    Is there anything that can be done about near pornography in sigs?

    Navigating this site on my browser is becoming hazardous. My fiancee exploded on me because I was scrolling through FH and a pic of some chick on all fours wearing nothing but a thong and a football jersey was on the screen. She thought I was looking up porn. For real...

    Also, I am sure there are kids on this site, and its a little weird to have half naked chicks in every thread of the site...

    I know I probably sound like an old prude, but there is a time and place for this stuff. Hey, I like looking at pics of hot chicks as much as the next guy, I just think it should be confined to the Ladies Lounge where people actually looking for this kind of material can find it...

    I doubt people would be as welcoming of a photo of an oiled up dude in a thong used in a sig... I've actually considered using such a sig just to prove a point...

    If I'm not mistaken, there is an option in your user settings to turn signatures off.

    And if the pictures are THAT offensive to you there is always the report button in the lower left hand corner of every post.

    Ok, I'll change my sig pic to an oiled up dude in a thong with a dolphin logo tattoo on his ass.

    Bill, what's the difference?? Honestly, what's the difference between a man in a thong and a woman in a thong? If one is appropriate, the other is as well.

    I honestly don't feel this is an absurd request. Back in the old days photos of half-clad women were forbidden from sigs, I know because I was probably one of the first to do it nearly 10 years ago when I was a younger lad.

    It was a pic of Vida Guerra in a bikini with a super imposed dolphin logo on her butt. I had it for a month or two before I was kindly requested to remove it by a moderator... And that wasn't even close to the nearly pornographic photos I see in sigs today. Heck, one even has the porn website it came from clearly written on the photo...

    Seriously? I don't know of many women who encourage their partners to watch porn...

    There is also the issue that many people browser this site from work, which is also problematic for coming across random pics of women basically spreading themselves open for insertion...

    I understand your concern. I was half joking, but yes there are plenty couples who watch porn openly together. When you're at work you can always turn signatures off. I do the same especially because all those pictures in the sigs load the server with more data and could bring more attention to you...explicit or not

    I'm kind of with you on this. I love looking at T and A but sometimes I browse the site with my wife in the room and sometimes I show her funny quotes on here or the thread of showing a GIF when news broke that Dion Jordan was drafted.

    I remember scrolling through the posts where some hot bag was in someone's sig. It doesn't offend me but I do see your point.
