I posted this in another thread, which was subsequently closed. To make sure everyone reads this I'm copying it to a new thread.
Okay, here we go. Sorry for being a party pooper here, but...
Everyone, Pinside is a pinball forum. I'm getting a bit tired reading this same "funny" stuff over and over. Some of the comments here are cringe-worthy in my opinion. I want Pinside to be a family friendly site and that includes being respectful towards the cool women who love pinball too and who also visit this site. Some of the posts in this topic (and other topics for that matter) are bothering me. The endless off-topic topic posts and negativity towards some people or groups of people in the hobby are bothering me. The endless posting of the same semi-nude pics is bothering me.
I'm asking all of you to please try and help steer Pinside towards a more family friendly pinball site. Yes, I know we have topic drain and ignore and all that and it's awesome. But that doesn't mean that anything goes.
Pinside has to be a cool place for everyone who loves pinball: men *and* women, in all parts of the world. If I get signals that some people do not feel welcome here anymore and when I'm actually getting annoyed by some of the posts here myself I think it's time to step in.
Thanks for your cooperation.
