Not offended at all. No stir. It's just that I opened the thread while at work and a bare breast popped up on my screen. I was surprised because this type of shot is not the norm for this particular thread. Here in the US a lot of people avoid viewing those type shots while at work or on a shared computer. Also a lot of people posting those type images give a little warning in the title of the thread..."NSFW".

I guess my question is, why are people looking at non-business related sites while at work?

:lol:


my opinion on the matter.. its not offensive .. and i'm far from uptight about almost anything..


but , I was a bit surprised to see the photo..
and my initial thought.. was oh ok so wheres the line ?
some time ago someone posted a pic of an almost naked woman .. if I recall it was in 5d3 thread.. , someone suggested it was in the wrong thread possibly maybe?? , poster apologized and removed..

I guess he could have argued about it ..
but yeah , some people work in enviroments where reputations need to be upheld (professionally ) , or enviroments with children..

I work in a very blue collar environment .. so i'd probably get jokes from co-workers..

I used to go to a car forum ,, this was many years ago .. and they would censor curse words . but they'd use very silly fillers like "fluffybunny" for the F word .. every so often the mods would switch them up .. I thought it was amuseing..anyway a bunch of members were very bothered by it .. and watned a vote in order to change it because we're all adults and blah blah... .. Owner said no vote that's the way it is ..
I personally liked it because at the time my son was 2nd grade~ ish.. and we would view the forum together and I didn't have to worry about what he was reading ..
No surprises at the wrong time this way..

I'm a Nurse Practitioner in a private GI/Liver disease clinic. I'm in front of a computer all day in the office. I click on POTN throughout the day between patients, on lunch, or whenever I'm all caught up and waiting for everyone else.

Ask any HR professional and they’ll tell you that even though the general perception is that the rules are different while on break the use of company equipment for personal use is not allowed at any time. Lunch can get you fired too.

As for the picture I didn’t find any surprise or offence in it. I’m actually surprised that it hasn’t happened already in the past - at least that I’m aware of.

There used to be a G+N post your wife thread. It got shut down. This happened not for content of photos but rather for members arguing. Just saying.

Not too long ago we had a VERY prolific poster on POTN, something over 21,000 posts. Averaging 20-30 posts a day during the work week. He worked in IT at a state university. I always wondered how he could get any meaningful work done..
After he retired his post count dropped to almost nothing.

I find that a quick cruise through POTN (and a couple other photo forums) helps clear my head during the work day. Sometimes it's no more than a few seconds to read the last couple posts in a thread. Not all work places have an issue with that.

nice shot but I would reserve this for G/N section. Another option would be to post a link and advise that the shot is NSFW. I just opened it at work and would rather I had not!
