I do not want to make a rant for it to be exploited, but I just logged in after a long weekend and I am disgusted.
People are making rants over other people's looks now? I applaud the moderator for taking action against this because the thread I saw was very cruel and the OP should be downright ashamed of himself.
I ask now, WHEN DOES THIS MADNESS END? If this section hasn't already been exposed in the past, it has now. Threads being created with the words GAY and HIV in the title as ways to mock people, and people's looks becoming topics. HAVE SOME OF YOU EVEN GRADUATED FROM GRADESCHOOL?
I don't want this to turn into my old rant on bullying, but i'm starting to think that there are people with serious issues on here.
I am quite aware that there is more than one way to catch AIDS so i went with the one that i thought would fit.
There's no reason to come on here and suggest that my step father was a homosexual. You have no idea how much that man meant to me, you seen an opportunity to ridicule me at his expense regardless of the consequences. This here exactly exemplifies the very thing i'm talking about, and I seriously expected better from you believe it or not.
R.I.P Warrior. An honorable career. An honorable man. An honorable life. You will be missed.
Were those specific pictures of her posted on here from her? If not, then that's uncalled for, and it was designed with no other purpose than to mock her because the OP found her unattractive. Truth is, that woman did not set herself up to have a thread made of her with her pictures on it. From what I know, she doesnt spend her time in rants mocking other people. She did nothing to deserve this.
Personally, I thing merely closing that thread was far too nice from the mod.
No those pictures of her weren't posted with her consent but those pictures were set to public on her facebook profile. I'm sure if there was any kind of exposure there e.g. if she was on here pretending to be a man, the thread might still be open. (although the mods would have probably deleted the pics/ personal details.
As I said the thread was pointless because there was no exposure.

Besides, I thought you looked like Bully Ray. a raptor? what?
Yeah, the one where I'm a bit overweight from a few months ago.. I thought it was hilarious when I first heard it, had the quote in my sig for a while. LOL
The madness will never end. The staff can either close, delete or edit a thread, that's all. They can not know when somebody will "go nuts".

I have posted pictures of myself and some people have made fun of me saying I look like Henry Rollins/ Lance Storm/ a raptor. I don't give a shit. I've also taken shots at plenty of people myself, it's all a bit of fun
The reason that other thread got closed was more because there was no exposure, it was rather pointless.
Bullshit. If you post your pictures in rants you basically allowed that people made fun of your looks. If you posted it somewhere else (mainly in the post your pictures thread) you haven't give a permission to be ridiculed. Look at the rules

Nice logic, I can't make fun of somebody in that thread so I will do it in rants ny
There are many users who don't post in the rants but have posted the pic because they want other people to know how they look and not to be part of the rants.
When Apocalypto made that photoshop of your pic with the glass of wine you had every right to ask the mods to remove it. You acted like you don't care but that doesn't mean that everybody who posted his pic outside of rants allowed to be ridiculed. Post your picture thread should not be used for rants.
What's next? Making a "how many brothers and sisters do you have?" thread in a anything section only to make a rant about the users who have a sister to mock them that you want to sleep with the girls?
