Didn't say anything about Saudis or Somalians. Pretty sure the high proportion of asian/middle-eastern students at the local college who crowd the PCs in the library would be upset without their daily dose of terrorism if the council barred it. Cultural sensitivities see?

easy: I am not opposed to video reporting human rights abuses. What I object to are sites specifically set up to display horrors such as people being eaten by wild animals, being burned alive, or being mangled in some way. These sites are set up to display horror, not to promote a political awareness.

Ain't seen or want to see any of those. However are you saying that jihadists sawing peoples' heads off is ok as it promotes political awareness?

easy: no. The videos you see of islamic executions are available from reputable news media sites (but TV chanels are not allowed to show graphic violence in the UK. There is even film of the jewish holocaust that is not publicly available because of its horrific content). If human rights are being abused then by all means shock us into action. But I do not see how film of accidental deaths and injury, or film employing CGI to create disturbing sexual scenes, is of any benefit to anyone except those not playing with a full deck...

That's pretty much what rotten was. Lots of photos of deadites on there. Steak and cheese was another one. My friend told me of a similar site the other day but I forgot to look it up and now can't remember what it's called - bad times. Bizarre has 'photo assault' (something like that) at the start with various headless/limbless Mexican drug dealers, Chinamen involved in hideous industrial accidents etc main reason I buy the magazine.

"people being eaten by wild animals, being burned alive, or being mangled in some way. These sites are set up to display horror"

That's my favourite kind of site ;)

Kod: No offence, Kod, but if you genuinely subscribe to that kind of "entertainment" you need help. (unless, of course, you are simply a rebellious teen. We have all sought that which our elders forbid, eh? It is only through experience that we realise our elders were right).

Posted on 11 Dec 2012 10:53:08 GMT
Nah I'm not a rebellious teen. I like the 'eurgh' factor.

I logged onto the internet the other day and found something truly shocking and disturbing.
Yes, it was a comment of Spin's that I actually agreed with.

Never been, never will.

I like to watch things die, from a good safe distance. Vicariously I live, while the whole world dies.

Kod: Well, perhaps you will experience a multiple orgasm as your own limbs are blown off, torn off, or eaten... As is the case with sexual porn, is not the real thing better than simply watching it on the net?

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Dec 2012 11:04:45 GMT
I doubt it, but then I don't tend to put myself in the kind of situation where I'd lose a limb or get eaten. And about the real thing being better, I couldn't possibly comment - but if I had to hedge a guess, then I'd say I doubt that being amputated is orgasmic. But then neither is looking at photos.

Spin says:
Kod: PS: It is not the distance from which you observe death that concerns us; it is your desire to observe it. Soon the net will not fulfill ypour desire and you will "get closer". Next time you speak out about the pleasure of observing death will be from a court-room...

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Dec 2012 11:07:36 GMT
I wouldn't take the distance thing too literally, they're song lyrics =P
I haven't killed anyone yet, so chances are I won't. Sleep easy ;)

Kod: "Yet". (Edit: If a person is conditioned to horror, then that persons morality, humanity and empathy is numbed. It is a phenomenon that afflicts soldiers and those who experience horrific events. To consciously choose to observe events which result in psychological trauma is odd in the extreme).

In reply to an earlier post on 11 Dec 2012 11:11:36 GMT
Yep.
Be afraaaid, be very afraaaid. Muhahaha.

We should all remember these are just allegations against Max Clifford and as yet nothing has been proven and according to the law as it stands everyone is innocent until proved guilty.

MA; Quite right. I said the same about Saville but you guys know more about justice than I do...

Not any more I'm afraid. The Press decide these days.

Trial by media for Max Clifford? The irony.

Update: Max Clifford sentenced to 8 years in prison "for eight historic counts of indecent assault where he groomed and degraded teenagers as young as 15 years old...Judge Anthony Leonard told the disgraced 71-year-old publicist he could have faced life imprisonment if the offences happened today." (The Independent, 2/5/14)
