I am not asking you anything, this was never about you, why would you jump in the middle of my reply about someone else's comment and flagging? Odd really. Nor was I speaking of DA's rules. I don't wish to argue or have anything to do with you, I am truly bored by this. There must be better things to write about.
To Popini, your piece really is wonderful and I apologize for my part in this inane conversation, it's rude please forgive me.
I never said I was offended. I was agreeing with a person who thought artists on DA should respect DA's rules. You are asking me to choose a different venue because I think the members of a group should follow the group's rules? If you think that's something to apologize for, perhaps you should be arguing with DA, not me.
Incidentally, if the nudity is obvious in the thumbnail, clicking vs. not clicking is moot, now isn't it?
My point was that asking for a flag that indicates an aspect of the content is not censorship. You can still post nudity and worse. It doesn't even have to go through an approval process, so you can break all the rules if you want to be that sort of person. How is it censorship when even the CVs don't enforce those rules? Calling a flag censorship is like calling movie ratings (PG-13, etc.) censorship. Is it also censorship for people to ask you to wear clothes? Is it censorship to categorize books by genre in a bookstore?
Call me crazy, but I believe if you like a group and call yourself a member of it, you should respect its rules and its members. Why would you join a group if you disagree with it policies?
Yes, they do sensor and yes it is mandatory and I am asking a hypothetical here (FYI). It is more a statement of these people who complain and turn others in because they are petty and have nothing better to do. Men have breasts with nipples and art with that showing isn't tagged. You have to look REALLY hard at this pic to find the nipple and those who are looking to complain will indeed search. A child wouldn't notice it. How about the respect of not complaining and turning people in? Hmmm??? Do museums have signs over the paintings and sculptures?? What is so offensive about the human body anyway? We don't sensor animal depictions or cloth them. Realllyyy??? If you are offended by the picture choose another venue, site or simply don't click on the thumbnail!!!
