What's Now Acceptable on JPG?
15 Oct 2009
Under the old JPG regime, there were standards to be upheld, and if a photo didn't meet those standards, it was taken off the site. It has come to my attention that the rules have changed a bit. The new rules on porn are: " We're okay with artful nudes; however, sexually explicit work is not appropriate. We defer to the community's discretion in determining what is artful, gratuitous or explicit. Objectionable content may be flagged using the 'Report a problem' link on the photo page."
I don't think that goes far enough to eliminate the objectionable photos that are now appearing. I personally have 'reported' several photos, and those same photos were reported by others on the site, yet they continue to appear.
I realize that I can make the personal choice to visit the page of someone whose work includes sexually graphic images including full frontal nudity of both men and women; however, I am not given the choice when one or more of these photos is spotlighted, and appears at random. I find that completely objectionable and tasteless.
I am not sure what we as JPG participants can do; I for one would like to see the rules changed so that these objectionable sexually explicit and demeaning photos are banned all together.
I have included some nudes on my pages, but as you can see, they're presented with tongue in cheek humor rather than jaw dropping disgust. I don't have enough nude photos, so I've included two that allude to my wondering...have the folks at JPG lost their marbles?
