Thumbs down Jankovic caption thread

Posted by me in GM last night – where did it go?

I’d like to believe you could differentiate between a voyeuristic upskirt, captured surreptitiously, versus one performed by JJ deliberately and treated by all concerned as a joke. But no...

Any chance, when a thread is removed for no obvious reason, that the mod concerned posts an explanation? Maybe not, because that would lead to mod accountability, and we can’t be having that.

Re: Jankovic caption thread

Didnt check, though most likely it got moved to the "Captions" thread.

I did check, but couldn't find it there. Besides, it's dissapered from my post count/log, so almost certainly deleted

Re: Jankovic caption thread

Well opening a thread with the clear purpose of provoking people, especially when the picture had already been posted is against the rules. Therefore it was moved out.

Re: Jankovic caption thread

‘clear purpose of provoking people’?? Provoking negatively? I’ve not got Scooby what you’re on about, Yasmine.

How is posting a funny photo in a caption thread, of Jelena intentionally pulling a funny pose, intended to purposefully provoke negativity? Did Jelena provoke anything but a fun response when she pulled that pose? No. Was Jelena accused of having a ‘clear purpose of provoking people’ negatively, with that pose? No. Everyone is laughing along with her. So why is that laughter replaced by this accusation: ‘clear purpose of provoking people’ (negatively), when I post the photo? No provocative words from me, no negativity, just the photo posted.

A saucy pose, maybe, but entirely intentional by Jelena. Here’s another caption thread with an intentional upskirt –photo is dead, but it was the same photo as used here. Thread/s not deleted, photo used more than once, and no accusations of ‘clear purpose of provoking people’.

Some trigger happy mod needs to get a SOH.

Well whether you agree or not, it was moved out and no trigger happy mod is planning to bring it back.

Re: Jankovic caption thread

It wasn't only the nature of the picture, it was also the fact that the thread was getting ugly. The replies in the thread proved its provocative character.
So, it'll stay where it is.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing
