    .... and that's your fault too Sam!!! All this time I've wasted trying to get banned just so I can some freaken work done!!!


    By the way ... I wasn't so much offended by Lee's self portrait engraving as I was scared. In the same token I was also very happy to see how well the "Low-T" therapy has been working for him.

    KFrei .... I'm not making light of your question, only the blame game that cracks me up. Someone who is true to himself and his convictions and not afraid to speak up is top notch. The world is small and getting smaller. Culture clash is gonna happen and it's all water under the bridge until meeting the person behind the keyboard face to face. Be yourself and never let anyone thousands of miles away suggest there's anything wrong with that.

    I would maintain that you have no business viewing this forum at work, unless you are in the engraving business. When you are at work your time belongs to your employer, and if you are not working for him you are stealing from him, same as if you were taking home his goods. my $.02.

    I agree. Are there times when a company computer might be used during a break to check email or the forum or perhaps a computer taken home to do some work and then during leisure time checking email or this forum? I don't know company policy and surely they differ depending on company, but this seems to be a possibility.

    Chris, you make me laugh brother and thank you for the comments on bein true to one's convictions. As for being scared.....c'mon man up but you are probably right.

    If I have offended anyone I apologize. It certainly was not and is not my intent. I merely wanted to point out that a number of legitimate reasons exist to provide beforehand information. I view it as a matter of courtesy to those who need or desire. Artists are particularly sensitive to the issue of censorship. In my mind censorship has always been about prohibiting and disallowing. Nothing is being asked to be prohibited.

    Sam and his moderators have done a remarkable job of managing this forum. It does not appear to me to be easy or at times pleasant. I merely believe it is a reasonable and valid request on K Frei's part and it is likely he has provided a voice for others.

    Thank you Sam giving me a new welcome.

    Quoting Christopher Malouf about “Culture clash” that is gone happen.

    In my world, the old one, nude is all around. When the temperature permits, at the see side woman go topless. We have multi billboards showing “t1ts”. You cannot open a magazine or newspaper without nude. We have TV commercials starting when I wake up in the morning on “Tahiti Shower Cream” woman and men underwear, we have paintings in church showing woman’s breasts, all our animals are nude and we even have very nude chickens in the supermarket. And now that spring is in the ear, we see lots of birds, rabbits, horses, cows, pigs, and all other living creatures, doing what is the meaning of live, “multiplying”, and that is just part of our live and no one has any problem with that.

    About the “Culture clash”, my wish is that my culture would have a bigger impact than what comes from the other side of the big water. The Free World where everything is possible, keep it for yourself and don’t sent it this way.

    If on some parts of the world; nude is a problem but guns are not, and the other parts of the world have more problems with guns than nude, then do I have to ask Sam to make a button “beware this tread shows guns” ?

    As on this side of our planet, one is more suspicious having photos showing guns than having nude photos.
    Most of us on this side of the planet know the difference about nude and porn.

    Sure feel free to react on my post, but first think about what you like most, guns = killing, nude is love. Or is the 70 ties spirit forgotten and banned?

    Kisses and love from arnaud

    I'm not convinced about the work place thing. Certainly when it comes to objectionable material there are rules in the work place about that in most countries. But then again there are rules about surfing the internet in most places of work as well. Passing on objectionable material is also a no go area and I'm amazed at how many people still do it.

    I think there is a big difference between looking at a Playboy web site and the Engraving Forum. If we start adding "nudity" content icons then should art sites that contain photos of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel murals also warn of nudity?

    It's a fine path we tread when it comes to this sort of thing. Art transcending into objectionable and then leading onto illegal. So far I don't think the forum has degenerated into any of that. We are an engraving forum that we all recognize as being art or craft and I think it's important we don't limit or discriminate the work that we do and show on the forum.

    Besides, I think it would become blindingly obvious to all of us when something was out of line. Common sense has to play a part in all this.

    Cheers
    Andrew

    P.S. Lee.......no offence taken my friend. We all have differeing views about things thank goodness. I suspect that this debate will still be going on long after we are all gone from this world

    I don't think so Dave,

    Ok, guns donít equal freedom, anymore than a noose equals justice.

    Ok guys. No pro- or anti-gun debates.
