"Seeing Things You Didn't Ask For"My biggest pet peeve has been recently discovered. I have found that this one bothers me more than any I have ever had, or noticed. I love the internet, and Social Networking Sites, especially EP. I don't appreciate however, having people fan me that have nude pics for avatars, or post their stories in groups where they don't belong. If it's adult oriented, keep it over on that side, don't post it in some group where people have no choice to see it. YOU might think your junk is 'ALL THAT" I can assure you however, not everyone does. If you do it for shock value, you are wasting your time. After a short time on the internet, and sometimes just living life, takes the ability to be shocked completely away from you. find it sad that someone could be so desperate to get a bit of attention, that they would have to post a nude pic of them selves to any response from people, and even sadder that it doesn't seem to matter rather that response be positive (not likely) or negative. Personally, I can not imagine hoe any one could post a picture of them self on the internet in such a manner. Maybe I am a little old fashioned, but that photo can come back in life to haunt you someday. Maybe you get a nice respectable job as a teacher, a manager, a principle, a coach, it could be one of many, the point is if you posted that while you were in college, you will regret it when you are publicly humiliated. Everyone loses respect for you and you likely, lose your job.
I just can not stand to have a nude avatar shoved in my face. I definitely won't be befriending anyone who has an avatar like this, nor do I accept any one with all sex groups, no stories, or just a blue avatar. I am an easy going person, but I have standards. anyone who knows me on here, knows what kind of person i am, and that I have ethics and values. The other thing they know, and what counts, is that i take my friendships seriously, and I try to be kind and fair to all. Sometimes, that is difficult at best, when you have nothing to read on a profile, you have no idea who you may be letting into your life. It's that simple. When I see those avatars, that tells me all I need to know.
