I don't quite get it
27 May 2010
A few people have left JPG because of the photo's they find offensive here and have gone over to Redbubble.com or are planning to. I went there to check it out and noticed right away that a Safe Filter is required, so one would think there are pictures on that site that require them. So I checked, I turned off the filter, without an account (which you can't do on JPG) and searched nude. Over 33,000 photos appeared in that search and there were quite a few full frontal nudity, bondage nudity, sexulized nudity and even clay impressions of lady bits.
Can someone explain to me what the difference is? How come it's okay over there at Redbubble and not here? Now that the filter is sorted out, yes I admit there were some issues with it, but JPG has tried their best to address them, in my personal experience with them.
Is nudity, etc. okay there because one doesn't have the sense of entitlement that we all have here? We worked hard and campaigned to save JPG and we did it. So do we feel we have a personal stake in the site and they should do what we ask them to?
I just don't get it, and I miss the friends who have left. =(
