I have been reviewing photos again for the last couple days and I see this still being a problem.  Please read below.  This will be a final warning to all.


Hello PLovians,


I'll be direct about this subject.  Inappropriate comments on photos are not only degrading to YOU, the person in the photo, and PL; but they may consititute a TOU (www.policelink.com/terms) violation.


Recently I was browsing through the photos section and noticed some of these comments posted on a few photos in a young lady's album.  Her photos were appropriate for the website, but the comments below made me ashamed to be associated with the members who left them.  These PL members were both LEO and non-LEO.  I can give the non-LEOs a side to side shake of the head considering that non-LEOs are not held to the same standards as LEOs, but you LEOs who choose to leave comments such as "you are wanted" and "very sexy" on the photos of a woman need to rethink where you are coming from. 


LEOs, think.  Would you want your Chief, coworkers, wife, or children looking at what you wrote?  If you think it can't happen, then you are either naive or in the wrong field of work.


Back to the photos I saw these comments on...some may be thinking, "What's the big deal?" 


The photos were on the profile of a high school student who wishes to be a police officer one day.  As I stated, her photos were completely appropriate...it was the comments left behind by non-LEOs and LEOs alike on a HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT'S profile that were inappropriate.  This needs to stop. You may wish to research the profile of the person you're about to comment on before clicking that submit button.



Retleo says... (copied from page 5)


As an addendum to the "Comments" issue I would like to remind people that it is the pictures that are being posted that generate these lascivious comments.  Please, we do not need your bikini shots, butt shots, down-the-shirt boob shots or any other shots of that nature (Including the "muscle-shots" from the guys) that are a violation of site rules and TOU's. 


We can all be professional and also have some fun here at PL without the "Beefcake" and "T&A" pictures being posted all over the place.  There are other sites for that sort of thing so if that is all you are here for then pack up your pictures and head on over to MySpace or FaceBook or some similar site and knock yourself out!



BE WARNED: Continuing to make inappropriate comments on photos may lead to sanctioning or permanent removal of a member if found to constitute a TOU violation. 


Read and bump.  Thanks.

I myself have seen those comments and wondered WTH are they thinking. It makes me think those leaving that type of remark were hoping to make a connection. I think 1 warning to the offender and then kick em to the curb if it happens again. JMO.

If you have to ask if you made a comment then you probably did...think about what you do BEFORE you do it.

Bump. I have seen photo coments like these. I try to say something along the lines of "Goregous." I never say "Youre a hottie!" ro "Sexy woman." I try to be respectful. If I dont want to say something like that, I move on.


Thanks AZ.

Not only on the pics but on the Tributes too....I have had many "compliments", but I delete them as soon as I see them because it's kind of embarrassing...I wouldn't want anyone to get the wrong idea about me and those kinds of comments don't help! And the only pic of me you'll see is my avitar...this site is not about what I look like in a bikini or daisy dukes, I 'll leave that for My Space!!


Thanks again for bringing this back up AZ and a big ole B U M P!!!

We (myself and several other now "gone" members) dealt with this several months ago. We handled it one on one with the offenders and were told that maybe we were being to harsh on them! Go figure!

So if I ever get a burning desire to comment "Smokin!" on a picture posted I probably should refrain?


Just kidding I already know the answer, which is why I have not and will not.

I'm getting tired of getting the "I want you now" comments on my profile!


I understand wanting to leave such comments for me...but enough is enough!


 


 


 


No such thing happened, only in my head...


 


 


Bump btw!

My earlier posted I said if I had made any bad comments to let meknow ASAP. Well I will clarify y statment, I HAVE NOT MADE ANY DEGRADING OR OFF COLOR COMMENTS ABOUT A PL MEMBER ON HERE NOR WILL I, I have more respect for my profession and those I work with directly or indirectly and those that support us! I just wanted to make sure some statment to someone here or in a post taken the wrong way, and would like to make it right and if I'm wrong appologize!

Double BUMP!


I expect and I accept that I will be challenged, threatened or attacked. When I am, I will make it impossible for the suspect to be successful.
