Demise of the Girls with Models thread

Well guys it was good while it lasted. I'm not surprised it was eventually closed and I appreciate the moderators letting it go for so long. I am however irritated when the moderator Jason Cole mentions that the thread has "gone off topic" when the thread has been relegated to the "OFF TOPIC" forum for a long time now.

Moderators PLEASE change your rules to reflect your "increased moderation of adult content" (if you haven't already) to ban any photos of females wearing any kind of attire that shows any more skin than a bit of ankle or wrist.

Thank God I don't live in the US, Nanny state of the world!

Yep, we had a good run there Chris.

Don't fret, I have a cunning plan. I just found out that they fly RC planes in Saudi Arabia - gotta be some good material there.

If we promise to be good, maybe we could start again.

No naughty stuff.

No vids.

And No wandering off topic.

I never realized RCGroups was a family based site being I have seen first hand threads migrate to the extreme. I respect the family values of the moderators and it was never my intent to offend anyone, especially the younger more impressionable modelers.

You guys have fun and behave.

If we start a new thread and stick to photo's such as you have shown then it should be a success. Also, if we leave out the cheap off colour comments that will go a long way to helping it be a success.

Cheers

So, is the same thing happening over at flying giants? Aren't the 2 sites owned by the same guy or is flying giants not a family friendly website?

Some of the magazine covers from the 70-80s would be banned here, but I don't remember any outrage over them. Is my memory fading?

Nah, your memory is fine. The powers that be just seem to have been hit by a sanctimonious bolt of lightning lately - just fugettaboutit

Ah yes, the good old days - when men were men and moderators were put in nuclear reactors

Hahaa! Don't hold back, KiwiKid, just tell us straight out how you feel... I agree with you, those old magazine covers (RCM in particular) were quite lovely. I can't figure out the Puritanism being imposed on this site, the owners indeed have the right. Sad, though...

Good grief. Hehe, and I thought I'd find references here to one of the best American modellers around, Franny Brodigan. Oh well.
