Just read the mod note in the thread Harrison Ford’s body in Temple of Doom–The best men’s body in film?
The mod What_Exit admits that the thread would have been closed had it been bikini shots of women, but as it’s men, sort of ad hoc rules have been devised where you can post links but they’ll be spoilered. ETA: This seems to have been struckout now
I thank What_Exit for that concession, because now it means we can discuss whether the forum should have rules that are somewhat gender asymmetrical, or ban all such threads (or, I guess the third option is to allow all such threads).
Let me be clear: I don’t care which of these three options SDMB ultimately goes for. My desire is only for clear rules.
ISTR other threads where this kind of awkwardness has come up, so I just think it’s better to get the issue into the open and have a single decision.
