Can we swear here? Can we put up a violent picture here, like say a stick man shooting another one in the head and the other one falls and blood splatters from his head?

I know what you refer to, and you know that my name is listed as the Mod who removed that violent graphic. Not normally one to peruse that forum, I was asked to do it because some of your fellow teen members found it objectionable....too graphic a depiction of a violent act. Thus it was removed.

Our guidelines are simple... If you're wondering if something is appropriate, consider whether it could be comfortably viewed by a young child.  Violence is NOT child-friendly, is it??

No, violence isn't child-friendly but my question to you is, do you see any children here in PIP?

I've only a few things to say, just as a member of Passions:

Why on earth does someone wants to share swears and violent pictures?

I certainly wouldn't enjoy to read and see them.

A rose is a rose is a rose...I guess...
Feel free to use the pictures on my website. http://communities.msn.com/Titiasplace/

If you desire "shock" value I suggest increasing your vocabulary, in that way you will present your view in a way that is palatable and tasteful. Television, which I'd bet most posters here abhor, has enough graphic evil and vulgarity for the tastes of even the most dedicated "dark" fan. Please spare me the freedom of speech argument. What passes for freedom in this country (and most european) was paid for with plenty of graphic violence. Just my humble opinion.
