Roadfly has one and then we post irrelevant crap on it...:)...Roadflys lounge is definitely NWS!..and then posts such as mine can go there.

We already have an off-topic section for unrelated content, but I don't think Randy wants any NWS content being posted. He'll correct me if I'm wrong...

Exactly. Just think of me as an old prude and it will all be clear. :) My intent is that this is a work safe forum and I do not want it cluttered with NWS content, or the baggage that goes with that. We do have off topic and I welcome humor, the strange, any kind of thing we want... as long as it's not too sexual, displaying nudity, plastered with babe pics, gross or showing gruesome content. My other personal bias... I HATE gruesome content for the sake that it is gruesome and will not tolerate links to sites that exist for that reason.

It is not like it isn't hard to find that content on the internet. I don't see any reason it needs to be here.


I like pr0n as much as the next guy :) but do not want EliseTalk associated with it (or even any NWS stuff) and I want to be sensitive to the people that are not comfortable with it. If Reverend Smith buys an Elise to drive to sermons... more power to him. I hope he participates here. Of course, there is a line.. we can't go too far. Sometimes no matter what you do, some people will be offended. As to where to draw that thin line? I will make the call, and I have been known to ask the opinions of other moderators also to make sure I am not alone in how I feel.

Lastly, in regards to the argument that a separate forum, people don't have to click, etc.... I still don't want it. The purpose of EliseTalk is a community of enthusiasts. Anything that might stop someone from participating is a problem to me. I also don't want issues with our forum sponsors.

As we grow (and we will), certain things should happen. One, is that we need to people to get better at posting in the right forum. :) Moving to feedback forum

Dumb question of the day:

What is "NWS"?

Ed
Not dumb at all. It is commonly used on certain forums to indicate that the content you might be about to click on, it Not Work Safe. You will also see NSFW (Not Safe for Work). Or it could be labeled MATURE or ADULT... or "Here there be Jubblies"

It is stuff you might be embarassed to see on your monitor with your boss walking by.

It is stuff that if found in your cache or by the IT crew, could get you in trouble.

It is stuff that you might have some explaining to do should little Johnny or Suzie walk by at home.... or even the wife/husband.

Randy, stick to your guns, keep this forum Elise/car focused, no garbage. There are plenty of forums you can find junk on this is a terrific forum with a great focus.

i agree! It would seem that the size of your guns has to be proportional to the number of posters/members. What I mean is that it may get a little more difficult to control stuff if one person starts something and produces a snowball effect. One example, but didn't go far, were the semi-nude avatars. If you want to see a nude avatar that Randy would totally disagree with, check out Tony Yoshi's avatar on

http://elise.pinkcore.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=89&PN=1

Nevermind! As i was checking the link, he had changed his avatar. It used to be an animated gif of a well-endowed topless blonde gal shaking what her mama gave her. Only bad thing was that it was in black & white.

I have seen that (wonderful) avatar elsewhere. We do have to draw a line, and like any line about anything, not everyone will like it. Some will think we don't go far enough. Some will think anything that smacks of censorship is too much.

As far as the work and problem of doing it increasing? No worries. That is what the rest of you are for. I ain't doing this alone. :)

Recognize that most of you are how the site veterans. And you set the tone of how it works. New people are signing on each day and might need to be reminded that this is EliseTalk, not civicsi or somethingawful or whatever.

Randy-great job, and I like where the line is. Also, thanks for allowing the breasts to do the wave in the thread Arrrrrrrrrrrrgghhhhhh. That was funny as hell, but also probably at the limit of what we should be able to see.

Yup. Anything more and I would nip it in the bud.

OMG, you didnt think I wanted porn on here did ya?..:no: :no: . I was only commenting on what happens on Roadfly sometimes. I too do not want porn on here. I was only asking for a "lounge" section for offtopic posts(ie-the damn Nike shoe request) but I didnt even notice that we had a "other" section, which serves the same function. I agree with everyone else, I dont want porn on here either cause that is a waste of time, unless Im in the mood for it of course...:D :D . Geez, Im emabarrssed I came across like that. Wasnt intentional.

All I can say is "Please No" or "God NO!". I came from the big BMW forum Bimmerforums.com. Which I call the A$$hole forum. I love Elisetalk. It is a very classy, friendly and actually has great info. I think adding a lounge section is fuel for the fire. IMO.

looks like we're all in agreement, Randy just keep doing what you're doing. This place is great!

(and as you point out, it's not like NWS stuff is easy enough to find, hell, that's what the internet was invented for. Useful contrent is just a bonus side effect)
