Eh, even when that other site came out...I look at it, and just clicked away. It was not what I liked, which was simple, stupid, forums. Where I could easily tell who was who, and the threads weren't confusing.
I am a simple old person. 18+ sites are too crazy. I want sites made for little kids so I can understand how to use them. rofl
There's one thing I would really want to know about all those Tentacl ads: are they really showing to people which are subscribed to the site while clearing stating they are under 18? If yes, then there's clearly a problem with those ads. If not, and only people 18+ are seeing them... I'm not sure we can really consider that as an argument saying a PG-13 site are breaking their rules. That said, I would agree with them adding a "Mature Content" filter for those over 18+ if they start to have too much of such content -- this way, if someone wanted to opt out of it, they could. It's something which is done on other websites, so why not here too?
On topic. I do think it's inappropriate. It's an 18+ site. I did hear that they put NSFW filtering on the front page so some kid doesn't randomly click to spinning dickcopter. But still. 2003 and 2004 there was a Linklist that also contained an 18+ section to hentai websites and that was removed because it was thought too inappropriate for the site. Same with the Personals because it was full of people being raunchy. Now this. How wonderful.
Agreed. Someone told me once that there was a girl who posted a link to a piece of art in her photobucket, and then she got banned because in that same file of her photobucket there was some NSFW/hentai art. So because she posted a link to a page you had to click about four pages further to get to porn her account got banned. If this is true the Tentacl advertising is hypocritical as hell.
And even if that didn't happen, I still think the Tentacl advertising is inappropriate. I may be biased because when I first visited the site there was no NSFW filtering and the front page had the infamous dickopter, and of course I was on a train full of people when that thing spun by on my big laptop screen. Silly me for thinking that the site would be safe if I hadn't even signed up and verified that I was 18+ yet. To me, the whole site resembles anything but actual adults and is just infested with hormonal teens looking to cyber and exchange n***s. I don't see any real draw but the porn.
