    I bet i know why - bloody idiots posting images that shouldnt be posted and bad language :shadedshu

    I cant believe it! I really enjoyed the images most put up on that thread :(

    "thank p4-630"
    He was posting a lot of objectionable material... multiple regular users warned him to back off becase we didn't want the thread closed. One example was some chick flashing her tits in public or something.

    me too, that thread was like a religion to me. I visited it every day :(

    I think it might have been the emo pics though :confused:

    It's all come as a bit of a shock to me and I think I'll need to contact my therapist to get through this *SNIFF SNIFF*

    ^ Ah I see, could those be edited, removed then re-open the epic thread? That's the only reason for me to go to GN just to see funny/amazing/crazy pics from Trip and others, although wasn't expecting some posts that were offensive etc... *this was my daily habit, check Crazy pic thread* now it's gone :(
    pepsi71ocean and 7pU~m0m say thanks.

    It wont be re-opened. The mods did warn several users about content, most ignored them and got a thread locked that i, like oli, visited everyday. Selfish people.

    Should me start a new one? call it the crazy picture thread re-birth? haha. There would be no way to moderate it ourselves though.

    If you did that, it would be locked as well. The same thing happened with the hot chicks thread, someone made a new one and then a mod came by and locked it almost immediately.

    I believe it was P4's post a few pages back on emos. He had a few pictures that were pretty graphical. What I believe to be the offending picture has been removed.

    I really hate to say this, but...

    Last post!
