Olympic hottie thread locked - why?
Quote | Reply
Dan,

Why was this thread locked? It was pretty civil and light hearted, had contributions from both men and women, and had been around for years. Is sharing pictures of attractive athletes too politically incorrect for this place now?

Did that become a brouhaha? I thought it was just a haha. But now I don't see it, has it disappeared?

ETA - my old eyes must have missed it, I see it now

And the tri side gets an Olympic hottie thread, I feel discriminated against.

We are so fucked.

Preemptive strike. There hasn't been a good ol' fashioned shitstorm around here since The Great Banishment Event and my guess is that Dan's spidey sense was tingling.

What makes it even better is many of those pics were the actual athletes trying to sexualize their bodies/sport. Volleyball players naked with the net covering nips? Curler bent over her stick wearing nothing but a thong? Ok.

That was me that posted the photo. And to be clear, she would be considered hot regardless of where she was from. Did I mention that she was hot? Her curling partner is her husband.

Yeah, I'm used to it. My wife mentioned something this morning about today being a special day, but I told her she was wrong because the TDF doesn't start until July.

What's Dan's beef with OAR? He thinks Russia should be allowed into the games, or he doesn't think any Russian athletes should be allowed to compete, or something else?

I only read a bit of it yesterday. It started with if you are going to punish Russia for doping then "Russia" should not be mentioned in the Olympics. Between "Olympic Athletes from Russia" and the NBC commentators mentioning these athletes are Russian makes the reversal of all Russian athletes are banned to what we have now more comical. I think Dan went so far to say he was offended by all of it. Here's the thread in case I am off base with my cliff notes.

Thanks. Not sure his argument makes sense, or that it should warrant locking a thread because one of the pictures was of an OAR athlete (not sure how much doping occurs in curling), but it's his forum.

Yep. She was in curling clothes and a bikini. GASP!!!

I doubt that is why the thread was locked. Probably because she didn't come out and express a hatred for Trump. :)

There is a debate in there if they should have been allowed at all and what they should be called. I think it comes down to instead of OAR just Olympic Athletes.

I was half kidding with that's why he locked it.

If I recall, the original one was locked too. Having that many pics posted in one thread messes with the bandwidth or some other goobly gook.

Look at the screen name of the person who started that thread.
