Anybody else annoyed by the underwear ads? I am not amused. Aside from the political rants on the off topic board I was operating under the assumption that the site was “family friendly”. Boy am I upset.

I don’t see how underwear ads are more offensive than posts about a murdered prostitute…

I believe the ads you see on your computer screen are relevant to your browsers search history.

For instance, all I’m getting with AdBlock disabled on Lumberjocks is ads for Home Insurance websites, which I have recently been looking at online – there’s not a sniff of panties anywhere.

LokisTyro said ”I don’t see how underwear ads are more offensive than posts about a murdered prostitute”

I wouldn’t normally do the ‘he said this’ thing, though I know some people love it, but I think on this occasion I should because LT demonstrates what is wrong with Lumberjocks.
Firstly, he clearly didn’t read the thread, or if he did, failed to grasp the meaning of it. The ‘murdered prostitute’ thread to which LT is referring was actually about an archaic Texas law that allowed a man to walk free after shooting a prostitute. The shooting occurred after a dispute about non delivery of services, i.e. he paid for sex and she didn’t put out, and the shooter’s attorneys managed to turn this from a murder case to recovery of stolen property, i.e., the cash, which the jury bought into.
So secondly, LT has taken offence at not only something that he fails to comprehend, but at something that in itself is not offensive. Stupid yes, but offensive no.

Renners is right. Ads are geared to the user. Don’t want ads showing guys in underwear? Stop visiting blue websites.

Problem solved!

New LJers? Losers?

@ renners…..what is a “winklepickers”?

Should I say “don’t rollerskate in a buffalo herd weaing winklepickers” or should it be “Winklepickers don’t rollerskate in a buffalo herd” just wondering.

Pointy shoes Howie, in my experience, winklepickers are worn exclusively by those who reek of aftershave, and work in sales. Winklepicker wearers have the confidence to sell you anything and promise you the world but have nothing to back it up. They are only interested in commission. Hence my deep mistrust.
At certain times of the year, I am plagued by door to door salesmen telling me how much I can save by switching electricity provider, broadband, satellite, gas, etc. I always look at their shoes and refuse to engage anyone in conversation who wears the aforementioned footwear. I know only lies will come out of their mouths.

I knew fully what the article was about. It’s very obvious, even for “losers”. Ouch. I’m hurt. My point was that it has no place in a “family friendly” site about woodworking, even being in the off-topic forum. There are plenty of places to discuss political and social matters.

I’d find it offensive if my kid came to this site looking for a way to glue up a project and then started talking to me about how wrong it was of this guy to kill someone, and then asked me what a prostitute was.

LT, I think you hit it on the metaphorical head…if we didn’t have sex ingrained in us we wouldn’t have any problems,and thusly no posts, concerning popes, prostitutes, and panties. Did you happen to notice my use of the Oxford comma? That’s another whole fun subject in itself that would be more than appropriate for off topic talk and is easily explained to junior.

Sex is easily humanity’s most pressing problem and if I had my way would be outlawed except once a month. After all, we do need to maintain the human population. BTW, the once monthly coupling would only be allowed in the missionary/christian style and over exuberance would be outlawed. Any spilling of seed in areas and locations that does not directly relate to survival of the species is forbidden. With the sex problem behind us we could then kill and maim to our heart’s content. I’m not quite sure how to deal with those among us that get sexually aroused during the act of murder, killing and/or infliction of mayhem on our fellow man.
