Dear DCSportbikes member,

If it wouldn't trouble you too much, I would really appreciate it if you could put some warnings on some of the threads you start if they could be of a sensitive nature. For example, and I'm not calling you out zxten, but it's a great example...the thread "and the category is...people that it would be fun to hurt" sounds like a good read. Then you open it up and there is a terrible story pasted right there about cruelty to animals....extreme cruelty.

I'm not trying to take away the fun in posting, just making a request that something like that could have in the title "Warning: Animal Cruelty" for those of us who hate to see that sort of thing. No, I'm not pretending things like this don't exist and I'm not going through life with my head in the sand, but some things I would just rather not read.

So....I make you this promise. Agree to put little warnings in the titles where needed and I agree not to post pictures of your mom and me in the tub.

Thanks,
Travis

Ignoring it won't make it less real. Awareness of animal cruelty isn't pleasant, but the more people who are aware of these types of things the better off the animals will be overall.

That's not the point, he doesn't want to read about it. He is already aware of it.. he is just asking for the common courtesy of placing a label that the thread might be sensitive to some...


Wow. Just..................wow.

Yea dude, I was eating my lunch when I read it. It seriously makes my stomach turn to think about that thing in a cage, alone, scared, helpless, thinking god (its owner) is coming back for it. I know people do this shit, but I just pitched a $5 sandwich in the trash cause I seriously have no appetite.

Kill a fucking dog, I don't have as much empathy, but a little puppy... that shit just makes me sick.

I label **POLITICAL**. I still have dumbass ignorant fucks come in and bitch, but at least they were warned. It's basically like any *Graphic* post on a wreck, some people don't want those images with them for the rest of thier life.

An easy request.

What the f*ck difference does it make how old the dog is. Is this Logans Run for animals now.

Back on topic, you don't like what you are reading, close the window. Easy as that. I don't think we need to start tagging stuff because it might be upsetting. The NSFW is all that is really necessary so people don't get busted at work looking at inappropriate content. You ever change the channel to a TV show detailing graphic surgery and get grossed out...change the station.

I respect Maladi's point but the stuff is getting a little over complicated.

Or, you're just lazy and somewhat inconsiderate.

The picture was not really graphic. They weren't showing the euthanization or anything.

It's not your job to direct my empathy toward animals. Older dogs have more of a capacity to care for themselves so on the grand scale I don't find it as tragic. No need to argue about it, it's just what it is.

I am considerate enough to label political, i do it, it isn't hard, it isn't something someone requested. It's simply exactly what he asked for, courtesy, not a rule or complication. Like I said, $5 sandwich... in the trash... i can post a picture of it for you.
