    Jesus christ, lol...you'd think Rene came on here in black face and gave us a link to watch a smut film about kids having sex with goats.

    I mean, the way some of you have responded in this thread, I can't imagine your reaction when you go into a gas station that offers porno mags next to the candy aisle...do you call the police and have a protest outside?

    Sure, some people are not as accepting of pornography as others, they feel it's something "evil" and that "nothing good can come from" it (that one made me laugh a bit), but this isn't church folks, this isn't an elementary school classroom or a daycare center playground...we're in the real world here, we're in a place where we talk about murder, drugs, sex, rock & roll, movies, video games, TV shows, food, technology...and yes, porno.

    Don't want to be exposed to such topics? Then get off the internet...because it's ALL around you. I'm curious where someone saw a "Family Friendly Community" banner floating on iMore when they signed up, because I sure as sh*t didn't. Do I expect a vulgar experience here? Not at all, and that's primarily because we have a pretty intelligent core of members here...but every once in a while a subject like this will pop up, and people will get all **** hurt over it, and for god's sake...let's refocus here guys, it's an article, not a testament to what iMore represents fully.

    Now I'm going to go back to watching Ghostbusters...dammit people...CHILL OUT!
    The fact that people are leaving the forum over this is hilarious.

    I'm just disappointed. I came to iMore from Android Central only to discover things at iMore are very different and not in a good way. I keep hoping though. I've seen posts about how I might use my phone for sex and now how I can get porn on my phone. Is this what iMore thinks they have to do to attract readers or is some of the readership here actually looking for this kind of content. Next it will be a discussion of the best LGBT content. Would iMore really be worse without this?

    This is only one topic with mixed views, weather I agree with this or not. I won't judge the whole forum off one topic. Been on other forums and IMO IMore is still the best I've seen . There's a great group of people here that are willing to help at a drop of hat.
    This thread is a good example of how members in This forum can have different opinions and still respect others.

    Are you kidding me?

    Would you say because a 7-11 or Quiktrip or Circle K carries pornographic magazines that THAT is what represents them as a company?

    Hell, if we're going to go on that logic, why not just write off pretty much any grocery store in the country because they sell condoms! I mean surely that means their core value is centered around sexual activities, right?

    Or how about drug stores? I mean they sell condoms, sexual lubricants, sexually charged magazines and even, at times, alcohol! I bet CVS's core marketing team sits around and goes "Let's make our stores about drunken sex and eye candy!"

    Do you not see how ridiculous this is? iMore is not using this to maintain relevancy. And so what if they do it to attract readers? It's a part of life! Maybe not your life, or the next guys life, but SOMEONE's life has pornography within it, and the site is a technology based community with a focus on the iDevices from Apple...which can look up porno, and some people might want to know how to do that.

    Seriously...some of you really REALLY need to take a step back and realize how you're making a mountain out of a mole hill. It's absurd and embarrassing really.

    You'd think this was some kind of Deeply rooted Christian Abstinence community with the way some of you have responded.

    Sean, the difference is that people go to a 7-11 or a, what did you call it, a QuickTrip for all different kinds of products, including pornographic material and condoms. Do people come to iMore for the same thing? Perhaps a survey was taken at some point and many said they'd like more discussion on sex and porn at iMore and iMore is just responding to what it's readership has requested. I didn't consider that.

    People come to iMore to learn about all kinds of features on the iDevices...yes, including pornography (since it is capable of viewing it), so yes, in the same way people go to a gas station and MAY be going there to buy a porno mag, people come to iMore and MAY want to learn about viewing pornography on their iDevice.

    There is no difference.

    Okay. So, we'll see threads about how to best purchase guns and boats here too. Okay. I know I have a choice and as long as I choose to participate here than that is the choice I've made. I need to try to open my mind and realize that porn is okay to some people.

    We did have a fire arms thread here at one point...as far as boats go, I can't see why a thread wouldn't be fine to have here as well, I mean we have a thread about the different kinds of cars people drive on iMore, so why should boats be any different?

    And yes, I agree, you should open your mind that pornography is ok for some people, in the same way that eating fast food is ok to some people, or playing the lottery, or gambling on sports...

    I can't wait for a similar thread to pop up at Android Central though. I wanna get some popcorn and enjoy that when the time comes.

    There are plenty of places to find porn without posting it on iMore. I don't think that the average reader will say "I'm going to iMore and find out where to get porn".

    1. How to get information on accepting Christ as your Lord and Savior using your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV

    2. How to get information on Killing an unborn baby using your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV

    3. How to get information on running a dogfighting ring as well as how to inhumanely dispose of the losing dog via your iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

    Well then start a thread on them of you find those topics of interestthe dogfighting one is the most likely to get closed since it deals with an activity that I believe is illegal almost everywhere. But other than that, so what if those topics are discussed? I'll stay out of them because I have no interest in discussing them but I won't be offended by their very presence on iMore.

    With all due respect, that is irrelevant.

    When someone who doesn't know about iMore searches on how to look up porn on their iDevice, there is now a greater chance for iMore to be recognized and bring that person over here. A new reader. Just because someone is looking to see how they can load porn, it doesn't mean that's all they're interested in. You can pick up readers. I'd be worried if iMore had an article on where to load necrophilia on your iDevice. Those aren't the type of people I'd really want to interact with on here. Someone who watches porn? Eh, it's not that big a deal.

    The reason why I like (good) blogging is because it's not uniformed. Stepping out of the realm sometimes isn't such a bad thing. And let's remember one thing: it's not like iMore posts a porn blog every week. It happened one time. It's not something that keeps being repeated. They got some heat when they posted something about Apple supporting the gay marriage bill. Plenty of people left some comments (including some people in this very thread who were opposed to gay marriage) that I didn't agree with, but it didn't drive me away from interacting.

    My point is this.If seeing a thread that mentions links to viewing porn for free on our Apple devices are an overreaction by some who prefer to keep their favorite tech site as it is then seeing threads being created in regard to the subject matter I mentioned above should be viewed likewise. Personally, I wouldn't be affected because I have the discipline to ignore it or not click on the link(s), and I'd like to think that a majority of others do to. Having said that, there are some subjects that get people all riled up just by a mere mention of them - porn, dogfighting, religion & abortion - to name a few. That is what happened here in this thread, I believe. I was the first to respond and I was like, "what the heck is this crap?" Had I not noticed that it was an in-house thread, I would have infracted it as SPAM/pornagraphic material and banned the OP.lol If you've been here long enough, you've seen threads created, especially those regarding politics and religion, where they were almost immediately closed or thoroughly cleansed of comments because they were deemed "offensive" and "doesn't belong here". We have an "off-topic" forum -- meaning non-technical. Having said that, who all think that porn, as it was originally discussed via the initial post in this thread, should be okay in the off-topic forum? I think it could be because the off-topic forum is clearly telling everyone that they are now venturing into a non-technical section of iMore. What say you?

    If have no problem with porn or religion or guns or abortion or whatever being discuss in the Off-Topic forum. As long as all participants kept their comments civil and without attacking others for their beliefs. The problem with some of those topics isn't their presence but that some people cannot discuss them civilly.
