Im bored so I thought I would start a thread to appreciate the beautiful Maria Sharapova.

I have my PMG5 set up to randomly select one of the following images every 5 minutes. Needless to say, I dont get much work done. :D

Everytime the picture changes is it accompanied by a loud grunt/moan/scream?

Because then I'd get zero work done. Man she makes a noise playing tennis.

When I saw this thread I thought it was about that braindead chick who people were fighting to keep her on life support. Who was that?

Geez, can't you link to a gallery somewhere instead of having hmm...12 posts in a row of images of her?
They're not in a row. I managed to sneak one in.

Hey Stu, Anna Kournikova was hotter....

No :D The thread is for posting pics. The ones Ive posted are all good for desktops too. Nice and big.

They are hosted at imageshack and its a bit confusing how it works. To me at least. Sorry if its spamming but it is a dedicated thread so i didnt think anyone would mind too much. Perhaps if it was a load of men you would probably feel differently :D

This assumes I'm straight. ;)

Honestly I haven't bothered to look or even click on any of the pics, its the sheer amount of them that I object to. Whenever I see 12 posts (or attempting to be 12 posts) in a row from one single poster my first thought is spam. And it looks like I'm not too far off...

Nope. If it was full of blokes the thread would not interest me :p

You don't think this thread is kinda sad at all and a touch pointless?

Im sorry you feel that way but it is a dedicated thread for posting pics. The fact that the pics are all in a row is irrelevant. If I had posted more 'slowly' and allowed Chundles more time to get a few more posts in between the pics it would not be seen as spam. :)

BARTELBY: Can it be seen as sad, sure, in some eyes. However I have offered over 100 desktop images on a certain subject so I think it might be spared the pointless monika. Just because you dont agree with the subject matter doesnt make something pointless or sad. I have offered something that hopefully some people will appreciate.

I don't care if you post a lot of links to pics, but please do so within a separate URL - i.e., post a link to a gallery, not dozens of thumbnails in multiple posts.

I now see that all but your first post has been removed.

Such a shame, that the moderators can't moderate the sections of the board where the real problems are!

How about removing terminal fanboyism or some of the other argumentative threads?

Pathetic.

Ok I will do in future but as I said they are hosted at imageshack and its not very clear on how to link to the 'gallery'. Maybe someone could enlighten me? :)

PS: Thanks for clearing up the posts. Appreciated as I seem to have stirred up a hornets nest :D PHEW!

Do you ever bother to report any of those threads so the moderators would see them? If they're a problem they'll be dealt with.

Actually, most of these threads I don't participate in, but many of the moderators do.

Fair enough, but even if you're not participating, you can still report a post you think is against the rules in some way. Even if a moderator has made a post in a thread, they may not have seen the exchange or posts you've seen, so if you report it they'll be made aware and can choose what to do.

As far as I know, "terminal fanboyism" and arguing isn't necessarily against the forum rules, though, so the mods might choose to let the discussion run if there aren't other facets to it, like personal insults or spam. Similarly, although I personally think this thread is a bit sad ;), the part that was actually against the form rules has been dealt with, i.e. the 27 posts in a row, and it's now free to roam. :p
