seeing any rules anywhere on Combatsim.com stating that a posting must always be 100% oriented to the Forum topic.

Second, I have served 12 years in the US military, both Marine Corps, starting during the last few years of Vietnam, followed by 8 years with the Army. It may sound corny to the minds of a lot of people today, but I am still; proud to feel that I served my country personally in the interests and beliefs in two things that make this country great, the Constitution and the Declaration of Independance.

Of course, since the web is world wide, I suppose it is possible the two of you and those like you are not Americans and have no understanding of freedom.

For the most part, all here post EAW related material, the rest is what I feel many of these individuals may believe would eb interesting to their fellow comrades of similar mind. Bitch if you wish, that is your freedom; just don't get too pissed off, or as Herr Flick puts it, "Ein hair in der buttocks" if most others here choose their freedom to totally disregard and ignore your complaint. That's their freedom too.

So, to put it in a nutshell, "Get a life!"

Pharaoh, (and to all others who served),

I just read Major Lee's post and now your's.

Thank you, it was your service, and the sacrifice of others that made this country great. At the start of the new century let me say i am proud to "know" you. Someday I hope to shake your hand.

The definition of pornography is "images which graphically depict sexual activity". A picture of a girl in a bikini, or a bra, does not constitute pornography in any State in this Land! Even nudity does not constitute porn; only the depiction of sexual activity. As a photographer, there is an odd contradiction with which we must handle: if you paint a picture of a nude woman, then it is considered art, but if I take a photo of that same nude woman, then I am some kind of moral degenerate pervert after your babies. I know it is unfortunate, but there are still some people who must be told not to run with scissors, and that they shouldn't look at things which they don't like...
Caution: Do not scroll down any further if you do not wish to see a scantily clad female posing for a photo which does not constitue pornography!!!!

Couldn't have said it better Major, and thank you mane_raptor, sincerely. I think I can speak for all of my fellow veterans, past, present, and future, that a simple note of appreciation is all that was ever wanted in return for the sacrifices made.

By the way, since I have posted a few Alberto Vargas ladies, who, by WWII standards are also scantily clad, I guess that makes me guilty of contributing cheap porn too, hmmmm? Funny, I have heard many things said of Mr. Vargas over the years, but being a pornographer was not one of them. And another 2 cents, just for my own personal interest, I took two years of art classes while in high school. I appreciate the beauty that can be found in most things this world offers us, and yes, that does include the female form. Thank God for the continuance of our species that the said form IS appreciated by most.

Sorry for the rambling, just get irritated by the so-called Puritans. You know, those people who are scared to death that somewhere, someplace, somebody might be enjoying themselves.

So this is the same guy who complained about Hein Kill eh? Haha... Mark, I think you really need to lighten up. Judge, you're right - they have the ability to complain. However, they don't have the ability to tell others what to post. I don't mean to be malicious in saying this, but if you don't like the content, then there's a simple solution - don't read it.

Major, I give in to curiosity - who is the lady in that picture? I've noticed her on your website and on that pic of a P-47 that you posted in answer to Ms. Smythe's post. Just curious... if she's a subject of your photography... I'll have to look into the profession .

Alright gentlemen and ladies, have a great New Year.

Where's the PORN. I haven't seen any. Just good pictures of nice looking babes. Now somebodies trying to spoil good clean fun by criticizing (sp). You want PORN, just "ask jeeves". HEHEHE. He knows where it's at. You won't find any on this thread. BTW; isn't this what we fought several G**D*** wars over. The right to free expression. And please, don't bring religion or anybodies "lord" into this forum. I made the mistake awhile back of criticizing (sp) christians and have regreted ever having discussed it. So, keep those honeys coming. Especially the WWII posters. They're great. (Spoken by a former Vietnam Grunt).

Sorry but the post is not from me, as you can see my name, my real name, is Mark L Tucker. The flanker post come from someone called Mark. Same first name but definitely not me. I don’t even own a copy of the Flanker sim.

If that is true, and I have not checked it out, and I'll take your word for it, then I apologize.

But I do agree with a majority of the posts that if you do not like it, then don't look.

Your point about the lack of specificity in thread titles is well placed, and I do agree with you somewhat on that. (I give a little more latitude, that's all).

However as I pointed out in an earlier post, fighter pilots and beautiful, scantily clad women have always been linked. It is a tradition that started with the first fighter pilots in WWI and contiunes to this day. That is a historical fact, and I do not argue with historical facts.

One may object to the tradition, and if one feels they must, work to change it. But that is done gradully if you want to be successful. History teaches us that too.

One does not, therefore jump in, elbows, knees and feet flying in every direction to accomplish this.

Calling us all children and insulting our intelligence is and was wrong.

Now if you want to discuss EAW, then ask your questions or post your idea. But judging from your actions to date (the newness of your membership and the limited number of posts here to date), I don't think that we will see many EAW related threads in your name.

Happy New Century!!!!! (I only get to say that once every 100 years)

I must be kinda slow duh huh! I thought this site was Combatsim.com, obviously I must have either read the name wrong or my expectations of what a combat sim is differs from yours. EAW, European Air War, lets give it a shot hey. A sim about the Air War in Europe? Nope must be about sim about juvenile postings of semi naked chicks! Yup that’s where I was going wrong. I must confess that I am slightly perplexed at your rationalisation that some one who comes to the forum expecting to find information or discussion on topics relating to EAW, after all that is the name of the forum isn’t it? should then be branded a “wowser” or “moral majority”. I think “your reading-problems, as you obviously cannot read the word "Babe” also need some brushing up on. I cannot begin to fathom the reasoning behind wanting to post infantile smut on a commercially sponsored discussion group. I am sure that there are many sites that can cater for your need, unfortunately this is not one of them. Please, stick to the facts. This is a flight sim related discussion group and thus should be free of “porn” or whatever else that you wish to call it.

Look; you guys obviously don't have a problem starting up EAW and simulating the killing of fellow human beings with big arse cannons. So what the heck is the big deal about a couple of babe posters. Are you that type of individual with the "thought process" that'll let your kid go to the theater and watch some horror flick where people get butchered with a chain saw and wouldn't think twice about it; but you sure as heck wouldn't allow em' to go to a theater where some babe might show her breasts? You need to get with the program here and enjoy our little murder simulator and forget about the historical posters and babe artwork.

Hehehe Tucker, you just confirm it. Your whole purpose is to start flaming here. Went right into the trap - gotcha!

And now to something more interesting - and you, have a good life!

Problem is we are all flying sim planes,,,,
many of the real ones had naked or seminaked BABES on them....Nose Art. What we really need is some good nose art to make the game more realistic...volunteers to pose for same can leave a name and phone number here....
Those dirty, foul minded, sexist, scumbag WWII pilots!.....you know, the dead ones, that dreamed about the life YOU are living. Seems the Germans and Japaneese did not have the same kind of nose art.....perhaps that's why they lost.

OK. I've had a couple of hours to calm down now and think straight.

Tucker (great car, btw), if you were indeed just fooling us into a flame trap, well, zingo, ya got me. If not, it seems obvious you need to get drunk and see your girlfriend a little more often.

In any case, I think it's oh-so-clear that there's just way, way too much testosterone being secreted with all of this simming going on. It may be contributing to premature hair loss and Forum rudeness.

Sitting around on your butt all day flying sims...Sure makes the old blood flow, don't it?!?!

Mild erotica has been around for many a moon. It's the luxery of the young & young @ heart. Tastefully done, which I think these are, indicate that we're still human with acceptable, to me, morals. Mthinks the naysayers have some "sexual" problems. I also think that if it was to get to showing "bare parts" or "acts", most peoples on this board would put a stop to it by voicing their displeasures. These pictures are no more than 40s to 50s pinups done for some light humour & in some cases, historical facts. IMHO.
FWIW,
Good Hunting!

Hi Guys,

I haven't read all the posts here in detail yet, but I will.

I also want you all to know that I think what is happening in here (generally speaking) is healthy. That is, you are all, as a community, trying to work this out.

I hope you come to a mutually agreeable solution.

I actually support the topic starter in this....I mean, it's all right to post a few, but they are actually becoming a problem. This is a EAW-forum. If you want babe-pics, search the internet. They're not hard to find. Don't flood the forum with them, it'll just make it harder to find the EAW-related topics.

Btw., a great number of posts shouldn't be a goal in itself. This forum now has in excess of 10K posts. This means that finding spesific posts is becoming hard enough, and we shouldn't be flooding the forum with stuff that REALLY doesn't belong here...the problem isn't whether the babe-pics are pornographic or not...

It's not a question of morality, it's a question of propriety. I for one do not want to have to explain to my wife and kids, or co-workers for that matter, why there are pictures of half-clad women on my PC screen when I'm browsing what should be an EAW forum. Such content is simply not appropriate here. If you want to view these pictures, fine go ahead. There are plenty of such sites elsewhere on the internet.

The argument that I should just avoid threads with the word "Babe" in the title doesn't hold water. There are and have been several threads without the word "Babe" that contain such images. I'm sure Donster and CFrancisco are careful to ensure that they always label threads appropriately. However, a climate has been created in which it's now deemed appropriate to post such images on this forum and I doubt that everyone will be as careful as Donster and CFrancisco about where the images turn up.

Interesting Judge,

You say...

"It's not a question of morality, it's a question of propriety. I for one do not want to have to explain to my wife and kids, or co-workers for that matter, why there are pictures of half-clad women on my PC screen when I'm browsing what should be an EAW forum."

Leaving aside the question of your browsing the EAW forum on conpany time (does your boss know this?), it seems to me that you do not feel it is appropiate to allow children to view "half-clad women". This must then prevent you from bringing your kids to the beach, watching TV, going to movies, or even the Museum of Fine Arts.

As for the threads with pics and no warning, well in some cases I must agree with you there, but I have noticed that most posters here have "changed" their ways and are now noting such inclusions. However, in your last sentence ("I doubt that everyone will be as careful as Donster and CFrancisco about where the images turn up."), I do note a certain arrogance that IMHO is a very strong put-down of those who do not have the same lofty morals as you.

But I am willing to give all pepole some benefit of the doubt. If you are truely interested in learning some facts about fighter pilots, nose art, history, and such matters then take a look at the following link. It will (should not) offend you and maybe of some interest.

Mr. Tucker...You state that this forum has taken a real down-turn in content lately. You really have a bad case of tunnel vision. I personally don't object to the pin-up girls. However I don't have much trouble avoiding them when I want to. Back to your statement...If you take the time to read all the posts over the last few days, you will find just about anything you could want to know about EAW and many related topics. I submit, contrary to your opinion,that this forum is one of the BEST anywhere to obtain information and assistance pertainting to a flight sim. To say that the forum is somehow degraded because you object personally to the content of some posts is very unfair to the people who have spent many hours of their own time to make this forum a place of learning and fun. There is a "STOP" button on your browser. Use it!

mane_raptor,
Nowhere have I said that it is inappropriate for anyone, man, woman or child, to look at such images. I'm not making moral judgements. What I have said, I've said as plainly as I can; there are appropriate times and places for such things, and this forum is not one of them. I don't expect you to agree with me, but to at least understand my basic point.
