    And what makes you think that? Personally, I think you're being kind of... well. Your reaction is coming off as homophobic. No offense, but unless you can come up with a better reason than "they're close to each other and the same sex!", this seems more an issue with your personal views than the ad itself.
    Embracing with clothes on in a nonsexual manner is a perfectly normal and innocent scene.

    Firstly, please don't insult me.

    Secondly, you may note that I described what was offensive in gender neutral terms when asked for clarification and only described the Ad itself in the required description of my first post. You are reading intent into what I said that isn't there.

    Lastly, I would have the same problem if it were a guy grinning or blushing while holding a female and both were clothed. Kissing is a public display of affection, but this Ad looks very much like either at or one step after the point where the forum rules require the roleplaying section to "draw the curtains and fade to black". It's suggestive content.

    To quote United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart: I'll know it when I see it.

    I am not attempting to read any hidden intent. There is NO offensive nature to the ad. The pose and ones similar has appeared in countless media in a non-sexual context without controversy, and even by outdated standards the girls are very well covered up.
    I was not insulting you. Simply stating how your reaction was coming off. Using "gender neutral" terms when explaining your reasoning also does not change anything. My point stands that you seem to be vastly over reacting to this ad and situation.

    I don't remember where, but I recall the Giant saying that kids visit these forums and they try to keep them kid friendly. There are some areas where it's a bit less so, but if they go looking let the user beware. However, if a kid comes on these forums to discuss computer game strategies and they see the Ad at the top of the screen, they didn't go looking for it.

This is to both a) abide by the forum rules and b) to keep things relatively family friendly.

    Mods have had to remind people in the past to pull the curtain early and not often, and this is possibly the issue that has caused the most mod interventions in this subforum. Remember, there are other roleplaying forums on the internet that are rated R (or X ), but this is not one of them. Keep it clean, and remember we don't need to know where everyone's hands and lips are at all times.

    Safe: "Romeo pulls Juliet into a kiss and the curtain falls."
    Potentially Problematic: "Romeo kisses Juliet passionately, his hands reaching under her bodice and..." (foreplay goes on for numerous posts before the curtain falls)

    Ultimately, whether or not this is innocent enough to allow on top of the forums will be a decision for the Giant to make. I have posted about it to bring attention to it because I'm not convinced that it is, but if he says that it is, then it is.

    It does seem best to leave this until Rich can make a decision, aye.
    In my personal opinion, I've seen far less "kid friendly" ads in more "kid friendly" places, to say nothing of television ads, billboards, and all-ages movies with more sexual scenes than just two people being near each other.

    Although by the sound of things we may have gone even more harmless than that.
