Was the original picture of Carrie Fisher that offensive? You can find more skin in the JC Penny catalog....

Guaranteed that the link below from Chargers.com has FAR more skin and cleavage than the picture originally posted.

Stop making sense, that sort of thing is very frowned upon in the dictatorship known as CMBistan.

Darn, I thought this was the show some respect to a lady whom passed away and was an icon for a time - not the who can show the most skin pics and whine thread...

You're kidding, right? The picture posted by the OP was FROM the movie that made her famous.

This has nothing to do with the picture. It has to do with the fact that zero moderation was required on the original post. It was far from disrespectful to Carrie Fisher, her career or her memory. It's classic CMB micromanagement.

If only there were people in the Chargers organization who held such high standards when it came to the business and football operations.

No, I'm not - and you seem to completely miss the point being made as a result of your vision being obscured by relatively insignificant minutia Kiwi.

I didn't see the original pic. Doesn't really matter what it was.

My point was you've decided to take a thread that was started to show respect to someone whom has passed away and possibly even discuss her contribution(s) in a positive light and turn it into your rail against the machine, knowing that if you had an issue with moderation, there is a thread dedicated for such discussions...

Of course, I'm sure if the person was your wife, you would react the same way given the same conditions and not contemplate that the person of your initial ire might have been trying to keep it respectful and be fine with someone posting a pic pandering to ones baser instincts.

BTW - in 5 minutes or so the entire discussion will be moved to the appropriate place. Feel free to complain about that too.

Silly..... if you and CT don't understand after all the years and hundreds (if not thousands) of complaints about over moderation, then I don't know what to tell you.

The changing of the picture was insignificant.... but insignificant things add up, don't they? The picture was changed, even though it broke no forum rules and even though the banner at the top of the forum has a link for the Chargers girls that has FAR more skin on display.

It was completely unnecessary moderation. If the picture selected originally didn't break any rules, WHY was it changed?

Feel free to move all of this to the moderation thread. I could care less. Infract me, ban me.... whatever. I'll just be another poster who has been a member for 13+ years who doesn't come around anymore. This forum mirrors the team. Steady decline and questionable decisions by those responsible for making said decisions.

Kiwi, if you don't understand that there is an appropriate time and place for everything and see nothing wrong with your choices in that regard, I don't know what to tell you either.

As I stated, my comments have nothing to do with the choice in regards to the pic...
