    And here's why:

    It's inexplicable why a mac rumors site chooses despite mine, and others, numerous complains about it to allow a person here to sport a nick of a gay porn star, a disreputable drug addict and self confessed sex maniac, namely Aiden Shaw (with the forum's nickname being AidenShaw).

    The same forum member is also allowed to sport a signature about gay marriage, and a link too, to some propagandising site about it.

    What is more, this guy seems to be registered here from 2003. He 's always obnoxious and loud, and with a very vocal pro microsoft attitude and seems to be immune to any criticism left right and center, whilst macrumors is quick to spread bans left right and center, as I am sure all of you mature posters here know, for things that in other forums go unnoticed.

    But somehow they got all the patience in the world for a gay porn star nick name...it seems american teenagers worldwide will have to be subjected to Aiden Shaw and his sly sexual politics up until at least 2013.


    Can someone here explain to me how come I ve not seen any JennaJameson nicks around but I have to suffer through a gay porn star nick? Can someone explain to me how on earth signatures are places to link about gay issues?

    I got nothing against gay people, I love em, my best pals are gay, but they dont go in forums with teenagers sporting porn star nicks and signatures about gay marriage. They have some class and respect unlike said forum member and, evidently, the moderators here.

    All said and done, and being a poster from Appleinsider who recently crossed over here, I wont be visiting these forums much or participating in such a spirit. Forgive me but I am the Jenna Jameson six pack of beers kind of slob and find male intercourse references in nick names and sigs in very, very bad taste.

    That said because there are a lot of vulnerable adolescents here I felt I had to put my point across from the sake of protecting them from the sly sexual predatory behaviour of adults.

    Have your eyes and ears open boys and gals because some people here while say seemingly making an "argument" about windows 7 might actually be promoting their sexual lifestyle in subtle and not so subtle ways.

    Now roast me all you want, ban me, whatever, it's a sad state of affairs that the forums are in moderating-wise with such a showcase of tactlessness, so no amount of negative response will surprise me. On the contrary I expect it.:cool:

    I for that matter won't even bother replying here. I said what I had to say fair and square, so anyone can come here and distort my views and convince us how great it is to have gay porn stars for nicks and sexual politics, gay again, for signatures. :apple:

    lovely. I pdfd this one just in case Lee doesn't get here before it gets deleted.

    So heterosexual porn is okay, gay porn is distasteful.

    I'm a straight male, what am I supposed to be afraid of again?

    Lastly, you have the right idea; if it's a problem, go back to the other forum or grow up.

    Respond while this is up. I want to understand what I am supposed to be afraid of.

    Also, what is wrong with being gay?

    Wow. Get over it.
    Lets ban anti-microsoft for all those people who like Microsoft. It's unacceptable that someone should be able to be known as whatever they like, and have their own opinons. Making their views publicly known is just out of the question. :rolleyes:

    Be nice.

    dejo, his (or her) friends have class and respect and drink a six pack while watching Jenna Jameson together.

    BTW, you mentioning her has exposed me to things that are inappropriate for childish self.

    Does not trouble me in the least

    Whenever I feel myself wavering, I simply think of Eliza Dushku. Seriously, homophobia, racism's cousin, is banal and stupid.

    This forum is run with incredible professionalism as far as I am concerned. Go to some other forums when there is profanity all over the place, makes things so much nicer here that we don't have that and words like "retard" thrown at every single post.

    Aiden Shaw... I thought he was just some dude who posts on MR. Seriously!

    So thanks for opening up my youthful eyes to the wonders of gay porn.

    Seriously, if you're trying to keep a person from being exposed to any form of gay porn (and since you're not a homophobe, I can only assume you mean any type of porn, meaning porn in general), I would suggest not being online where a pop-up could easily scare youthful eyes.

    P.S. So what if someone's pro MS. I'm very pro-MS right now. I feel that apple is making some very bad choices, and Microsoft is really stepping up their game. I understand that's not the norm around here, but IDC. I come here to express my opinion, and I thank you for expressing yours.

    I've posted here for a little while and I have yet to turn gay. In fact I don't even notice anything you are alluding to in your post. I also didn't know any gay porn stars before either.

    Truthful, I am so confused about what is going on in this thread. As a strait guy I'm not afraid to say gay people are fun. Its fun to go to the member's pics thread and watch how they take over talking about how cute some guy is and requesting more pics.

    The OP post made me laugh so much. So what if he has the name of a gay porn star? It could well be his real name? And if its not then what does it matter. A juvenile would not know without some prior knowledge that AidenShaw is a gay porn star, suggesting that they already know about gay porn and porn in general.

    What age do you have to be to register here? 12 I think. I certainly was not that impressionable at that age.

    This forum is one of the best run I have ever visited, generally posts are informative and knowledgeable.

    I'm wondering how the OP knows the name in question belongs to a gay porno star?

    While I often don't agree with what AidenShaw has to say, I do like having him around.

    AidenShaw has a wonderful ability to give fanboys a reality check, and helps keep this site from becoming too pro-apple (one-sided etc.)

    I caught Teh Ghey™ but it vanished as soon as I left this forum.

    Seriously, what a load of crap.

    "Gay Friendly," "Straight Friendly," I think this place is generally just "Friendly."

    Until of course all the intolerant folk decide to pop in and play "Let's see how intolerant and ignorant I can be."

    How does the OP know so much about Aiden Shaw? I think we should be told.

    This thread brought to you today by the letters: W, T & F

    Aiden Shaw was also the name of a character (a straight one too!) in Sex and the City. So much for the importance of a name. If the username itself is not excessively rude, I don't see why you should get so excited about it. Maybe something is bothering you about it. Anything you need to tell us?

    If people could be banned for their social habits and over things we merely disagree with, there wouldn't be many members left. If someone breaks the rules enough times, they get banned.

    I suggest you find something else to worry about.

    Just to fix his problems with this site;
    Are we allowed to register a name of a porn actor/actress?
    Are we allowed to have links to anti-gay marriage sites in our sigs?
    I know we're not forced into liking Apple so that clears that one up.

    Is that it?

    FFS. For all we know AidenShaw's real name is (shock, horror!!) Aiden Shaw. He's been using that moniker for nearly a decade as far as I know, since he and I used to cross paths occasionally on the MacCentral messageboards before MR even started.

    BTW, may I take this opportunity to apologise to the dairy intolerant for my forum name? Just in case it offends, you know? :rolleyes:

    I'm so confused I can't even see straight. No pun intended of course, but what is going on here? Windows 7 has a pro-gay agenda? Aiden Shaw is a porn star? Am I even on the same planet? The OP doesn't make any sense.
