I've seen much worse than that on here. I could see if it was a nude, but it wasn't.

I had a huge collection of Vampi when I was a kid. Didn't hurt me.

This place ain't fun anymore.
I've put it back up but under a spoiler. Tery's point still holds, though. We do have kids come to the site to do a school report so we try to keep the nudity to a minimum. Had that been an actual photo of a woman I wouldn't have allowed it.

Incidentally, you can thank underground comix legend Trina Robbins for Vampirella's skimpy apparel. She designed the outfit. Robbins is a class act, and feminist role model.

Face it, tiger: Us Geeks have inherited the Earth.
I'll agree to disagree with her about the objectification of women with the outfit. ;)

I just re-read SL and truly, it's the gift that keeps on giving.
It feels as if SK jumped into a pool of words and swam around and dived and surfaced and went down again. . and had the time of his life.
But, I'm really a zombie-loving gal who's incredibly proud of Englishman Andrew Lincoln playing Rick Grimes in TWD:okay:

Sorry, I digress.
If you have to have vamps (that sex-and-death combo doesn't work for me), then make them totally immoral, terrifying and generally gross as the crew in Thirty Days of Night (No Twilight-style Sehnsucht for those vampires from teenage girls, I think).
Or Wesley (why-didn't-I-pay-my-taxes?) Snipes as Blade, the anti-vamp - now there's a vamp I worth rooting for!

I'm re-reading this post now - it sounds ferociously anti-vamp - but no disrespect to vamp fans intended.
Thanks folks:eagerness:
