Trolls, Whiners and Others

After I said the profile picture would be allowed, the person continued to argue that I could not judge the issue since I was a man. I guess the fact that I have a penis somehow affected my view of the issue. I find that an incredibly sexist attitude. My decision stands, penis or not.
The fact is that I am the sole arbiter of what appears on the forum. I believe in free expression, but do limit the content to what is suitable for family viewing. I don't care what political persuasion, religion, philosophy or special interest you have, or if your profile, linked Facebook page, etc. has content I don't agree with ... as long as it is suitable for family viewing and not illegal, it is probably fine. I do reserve the right to limit content at my sole discretion because this is my forum, and I am ultimately responsible for it (US law, the laws of Colorado, and the laws of California do apply to me as a site owner/operator). This forum has been around since 2000 with the same rules, so I must be doing something right.
Because the person said they had already started contacting the other member, I banned them. I simply won't allow my members to be haraunged or pestered by another member. If you can't "be nice", then go away. I will help you on your journey.
If you receive an email protesting your profile, linked Facebook page, etc., refer them to me. Don't be intimidated by the over-sensitive, true-believers or otherwise intolerant folks among us. They are entitled to their opinion, but not to enforcing their views on everyone else.

Frank can you please post the bathing suit picture . . . just asking.
Its probably here somewhere! Although I'm not sure I would be comfortable posting a picture of someone's wife here ... he could be bigger than me and beat me up!

I just took a look at your blog ... I hadn't noticed it before. I love the Cooper Jr. design, and if I had the money or time, I would build a boat like that. Massive commitment, though!

Don't pick on Jessica - She wasn't bad, she was just drawn that way

Besides, if anyone finds anything in the forum incompatible with personal principles, he/she should be the first to consider withdrawing.
