Icon13 Neo nazi racism

Guys,
i have my concerns with regards to this thread and would welcome others opinions:
http://www.rolexforums.com/showthrea...0488#post10488

I think that this forum is a friendly and open forum, and is most welcoming to new members. But i think that any new forum must maintain standards and decency.
I think it completely innapropriate and offnsive that pictures are posted by white supremacist groups wearing racist t-shirts and striking nazi salutes with swastikas all over the place. I think that the offending pictures should be removed. We are a multicultural family here, and these images are offensive both to the brave soldiers and their families who fought and lost there lives aginst the Nazis and their evil in WW2, and to our members who are of differing ethnicity.
these abhorrent pictures should be remnoved.

No need to remove this thread, mamas. In fact, everyone should read it as a reminder of what we are and what we won't tolerate.

Good move guys this no place for racism or offensive matter.

It's good to see this post being left so we can all make our feelings known.

I think it's been erased JJ because the content was not in keeping with the views of the forum. Many members found it offensive.

I have to agree with everybody on that. I actually didn't look at the pictures up close untill today. I must say those were extremely inapropiate to put on a forum like this. Especially considering this is a world-wide forum and anybody can join. That can really make people mad. It's also quite offensive no matter what race you are. We have been talking about racism the last few days in humanities and the whole 8th grade has the same views on it. The views being racism is completly wrong and quite pathetic to tell you the truth. Anyway thats my two cents on it.

In our site guidelines :

Vulgarity and Sexual Explicitness...As a community with a diverse variety of members and readers, we ask that our members post without using vulgarity. Vulgarity not only includes vulgar language and pictures but also sexist, racist, anti-religious and homophobic language which may offend other members. In addition, the "masking" of vulgarity by inserting * or another keystroke in place of one or more letters in a vulgar term is unacceptable in most cases. We realize that there's a "grey area" of judgement with vulgarity but we ask that you'll respect others by avoiding vulgarity.

Don't worry, James. I'm keeping a close watch on him. The minute he steps out of line, he is toast, history, outta here, gone, kaput.

Ed, you're not doing your job. This site is rife with highly offensive pictures of pumpkins and fake TT YMs. You really have to tighten security here.

I keep trying, John, but they keep popping up faster than I can take them down. It's a full time job keeping up with the pumpkins and TT YMs on this forum.
