Well that's how I feel about it at any rate. I have no ulterior motive.

If I wanted to simply ogle at scantily clad women, I'd google that term instead of hoping like hell someone posts something risque in a PGT 40ish times a year.

Celebratory gifs are fun and silly and full of nonsense and I think there's nothing wrong with that and I think the community as a whole needs to chill. But that's just one man's opinion. I'm here for the hockey talk, and if all gifs were banned, I'd still participate in the discussions. But I think it's wrong to ban them or to censor them above and beyond the already established guidelines.

I mean if we really want to get into it, you can read through any Game Thread and see every third post be about how player/coach/GM is Stupid/dumb/loser, which I actually find to be way more offensive then any .gif I have seen on CP, but yet that is barely moderated at all.

Again though we aren't banning or censoring the content. ALL we are asking people to do is to use a piece of forum functionality that exists - by placing that type of stuff behind a NSFW tag.

Let's not exaggerate or over-state what is being asked - which is a pretty reasonable request.

Different issue and not relevant to this conversation.
Moreover, if you find those posts offensive - report them.

Fair enough. I didn't mean it to sound like a personal attack. My apologies if my previous post was harsh.

FTR I'm pro scantily clad women. I just have no problem with them not being on CP. That's what reddit is for.

Sure, and honestly I have had my input, so no need to continue to drag it on.

NSFW!

I don't see what the issue is considering it's not being banned outright. To ensure the forum is as accessible as possible, and that no one has to be concerned about avoiding posts or threads in the environment they're in, they ask that these type of content be done be hidden behind a tag. I feel it's being considerate to those at work, or a public setting, or even those who may not want to even see that content. Not everybody here would be fond of it, and doesn't come here for it.

This. Game threads are just miserable places. It used to be fun to browse or participate in the game thread to discuss what you were seeing. Now discussion about the play is off limits and the thread is reserved for yelling at each other.

It's pretty simple if we view the requests from moderator as a one-off. It's not a patriarchal or puritanical debate. It not about censorship. Simply spoiler that image. Any image not requested to be in tags is currently considered OK, but that is also subject to change.

Can someone please explain the point of those gifs. Like what does a half naked women have to do with a Flames win?

If you can't come up with a reasonable answer, to me it's just being posted because A) she's good looking b) she's ahowing half her body c) she's a woman.

Now imagine you were a guy in a female dominated forum and after every win the women of the forum would just post ripped men in speedos....wouldn't you wonder why this was being posted? Wouldn't it be objectifying men?

That gif alone isn't objectifying women, to be clear. It's the fact it's being posted in a completely irrelevant thread that does that.

All gifs are irrelevant to Flames wins bud.

Thanks bud. Not all gifs are offensive. And I would love if all irrelevant gifs were banned from PGT. And all the stupid car pics in the GT as well.

Wouldn't want to offend the cyclists on the forum.

Dang it, I got dragged back in.

I don't know, half the fun of sport is the stupid superstitions.

I agree with you on the female gifs, but Star Trek heading around a tennis ball, and all those other one, meh harmless fun.

It is an internet forum about a hockey team, it isn't that serious.

Guess we have different ideas of what fun is. Can someone still answer the question before this thread gets sidetracked.

What is the point of that gif being posted, after a Flames win. I just want to see one reasonable answer.

Would you also post a picture of your mom on the forum dressed in a bikini?

Wow lets suck all the fun out of this place. Pretty soon people will just hang out in off topic only.
