Freedom of speech and what not.



But there is some merit to self restraint, IMO.




Dead kid pics are a bridge too far, again IMO.




(I know I don't have to click, but when it isn't spelled out in the title.  NSFW or Graphic is not sufficient.)

I for one have no idea what you're referencing.



So, maybe.

Too much. We can have dead kids but we can't have tits and vag? Not explicit shit but playboy level stuff.





This site has fucked up rules if you ask me. Show guys getting roasted alive on a swing set, a dead kid on a beach (which really fucked me up today), and any number of Brazilian robbery films but a female body? Insta-ban or maybe a warning and timeout if you're lucky.

Someone psoted a thread that contained a picture of a dead kid, without a warning.

He fixed the thread.

I agree with the op, kind of

Just put a warning in the title

Drowned refugee/migrant.  Probably two or three.  Has been the feature of at least two threads.




I think you can talk about it without the pic.  It (the pic) doesn't lend moral weight to either side of the issue.




I think, no matter what our positions are, that we can all stipulate that a dead 3 year old is a bad thing.
Link Posted: 9/3/2015 6:58:19 AM EDT
it really does not matter.

there are members here who are more concerned with being able to see and post scantily clad women and will whine how they are unable to see scantily clad women in GD.  apparently to ignorant to know about this internet thing where they can find websites with nothing but scantily clad women.  but it has to be in GD so it can be "fair"


I for one don't want to see pictures of dead children.  I clicked on the link not really paying attention to what it was and wished I had not.

The sad part is, there are a few members here that won't agree with that statement
Link Posted: 9/3/2015 7:00:37 AM EDT
I agree with you 100%



Yes there are places on the Internet to see necked women, I get that.

I don't get why that is not ok here but stuff like you mentioned is.

That pic really messed me up too. Your not the only one.

A warning would be polite, but this is GD.

There's a lot of shit I just won't click.

You do realize that picture is EVERYWHERE today, right?

Just about every media outlet ran it.

Same thing I saw on CNN at work last night.




I cant call this one.

If you can't handle the photo, you can't handle the discussion.  (Not directed at you, Primus, just in general)



People following the situation with the migrants know this is happening.  A photo of one (of hundreds) dead shouldn't affect the discussion.

Can't even get a consensus on pussy being great and that the sky is blue from this group.




I'm just saying if you're going to let dead kids slide as being acceptable, then anything should really be acceptable.

Meh.  It just didn't bother me but I've seen a lot of dead bodies up close and in a lot worse shape so I'm probably desensitized.  My feelz meter barely twitched.

As an aside, once the discussion takes place in front of a dead kid pic as the backdrop, the discussion is over and it is two groups of monkeys flinging feces.







It does not add to the intellectual weight any any proposition in controversy.

It's almost like the media has an agenda or something.




Can't be.




We should totally adopt their playbook.

I have young children and the picture did not bother me.  It was not a violent picture just a little boy laying in the water.  There's much worse out there.

But isn't all this "news" or "documentation" of an event/phenomenon?  I've seen plenty of dead baby pics dealing with the Holocaust, kids burning from napalm, infant shot in a DC drive-by; should these be censored and stricken from memory?  Where do you draw the line?  Context?

I'd be in favor of a change to the CoC that says gore and bikini pics are alright, but MUST be placed behind spoiler tags and be appropriately labeled with an NSFW marker of some sort.

It was very sad.  Gut wrenching.   A reality check.

We talk about SHTF and bug-out plans and the like. I cannot imagine the terror at home that would necessitate such a risky evacuation.

Stricken implies some form of intervention from a rule making authority.




I'm just asking about what the consensus is among posters.  




That was my intent anyway, sorry if that's not clear.
