Default a little disappointed

I'm a little disappointed at the pontiac cheerleader image...I have a young daughter and would like it if I did not have to have her leave the room if I want to go to the BC forum.... I know most of you are young guys (and old men) but come on...have some sense of decency for us with young children...and for you who dont have any young girls..if you ever do...you will feel EXACTLY like I do now. Believe me...I have an 18 year old son also, so I know what kinds of things you boys get excited over..maybe it should of been a link....like the beer girls...

Post has been removed.

We've posting guidance in the past, as many of us have younger children that like to read/post/participate with parents.

You MUST put a warning in your topic title folks. Not just for the kids, but alsofor ALL others of our diverse membership population.

We run a pretty clean ship here, and I'm sorry if you feel that way. Would you have an example of what we could do better?

Well for starters...I was quite shocked when I opened that up and saw the bouncing cartoons...Thank god my daughter was not home at the time...at 11...she would of been like"WHAT THE HECK? WHY IS THAT ON THERE?" I know that it is a pretty clean place and I have been VERY VERY happy as of yet...there have been a few things that I have not liked but at least people can put a warning or something... Not sure what you want as an example but if you seen the cartoon, you should of taken care of it.

Every member of this Forum has a responsibility to EVERY other member of this Forum to CLEARLY identify even MILDLY offensive material by clearly stating it in the topic title.

I cannot afford to lose my job for clicking on a topic with any questionable image in it. If you're going to post something like that, you BETTER title it with a warning.

Nevi is right on track with this complaint. It'* not just the younger viewers that are an issue here.

I agree that these kinds of topics should be identified, and agree with what people are saying about there kids, BUT, and I mean in no way to be disrespectful, but for you guys that are complaining about getting in trouble at work, why are you on BC at work anyway? Some people have to work a hard 8-10 hour day, and you're complaining about getting in trouble on a web-page?

I dont know about the rest of the group, but I get to work about an hour early which gives me time to get on and read/post. I also get an hour at lunch, but I could still get in trouble if someone saw something that was offensive and they decided to complain about it
