banner ads of 'pig woman'

Hi folks,

Don't want to be the one that bursts any bubbles, as I like the eye candy just as much as the next, BUT the various banner ads with the cleavage and pig nose seem to be out of place. The terms and conditions of the site that are published state:

"While we encourage discussion about a wide range of subjects, there are certain areas which elicit more animosity and subsequently far more flames. As a result you agree that discussions involving politics, religion, nationalities or anything of a sexual nature be reserved for other message boards that are better venues for these topics and will not be discussed on this website."

My wife is wondering what kind of site I'm spending so much time on that depicts women like this. Personally, I dont think it does much for creating an upstanding & professional image behind our community. I understand that sex sells in so many industries, but I think it'd sit better to have a chick in a bikini wearing a Rebreather, as opposed to pig woman who is clearly not doing anything diving related.

Re: banner ads of 'pig woman'

I'm not trying to start any message board brawls.....but come on, are you serious. With all the sexually driven ads in scuba magazines today, Curts pictures are tame. If your so worried about what your wife thinks maybe you can try explaining to her thats it's 2009, and every type of media uses sex to sell. I saw a commercial for rice the other day, that almost made me blush.

Try skimming through a scuba mag, and count all the big burly sexy men, and all of the chicks with there thong bikinis, and big boobs hanging out. As far you finding it offened, I really don't believe you're being serious, and like T.V., radio, print, and internet no one is forcing this stuff on you. IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT, TURN IT OFF.

Well, your bold reference to the terms and conditions has to do with discussions....not pictures.

Don't buy the product.

I'm so sick of this nonsense where others feel the need to impose their "standards" on me. Lke getting a drink on Sundays in 1/2 of cave country - all the locals are narrow minded fools who think they get a better place in heaven by stopping ME from drinking. I always like to point out to them that there's a very high correlation between poverty, and dumbass restrictions like that.

Anyway, ask your poor wife to avert her eyes. Or grow up.

Actually it is not ad for diving at all, it is for the BTS party and the theme from the beginning is "Party Pig". Besides, I can't help that my nose looks that way, I don't have enough money for the surgery.

p.s. I'm a wife and I am not offended, there is a time and place to be serious and most threads here stay on the topic. This is CLEARLY folks getting together to meet and have downtime and fun.

LOL...hahaha now that's funny.

I gotta say I can't take people that make issues where there shouldn't be one. If the OP hadn't brought this up, no one would have cared, and I would have had a productive Saturday....now I gotta sit on RBW all day checking to see who else thinks this is bull.
