I'm new to this forum, but I'd like to very nicely ask if it would be possible for posters to put a warning at the beginning of their posts if they are going to post pictures or post links to dogs or cats being sold for food, tortured, or already cooked or otherwise.  This is sickening and I have no desire to look at these pictures.  No warning was given (or at least none that I saw) or I wouldn't have opened the posts to begin with.  Angry

I understand what you mean...I don't like reading or seeing that stuff either, it depresses me unlike anything else can...

Yeah, it's shocking and I get the point, but by posting gory pictures you are preaching to the converted and that's not cool. Gore has always repulsed me.

JustMe, thank you for starting this thread.  I don't know what you saw, but I hope I don't stumble upon it.
I don't need to see those kinds of pics or video to get the point. :-/

Unfortunately, I was not so lucky and accidentally stumbled on the beginning of an upsetting picture. 

Avoid the thread started by Steve, in the The Ring> attention Dr. Margaret Chan.

The other thread that upset my stomach was titled:
"We don't eat this in America" in the Misc/Other Discussions.

Good idea.  I just did on both posts.

JustMe, I received your complaints, and fully understand your concerns.

I just posted another topic about this, and hope it helps.  Unfortunately, I don't have a way to edit the topic titles of those other sections, or I would leap in, edit the topic names, and add a "WARNING! GRAPHIC IMAGES" to each topic.

It would be a lot better if people simply posted a link to such images, and also warned people that if they click on the link, they'll see images that could be very upsetting.

Hey, I just figured out how to modify the title.  I've finished modifying one with a big warning.  And now I'll do the next.  I just wanted to pop in here to let you know I'm on it.

Cheers, and hugs.

You're welcome, JustMe.

Thank you for speaking up.  It's impossible to check all the posts at the forum, so it really helps if people report problems and concerns.  Your report helped get the ball rolling! Thank you!

Itchmo is very big on "free speech" -- and I fully agree -- but that doesn't mean we can't factor in how others will react to what we post, and post appropriate warnings.
