i know there was a thread for this already and the subject was even locked out but could someone at PR please warn or block the members on here with the sexually suggestive sigs? one particular sig caught my eye while MY 14 YEAR OLD SON WAS BROWSING THIS FORUM UNDER MY NAME! the sig is a womans bare ass and looks like an ad for a local adult video store c'mon is this not an all ages forum? now im a 36 year old heterosexual man this kind of stuff would normally not bother me but i dont think an all ages sports talk forum should be the place for this type of sig or advertising and no offense to the member who has this sig but he should know better by now especially after a thread was started about this by the admins.
                                                                                                                                                         this smut sig has caused me not to renew my PI subscription and if something isnt put into effect with this soon i will be totally deleting my membership to this forum which prolly wont amount to a hill of beans but i have friends on here and they will come with me and they all have subscriptions. we can always find another information forum that is bucs related where this kind of display will not be tolerated. thank you very much and i hope a PR admin sees this and considers doing something about it because obviously the thread started before has not worked and has just seemingly provoked certain members to have even more raunchy sigs than before!

I may be speaking out of place here, but...  IF I'm reading the OP's OP correctly, I believe he's referencing my use of one of the "costumes" images from one of your advertisers.

If the image in question is this:



Then I see no reason why any PR reader would take offense to who PR chooses to allow to advertise, and therefore, what is only 3 quick clicks away.  Right?

But please, by all means, let me know if I'm not allowed to use images one of your advertisers IS allowed to.

As you can see in my current sig...  Only trying help get the word out there for TTS...   ;)

FTW. I have seen your opinions on censorship and what not...and I get that you are trying to make some sort of a statement with the latest sig....hell, I wish that there werent issues with my former sig cause I would love to have that back...

...but you are about to force PRs hand into removing sigs from the message boards altogether.

I will kindly ask....Would you please "self police" before this happens?

Just ban sigs.

And Bucsfan, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you don't have kids.  A father being concerned at what his child looks at has nothing to do with being "pc" and is a sign of good parenting.  Take notes.

Your son is 14, he is not a little kid anymore. I'm sure he has seen much worse.

Hes 14 years OLD for christ sakes....hes in high school or about to be....hes going to see girls dressing just like that or worse very soon. Going to stomp into school and start demanding girls wear less slutty clothing too?

I mean for gods sake...quitting your subscription over someones signature? how atomically wedged does your underwear have to be in order to do that?

Seeing a girl's ass is the least of a teenage kids worries.

this will be my last post. i had no idea that PR is sponsored or supported by todd adult video. this is nothing personal against PR or any of its members and im not trying to be "pc". what i am tryin to do is teach my 14 year old son, who is at an age where he will begin to interact with the opposite gender in school and social settings, and i am trying to teach him to respect women and girls his age and its kind of hard to do that when he goes on a 'all ages' sports talk forum and is subjected to pics of half naked women and adult video store advertisements. This has not been a big issue either until the last thread related to this subject was posted by a PR admin and still nothing has been done. my son knows better and this probably wont degrade his view of respect towards women but it just may spark something small in his brain that eventually could be his very way of thinking with views of women and sex, and i would rather be the one to sit down and maturely explain these things to him, rather than have an ALL AGES SPORTS FORUM expose him to pics his eyes and mind are not mature enough to differentiate. it doesnt matter though im totally deleting my membership, i refuse to subscribe to pewter insider again, and i will be having talks with my other associates who frequent this forum and subscribe, who also have children my son's age and share my views on the situation. my hope is that PR sees this and does something about it. enjoy your forum and your porn sigs

And newsflash for you...sage of wisdom....

AdBlock...its your friend.

How about you take the initiative to fix the problem yourself before you go trying to complain and try to boycott a business because it isn't "appropriate" for you.

This is PR's fault? there are much worse things your son could see online.. use your parental controls and stop blaming others for your short comings.

PR advertises as a family site - the sponsor is inconsistent with a family site.

There are lots worse things to see on line.  I don't believe that is the point.

Burgbucs just did use his parental controls, to avoid what he feels are inappropriate photos from showing up on his screen.  And he went a step farther in explaining to the owners of this site why he is choosing not to be a customer.  Being critical of a father who is acting to protect his kids seems a bit over the top, even if one doesn't agree with him.

HAHA some of you guys are harsh on this guy. All he is asking is that you dont put images out there that is going to make his 14 year old son contemplate wether or not he is going to bust out the lube and napkin when mom and dad are gone. I would say that these types of images that people use as their sigs should spark healthy discussion between you and your son about these issues. He is going to see worse, and he is going to have these thoughts. Yes I understand that this forum is supposed to be for all ages, but clearly your son will be exposed to other things on here besides pictures that is also not PG-13, so might as well come up with a system now. I mean if your son is browsing the internet himself without you there, you think these forums are the only places he is going to see a woman's bare ass?

However, as much as I dont really understand the purpose of these images of women and their relationship to Buc football, I do understand freedom of speech and expression, even if you do come off as a lonely perverse individual. I mean this is America right? ;)

In addition I would be more worried about your son looking at SCORES advertisement on the pewterreport site and seeing those delicious hot wings which would make him want to click the add and then BANG he is hit with a video with sexy women on poles shaking their tail feathers. HAHAH PewterReport is only trying to teach us a lesson, "Do as I say, not as I do"
