Yeah, theoretically, The Mgt could get sued if we leave it up.
But I left a link so people can see the porn if they want.


You can get sued for having porn on a message board?

[insert "what" image macro that I'm not allowed to post]

[also insert something about the irony of Discordians attempting to obide by legalities]

[also insert obligatory disclaimer that I don't think we should post excess amounts of porn in order to be considerate towards people at work and/or with kids so I don't look like a jerk]

I have an idea--

If somebody would write it; I'll draw a Discordian Tract. How's that sound?


You mean pro-Discordian, or tongue-in-cheekly anti-Discordian, ala Jack Chick's posts? Either way, I'll do it

iirc, the new anti-porn crusade from the white house targets any porn
not just "excessive" porn

they are saying you must have a signed release on file from the "model"
saying you have permission to use her picture
even if the picture is hosted on another site and you just link to the image

some websites have shut down rather than test this
(there are links in a thread somewhere)
this website is not wealthy enough to become the test case
let larry flynn do that

however
it has been policy for a long time
not to post things which are not work safe or kid safe

post a link to the image. okay
post the image, no

okay?

I used the word 'theoritically" cause I'm not 100% sure you can be sued for it. But The Mgt has asked us to take down any porn pics. She doesn't ask for a lot in exchange for giving us this place, so I figured "What the hell? I might as well get off my lazy ass and push a button or two for once."

I'm not crazy about censorship, so the link is still there and people can go look as often as their hearts desire.

Edit: Oops, the bunny's post just made this one redundant.

you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

Oooh, freelance artist.  Lemme actually read some Chick Tracts once I'm not at work and I'll see if I can copy his style.

Also, wrt the porn thing, screw the legal stuff, I wanna be able to browse this place at work.

unfortunately, some of us are required to worry about the "legal stuff", as some of us are legally responsible for the content of this website.

(not that i ever visit such forums, of course, i read them for the articles)

Most recent article I can find.

However, banning hotlinking/porn images in general is probably the best way to go.  People at work etc  At the very least, a fair NSFW warning for those people should be in place.

oh of course, i wasn't arguing for posting NSFW images on this board, i just wondered if it's really illegal for forums to host links to porn images, with 4chan being hosted in the US and all.

but according to that news site the law got retracted in 1998
