View Full Version : 'Babe threads'.

What was it about the 'hot or not' thread which meant it could exist when 'babe threads' are not permitted, and what course did the thread take which took it across the line into prohibited territory, causing it to be closed?

By the way, I feel the ban on babe threads could do with a re-think. What is wrong with them? What lofty heights do the admin see the phora occupying that babe threads are so far beneath?

Personally I would like to see a babe thread take place in a 'racially aware' setting like this one. I respectfully request an amnesty for the babe thread.

I think the phora should maintain its focus on race, and therefore a special forum should be erected for race-based babethreads. MP already has the material for jewbabethreads. il ragno will supervise all aryanbabethreads, and Sandee will be responsible for the hindubabethreads.

Two acronyms..CMB and PMA. Persistent moderation abuser. Guess the first.

If there is no nudity or pornography, I agree that babe (or dude) threads should not be closed.

In re Hot or not: Scarlett Johanson appears to be prettier than she really is. I know that that sounds paradoxical but it is too complicated to explain why. Keira Kneightly has the same quality.

Hindu babe threads.. Hmm. Why restrict myself? :D If I'm going to post, I'll post eye-candy material in general. However, I agree with the others; if guys can have their female babe threads, females should be able to start a male babes thread (provided it's not too indecent). I'm not sure whether I'll contribute or not. I might browse though! I find those threads a bit distracting (not necessarily in a bad way). It's just that a few might end up posting mostly in such threads rather than contribute in the other threads.

Let's face it - there was something unnatural about the HOT OR NOT thread being closed merely because I posted some pics of beautiful (yet clothed!) girls with beautiful-girl-type bodies, after we were all forced to look at post after post of boyish, skeletal heroin-addict/models on the preceding pages.

That ain't God's plan, people! If His idea of Eve had been Kate Moss, he'd have given chickens bedroom eyes ("her beak clucked no, but her eyes said yes, yes YES!"), and knotholes in trees would emit pheromones.

Furthermore - and I say this as an Internet Nutzi - if we're gonna feature threads endorsing genocide, ethnic cleansing, mass sterilization and Iron Maiden records, it's not like a little Tasteful Quim is gonna damage our respectability.

The reason I closed that thread after your pictures was because at that point I realized it was becoming a babethread.

We have experience with those threads. Within a very short period people make those the only really active threads. I don't mind pictures of women obviously, but those threads tend to fuck up the quality of the site in general. This is experience speaking.

I respect a no in any case but back when we had the babe thread going I felt it was, for the most part, tasteful and at times even classy. Maybe the reason the other threads die out is cause, when presented with one of our primary goals in life, intellectual debate seems so miniscule in comparison.

Stan, its healthy for males to look at pictures of females.
maybe it will also cure our friend from Finland:o
if we keep it with no nudes,and only 1 thread I dont think there will be anything wrong.
its a good racial education,we talk about race all the the time, but a picture is better then 1000 words.
this way we will be able to see how females from different places in the world look like.. its very educational.

The result was a degradation of the quality of the rest of the place. Of course it is healthy to ogle scantily clad hotties, but that's not why this board was opened.

do you think we are that shallow????
to pay 100% of our attention to babe threads?
this is a forum with quality people you dont have to worry about it, if it was a site like stormfront then thats something else.
here you can trust the people,and you can see that 95% voted for it, half of them are females!
we can try it,its not like its something that we cannot ban if we wanted to,if you see something wrong you can close it down.

Thank you for your vote Sandee. For the record, though, MP doesn't know what he is talking about. Every babesthread coordinator is obligated by forum law to post innumerous compromising photos of him/herself in the appropriate threads. Non-babe coordinators are excluded from this requirement, though.

How was it not a babe thread before that point? Why not just remove the 'offending' post rather than locking down the whole thread like the warden at San Quentin when the coloureds start to riot?

We have experience with those threads. Within a very short period people make those the only really active threads. I don't mind pictures of women obviously, but those threads tend to fuck up the quality of the site in general. This is experience speaking.

I have experience moderating/administrating several forums and I can't say I've ever noticed this happen. I believe the members of this forum are too dedicated to the major issues to be too distracted.

How about a trial run? If things do go rotten then it is easily fixed and no long term harm has been done. I do expect though that the thread will be very popular to begin with for two reasons: One, new threads with wide appeal always are, and two, there will be a certain novelty appeal after having the topic held back for so long. Understand those things and don't panic and I think after the initial surge the thread will just tick over like a "what are you listening to" thread.

If you still are not happy then what about a thread like the 'hot or not' thread that is kept on track through careful moderation? I can't for the life of me see what kept that thread within the rules to start with but whatever it was could be done again.

Let the women post their "hunk" pics and the guys post their "babe" pics on the same thread. That way, we get to see what the women get squidgie over/they get to see what we get wood over. It's a winner!

But, to the question, the Mods/Admins are very quiet on this topic. I, as well, wonder what is the reticence to "allowing" a "Babe-o'-the-Day" thread here. Never understood its prohibition.

I don't think there was anything "special" about it. Burns was simply being lenient (well, lenient by his rigid anti-babesthread standards, anyway) and watchful. il ragno's pictures were probably the straw (or wood, rather) that broke that camel's "back", though.

This isn't a democracy, first of all. Second of all, how much do you contribute, financially, to the site? Third, *experience* says that babe threads aren't conducive to bringing the best conversations to the phora. Fourth, you don't know who owns the site, or how decisions are made. Fifth, there are other sites you can go to for babe threads and porn. The dictatorship doesn't stop you from going to them. Sixth, about 35% of the people seem to be against it, which is no clear mandate, particularly when you look at which people are in which group.

A subforum just for admiring feminine charms is a sensical idea. The opportunities to admire such aesthetic pleasures ought not be denied to anyone. From cave scribblings in Lascaux, to Venus of Willendorf, to the statue fo Athena, right up to Chinese pillow books and Renaissance nudes, humans have been creating and enjoying the visual iconography of the beautiful female shape.


Ah screw it! Lets riot!






No Tits No Peace


No Tits No Peace

:deadhorse:

Actually, on second thought, it probably is a bad idea for the site quality because I remember the old Phora babe threads always had 55,000+ views, but as a man I still would like to see a subforum just for it, so we can find and trade beauties. A scavenger hunt itz! It'd also suck up alot of bandwidth, something to consider as well.

So maybe for practical reasons its a bad idea, but for principal, it's 100% good.

We have experience with those threads. Within a very short period people make those the only really active threads. I don't mind pictures of women obviously, but those threads tend to fuck up the quality of the site in general. This is experience speaking.

One itty bitty babe thread and we females can post our hunks in there too and in one little thread we will admire the beauty of humans in general.

The internet is inundated with "babe" and "hunk" forums. There is no shortage of these to view if one so chooses.

If someone wants to post a photo to show some type of racial difference in a thread of that topic is one thing. As it is, those threads too quickly evolve into a babesthread of photos photos photos, like some type of post your babe here contest.

Astute observation on normal male interest in females. I don't think anyone is making a claim that such attraction is anything otherwise. This isn't a matter of wight or wong, it simply doesn't belong here.

I don't know where folks get the idear that their divinely ordained rights extends into every stretch of teh internets. Allowing pashus to have a voice is what brought about much of the current situation in the world today. The fact that a majority agrees upon anything, and then that opinion isn't enforced, and tantrums are thrown reflects poorly on that collective.

Either that or "babe threads" should be allowed. If I decided to compile the utterly worthless lounge posts that have been made in the last month alone, I would be here all night. My view is basically that the standard is very low in this sub-forum, so banning "babe threads" is incongruous. If there were no lounge at all or it were held to a higher standard, then I would support the proscription. That is not going to happen, so I voted in favor of babe threads.

There are of course many places on the net where you can view 'babe' pictures. If my wish was just to see photos of beautiful women I would not have bothered starting this thread. My desire is to see what kind of women this collection of misfits are into and to witness the kind of commentary that you won't find elsewhere. That aborted thread which prompted this request was already taking an interesting turn with contributions that you won't find on a forum with mainstream tastes and views.
Maybe other forums with a racially aware population have babe threads of their own, but I am comfortable here.

The phora can live without babe threads, but the phora can also live on with babe threads.

I'm not a closeted homo, but I've usually been at forums that did prescribe to an overriding ideology, yet even they degenerated because they allwed "babe" or "hunk" threads. I really like the highbrow posts, and I think it would be best if that remained the main focus of the forum in general. Allowing "babe" threads isn't a question of morality or decency, but more like catering to the lowest common denominator which will bring down the overall climate of the Phora.
