Judge,

You still don't get it.

"there are appropriate times and places for such things"

Go to ANY fighter jock locker room, just about anywhere in the world. Go to any place where men put their lives on the line to protect their country. There you will see such picture as you object to.

Pictures of scantily clad women are as much a part of that arena as the smell of engine hot engine oil, the sounds of engines, and the curses over the radio as the pilot takes a hit. To deny these is to deny a very central part of the fighter jock experience.

I wonder if you have even bothered to take a look at the link I posted prior to this.

And as I side point, why, if you are so interested in EAW have you not once posted a post or started a thread that is "EAW related"? Where are your questions about EAW? Where are your thoughts about improving the game? Where are your ideas for skins (aircraft textures), new terrain, or different aircraft? All I seem to read from you is complaints about "bad" pictures.

I have to agree with Bigshot (reply posted 12-31-1999 09:55 PM. - S! Veteran). We're in the EAW forum, I mean, a forum based on a war flight simulator. That means all we play to kill people, no matter if the game disguises that fact under the cover of "shooting down aircraft". If we simulate to kill virtual people, are we going to get scared of a BABE simulation? Those are just photograps and don't try to kill you over a simulated Europe. Do you really think they are "offensive"? I think it's more offensive for my moral integrity to have a HE-111 in my (simulated) gunsight than a BABE on my browser. Anyway, if I don't want to kill that HE-111, I just don't push the trigger. And if I don't want to see a BABE, I just push "stop" in the browser. As easy as that.

A coke and a diet-coke aren't the same. Killing in a simulator and killing in WW2 aren't the same thing. Watching a BABE and practice (or to see) pornography aren't the same.

mane_raptor,

This is not a locker room. You are not a fighter pilot. Wake up to reality. This is a freely accessible, public forum and you and I and everyone else here are playing games.

You might want to turn this forum into a frat house; I don't want to see it. It'll only end up alienating people and shrinking the community. EAW Online is gone. This is the last forum with significant EAW content, and the signal to noise ratio here is falling through the floor. What then?

Oh, gee willies!!! I guess we'll all have to behave ourselves otherwise we'll be under double secret probation. TOGA, TOGA, TOGA!!!!!!!

If you don't like it, don't look. If you have nothing to contribute, then don't post. Go back to your "wonderful" Jane's WWII Fighters and it's oh so good eye-candy.

As far as a "shrinking community", I have been a member longer than you and have viewed (and participated in it) for a very long time. I see the numbers going up, not down.

I grow tired of your ignorant comments and will close with one that perhaps you can understand.....PHATTTT! (bronx cheer)

Well, that's a fairly definite last word, isn't it? Glad to see you're so open-minded.

I don't think the main problem is that people are offended by the pictures, the problem is that they really don't belong here. This forum is shifting from a EAW-forum to a babe-forum. The (unimportant) babe-threads are actually blocking the (more important) EAW-realted threads. I'm actually having trouble finding the threads where people are asking for help, because someone starts a new babe-thread every 5th minute. And I find myself quoting Chris: It might scare away the newbies. Not because the pictures offend them, but because the massive numbers of posts confuse them. Could we PLEASE stick to EAW and aviation in this forum? If you HAVE to post babe-pics, could you AT LEAST try to keep them in a few threads, instead of starting a new thread EVERYTIME you get a new picture?

Hmmmmm ... interesting topic. I left a squadron for the amount of porn that was accessible to minors. It began to interfere with my REAL world as these minors that wanted to join became exposed to it.

So I did something that was very difficult for me to do ... I decided to leave a group of guys that I had been flying with for almost 4 years. However it was my choice to stay or leave, it is a publicly accessible web site, viewable to the world, and is my choice to view or not to view the porn.

The accessibilty to minors became and issue when 'kids' began hitting the site because they were interested in joining up. How do you explain to a parent that you belong to a group that has this but you dont support it?

My point in all this being that you have a choice to view or not view a post, whether it is related to EAW, 'Pic of the Day', or something else. And to be honest ... you can see a lot more in the Victoria Secret's catalog thats delivered to your front door then I've seen posted here. The S.I. swimsuit issue is much more revealing than any photo i've seen posted here and you dont have to be of age to purchase it.

If this was all that was posted on my previous units site, I never would have left. So far I have yet to see any porn posted. If you want to view the Babes ... look at them ... if not dont. Nothing here you cant see on the beach or on prime time TV.
