There's actually several different ones that randomly select when you change threads. It's a pretty well done advertisement. I didn't think that it was all that risque'.

Does anyone remember what this thread was about?? Oh well, it wasn't serious anyway. No Brian, I did not find the ads objectionable, I just wondered how many of us would be buying their wares.

The color discussion was* relevant, because a lot of businesses ban websites, including Bike Forums. So every time someone posts a scantily clad rider or there's an ad with a lot of skin showing, it runs the risk of getting flagged because the computers can look for a large degree of flesh tone now.

I certainly saw no problem with that discussion. I read about an email filter that looked for skin tones some time ago. Oddly, when I access the forums from work, certain images are not viewable. Yet I can click on "Reported Posts" in the mod queue and see images that are not suitable for work. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

And I can't be bothered to find out why. My blog images don't show up, but boobies are ok?
