    Default Come to the defense of your questionable thread...

    During the election, non rocked. Lots of stuff I disagreed with, but there were some real discussions.

    The Star Wars and funny pic thread...totally hilarious.
    The gay tattoo...I didn't want to see it, but it's so outrageous I can see the value. Talk about water cooler discussions!
    TV and movies...great
    Sometimes those sad threads where we need to vent about the evils of humans we share this planet with...
    Books, politics, entertainment...cool. I see the point.

    However, this room is becoming increasingly sexualized and I'd like some of you to defend these threads.

    We ARE an all-ages board. Do you really think we need to expose minors to the masturbation habits of adults?

    The porn star thread...we have the bikini chick thread which has rules. Now there has to be a thread about a porn star? Why? And why do we need, on an ALL AGES BOARD, to promote porn?

    Now this brilliance or perversion thread about a completely sick idea for a "reality show?"

    Why?

    If some of you can provide a rationale for these threads, please do that. Most stuff that gets posted here is either funny or interesting and I'm not promoting the idea of censorship. However, is it too much to ask that we think a little harder before we create a thread?

    Absolutely second that. I skip kinda threads anyway, but I would prefer for such topics not to emerge at all.

    I agree for the most part but I usually skip those threads and let them die.

    The flip side though is that there may be some issues that are worth a discussion. I've been debating posting a thread about upper grade school and junior highschool girls being profficient in oral sex. It's not supposed to be a funny thread, in fact I'm disturbed by this new developement. However I don't know if this is board material so I don't post.

    I agree. Some people can go overboard, however, Let's just all be mature and considerate of other fellow VH fans. We're all sibblings here! I've done my best in the last month or so, to just stick to the VH threads and just kick back and relax. I've checked out some of the non-VH threads if they are of interest to me, such as the NFL Offseason 2005 thread, and others.

    in case anyone forgets, this site is about a rock n roll band, one called Van Halen, with album titles of "0u812", FUCK, etc.
    sex is a huge part of it.
    This may be all ages board, but it aint no 'candy lane' either.

    Not to mention the fact that Dave wore his pants tight enough to verify that he's circumcised.

    I don't want to piss on the guys who have been here for along time, but I have to agree, my little sister runs into this stuff on alot of her Hiary Duff and Avril boards and my parents just freak, now I know there is a huge diff between the two, but some of the topics are abit much, and we only have ourselves to blame.

    Censorship is always brought up by dumbasses who just don't quite get what is being discussed. It's the idea that perhaps we can do a little better as a community, and that maybe we should take some pride and dignity in what we discuss.

    mikel, nice to see you're still an ass...
    Anyone ever tell you that?

    If you want to start 'bettering' the community, try having a rational response instead of an inflammatory one

    im not making a big deal out of it. I just dont think i agree with the premise that its an all-ages board as it relates to content.

    To me, its like the record company suggesting Eddie change some stuff in his songs so its more radio friendly.
    I appreciate the sentiment, but i just disagree

    It's not just about it being an all-ages board. It's about what is and isn't appropriate for public discussion. Some people just don't seem to have a sense of decorum here. We're playing to the lowest common denominator, which is pretty sad.

    who's to say what's appropriate or not to somebody else?

    my ONLY point is that VH isnt some kid-friendly pop band, not to me anyway, and as an extension, neither is the typical VH fan.
    Sure, we are moral, decent people, but we prefer an edge to life.

    If you want to move towards 'PC', that's anyone's perogative.
    I prefer to leave the internet the last free bastion of expression and if i see something i dont like, i let it die a lonesome death rather than give it more attention than it deserves.
