I'm Very Sorry if I Offended...  Reply with quote  

I posted something I shouldn't have and I'd like to apologize to anyone I offended. I linked a page that I had thought only had one cartoonish picture on it; the page turned out to have many thumbnails at the bottom that contained more visual information than nearly anyone would ever want.

I'm VERY, VERY sorry.

If you think I haven't learned my lesson, I had also sent the link to a coworker who opened it in front of the guys here at work. Although said guys now think I'm ultra cool, I'm really embarrassed. Embarassed

I've learned my lesson and will be a whole lot more careful in the future!

Very Happy

I personally thought it was a badly posted picture because some nut had shaded all the news-making parts off.

Cheer up Katy. There are worser posters, like me, for instance.

And you should be embarrassed, Katy O. I mean, it's not the nudity I was offended by but whose nudity it was. Next time you go all pornographic on us, pick someone more attractive and in a more attractive pose.

If I could find a picture of Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the buff, I would post it. Alas, I keeping looking and looking......

I think I've mentioned bukkake (don't google) at least twice in here, so don't go apologizing or I'll have to join in.

Like I said in the other post, I thought the introduction of the link: "Heh. If you mis-read the title, you're wondering why anyone thinks that Brit has ever hidden her good stuff." was pretty self explanatory.

I immediately assumed it was a another link to the same pics which had been linked to in the past. I thought it was pretty easy to avoid seeing them again by NOT OPENING THE LINK! After reading the negative comments, I went to the link so I could make sure my assumptions were correct before making my response. Sure enough, the link was as expected. But as Katy pointed out, the big picture had a cartoonish picture on it, and the small ones had the newsmaking parts shaded out, as Lisa pointed out.

Guess what? If you don't want to see pictures of Britt not hiding her good stuff, don't open a link that says it is of Britt not hiding her good stuff!!! If you can't heed the warning, don't blame your misfortune on the person who warned you.

Wonko,

I think that assumes that Britt HAS good stuff. Her stuff, apparently, not so good.

Just always put an NSF label for any link that leads to even partial nudity. That way you've warned them, accounted for the most prudish of work environments and the reader is responsible for their own actions.

That said, I'm surprised anybody here missed the cast iron skillet to the head clue your post gave as to what would be at the other end of the link.

I googled that the first time you posted it. However, you didn't provide photographic proof. Wink

Well, Katy O, maybe this pose of Paul Rudd can hold you over for a while.

You know that pic of Paul just isn't quite as sexy as this one of David Beckham.

NSFW if you have a thing against underwear ads.

Well, Ginjg, you did say "any link that leads to even partial nudity."

I'd say that those pics qualify. I mean, just take away the sheet or the undie, and it would be full frontal nuditude.

Shocked

Well, you see, I don't have a prudish workplace, I was just trying to be considerate of those Boardellans that do.
