Well, you can't say they didn't give us fair warning of what they did not want posted on there. Some didn't listen. Boundaries were, in some cases, intentionally pushed. And now it's gone. I, for one, wish that it could have continued on in the spirit in which it was conceived.

So Mote it be.

cool.....
my wife says I don't learn anything here:

Definition: It translates to "Let it be so" or "So shall it be", and is often used as part of the dialog during rituals, typically in closing. The actual origins of the phrasing is a little obscure and based in old Anglo-Saxon.

I think the Malibu guys did it. They aren't cool enough to have such a thread and couln't bare to see us have one. I have proof too..... the other night ole mister police man TMC was on the site and spent shall we say "considerable" time going thru the Swimsuit thread. Now if he was "policing" it I am pretty sure he wouldn't have needed to become that familiar with the photos, I'd say he was more likely "viewing" if you know what I mean. :rolleyes:

Now for the HB thread? I am surprised that one has lasted as long as it has :rolleyes:

I knew it!! I knew it!! Look at the email I got from the Malibu guys!!!

Dear Mr. Mastercraft owner:

If you notice recently we had your prized thread on your site locked. How and why did we do this? We can because we manufacturer subpar boats and Mastercraft feels bad for us. We did it becuase our members got jealous that they couldn't get women like that on their boats. All the women know our boats are only good for a year or two and hey, who wants to ride a man..uh I mean boat that goes flat after a year or two? We also joined forces with our best friends over at Moomba because.... well........ you know, their boats just really suck. We hope you'll understand why we did it, you probably dont' know how it is being second rate but we felt the need to react.

Signed,

Dr. Jim Michaels

Maybe some good summer pictures of family and friends enjoying our MC’s on the water will appear in other threads throughout the summer.

kalanic
03-29-2006, 05:26 PM
Dont think there is going to be one. Nothin to say about. Bottom line is wont be tolerated, we knew it, all surprised how long it lasted. TMC was good enough to let it go for as long as it did. Hats off to them for that. This is a respectful site used by boating enthusiast that strive for excellence. Looking at bikini's obviously has no bearing when it comes to this web site. The message is clear.

TMC

No official annoucement from TMC?

The announcement is simple - when you couple the several emails / private messages we received with the company values we work so hard to uphold, it was clear we needed to take action regarding images that were blatantly over the line or very close in some threads.

Please be clear, we do not have an issue with modest, swimsuit pictures of families, wives, girlfriends on MC's or on vacation. The difference began when guys started grabbing images that were on other websites or posting inappropriate images. As mentioned, it causes some looming issues like a) is this what MasterCraft is about? b) could we be held liable for having copyrighted material on our site c) what if a co-worker sees you flipping through pages,sees an immodest image and decides to make trouble (remember, its their definition of feeling uncomfortable not yours)

As observed, I spent much time going through every single page and soon realized it is ridiculous. You all know the guidelines you agreed to and I should not have to police it.

Now as for the future - here is how it is going to roll. You will first begin to see a handful of selected moderators come to the scene. Provided they don't have to do a whole lot of moderating, we will all be fine and dandy. However, if they find themselves having to enforce a lot of common sense rules, we will have another issue on our hands.

Bottom line is there are all sorts of things we could do to really inhibit this site - moderate posts, moderate attachments, moderate galleries, etc. But contrary to popular belief, we don't want to do that because we don't want to kill this site - we really make an effort to stay hands off. So that puts the ball in your court - no one (including us) wants MC to heavily moderate this site so all of you help monitor TT so it remains an invaluable resource for years to come.

This is the post nazi signing off - thanks!

I pushed it I agree. Thanks for the second chance and the site. However had the site disappeared (or I been banned) my days would be much longer, my other half would be happier, the trash would get taken out, dishes washed, (I have kids?) dog walked, garbage disposal fixed, toilet unclogged and pretty much as I see it life would stink! :o

Had the thread remained in the spirit in which it was started, and most of us wanted, we would not have had a problem. It fell victim to a classic case of one upmanship. Those who did not have swimsuit pics of their significant other/s felt the need to grab a pic from wicked weasel and post it. Others felt that their pic of their girlfriend or wife would have either gotten them into the dog house or were not as proud as they should be of their lady and felt they needed to participate. Or, I found a thong over here look at it. We all know there is a venue for that type of thing and it is known as "the list". Now I am one who didn't mind the bootleg pics, as it saved me a click or two and I probably wouldn't have gone looking for myself.


Now as for the future - here is how it is going to roll. You will first begin to see a handful of selected moderators come to the scene. Provided they don't have to do a whole lot of moderating, we will all be fine and dandy.

How do I sign up for this job and how much does it pay?

About 30 some odd pages before the end, there was a long post from TMC setting out what basically could not be posted on there. Since then, there were a lot of posts that basically ignored that. But no, technically, we did not get the "pretty please with sugar on it cut it out" request.

As far as I know, this does not have any effect on my Cinemax subscription. :rolleyes:

I did not get an e-mail of any pending action of MC TTAdmin. The TTadmin post and the apparent e-mails [another thread] being sent, do make me realize this site is a priviledge, not a right and I will think twice before I put my use of this sight in jeopardy in my future Threads/Posts.

I don't know, but the Museum may have a dark smelly room in the back with $5.00 video machines for those who miss the locked threads and insist on seeing them just one more time. But, they instead, could just donate the money to Spencer's Puppy and come to the Museum to see what MC has been and is really all about, buy some 303, Meguires wax, Star Brite Teak Oil Sealer/Preserver in the White Bottle, decals, a couple T-shirts and an MC towel or two! :D JMO
