A few weeks ago there was a thread on this forum in which some of our users mentioned they'd like to be allowed to discuss adult-oriented topics on this forum.

We (the moderators, actually three of the four of us, who in spite of apparences are still active) took the issue seriously and discussed the advantages and disadvantages of letting less "family friendly" topics take place on this forum. Mark (this site's owner) also took part in the discussion and we were glad he did since we wouldn't want to go against the opinion of the person who made (and still makes) this place possible.

We went from discussing some of our past decisions to trying to foresee what could happen if there were not limits. Ultimately it was very hard to agree on a precise line that we didn't want to cross as the potential topics and situations are limitless, but overall we felt we weren't comfortable with what could completely denature Astroboy.

So, we felt we could be a bit more lenient than we had been in the past (for example, some jokes in the Photoshop or Caption the picture games that were on the suggestive side would be okay), but having a discussion in which Astro would be engaged in sexual activity (in picture or in words) is so far from Astro's character that we felt it didn't suit this forum.

So, overall, no major changes have been made to the rule, just a bit of a less restrictive interpretation over the course of a regular discussion. We know this won't please everybody but we still wanted to let you know that we did take time to take this issue in consideration and see if it a change was suitable.

*Bangs head against wall*

You guys just don't understand... I didn't want to discuss Astro doing dirty deeds...

Just shounen-ai. Non-sexual images of guys who, ahem, like other guys.
And if no one has any qualms about the idea of Astro getting together with a freakin' thirty-year-old woman, even starting topics dedicated to the subject, why couldn't he kiss or hug another boy his own age?

Ugh... Just forget it. Forget it altogether.
I don't care anymore.

I was referring to Brianna, some thirty-year-old chick that Astro falls for and for some odd reason some people around here actually like as a match for him.



...Y'know, it's nasty, but even that's not as freaky as people who think Black Jack should get it on with bitty Pinoko. *retches*

Brianna is definately not even an adult. The Space camp episode from the '03 series had some adults, but Brianna was not one of them. She was a high school student. In the image above, she is comforting a sick child.

I will lock this thread if you keep pestering us about this. I already told you of a forum that would probably welcome such content, but you insited on putting it here anyway. I really do not want to talk about this anymore. The matter is settled. If Daichi wants to post pervy pics, do it on some other forum. :mad: Although I was against it, I graciously submitted your idea to the other mods, & both they & Mark rejected it. I took the chance that they might accept your idea, but they did not. The matter is settled.

Dude, I already said I didn't care any more.
I was just clarifying that I did not want to post pervy pictures! Don't accuse me of wanting to post porny stuff when I totally didn't! To accuse me like that wouldn't be fair at all.

Also, Brianna is creepy no matter how old she is. She's still way too old for him. XD

BTW I tried to give a general example... I didn't mean that this was what you wanted to do.

Well it seemed like you and Jeff were accusing me of attempting to post porn.
I guess you could say that it hurt my feelings? *shrug*
