This poll originally had THREE answers, not one but someone decided to tamper with my poll and remove TWO of the answers because those two answers contained gory images!

I am utterly frustrated because I worked so hard on this poll and now, it's pretty much just a one-answer poll because some people just can't handle looking at what MAKES UP their body!

I thought DDO was supposed to be a website where people could discuss controversial topics but it seems like this isn't always the case as many of my polls have been considered inappropiate or spammy by some people who shall not be named!

My question is this. Is gore really so bad? Those gory images I put on my poll weren't Call of Duty gory. They were more like mildly gory, in other words not gory to the point where you feel nauseous! What is the big deal with blood and why is blood considered inappropiate?!

Just re-add the answers just with out whatever you had. I don't know what you had as your descriptions, but some people really are tramatised by what has happened with their own self harm. Your images could trigger some sort of actual psychological trauma.

I did what you said and added back the answers! I changed the images to more appropiate images that won't be as triggering or traumatizing.

I would have just deleted the whole thing since the poll became kind of pointless once I deleted the two images, but some glitch happened that prevented the poll from being removed... I'll figure that glitch thing out tomorrow

I am utterly frustrated because I worked so hard on this poll and now, it's pretty much just a one-answer poll because some people just can't handle looking at what MAKES UP their body!

I'm sorry that your hard work on this poll ultimately went to waste, but putting up an image of a guy lying in a pool of blood with a gun next to him with his brains leaking out of the remaining half of his head is a bit much for the DDO polls section.

What does the image (described above) have to do with discussing things? If you want to discuss this topic, create a forum thread on it. No one is going to stop you.

but it seems like this isn't always the case as many of my polls have been considered inappropiate or spammy by some people who shall not be named!

Why not name them? The name of this person is Airmax1227, I removed two of your poll answers, and I'm the one who removes poll spam. This isn't some mystery or anything.

My question is this. Is gore really so bad?

I don't know, maybe yes, maybe not. If you want to discuss gore as it pertains to society create a thread on it. I'm sure it will be an interesting discussion.

"Those gory images I put on my poll weren't Call of Duty gory. They were more like mildly gory, in other words not gory to the point where you feel nauseous! What is the big deal with blood and why is blood considered inappropiate?!

I believe that image was a bit much, so I removed it.

Feel free to create the poll again and not use such a graphic image next time.

Don't worry! I redid it with more appropiate images and I'm sorry for posting images that were way too gory and extreme! I guess I got carried away.

How do you decide what is a "bit much"?

Kind of hard to make an accurate assessment on whether or not an image qualifies as a "bit much" when you have an objectively flawed morality.

I may have been a bit snarky with Sam, and I apologize for that... but I think the standards for images in the n the polls section is something people just need to use their best judgement on. I don't think we really need an exhaustive explanation for what that is, and I'm not going to do so at 1am. People just need to avoid things like nudity and things overly graphic. If it happens to go too far, which I think we probably could all at least come to the same area of agreement, then the only risk is that it gets removed.

In any case, I'm not sure how serious this discussion is supposed to be, but I figured I'd offer that for now, and if people still have some concern over it then I'll do my best to clarify at some point in the future.
