So, I was on the forum for a adult game today, and I posted a thread that was a detailed review of the game.

One of the less formal things I mentioned was that one of the girls in the game greatly reminds me of my ex. I posted a picture comparing the two and everyone found the picture in bad taste and the admin removed the picture "for obvious reasons".

Now, this isn't the first time I've had moderators or admins insult my intelligence before, and I'm starting to get used to the "I can ban you" zero-tolerance, totalitarian attitudes that seem to be somewhat common with forum members with any real power. That being said, I honestly didn't know what was wrong. I credited the source (her pictures were copyrighted), there was no nudity involved, and no ill-intent... intended.

Upon asking the admin what the reasoning was, he/she explained that it could have been offensive to my ex. While this logic makes sense from an omnipresent point of view, to me at least, it seems to break down when one thinks about what my ex being offended entails, since she isn't exactly omnipresent.

For my ex to be offended, that would mean she would have seen the picture. For her to have seen the picture (assume the picture isn't copied to other websites, which isn't all that unrealistic considering it's just a comparison of a video game character and my ex) she would have had to been on the website forums. For her to have to be on the game's forums, she most likely played, or was at least interested in the adult game. For her to be interested in the adult game, that means that she likes erotic media. If she likes erotic media, then she should be quite open about sex (unless it's rape or child porn, why would you hide the fact that you watch porn?). Therefore, for her to see the picture, she would be at least somewhat open about herself and any sex life she as, so seeing a picture of herself in comparison to a 3D model of a fictitious video game character really shouldn't phase her, right?

On the other hand, if she were to be offended, than she probably would have no interest in an adult game, therefore never seeing the picture. Ignorance is bliss after all (yes, I know it's technically a logical fallacy to use a cliche, but you have to admit that it is appropriate in this case).

Is anyone going to question the logic of the situation?

I put this up so that people could either agree or critique my train of thought.
