    Default I do not like being in the middle of this

    I personally would draw the line at posting pics of people's kids on this site. But, almost five years ago I posted site rules here and have attempted to honestly and strictly enforce them ever since.

    Here's the thread at issue: Addicted to the site, are you?

    Here's the email I received:

    I don't mind that he goes to my Livejournal and read about my life. That shit is so outdated... But posting pictures of my kids, and then having someone else make Memes of my kids? Why does Seri get away with having them get taken down and I don't?

    I've NEVER posted pictures of my children NOR the website in which I created for my FAMILY.

    If I have to pay to take them down, I will. I just find it really sad that this website, in which I came at its conception, has turned into The Gaige Show.

    He's abused power by banning Sugaree because she got under his skin.

    He wants to fling whatever hatred towards me, fine. The pics of my kids? Come on. That's not right and it shouldn't be allowed.

    Please take them down.
    The site rules are clear on this issue:

    4. Do not ask the Administrators to delete or edit anything on this site except based on a specific violation of a rule listed below. No exceptions will be granted.


    B. Personal Information: Don't post any photo of another person on this site without that person's consent, unless you can also prove that same photo is viewable from another publicly accessible URL. Do not post any RL information about another person on this site, if that information tends to reveal the person's RL name, address, place of employment, social security number, phone number, or similar identifying information, unless you can also prove that same information is viewable from another publicly accessible URL.
    I'm very very sorry, but as much as I find this situation personally distasteful and I feel soiled by this matter, I do not see how I can take down the photos without also taking down this entire site.

    As I often do in matters like this, I've posted a poll to determine whether we should change the site rules going forward to allow admins to delete pics of people's kids when those pics were posted by the kids own parents on a publicly viewable forum.

    As far as the person principally affected by this drama, again I'm very sorry for your situation. But perhaps you should use this as a wake up call, as your opportunity to retire from the Internet and pursue a more wholesome lifestyle with your family. Whether you want me to or not, I will pray for you and hope you find peace.

    Attacking players of the game/posters here is wha the site is about, not their family.

    Why should the rules be changed over one whiny bitch?
    They've been the same (more or less) for the last 5 years.

    I think the fact that the pictures were publicly available should be the end of any question regarding the rules or removing any pictures.

    Publicly available should relate to being posted on this site, not google searching someone...cause that's just stalkerish.

    FYI also, nobody should donate money for me to do or not do anything in this situation. I don't want it and and live in comfortable surroundings by myself, so I would go to hell and also be the world's biggest asshole if I took money from anyone in a worse situation than I'm in to remove pictures from this site. Money would not influence any decision I would make in this case, so please don't send any.

    Fuck no, change nothing. Poll shouldn't even have been posted. The pics are publicly availible and she's used her kids rhetorically forever now. Her own fucking fault making them relevant here and making people want to do that shit to her.

    This poll isn't about whether or not someone was stalker-ish. It doesn't matter how the pictures were found, only that they were publicly available.

    I've NEVER posted pictures of my children NOR the website in which I created for my FAMILY.
    Gregory, Jayden, and Johnathan

    She has a website dedicated to her family, publicly accessible to everyone in the world. It's a bit more than finding some old Photobucket someone forgot about.

    The site has been recently updated .. and seriously .. a site for her family? Does she really think her family are the only people in the world who are going to visit that site?

    If one of my flames is eventually going to lead to one of these asshats making pedo related pics about my kids, i'm pretty sure I'm done here.

    I think that whole thread and everyone in it is pathetic and should be banned from this site forever, furthermore LFG you should do the right thing for everyones soul including your own and for the sake of the community and take down this sitge forever. When i origionally started coming here it was for unbiased good information to classes and mechanics, now this place is just a cesspool of pathetic people. Anyways im gonna get flames w/e but whatver this sight is disgusting now and Gaige needs to go away and get help.


    Oh and at the very least no dont deleate whats the point you gonna let this site continue you to be a festering oozing sore might as well let it go all the way.

    I honestly don't see why these dumb fucks get offended over pics of their kids and family, if you post them anywhere on the internet expect them to end up being ridiculed here if you blather incessantly about them in your posts.
