Hey guys....

I am not trying to get into an argument with anyone.... :) ( PA)

But have you guys seen the new Sig by " PA" .... :( ..... I do not know him very well. But I was extremely surprised by his Sig... Not sure if it is allowed....? And if it is....? I don’t think that what he has done is Kosher in anyway..... Many peeps have issues with certain players in the WW community .. But to purposely attack the game is just ignorant ..... :uhm:

Peace............... VONNER

It is as simple as a page in a Magazine. It advertises that he thinks the game is ********* ... Like I said I do not want an argument.. I think it is simple ignorance... I was a little amazed .. I have had several post's/Thread discussions with him.... I thought better of him.... Attack or maybe insult the person/player he may have a problem with … But the WW …. :confused:

Peace………… VONNER

It could be seen as pi**ing on the on the wild west, i can see it like that, but i also just see a dog pi**ing on 2 letters of the alphabet.

aren't you reading a bit too much into the picture? it's the lawless west and it's symbolised by a dog relieving itself on 'the established'. i think you are too easily offended. on the other hand, if PA comes by and say that he's pissing on all of us, i'll be wrong and leave this thread in disgrace ;)

well here's hew's interpretation:

Hewster the almighty :Dmmm Metaphorical.. "expressing one thing in terms normally denoting another"

ok, err, a dog wees' on something to mark it as his.. he wishes to take ownership of it, although in essence he is only owning it until a bigger dog with smellier wee pees on it... But what does the robot dog represent in this sig ??? : Games with modern / futuristic technology depicted them ? such as DOOM3, QUAKE III, Half-Life, U-T ?

If the above is correct, then PA's sig is saying that games that contain modern or futuristic content wish to own WW... mmm interesting, and in this sense I do not find it offensive :)

However, I can understand that at first glance it seems to mean PA wishes to pee on the mod, but this would only make sense if PA saw himself as a robotic dog, and that we presume the act of weeing is meant as an act of hate.

Or do I just read too much into things lol

Hewster

Also, We are a 'wild bunch' and I'm not into censorship. As long as the gang isn't too unruly then we usually let folks be. Besides, Art is art.

LOL - OK that's playing more naive then even I play. :) Let's call a dog a dog. Pa's avatar shows a dog taking a wiz on the WildWest. Whoever created it actually did a pretty good job. There's even a shadow on the robo Dog/Cougar. Kudos if you did it yourself Pa! Why does he want want such a thing? uhhh Well, it's sure not my style.:rolleyes: Is that a declaration of why he sticks around the forums? errr I don't know. That was my first read but then again I was talking to him about his status of "WTF am I still doing here?" when he first put the sig on. So, I probably read it wrong...:lookaround: Is it rude? Sure, it is! Like spitting on the floor right beside the spitoon...:mad: Could it be a test to see if we want to suppress it? Hmmmm, a conspiracy theory!:uhm: Is it drawing attention? You bet ya!:nodding: In any case, as I said the artwork is pretty good. And I don't see any reason at all why we would remove it for him. If it does offend you ("you" meaning whoever is reading this)personally, you could talk to him about it offline for via PM. But Please no flaming. Especially as he hasn't commented on it himself yet!

First of allll ... Sheesh.... I didn’t think I would get a negative or aggressive response from so many.... Am I offended....? NO..... Did I say that I was appalled by it..... NO...... I stated twice that I didn’t want an argument.... :confused:

Apparently others have already seen the Sig. I hadn’t ...I ran across it today... Hewster made a good point... :rolleyes: I was simply bringing it to the attention of us all.. Art is Art .... true.... :uhm: But a picture depicting an act of a dog pissing on the two letters that Represent the WW mod to me seems to say something more then .. Look I am a Dog and I can lift my leg and piss on you all because I own you..... :uhm: ...I guess I will just keep to myself and STFU...

1. I didn’t attack PA in anyway.. So how can I be Flaming anyone

2. I just thought it was something I would bring to the attention of the WW Bunch

3. I never asked to have it removed. I asked was it allowed.

Don't worry Vonner, I don't think the replies were specifically directed at you. I know mine wasn't. I was just covering all the bases and talking to the community as a whole. Truth be told ya brought up a subject that people have a lot of thoughts about. So, you're gonna get loads of replies with everyone voicing an opinion. And I sure didn't think you were flaming Pa. You didn't even come close. I just didn't want anyone to take my comment of "Send him a PM if you're concerned" as code for... well... whatever it could have been construed as... Cheers! [EDITEDBY="ME!"] Ah - I see the problem... The "you" in the last paragraph was not meant as "You, Vonner," but as "You, whoever is reading this,". Sorry 'bout that. I should have clarified that when I wrote it. It's gotten me in trouble before. I've fixed it now... Sorry for the confusion... [/EDITEDBY]
