Book discussions are one thing, but sorry, haven't seen anything in this thread yet discussing books...  Your initial post did not invite people to discuss books only the definition of pornography including in "books, movies, photos, etc.," which, whatever your intent was, invites exactly the kind of responses it got....  I have to agree, a list of hot links to these visuals does not serve the purpose of Kindleboards....

Tecwriter--

Sorry, but I have not mentioned xxx rated sites and would never do so. On many occasions there have been discussions about things that were not specifically about a particular book or Kindle.
Sorry for the misunderstanding--I never said you mentioned xxx sites, just that that's what was being posted and what was being posted didn't serve Kboard.

.... shouldn't we be able to discuss sexually explicit novels? Yes, we must watch how we discuss them but still, in my opinion, this genre is as legitimate as the others I've mentioned....
I was pointing out no books had been discussed as yet in your thread, despite it apparently being your desire. It's certainly a legitimate genre for discussion and in fact has been discussed, though not often.

Your most recent post is much better and a valid discussion point. I think this is another case where an accurate subject line serves everyone--if we know what the topic is about, we can make an informed decision on whether to read or not....

And I guess I don't see good discussion as rabblerousing....

;D

LOL!

I worked for many years in an office that wrote regulations (met my husband there, but that's definitely off topic).  We learned that there was NO WAY to write something that SOMEONE wouldn't misinterpret!  SO, no problem!

It's why, though I don't like acronyms and try to "use my words" as we say to the grandkids, I do find LOL! and the emoticons useful.

Back on topic, some of the free books have been fairly explicit, which usually elicits a discussion in the Free Book thread, to the effect, "be forewarned if this is your cup of tea" but we've never gone much farther than that.

Sigh..

Perhaps I shouldn't have tried to use a generic description of what I perceived as the links that were being posted.  Nor did I mean to single out one individual; there were several posts I was trying to address. I'll remove it as that term should not be the major point of discussion.

Sorry.   :(

I have a pilot friend who does a lot of stopovers and he told my husband he always checks under the mattress in the hotel to see what mags might have been left behind.  I don't know if this is a secret pilot thing or just a people-who-read-those-kind-of-mag thing.
