Nearly Naked Women!!!

I, as much as the next red-blooded american male appreciate the female body. But I don't think we need them in our classified section. Let's just post pics of car parts and not body parts. Thank You for your consideration.

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

I agree I suppose, but I sure do like looking at them. Those are some sweet ladies, and like the that 69 Chevelle too!

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

While I enjoy a bikini clad woman as much as the next guy, I thought the content on this site including the classifieds were suppose to adhere to a "family friendly" theme?

I would expect to see that content on Ebay, not here on TC.

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

I sent a PM to Al earlier today. I, too, enjoy the sights, but they really don't belong in the classifieds.

Thumbs down Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

Yes, God forbid somebody's child sees a scantily dressed woman and becomes scareed and/or offended. No way they'd see something like that anywhere else in our society, like on a billboard, or a magazine cover, or TV for that matter. Delete the pictures and save the world, WOO HOO!!! Good grief.........

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

Right, I'm stupid, I missed the point. How's about I just disagree with all you "guys" and leave it at that? Thanks.

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

The issue that came up some of the few emails to me was guys tend to check the classifieds from work on their lunch breaks or while working, or whatever. The pictures pop up and, well... taa daa..... I checked from work and got the same result - was hoping nobody would walk in and wonder what the heck I was surfing.

The pictures themselves were certainly not offensive and also brings up a point about who owns them and if they are allowed to post around the internet on sites like ours. I suppose if said gals were holding the parts for display, that would be ok? Marketing for sure.

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

as the original poster of this thread i meant not to stir up a hornets nest of moralities. i have seen this tactic on ebay and just find it annoying if nothing else. my point plain and simple is...

this site has been very good to me and i hope in some way i have returned a small portion of my gratitude by helping others when i could.

this site is THE BEST site of it's kind and there are reasons it is the best site. one of them being we stick to the subject at hand. if you've ever cruised any other camaro or f-body sites you might agree with me that there is very little quality info such as Team Camaro provides, restoration, instructions, trouble shooting, and the informational pics provided by everyone here are astounding to say the least. to prove my point, has anybody besides me noticed that more and more questions regarding 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gen camaros are popping up more and more often? it's because those related sites just don't have the quality or helpful guys that we have. their avatars take up 90% of the screen with little or no quality responses.

why, why, why sully our reputation by such marketing tactics? on ebay i think the only reason they post such pics is because the seller just wants to see his hit counter skyrocket. but, does it actually sell the part? nooo! does it boost his vanity...yes.

if you have a part for sale just take a pic of it and post it. there's plenty of porn sites readily available elsewhere on the web, i just didn't want it to get started here on this great site. one guy does it and nobody comments so another and another does it and soon we have a softcore porn site going with camaro's as the second subject. i know this is taking it to the extreme but why let it start?

Re: Nearly Naked Women!!!

All is cool. I emailed the seller and he responded very nicely. We never had any rules about this and probably won't, unless it comes up quite a bit.
We do receive a lot of traffic and the classifieds show several hundred thousand requests a month so trying to get noticed can be important.

We may look at a small fee for those who would like their ad to "stand out" in the listings. That would be fair and provide an alternative.

Like mentioned, it's everyone who participates here that make it a nice place to visit.
