    I think he's saying you shouldn't say that on this board.

    Outside this board, say what you want.
    Yes, I'm telling him that if he does it again he's history.
    Thanks for the warning, Mr Hill!
    I won't do it again.
    Sorry!!

    Be easier, of course, if she'd run, say, a 12.99 soon....so we can focus more on her running than on her looks.
    But happy you gave me a warning....instead of throwing me in jail!!

        Hmmmmm. How interesting. If I got my maths right, according to the the Theorem of Aaronk it takes only 0.33 seconds to go from sexy to athletic.

        I was also wondering how Aaronk was able to become a self proclaimed expert on the chattering that goes on in the women's locker room.

            GH, I learned since I retired that white collar workers have a pencil jammed up their khyber pass.

            There is a completely different world out there where people make jokes at other people's expense, and others aren't offended.

            Trying to get people to react the 'way they should' is counter productive. Clearly there is some poor taste stuff, but unfortunately the 'political correct intelligensia' have drawn too dark a line.

            I look forward to the day when people can enjoy everyone's company without being overly concerned about inadvertent imaginary offense.

              Are you listening with tiny laptop speakers? On my large desktop speakers, her voice is crystal clear and isn't drowned out by the music, but on my laptop the music is much louder relative to her voice.

                The key words are 'out there'. This, however, in 'in here', and higher standards of civil conduct apply. I appreciate that, even when sometimes I am the recipient of the consequences of 'improper behavior'. It's actually refreshing to come to an internet site that is being 'over'-policed. The gutter conduct I see in many places is depressing.

                  How do you know they're not offended? The fact that someone doesn't speak up does not mean he/she's not offneded.

                  People who are considerate of the sensitivities and feelings of others try to be careful about saying things that might offend. The attitude of not "being overly concerned about inadvertent imaginary offense" almost precludes being habitually careful to consider the sensitivities and feelings of others.

                    Perhaps I should say then, that I look forward to the day when 'Mind The Gap' is not a philosophy.
                    I will guess than the majority of outraged is disportionate to the impact they have had on society.

                    Accomodation has been made to the extent that mediocrity is the new norm.

                      Way too sanctimonious, again. :?

                      She's 19! Probably the average age of a model for SI, a Paris Runway or even Victoria's Secret and we don't have people worrying about if they're "old enough". She's a woman! Legal to consent in nearly any jurisdiction, legal to be stripper. And, if aaronk want's to call her sexy than he should be able to, but he might have to do it on the Things not T&F as not to run afoul of the meandering "lines" of this board.

                      This may be your reality, but you also could have made it up to justify your point. Since I don't know you, I can only believe it's the latter because that is certainly NOT my experience. Some offenses are certainly inadvertent, but that doesn't make them any less offensive; it just means that maybe some education is in order. Education that you call "political correctness" - a fake concept for fake rage.

                        I fail to see how respect for others=mediocrity.

                          I assume you're addressing this to the moderator of the board, Garry Hill, since it was his decision to tell aaronk that if he does it again, he's banned.
                          You seem oblivious to the reality of THIS forum. Your reality is not the only one.

                            Marlow, it's incredibly bad form to purposely misquote someone to seemingly make your pointlessness unpointless. You do it all the time and I wish you would stop. All comments about reality were directed towards mal. Also, that first bit ... if you want to go back and read it ... was addressed to you. I'm sure gh is perfectly capable of determining what is being DIRECTED towards him and what is not. You could learn alot from him.

                              Bottom line is this: it has been board policy from day 1 (and will be at least until the end of the Mayan Calendar :mrgreen: ) that sexist comments are not allowed. Judging women athletes by their pulchritude falls into that category.

                              Note that I said athletes: there is indeed a "double standard" in operation here. If you wanna go over on the Things Not Track forum and note that Jennifer Aniston gives you a terminal hard-on, that's your business. Women whose profession is being in the public eye know/want that kind of analysis to come with the territory.

                              Doing the same for athletes is off the table because they're (by and large) out there to be judged on their athletic skills, and that's how we'll judge them.

                              Thus endeth today's lesson.
