There're a few other posts with it. The video is rather old, and I haven't heard of any protests over there since then. Has anyone?

If there are a few other posts with it, I consent for this to be deleted.

Please don't just put a video clip up and expect us to watch it.

At least put some content descriptor text in your message.

Hell, I don't even know if it's RKBA related.

+1 I'm pretending to listen to an ecology lecture right now. I can't really watch video.

Fine, as I said, it can be deleted.

However, this statement is over the board:

Hell, I don't even know if it's RKBA related.

Why, RKBA is an American-only R? And wasn't this video made by an American crew? Weren't there messages from British guys to Americans? How isn't this RKBA related?

C'mon, why don't you just let this thread cool off, then?

His point was that without clicking the link we can't tell what it is about. Your first post and/or thread title should indicate what the content of the video is about.

For example:

Thread Title: "Brits warn Americans about how bad it sucks not having guns."

First Post content: "Check out this video of a bunch of Brits that want their guns back. <insert link>"

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Much better than: "Do You Care?"
First Post: "I just received this: <link to nobody-knows-what-because-you-didn't-tell-us, maybe-it's-hardcore-gay-man-porn, I'm-not-clicking-that-until-someone-replies-saying-what-it-is...>"

I think you misunderstood Bill.

I can put a link up on this board and without some kind of a description of what it actually links to, and for all you know the link is to video of fat, ugly people having sex. And what a nasty surprise that would be for someone who clicks-through expecting something RKBA-related.

When you put a link on this board, you need to at least also include a sentence or two as to what the content is at the other end of that link.

I think it's a pretty low bar to get over, don't you?

I stand corrected, as far as your expectations go.
Can you point out the Forum rules I broke? I don't have problems with not being right.

Pretty much what I was thinking.

No rules were broken, it is just a netiquette issue which both sides of this little argument seem to be lacking.

You were thinking about gay man porn? :D

Forgive me, I couldn't resist.

Dark&Good,

AFAIK, you didn't break any forum rules. You just didn't provide enough information for some of us to feel comfortable following your link. For all we know, hardcore gay porn is really important to you :rofl2:.

More along the lines of NSFW mystery content. I don't judge what floats people's boat, lest I be no different then the gun grabbers that impose there opinions on others.

I fixed it, but I can't fix yours.

I disagree about my tasteless comments imposing my opinion on anyone. They don't carry the force of law.

Upon having seen just how twisted, disturbing, tortured, nauseating and utterly surreal the legal and political systems are in this state, I find it almost hard to believe many of us would be shocked by NSFW material even of the more disgusting genres.
