That is the signature image of Dilbertschalter on FESS.

Now, I don't like Dilbert; I think he's a tremendous twat. But I see nothing wrong with this image.

That doesn't stop one of my primary members!! I'm on a FESS day off? NO! He's going to rail against this, saying that it could possibly violate CHILD PORN statutes, and general obscenity laws, and that we should get rid of it.

I think in this case, he's daft, but I'll leave this open to interpretation.

... What does everyone think? CP? "Basically" porn? Or just a risque image that should be allowed by a site that requires all of it's users to at least be 13?

I was actually gonna bring this up to you in AIM when you got a chance, but seeing as you're here...

Blacken brought this to me, too, and I'll note ONE thing he's right on: to qualify as CP, it needn't show actual nudity, it just needs to be sexually suggestive/exploitative.

I was going to note here that she didn't look underage to me: if anything, she looks like one of those adults trying to PRETEND they're much younger. However, Laylea's post rendered that needless.

As for the issue of worksafe-ness? I'm the same as you, I've got loose standards.

Good point -- I got that vibe from it too. Just didn't want to say anything because I'm pretty much the worst ever at guessing ages.

The thing is, a LOT of Japanese pornography caters to that particular demographic; you don't see a lot of women that look older - or even their age, because Japanese women are valued for their youth.

So does that mean we should denounce Japan as a country full of child fucking deviants? Shit, we should just bomb them if that's the case, eh?

I'm not going to get into policing anything that COULD be construed as bad to a few people. I believe in human decency, so when people attack someone like they initially attacked Sakura before he/she was banned, I go after that, but if someone's got a risque picture that could possibly be construed as whatever, I don't want to hear what the fucking law is, because I'm not going to go that far in censoring my members.
