Should be required

Ebay are missing a trick here. If they required all their auctions to feature at least one shot of a buxom beauty holding the item being sold they could do several things:

* Eliminate "image is representative only" pictures that look nothing like the product being sold

* Increase traffic

* Increase sales

* Piss off just about everyone in the "moral majority" (both left and right)

* ???

* profit!

Not necessarily. It might create a new market, though, for 'representative' photos that include a buxom beauty. However...

> * Piss off just about everyone in the "moral majority" (both left and right)

That's reason enough for your idea to get the thumbs up from me.

Re: Butt....

> .....Does the Booty Come With The Bonnet(y)???

The seller does write "bonnet is in perfect condition, as in(sic) the stand that holds it !", and buyer protection does apply if it doesn't come as described (ooer) ;)

// Rated "Oh! Orgasmic" because ... well, it feels rude not to.

NSFW!!!

I know the clue was in the title - but you should have included NSFW in there!!

That said, it's one hell of a strategy.

"NSFW" outdated

It is time to retire the whole concept of "NSFW" tags. It was originally adopted because people often had internet access while in their employer's offices but not at home. The situation has now reversed, with more people likely to have routine and customary internet access at home than at their place of work. We're now in a circumstance where the rules can be much simpler: if the site you're visiting is related to doing your work, there should be no one that can legitimately criticize the content. If the site is NOT related to doing your work, then visit it FROM HOME, and you deserve whatever you see. There is no such thing as "job-related but inappropriate" content that needs must be hidden from coworkers.

Re: "NSFW" outdated

Er, this doesn't convince me. I would think a semi-naked woman is still NS for most people's W and they appreciate the warning.

No, NSFW should stay.

Agreed- some HR droids have absolutely zero sense of humor, and will cheerfully accept resignations of people they catch with even moderate amounts of flesh tones emanating from their monitors.

I get away with it because I'm the nanny filter admin and I can pull the "I'm performing an investigation" card. :D

NSFW outdated, NSFH tags instead.

I mean, as a right upstanding employee you wouldn't need them, would you?

But as a conscientous father and/or* mother of the house, what'll the CPA -think if- do when the little monsters rat on you, hm?

* Both also seems to be an option for some.

Keep the warning, please

I'm fortunate enough to spend less time at my employer's premises than I do in my home office. But that only means that in the former location I need to be wary of my boss's location and in the latter my wife's. So, please keep the NSFW warning tags!

NSFW

Any chances of multiple levels of this? Like NSFW for slighly risque, VNSFW for more dodgy, up to VFNSFW for unexpectedly large quantities of exposed flesh.

I for one welcome our carbon-bonnet-wielding overladies...

Just Like a Lot of Other Advertising

The images aren't indecent, and a lot of other advertising involves pretty girls, often half-naked. So eBay has no reason to act, unlike in the case of flashers. Unless, of course, including extraneous promotional content in images is only permitted for paying advertisers.

Short treatise on God, Man, and his wellbeing

I did a short gig at an engineering (wireless) company recently, and took over the desk of an early-20s female who'd just moved on. There were, I think, only 4 or 5 women (out of ~100) in this company, and all the rest were secretaries and HR. It soon turned out that one of her hobbies had been YouPorn, in an open-plan office, on her company computer. Everyone in my group knew about it; even IT knew about it. Nobody cared, but none of the guys would have done it themselves. She was, needless to say, very popular.
