That's exactly what I recommend, Sarge, an intelligent and nonsensical retort from the one posted about.  Something like, "I appreciate the sordid compliment, but I'm not that type of person".  I've seen alot of the "Sexy eyes", "Absolutely sexy" comments on girls pics that are just headshots or pics hanging out in a scenic locale.  I've even seen some on a pic where a lady was swimming with her kids.  They still persisted.  The investigator and *ahem* gentleman in me just can't take those. 


  Look, I know I'm a adult goofball, but here is some advise to the posters, only play with your friends.  People who you know either don't mind, or ask for such things.  And I recommend doing it privately.  I know it's old news, but it is an affront to pride and respect.  Speeding has been around since highways were built, but we still write tickets.

It's kind of a hard topic to disagree with.

There is far too much of the Facebook/MySpace mentality around here lately, and the photos section is a prime example of that.  If it isn't the Bunnies posting suggestive "look at me" pictures then it is the lecherous males who leave the tasteless idiotic remarks.............follow TheSarge's advice and let's all try to be a bit more LE Commumity aware around here.  I think that far too often we get too comfortable and complacent with what we post on PoliceLink.  We forget that it is not just a LEO audience and as we all know, there are a lot of people out there who have access to the site that are not fans or friends of the LEO Community.


As another aside, it is worth reminding people that if you are looking to get a job within the LEO Community then you, too, should be VERY CAREFUL as to what you post, not just here at PL but anywhere on the internet.  While the "look at me bathing suit pictures" or the "look at me getting wasted/drunk", or the "look at me with playing with the big gun" pictures might appear to be harmless fun to you they do say a lot about your character and your thought process for potential LE Agencies doing backgrounds (oh yes, we do check these sites and Google your name too, to see what you are up to on-line).  These types of pictures can knock you right out of the potential hiring box.


As TheSarge has already pointed out, this stuff has been discussed at length here in the past, some will learn from it, others will continue the juvenile and lascivious behavior and get agitated or aggressive if you point it out to them.  That too tells volumes about their character and their mentality.  We are better than that and need to start acting like it.

Probably.  I know I got some goofy ones on mine, but the people who I put them on knew I was doing it as a joke, and they were mostly "sarcastic" against just the things we are discussing here.

++++++++++++++


Lecherous? Holy smokes ! I believe that is Elizabethan profanity, Ret, and you've been served ! But, uh, .... not sure that that even means. Sound bad though....


You guys have given me an idea: It's not mine but one that you guys created while having this discussion. I think the seed idea goes to Rek with his comment '...only play with your Friends...'.


Why don't we try this or morph it into something productive.


When you post something on a photo, for instance, why don't you preface it with a "From your friend ..." and then make your comment. That way anyone who casually reads it will see that even though it may be a little edgey in content, it comes from a friend with maybe a tongue-on-cheek meaning.  Any similar comment from a non-friend would not be welcome and would be removed.


Additionally, everyone ought to set their profile to have their photos and albums only viewable by the people in their Friends List.


I dunno,..... waddy'all think ?


Still we need to be professional and the TOU would be in effect. But when a friend back-slaps and butt-scratches ya, it's all in good fun,..... so the onlooker needs to know. The lurker or leerer (sp?) or the voyeur needs to slip away back to their cave and stay out.


Sorry,....now I am rambling.


Feedback? (It may need some fine tuning....)

Well spoken Luke. Sometimes my wife is in the room where I have the computer and she will notice the pic and comments. She has often said I thought that was a Police Officer site right.

I agree! It can be difficult when you get comments on simply a FACE photo.  It seems to me, if you are even the slightest bit attractive, that is all someone really needs. I have seen the ones wtih women with their children or standing with their spouses, getting hit on, too. It isn't just the more provocative photos.  I have already started deleting people and will continue until I am convinced, the only people on my list are friends.

Rek, without sounding unkind, this is old news.


It won't go away.


And we can deal with comments and photos as they are brought to our attention.


For our LEO's and supporters, think tactical.


The comments that some people post tell you something about themselves. They may primp and stand tall among those saluting with a final and respectful RIP on an article about a downed officer and then turn around and put something like: "Whoa, hotties sexy momma. Sure would like to see the rest." which totally reveals ethics, professionalism and class. AND-AND-AND, it isn't always in that vane. The gals are just to blame as the guys. I've seen it and still see it.


As you think tactical, learn from what you see. I do. I will often take entire discussions and Vault them for 'evidentiary' purposes.


I recently sanctioned a school police officer for continually hitting on gals photos, probably hoping to score. After his account was closed, asked the question: "Wonder what your Chief would think if he saw you on your work computer posting such comments." I believe all I saw after that was elbows and ++++++++++ as he took off down the street.


Reklaw and the rest, you can't really stop everyone from the comments that make. But you can remove those people from your Friends List or you can PM them respectfully and advise them you didn't think the comment they made on your photo was appropriate. I am amused to see some people's profile with Friends listed who have long since had "Account_Removed" attached to them. Like, "Are these guys do desparate that they'll make anyone a friend just for the stinking points?"


And, for the very few of you: Put some more clothes on, push your mouth back where it belongs, quit stretching out your arm in the bathroom and taking pics of yourself, put your a++ back in something more professional, and quit acting the fool. That's for both gals AND guys !!!



Now that is something I can get behind and BUMP!!!!!!!!!!!

I like this a lot.


I have some cleaning up to do on my friends list, but I really like this. Course, all my pics are private anyway, or most of them. I share the one of Jesus with everyone. =)

I'll BUMP the idea behind this one... Although I don't see where the bunnies that are WANTING salacious comments are going to bother with this, nor those that are posting the comments.


It was said earlier that this problem has been around for awhile and I don't imagine that it's going to go away because one group of good and conscientious people would like for it to....


I think there are half a dozen or more solutions to this, but the only ones that are going to work are the ideas like Splash and Hammer mentioned.. if you don't like the comments someone is leaving, delete them from your friends list and keep your pics private. As for the rest of them, I guess it's just a "stuck-with-it" kind of thing.


So there's my two cents... sheesh, if I keep giving it to y'all, I'm going to be broke soon!
