Hi BP, I don't know which mod removed it, but there was at least one complaint about it, and presumably it was removed based on the following rule:
Do not post graphic images of violence. If you have a legitimate political purpose for posting a link to an image of graphic violence, be sure to affix the NSFW warning on either side of the link.


It was up for about a week, so I'm sure that anyone who wanted to see it had a chance. :wink: Happy New Year, btw!

Happy New Year to You & Yours!

With all due respect, Mr Cowboy, how on earth would you know the contents of the video if you haven't seen it? :ponder:

I haven't seen it either, btw. :)
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

My comment, using the word 'surely' indicates a 'possibility'...not a 'certainty.'

Had I posted "It was no worse than" or "No worse than" or "Certainly no worse than"..then you might have or could have room think that I was making a definitive statement regarding the video.
I can see how you may have mistaken my comment due to the fact that I ended the sentence with a . (period) rather than a ? (question mark), but this may be overly generous on my part.

Happy & Safe New Years to You & Yours...:beer:

That video was fucking awesome! I watched the whole thing and laughed my ass off!

Was it really 'removed'?

It was an educational video ... I thought so anyway ... because it shows people what not to do because dumb asses got hurt and landed probably at the doctors office or in the ER ... and I don't see what it has to do with politics or NSFW ... it's not porn!

And after this useless issue I don't have a happy new year ... :ohreally: :roflmao:
