    It's a sad commentary on our culture that violence is perfectly ok, but even simulated sexuality is made into a big deal.  Perhaps you all should take some time out of your day to think about that and let it sink in.

    I'd get into the theological and philosophical origins of all this, but I'm sure it would be lost on most of you.

    So.. Your saying because people spend money to go see something like boxing, it should also be fine for people to spend money on a prostitute, right?

    Two different things, two different debates. 

    Aeria games decided to sell sex, but mmorpg.com doesn't have to plaster it all over the site too.

    Trigger never mentions prostitutes so i dont know where you got that. Also dont most boxing matches and ufc type fights have half naked ring girls that walk around the ring inbetween rounds?

    You prudes are annoying

    Sad truth is that if noone here actually clicked on those adds, they would go away. Noone pays for adds that dont work...

    The /pruderage on this site is even more hilarious than the /nerdrage

    Please remove them?  Or maybe make a NSFW button?

     I work for the Gov't in IT as a Security Specialist... these do not breach any NSFW policies of any kind. I can put that add against a list of criteria that consents to what is NSFW. Now unless you work for some prude bible thumper than I pass along my condolences.

    MMORPG.com reminds me of the kids in Las Vegas who try to put cards in your hand. Cards of half-naked prostitutes hoping to get your business.

    They've actually been toned down from what they were a couple week's ago (as far as showing cleavage/skin).I've noticed 3 of the girls now have more clothing and/or covered up more.So it does look like this site did something about it.

    Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!

    MMORPG posters remind me of the prudes that come to Vegas and then complain about how sinful and full of vice the city is.

    I can't believe these threads are still popping up. Careful everyone, you'll be breaking the Camelot Unchained number of posts record at this rate.

    Get rid of these ads in three easy steps:

    1. Install Firefox.
    2. Install the AdBlockPlus extension.
    3. Add a custom filter for "http://images.mmorpg.com/images/*sb*.jpg";

    We've already worked with Aeria Games to "cover them up" a bit and tone them down. The remaining ads are going to stay as is, as far as I know. Going to lock this up now.
