Let me repeat what I said in your blog: "I find it...odd that the Giant Bomb staff would keep the thread up for days, but decide to close it today. It received more views than any other threads, and more posts than most threads. Isn't that proof enough, for this community driven website, that people want the thread open? I think the mods should reconsider their decision. I would prefer all of that stuff being kept in one."

It's the principle of it. I could to thousands if not millions of other websites to see the stuff.

Because it was clogging the forums.

Go to redtube if you want to see tits. This is a gaming site, not a Harlem. (Although it would make a damn nice one).

This is not a porn/semi naked picture website, this is a gaming website go to those many other websites if you want to see or discuss about those pictures. The principle is that and the right decision has been made to delete your thread.

But I liked the sexy thread, because you weren't looking at Porn, but you were still getting hard, if you understand my logic. It figures though....

If you want pictures of teh hot womenz go to Google, type something relating to half-nude women in the search bar (use your imagination), and hit enter.

This is a gaming forum though. I don't mind those threads myself, but we don't need them here.

Casey , it was a pathetic thread

Of course it was successful , look at your target audiance

Im sure if i went over to the nambla forums and posted some shops of the kid from home alone it would be a thousand page thread too

It's about holding Giant Bomb's community to a higher standard. That's it. Of course they aren't trying to shove their affinity for sexy ladies under a blanket, but they would like us to rise above the stereotypical forum filled with a bunch of dudes.

Wondered how long this would take....it got locked, you knew it would happen eventually. If you really need to look at semi naked women or things of that nature then google is your friend. Having a topic dedicated to semi naked women pulled a lot of time from the mods as we had to constantly go through each page of posts and pictures to make sure it was ok and clean.

Also the big guns aka Jeff, Ryan and other Staff felt such topics really didn't belong on a gaming website. So guys sorry but for the time being no more sexy lady topics or threads of similar nature on the forums. It might change in the future but don't hold me on that one.

What about threads with gaming women?

The rule could be "no shirt no service," so everyone could post pictures of their girlfriends and not have to worry about people asking her to sex it up.

a) Its not porn.
b) Its not a thread for posting tits and ass, its called sexy pitures, women are free to post their idea of a sexy pic too.
c) Im straight so i want it back.
d) Theres nothing perverted or dirty about telling someone what taste you have in the other sex, nobody looks at  these pics to whack off if they have the whole internet at their fingertips.

Hey, I'm not a spammer or abuser! It just confused me due to how long the thread stood up, but It isn't a huge deal. We'll survive.
