I respect your opinion I have read it and everyone elses. You cannot force it on others. If you are a religious man and its your belief then so be it. If the man next to you doesnt believe and you make an attempt to show him the light and he says no thankyou and you keep pushing now whos in the wrong. Let it go there are bigger things in life to worry about. If I had a 6-8 year old daughter come in and ask why is the lady doing that in the picture then I would calmly tell her what shes doing and explain also that some people do things that arent right and that its part of life. My dad did for me and my sister growing up. We're not deviant. Also in europe where sex is far more in the mainstream meadia they have less sexual crimes in whole then our uptight country. I am proud to be American but you need to relax a little. When you freak out and say negative things about how bad it is then you create another issue. Let things be and move on your burning daylight and its valuble for track time.

I'm not saying I'll try walk the earth with blinders. Yes, I can turn off the avatars. Yes, I can ignore anyone I wish. I don't have to go to strip clubs, and I don't have to watch TV. HOWEVER, when I come to a forum to participate in discussion about RC Cars, I DON'T EXPECT to see suggestive pictures. If I go to a forum to discuss sexuality, I EXPECT to see that type of thing. If I go to Hooter's, I expect that. If I go to the library, I don't expect the librarian will be dressed like someone at Hooter's.

Lack of morals and lack of real good-old-fashioned family VALUES is the cause of degredation of society in the world. (Especially it seems recently here in the US.)

So does my wife... I "DON'T" know about you guys, but she thinks my "AVATAR" looks "PRETTY" scary. Don't you? If you're trying to be offensive, please try to be intelligent about it.

I myself like looking at beatiful women but do not want to see avatars like Marcel's.His avatar has nothing to do with a beatiful woman because her face is not shown.For all we know it could be a man with girlie breast.Everybody has different opinions on pornogrophy even though this can be classified as soft porn.My kids are frequently around me when I am on here and so is my wife.Either of whom I wish not to see this.If these kinds of avatars were in the forums i frequent then i would cease to visit those forums.This is not a porn site and would prefer not to see them.Sex and Beatiful women are the biggest draw for advertising negative and positive.
I for one am not offended by the avatars.I am offended by the disrespect people have for one's opinions and religios beliefs.

I'd be spending much more time at the library....

Womens breast and the degradation of our society are worls apart, even the porn industry has no impact.... We have no family or work ethics left... We have no problems with supporting illegal aliens, women with 5 kids and no idea who the fathers are, welfare instead of work... I'm a retired NYC cop, I"ve seen it all.... The Europeans don't have this hangup we do with nudity and they don't have the crime or divorce rate we have either.... We are supposed to appreciate god's creations and yet we get all bent out of shape when one of them is exposed to be appreciated...

You can't turn off the world, you don't have to go to strip clubs to see half naked women (go to the mall). Draw your blinders tighter Randy, it's only going to get worse.

I thinks its kind of simple, someone objects to your avatar and while you may disagree their objections, but the objections are not unreasonable, why not change it. What’s the big deal.



If my car hits a rail really hard and I say G*d Damn it If after the race someone come up to me and says they don't like someone taking the Lord's name in vain. I may disagree, I may think there making a big deal out of nothing, I may believe there is nothing wrong with what I said, I certainly had the right to say it, but I am not going to argue with them, or tell them to mind their own business, I will simply tell them OK, end of story.

It simply being considerate an having good manners.

Very well said. Now lets take this example and let this thread die since it certainly isnt about on-road electric r/c cars.
