    that is a policy that comes directly from the site owners.
    they want a somewhat "family friendly" environment.
    we DO allow those sorts of NSFW photos in the subscribers gallery.
    as well as allowing NSFW pictures, the subscribers section is also less moderated for speech, so you can pretty much say whatever you want. (with the exception to very extreme ends, and threats, obviously)
    Its worth checking out.

    Well said!!! I couldn't agree more. To be honest, when I read the recent posts about no gun pictures, I felt like I would have to hide part of my life, which I am not willing to do, or risk being 2nd class. I know I haven't been here too long or contributed that much yet so my leaving wouldn't really matter much to the forum, but I started looking for other photo forums yesterday because of this. I'm glad to see the mods are easing up on this.

    I agree with not banning HDR photos. They should just be banished to that little back room behind the NSFW section, where some of the members wanted to put the gun photos.;)

    Just before we get too carried away folks, let me reiterate that the decision to [temporarily] ban the posting of fire arms images had NOTHING to do with liking, disliking, or even caring about guns as an entity, it was simply because several gun threads had deteriorated into 'guns good / guns bad' debates. Had that happened with nudes, you can bet our actions would have been the same.

    Maybe ban rabbits with guns?

    Or cats with hideously bad breath that lick your face while you're sleeping.

    I think we can ALL get behind that one.

    So temporarily suspend the accounts of those engaging in the debates. The images are not the problem, the people that don't respect others are the problem.

    As for the so called ban on gun photos. I've actually seen more gun photos posted on the forums since the ban then I ever did before it.

    If rabbits are going to be banned does that include rabbit profile photos?

    So according to the site owners NSFW photos don't belong to a family friendly environment but images of guns do. Again, interesting.

    Okay, I think we're done here. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, the policy is what the policy is.
