They've actually done it in a couple of other threads, replied with spam

It's not for me. For the same reason I can't go out and have a drink with half y'all (cause you might be weird looking) I'd rather not have underage german girls getting rammed with a big black cock on my laptop screen. That reason being, if I was just chilling and my girl plopped down next to me, like they do, and was like, "Whacha doin' hun.....um, what's THAT!"

or my boss rolling through, "Adonis, I got that report and ev....WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!"

^ yeah, not coo'

however, I have no more rights to this forum than anyone else. I can't tell Ableton how to run their forum and I don't believe anyone else should either. It's obvious through their actions they don't care about it. So, we have the options of either dealing or not dealing

All the house vs Crack Head arguments are not that strong

people own their homes, they have a right to that property - non of us own this forum, we have no rights to the space we post in. This space belongs to the people who pay for the space. It's their world, not ours

i'm guessing you've read a New Earth. be at one with the Eckhart-ness.
:D my missus and mum are right into it - I've watched a couple of the Oprah videos and he is pretty inspiring

but on topic....

Johnisfaster etc - look at Smuteks join date - he is one of the few original forum gangstas left - it would be very sad if people like Smutek stopped coming here over this

most of the time I'm not in a situation where I need to worry, but I have a 6 year old who sometimes hovers round or creeps up on me, I don't want him to start thinking "you mean I can do that with it??"

bah - we've all made the point known, and Ableton actually took steps to stop it - if you sign up now for an account you have to wait until a staff member physically approves it

obviously it's not working

true it's nowhere near as bad, but it's monday in Australia/NZ/Hong Kong/Japan etc etc etc - there are a lot of people who could be viewing the forum from the workplace while Berlin is still asleep and the porn has been there at least 12 hours

not a good look

yeah, the bot problem has improved over the past month or two, but I too was shocked to see the imagery in random threads while browsing the forum at my mother's dinner room table. While I do agree that Ableton moderation should be left to a minimum, I do think these images can bring unnecessary problems to forum users with bosses, girlfriends, mothers, etc. So, it would be wise for Ableton to delete pr0n related posts. Whoever is doing this seriously needs to get out more, or shit... open Live and make some music. I enjoy the absence of moderation on this forum, but pr0n-related imagery is disrespectful to the community. All you horn dogs can easily find your trash online with a quick google search; no one needs to see that crap here. I generally hate the idea of censorship, but this graphic and denigrating imagery devalues this place. OT stuff is cool, but this random shit inside innocent looking threads needs to go.

The only problem I had with the porn was I usually look through the forums only when I'm at work. So I had the manager next to me a and massive cock and tits appeared on the screen. No one saw but I had to leave the forum for fear that another visual barrage of fucking would attack me hidden in a thread about new live features. Now that I'm home I think we need more, maybe make the background a gif with some girl on girl action!?

+1 for giving a couple of high postcount members deletion rights.

It's not as if finding pr0n on the internet's that hard now is it, I mean, for those people who are looking for that sort of thing cos they've got a bit bored with the forum for 5 mins or seen a nice new bit of music kit and really feel the need to bash one off, there's always google, it's a really handy tool called a search engine.
Either that or head straight to youporn.com, I've, erm, heard that site yields quality results in that particular arena.

I thought the problem had been sorted at one point... :?:

Anyways, if there are now porn-infested pop ups here too then regrettably I'm outta here. I'm a teacher, and can't have debris like that within a mile of my laptop for professional reasons.

So genuinely - Bye (and thanks to all those who have helped me here in the past).

Porn (like violence) is now so prevalent in on the web that it no longer shocks or offends me. I'm numb to it. It doesn't really matter to me any more.

IMO, it's nothing more than a sad substitute for real human interaction, and if there was no demand for it, it would disappear.

my girlfriend saw a thread with a shitload of porn in it when i was checking the forums yesterday, and she said "oh yeah. nice."

she likes porn. fine by me,

but yeah, i know alot of people checking the forums on their jobs etc, and thats not a good thing now is it?

a pretty simple solution would be to just disallow posting images.
ofcourse people would post links, but the good thing about links is that you decide whether to click them or not.

I agree totally with smutek..and his comment is not one to try to be witty about..I think that was so low. By your type of wit, you come across as being some kind of low life scum!!

not necessarily true....at least one of them linked to .exe files which were probably viruses or spyware, not innocuous and not harmless.

I don't know why HTML even needs to be allowed on this forum, well, I guess those live screenshots can be occasionally useful.
