The Charter of this Newsgroup Date: Tue, 16 Feb This newsgroup is for the posting of artwork and other miscellaneous binaries made with and relating to Poser, a 3d graphics program made by the fine folks at MetaCreations. This Usenet Newsgroup needs no little Hitler shouting what folks can or can't do.
This forum is a Virtual Biker Bar for artists. If you want to start a fight, go ahead. If you want to post a 10 meg binary, party on. You can bitch, moan, and flame, you can attack each other, fall in love, have babies, do whatever the hell you want.
How can a newsgroup survive in an environment of pure anarchy, you may ask? In Dodge City, you lived by your wits and the quickness of your gun. You can bitch all you want to about them, but don't be surprised if you get killfiled right along with your enemy. Maybe you LIKE arrogant, pushy, rude, jerks and if that's the case you can killfile everyone else. If there is one thing I have learned from Usenet it is this; "No matter what you do, you're going to piss somebody off" Be prepared for this.
Someone IS going to complain if you post a "Lewd" pic. Face it, America's up to its' tightly puckered sphincter with puritanical prudes, and at least one of them WILL get in your face. For those who are uptight and easily perturbed, I have a word; Erleichda.
Don't get your panties in a bunch. Feel free to argue with them if you absolutely can't control your urges. I personally find flame wars entertaining as all get-out. If you don't find them entertaining, then killfile all the parties involved. Let it be your guide! If you don't have the ability to killfile, ask someone for advice. If for some reason you are unable to killfile, you'll just have to deal with it. You can just enjoy the ride, or take a hike.
A simple enough solution to the lack of a killfile is a bit of common sense Post whatever pics you please. If your picture is of a cute little girl picking flowers, more power to you. If you want to post pictures of Spaceship battles, go to it. And if you want to post a pic of a Poser chick performing a lewd sex act on a pony, feel free to do so.
There is no such thing as an inappropriate picture here, there will be no censorship. In the Middle Ages, puritan religious fanatics irreparably marred great works of art, painting over the genitals of classic paintings in the name of decency.
The Middle Ages ended a long time ago. Don't drag its' corpse in here. It began to stink long ago. How do we protect the children from seeing these images? Now some of you are no doubt thinking, "This seems a bit extreme, doesn't it? You can advertise your Website so we can go there and harvest the bountiful offerings therein. This charter is not intended to endorse or encourage rude behavior.
But we know that's not going to happen. This is a community, and in any community there is bound to be conflict. This is the Wild Frontier. Welcome to the Usenet Free Zone. The Charter of a.
