Warning! The link below is to a video that is 'workplace appropriate', the page it is displayed on may contain banner ads linking to sites that some feel may be inappropriate. If your sensibilities may be offended by suggestive banner ads please do not click on this link.*

And then there are plenty of other videos on this site, some worksite clean some not. This is! Have fun.

* One would think that anyone familiar with the internet would not need such a specific warning. If you don't like what you see, close your browser.

Porn?!

O sure...not the video, but the link is riddled with PORN! DAG!!! As well as adware and spyware! I hope others won't be tempted by "You gotta see this" like I was.

Wel Joe, you probably increased the people checking the link out by 400%!

:D :D :D

And if people visit that site because of porn, so be it. I just like a fair warning. Doesn't seem like an unreasonable request to me.

Actually, some warning was given. Andy said some were not "worksite clean".

Hey I showed you ONE (1) link to ONE (1) video which definitely is clean. If you decide to continue clicking on despite the warning you come back and complain about the fact that you were unable hold back your clicking finger? 'scuseme?

And adware? I have no idea, I don't even see that. I'm running on a real OS that is not concerned about adware. Matter of fact I have to admit due to that fact I didn't even realize it was ridden (if it is).

Bottom line: your 12 step program for/against whining isn't over yet. Back to your meetings!

Anyone who clicked on your link knows you're full of Bologna . . . and you do too! That site is FULL of porn...no clicking required! Shame on you Andy! SHAME ON YOU!

As for adware and MY OS...my browser is so REAL, it tells me when it exists on a page and still filters it. Instead of just letting you surf blindly. Then again, blind seems to work for some. Deaf and dumb works too. Or...am I being too ambiguous for you?

I already said, back to your whiner meetings! I showed you one link and you couldn't contain yourself to click somewhere else. Watch where you are clicking and you will not be exposed to questionable material. Besides, I was going back to this site, just to see if I find that porn you were talking about. I couldn't find it. I saw a few half naked girls (after I was specifically looking for them, becuase before tat I was just skipping those links) but no porn

'nuff said!

Ok, gentlemen, I believe there's been enough said here. If you must continue this discussion (although I believe both of you are (or should be) smart enough to realize nothing more useful would come of it), please take it off-line.

Warning: There Is No Porn!!! :(

Now I'm pissed.... Joe said there was porn, and there is NO PORN. Porn... that's funny. The closest you can get to porn on that site is the top video's of the week. Anyone wanna guess why they are the top video's of the week.

If you like that site, you'll love these. I highly recommend them.

www.ehowa.com
www.big-boys.com
www.collegehumor.com
www.shooshtime.com

There are many more that you can link to from those. You can thank me later.

Joe, you seem to have a VERY low bar over which you consider things porn. I had to go there just to look for myself, could not find anything that most would consider "porn" at all. I have seen similar on network TV! Of course there are those who consider Nework TV over the bar also. Never mind Cable. :D :D

Yes, maybe I do. And I guess in today's society that makes me a freak. And I'm OK with that too. I guess it's times like these when I realize the true colors and the true "character" of the world today. Quite frankly, I want NO part of it! I want to be able to come in here with my 13 year old son peeking over my shoulder and I don't have to worry about what he sees. Not to mention my 8 year old daughter. I don't hide ANYTHING from my children. I live and lead by example...a principle that's long since been forgotten by most. Well, I haven't forgotten!

I should hope the only thing my kids see when they see their father browsing through www.bmwlt.com is a group of people that LOVE motorcycles, riding, and everything about it. And if I happen to be in the Chit Chat forum, I would hope that I wouldn't have to shoosh my kids away from me everytime I click on a link that takes me away from this forum. Wrong again! I've recently learned that "You gotta see this" really means "You ain't missin' a thing. Move on!".

But! . . . I guess good judgement, or at least a fair warning is too much to ask. Too much to expect. Bill Clinton said that oral sex isn't sex, and now we have a whole generation of kids that are giving each other oral sex . . . and the parents don't have enough backbone to tell them to STOP!!! No wonder people don't know what porn is! Maybe you're looking in the wrong places to find the definition! Don't ask the people that are selling it, for crying out loud!

I'm through defending my honor. Now . . . How's yours?

Easy there turbo....

Hey Joe - You say you want fair warning.... How about giant red letters that say "WARNING". I'm thinking with as uptight as you say you are, that would be plenty. Andy did more than enough to explain what to expect if you click on the link... way more than most. You might want to think about apologizing, he did nothing wrong.

Dang, I wish he had been president 40 years ago. Sure would have made my teenage years more fun. :eek:

The original post has since been edited. Think before you type Jeff!

Joe;

You are no more a ‘freak’ for observing your standards than the individual who chooses to view sexually explicit material. Either is only functioning within the confines of the moral standards each is comfortable with.

While I appreciate your desire to provide your children with the moral values that guide your household, shielding them from the realities of the world will hardly be successful. The reality is that they will have to understand all elements that make up our society and be enlightened enough to make choices within the moral boundaries you promote now and within the moral boundaries they choose for themselves as they mature.

To stretch the definition of pornography to include the banner ads surrounding the rather benign video clip that Andy was attempting to share, severely weakens the credibility of anything further you might say.

Additionally we have never presented this community as one which is geared toward families or especially toward children. This community is focused toward the owners and riders of BMW luxury touring motorcycles. The members of our community do a very good job at keeping their postings within the rules we have set in our site guidelines. Nothing in our guidelines requires posts to be focused with an eye toward propriety for adolescents or young children.

The members of this community are generally well-behaved, civil and intelligent and I am quite proud to count myself among them.

Oh, and my honor is just fine, thank you and I confident David’s is as well.

I edited Andy's original post to provide a slightly tongue-in-cheek but explicit warning in deference to Joe's original complaint about insufficient warning.
