FanIQ or Half Naked Ladies IQ?

2/6/09 in   |   hskrdave   |   10559 respect

 I'll be the first to admit:  I like Porn.  Photo's, Video's, even Erotica.  But I have places to go look at that.  FanIQ is not one of them.

This is completely me writing.  Not as a Moderator of the Photo and Video section.  I wasn't asked by anyone to go on a witch hunt, name names, or anything else.  Just my feelings.  I don't listen to or boycott musicians, actors, movies, etc that have views that differ from mine, but I don't listen to them either.  I want my politics at certain channels and sites, I want my entertainment news at others, and I want my sports at FanIQ.  While they may mingle, it is not what I am looking for.

That being said, I am tired of what people are putting up for profile pics or adding to their profile photo space.  In case this is your first time hearing about it, FanIQ has a Code of Conduct found here: http://www.faniq.com/faqs.php#Code+of+Conduct.  In Detail, it goes over what is allowed and not allowed on this site.  FanIQ is a PG-13 site, meaning if you don't see it or hear it in primetime, don't put it on the site.  The number of Sexual Acts, genitalia of both men and women, even pics with R language that have to be deleted on a daily basis are too high.

FanIQ is a place for sports.  We are not a dating site, even though couples can be found that matched here.  We are not a Porn site, or semi-porn site, although the picture section would tell you otherwise.  Yes I know that there are two polls on a daily basis that contribute to this ideology, but they have been approved by upper management, and I'm pretty sure not everyone agrees with that decision.  Even having to edit language in comments has become bothersome, especially when I have to remind the same people over and over.  Innuendo is all over this site, yes I contribute to it.  But I have also scaled back long before I became a moderator, because I didn't want to be known only for my pervy wit.  Since it is a SportsSite, I wanted to be able to contribute intelligently to all parts of the site, and not discuss how many cheeseburgers an anorexic model with dental floss over her butt needs, or how many needles a juice monkey in a banana hammock goes through in day.

I have no authority whatsoever to tell anyone how to live their life or what to do on this site.  I do have a little authority to edit language and delete pics and video that go against the Code of Conduct that was here long before I was.  I ask you, whichever 5 people take this post seriously, to keep a FanIQ a sportsite, with a few pics of attractive people, not a PornSite where you can get the latest lines for sporting contests.  We are here to see how we compare with our sports picks, not our porn pics.

Sincerely,

Hskrdave

But at FanIQ, I'd much rather see a stat of how my teams just  ripped up someone else's!
Or vice-versa unfortunately...

So... Good Job Dave!  and...  HOW BOUT THEM DEVILS!!

You As the #1 Devils Fan, and me as Commish of the Carolina Hurricanes, you know I can not in good conscience give you any accolades (thank you mr. stevens).  But Thank You.

after I came across a homosexual picture and act I was kinda hopin there would be some actions to remove it.  It didn't come from the US so maybe they don't understand the rules/language.  That btw, would not be a first.

What the heck do you mean there is innuendo in here????

2/7/09   |   Toejam   |   22 respect

not much that i can add to an excellent post. I report porn pics that i find posted on here on a regular basis, several times a week. The mods do an excellent job of deleting them right away, I enjoy this site because the discussions are for the most part mature and well informed, but i would also like for my son to be able to come on here and not worry.....

censorship ???

 I don't look at it as censorship, more as rules to follow.  Do you believe the fact that you aren't legally allowed to drive 100 mph is censorship?  Do you think that the "No Shirts, No Shoes, No Service" Policy is censorship?  Like my fellow Q'er said, everyone agreed to certain rules when signing up for the site.  Just because someone doesn't agree with them, doesn't mean they should do whatever they want.  FanIQ is a community with it's own rules, just like any community or website out there.  If someone doesn't believe in the rules, I'm sure there are plenty of places out there where they can find a place to fit in.

I know most of us THINK what you said and totally agree, Dave. Thank you for putting it out there for a friendly reminder to all. As a female, I came here for sports. I have almost quit being a part of this fantastic site because of this very issue. I'm not here to hook up, have you send me naked pictures of yourself... just STOP. Keep this site for what it is meant to be. If you're not a sportsminded person...move on!   Don't ruin it for the rest of us.  Sorry :-)

We've always had censorship.  Its something every user agrees to when they join the site.  We've all agreed to it, so it really shouldn't be much of an issue.

 the honest answer is that it was a part of it, but there are enough other pics that it is a fraction of a fraction of a percentage.  mostly the ones i've had to delete were the cause.
