The above link is fairly gruesome if you've got much imagination. Still, I'm not comfortable with youtube having such a graphic display on their site. I'm curious as to what the rest of you think.

Could a mod please add "EXTREME BLOOD, GORE, AND DISTURBING AUDIO?"

Maybe by now they've put up the "disturbing content" flag or even had it removed, but the sooner they do either, the better.

I'm tempted to ask Bart to delete it altogether. I've received a flood of complaints, mostly that it made people ill. One person ruined his keyboard when he hurled, and now he claims either me or Bart owes him a new one.

For those in recovery from having clicked on Bart's link, here's some therapy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A2Jt4WOxN8&feature=related). Doesn't hurt a bit (although it's a little sad to learn that the singer died in 1997.)

Look, if you can't deal with the mayhem, then don't watch the video. It's that simple. No one forced you to follow the link, right? So please stop blaming me or Bart for your curiosity.

Look. I asked for the warning to be posted. It wouldn't have even been there if not for me. Still, the people are following the link, and the disgust is palpable.

Dino, I'm not blaming you personally. I mean, there are supermods around who should be watching you like a hawk. Nor do I blame Bart. One would expect this kind of thing from him.

But think of the children. We have young people on this site. Can't you perhaps put a temporary lock on this thing and toss it into the non-existent mod bar and grill so we can at least discuss it?

And maybe Dino for allowing it to continue.

And possibly Mac for refusing to put an end to the carnage once and for all. (Though she gets points for her definitive opinion on the issue of children.)

paprikapink
01-16-2008, 02:27 AM
So, to carry on in the vein of the OP, who was so uncomfortable with something so horrible being on YouTube that he posted it here to see how we'd feel about it (is that an accurate restatement, Bart?), we're close to the survey/flounce stage now. Survey options being, for instance, maybe:

a) Thank Cod Almighty there's a warning of gruesomeness cuz I know not to click it.

b) My eyes! My eyes! My soul! Yes I saw the warning, but how was I to know you MEANT it??

c) Hmmm, there's something you don't see everyday. Got any more like that?

Survey positions that still need options might be things like d) hey, I thought we had standards; e) Bart -- if you thought it was awful, why the hell are you showing me? If you eat rancid butter are you going to ask me to taste it to see if it makes me sick too? and f) what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

01-16-2008, 02:48 AM
Would this be a good time to reflect on the disparity between closing one thread (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88963&highlight=breasts), the topic of which was physical description of a newly introduced character vis-a-vis breast-size, and leaving up a link in another thread (this one) to a scene of graphic violence? I'm not saying either way is more righter than the other. Personally I'm just glad I'm not in a position to have to make calls like this. And they aren't necessarily parallel -- one is a thread that exists but is closed to new posts and the other is a link that would go away entirely if it were deleted. But I do think it's an interesting juxtaposition -- perhaps a reflection of our society's general aversion to sex and tolerance of violence?

Yeah, that's what I mean. Here's a nice little thread about writing and characters and descriptions, but it has boobs in it. And we close it down before it gets too raunchy. Then we have a thread about...well, about what this one's about...and we feel we need to leave it up because, um, I guess because it's there?

No way, man! If we did have a survey, I'd choose a) and perhaps throw in a little e).

But you've read the thread about breasts that was locked. It would give greater meaning to the sex/violence argument if you'd have a peek at the video to bolster your position.

I'll warn you it's bad all right, truly awful, but how can you form a solid position without first seeing the video?
