The porn thread did Dusto - contravened ad network TOS.

The Random images thread will make a comeback - it's missing as a result of a "technical issue", not ransom to Goog.

Feel free to start another random image thread folks.

Ah I see.

Call me a prude but I always thought it didn't sit quite right with the spirit of DT anyway. Loads of places other than here if you want pretty ladies.

Now a thread where you can have a good old moan, much harder to find.

BuySellAds? The wee box on the right on the index?

Bollocks to the advertisers, they are wasting their time advertising on this forum anyway. Who the hell goes to the index page? I always go to the new posts URL.

Why does a small forum like this need sponsors anyway? Heart Internet have sorted the hosting, the mods ban the spammers and delete the shite, and Oli has to occasionally turn the server off and on again.

Everyone has to eat. And while I agree this forum doesn't need much in the way of running and that the content that generates the clicks that justifies the advertising rates comes from us unpaid contributors, Oli built the sandbox and let us play in it, if he wants to make some money from it, he's well in his right to do that, if some threads have to go to keep advertisers happy, oh well.

Moderation is few a far between around here and virtually no rules that apply to regulars. Have you read any other web design forums? None of us cunts would last five minutes before the ban hit.

I've said it before, but DT is pretty much the 4Chan of the design world.

I always known this, but reading it here made me feel... strangely powerless.

Beautiful women thread had turned from attractive women to anything with plastic tits and gash/arse shots anyway.

Anyone who has issue with Oli trying to finance the site through advertising should offer to pay 5 years hosting as a gesture of such.

Exactly, degenerated from art to porn. That is where it went wrong.

I'm not much bothered about that thread, the internet is full of porn, it's the principal of the thing...

From what I can gather, Heart Internet have that covered, but if they ever had a problem with content, I would happily put money towards hosting than have threads deleted.

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

It's not a matter of principal at all freelancr. Nothing else is getting deleted is it?

I like looking at pictures of girls. There's not a straight man on this planet who doesn't - all-out porn can be found easily elsewhere - this aint he place for it.

Leave it be.

Let me defend freelancr for a moment ... my work monitors the web pages I view. If I'm on DT at work, they don't mind, it's a work-related forum.

The problem is, when freelancr wants a wank at work, he can get away with it on DT. Actual porn sites may get him flagged.
