Apology for the pic post..(17 posts)

Apology for the pic post..Made in Taiwan
Aug 15, 2001 9:56 AM
I must apology to everyone on this board for posting such a disgusting picture. First of all, it was not my intension to post that picture, i have too much respect for the people of that read this board and the content of this board to do something that idiotic. I originally posted a pic of special Olympics... with the caption that reads "Arguing on the internet is like the special olympics, even if you win, you're still retarded". Since there was a lot of senseless arguing going on on this board..... that's why i decided to post the special olympic pic (some of you might even think that the special olympic picture was offensive or insensitive, but it was no where near the shock value of the enema pic)

Instead of loading the pic i wanted to post to a web server (websho or geocity) i posted the url for the image, unbeknownst to me, i guess they rotate the picture or something, and the same url pointed to that disgusting pic instead. Honest, i wasn't trying to post that pic!!! but it's too late now, so, if you saw that picture, i'm sorry you have to see it, but it was not my intension to do that here (there are other places for those type of picture, not that i'm into that type of stuff, but i have seen that type of stuff before).

so once again, i apologize.
I'll vouch for himmike mcmahon

As I said yesterday, I looked at the picture in the early morning (west coast time) and it was a picture of a kid running in the Special Olympics. My guess is that the source of this picture somehow set it up to switch to the disgusting picture that replaced it later, knowing that people would post the Special Olympics photo on boards like this.
Hey Gregg and M.i.T.PaulCL

M.i.T. ...truly disgusting photo, but not your fault. Your apology is accepted. From your history on this board, we all know it was an accident not of your making. Helped me on my diet since I had no interest in eating after seeing that one. whoa! Looks like something off rotten.com

Gregg...seriously, do you think RBR jersies will be produced in the near future?? Its' been discussed for quite a while. If my "handle" can be put on the jersey, then, I have to change it to something more interesting than my initials. How about a handle named after my frame.."biTitan"...maybe not...the 'bi' part has bad connotations. Now I have to find a new handle....
can you post the pic againishmael

I know that you should "forgive your enemas", but that was absolutely disgusting!!!
I can sympathize ...Humma Hah

... a couple of weeks ago I was using a search engine to look for a scientific instrument. One of the hits took me to a URL that looked quite legit, based on a company name I'd been looking for. But the site was commercial porn, one of that infamous web associated with Kara's Playground. That mess is rigged so that attempting to "go back" to from whence you came just forwards you to another in the net. The only way out is to break the connection.

and some people say that I'M crude and nasty!!!!
That pic was so vile, i nearly blew chunks in my cubicle!!! After that I couldn't even eat!!! What was that person using for an enema? A POWER WASHER??? A FIRE PLUG??? Good lord, that was the NASTIEST pic I've ever seen!!!
(BTW, just WHERE did you get that pic??)
Appreciate you taking the time....Len J

to apologize. I have to admit it did disgust me. And I was surprised, based on some of your other posts, that you would post it. I am glad that it was an error.

Takes a lot to shake this old guy, that photo did. Perhaps the expectation of somthing else. No offense meant none taken.

I have it on my geocities' space.

i'm not gonna post the pic but i'll post the url

www.geocities.com/wagnerite51/retarded.jpg

you might have to cut and paste it on your browser, i assure you that it's a PG rated picture, not a XXX rated
that pic is pretty insensitiveCygnus

i didn't see the xxx pic, but i don't find much humor in this one. think about this kid's life, or the challenge for his parents and family. i usually have a sense of humor about most things. wonder which pic is really more offensive?

Hey GREGG, if you do get to make some RBR jerseys, how can I get one for myself? I live way over here in the Philippines. I'm sure Made in Taiwan would be interested in knowing too (if he is from Taiwan).

No hard feelings. I have to admit that when I saw the picture with your name attached I was a little surprised. I never would have figured you to post that, but the change in URL makes sense. Wow though, what a vile picture. I had a salad that night at dinner I couldn't finish because the color of the dressing....well

FWIW- I liked the picture you meant to post. The flame wars are getting old.

insensitive....whatelse is in your compishmael

previously i wrote that i dont think you should apologize for anything on this board.. but now that all the un-pc people are coming out of the wood work and saying the pic was funny i dont feel obligated as the sole un-pc-er to defend you anymore, infact now it seems there are not enough pc responses so i now recant and feel you should appologize for the special olympics post..its so insensitive ..the other picture moved me though, it was true art,who said art had to be nice..it moved me to philosophical inquirey as to why humans have such revolsion for some things..we all have these feeling, love hate and revolsion...is it a self preservation mechanism, avoid things that gross because they contain disease.. did our earlier gross ancestors die out and we are the disgusted luck ones
