It was inappropriate and could've been made in a better way (a picture of a cockroach for example), but it's clear why it happened. Rochambeau should really take a hint.

If someone posts a picture without saying others cannot use it, then I am entitled to use it.

The genitalia is not exposed in this pick. It was exposed in Joe Republic's.

You are claiming he purposefully and knowingly broke atlas rules by uploading an inappropriate picture to a place he knew was accessible across hundreds of threads in the Atlas?

Yes. That is what I am claiming. And if someone else would have showed fully nude pics to the Atlas on purpose, they would have probably gotten banned from this place.

It's like an autism buffet.

Also, I'd welcome all of my "administrative duties" being removed.  I honestly wouldn't mind, but that's mainly because I don't have any.
Please categorise your pornography collection by type, then alphabetically. Then index the collection, photocopy the index and file in 3 different places.

Changing the image in somebody's sig is good fun.

Who remembers when I put "Harry is a f**kwit" in Harry's sig?

And, of course, when King changed my Santorum banner.

If Joe really did this, he should be removed as a moderator. I find it hard to believe that doing something like this isn't "against the rules." However, even if it isn't, it is obviously unethical and someone in charge of moderating boards should be the last type of person stooping this low.

The fact of the matter is that a moderator knowingly and intentionally made graphic pornography visible on this forum. Even worse, he did it with the sole purpose of harming another member. Unacceptable.

Well, Joe could have still told me to remove his pic without changing it to a naked black guy. When I found out that he did not want me to use his pic, I stopped using it. He could have done that at the very beginning.

That would have been much less fun however.

Also the fact I have autism does not negate that someone did something wrong. And that's the last I have to say on this topic!

When I posted the image link on this forum - the only time I ever did so - it was of a mildly offensive cartoon gif.  Since then, and separately from this forum, I did some restructuring of my PB account.  If anybody was relying on my image links until that point... well, that's unfortunate for them, isn't it?

I second Rowan, on this one.

While Joe did probably violate section 8.3 of the Photobucket Terms of Use, there's no more evidence of the crime and he removed it from the forum before Nym could moderate it (I assume he's the one with power to moderate signatures).

It does bring up the interesting question of who would get the infraction points.

I hate to whip out a "think of the children" argument, but I feel like I have to.  Not that I think showing a naked man could corrupt the children any more than they already are, but rather because, ideally, Atlas Forum should be a place where young folk (and, with this kind of picture, adults for that matter) can come and not get in trouble just because an authority figure happens to glance towards their screen at the wrong time.  Certainly, for the most part, the picture could've been avoided, because Rochambeau only posts in inane threads that most everyone should be avoiding anyway, but you never know.

I don't disagree with the general motives behind the, ah, "incident", and I'm not certain Joe has done anything that should lead to him having less power on the forums, given that he could've done what he did just as effectively if he was a regular member.  But I do think it was stupid to change the picture to one that could have a negative impact on people worse than just hazily-defined "irreparable psychological damage".
