Is this offesive?
« on: February 04, 2006, 05:51:36 PM »
I'm just going to include a link to this picture as you might not want to see it.  My concern is that it is inside a free flash games that to me is aimed at kids.  The game is squirrel squasher (squash?) and it seems to serve no purpose other than exposing kids to soft porn.

The picture is of an animae girl, posing with her underwear showing and pulling on/off her stockings.

Am I just being too easily offender or is this just wrong?

here is a link to the pick if you care to see it.

It's not a bug, it's an undocumented and unexplainable feature.

Just goes to show you what percentage of people who develop kids software, books, and cartoons are actually quite sick ;o. This is nowhere close to appropriate. I can't believe they've gotten by with it. Expose it to the media and they'll die a quick death.

They get away with it because they aren't doing anything wrong, necessarily.  With the exception of adult only content, there aren't laws requiring ratings on websites in the same manner as, say, movies and TV -- and while this is suggestive, it doesn't quite hit the AO mark.  Further, I haven't seen the picture in context of the full flash and website it's on, but  in the original post, rover said

-- 'to me is aimed at kids'  -- which makes me think it seems like a childrens game because of its simplicity and cute rodents, but is perhaps not explicitly aimed at kids.

I'd wager it's just a blacksheep.com ha ha shock value deal, maybe designed to seem like it's for kids while being adult themed (ala peewee herman's playhouse ;).

Yes, and in this post-modern world we have to define "is"...

If it's Japanese in origin, then it's not considered obscene by their standards. The rest of the world is very prudish compared to them. We would consider them a degenerate society if we looked close enough at them.

This is a country where young school girls make pocket money by selling their panties so they can be sold, unwashed, in vending machines to grown men. And this is totally acceptable and encouraged.

What a great, easy way to make a buck . . . I wish I was a little Japanese girl. ( I imagine no one would want to buy any other size panties . . .) ;)

Rover, deal with this stuff like this.
http://www.k9webprotection.com/

I've been using it for 1-2 months now and probably will indefinitely, as long as it's free.
All the other filtering options caused my connection to slow down. I have not noticed K9 affecting bandwidth at all.
Not sure what it's like on dial-up though.
