@dogtrash - Not sure what you mean? Pics in galleries or profiles? Define 'disgusting?'
@Grik- Sorry about OT novel/manifesto. Yeah, I'm loquacious. Awesome pic, beautiful feet, great arch, lovely, EPIC, amazing BLACK polish, really cool ankle bracelet, tight & shapely calves. Not a fan of the shoes, but they make her feet look really nice. One might even say "Her feet are aesthetic." [rolling eyes] Good choice.
Guys, guys guys, 20+ posts below nothing to do with feet! suddenly everyone's a novelist?!?!?
Meanwhile back at WikiFeet ranch, i refer to the now iconic pic of her feet, as pristine, sexy and symmetrical as possible gamoto!!!!!!!!

@dogtrash Thank you for the information. I appreciate that little update and it sounds like a great idea.

Hey guys, how do we report disgusting pics? There's no category for it, do we report them or just let them stay?

@dogtrash - Way cool! It's a bit of a hassle having to copy 'n' paste into a translator like Google Translate or Babelfish, but if he could find a way to autodetect anything but English and then automatically run it through one of those, that's be great. It's not always very accurate, but better than nothing.

@Bib60, 54, and AR I talked to Eli and he says it's ok to post in other languages but he'll try to find a way so that the site translates the comments to make life easier for the guild members. Which is awesome.

What @Rex said. It's like everything else in life - lots of straw & little wheat, lots of mud and a few diamonds. Pretty easy to glean what you want and let the rest go by. 'Fave' the ones you want to follow, and ignore everything else. Simple and peaceful.
Maybe Eli does want to attract more users by remaining 'diverse.' At least Rob Kardashian is gone.
@54. Yeah, Rachel Hunter sounds like a good sight for sore eyes.

@54 - I *do* see your point. As funny as it was, we've all felt like @Windows when he realized he'd been 'fooled' in the gallery of a... surgically altered genetic male.
I'm not going to really debate all that here, as it's not the place, and nobody really knows for sure what makes up male and female. Oh, hell, I can't resist. Is it XX vs. XY? The XY still shares an X with XX. Is male & female purely genetic? Varying degrees of androgen, hormones, estrogen, testosterone, etc. can totally change a human body. So is male & female purely chemical? Carl Jung's archetypes of the Collective Unconscious stay that we all have elements of both anima and animus, male and female, seeking expression in whatever type physical body we have. Is male & female purely psychological? Similarly, breasts are all breasts, just different sizes; a clitoris is just an unexposed small penis; labia are just a rearranged scrotum and testes are just dropped ovaries. Is male & female purely physical then? I'm not sure any of us here are smart enough to answer those questions.
This much I do know and agree with you about... I'd like some warning that what I'm about to view are actually size 13s that belong to someone who was physically born a guy. If others want to look at that, fine, I do not judge. I just know that *I* don't wish to see that, and would like fair warning about it so I can choose to go to the gallery of a girl who was born that way naturally. As I said last night, I don't see any real *harm* in having those galleries here (even Rob Kardashian...), so long as they are clearly flagged as such. Even the LGBT 'community' recognizes transgendered folk as a third distinct category/gender/sex. (IOW, even THEY don't really know if it's a man or woman so they separate them into a new group).
But, as you have obviously strong feelings about it, as I said, the thing to do is take i up with Eli, not other members on the walls. "His house, his rules" and his rule states:
o We only allow opening galleries for women over 17 who are listed on IMDb.
So you'll have to get *his* opinion (not your own) as to whether male-to-female transgenders qualify as 'women' in his mind, and website. Obviously, IMDb has decided they do, and that's how they're able to get onto this site at this point in time.
FWIW, I generally agree with you that they don't belong on this site. Much like the argument about bare feet vs. feet with shoes ("...shoes & socks is not really what Wikifeet is about"), there are *other* sites dedicated entirely to TV/TS/'she-males' if that's what someone wants to view. I don't, and don't particularly want to see it here; if it is, I'd like to know it *before* I open the gallery so I can choose not to look at that.

I'm done. I'm off to the Rachel Hunter And Tatyana Ali galleries. These eyes Need candy. A WHOLE lot of candy :)

When I first came across one of those galleries over a year ago I emailed Eli and got no response which is unusual. So I figured he probably wants it this way, diverse, so I never brought it up to him again. It is what it is. I can accept it. If there were also male celebs on this site I would accept that as well. I wouldn't like it but there's plenty of content on this site that IS for me and that I DO enjoy. The stuff that I don't like, I can easily ignore.
2014-02-22 19:05:4754 (user)
@BackInBlack60 It's just that those galleries shouldn't be here in the first place, and those who keep those galleries going by either turning a blind eye to them or flat out writing "not bad" or "no, this IS a girl now his surgeon says so" horrify me. Don't get me wrong, that's ok they don't want to hide anymore and more chicks for us, I get that. And more chicks: I love that. But what's not ok is every so often at one turn or another there it is: We must accept them or else attitude. Hey, when PublicFeet was up, I didn't go over there and try and wreck those sick galleries. Why do they try and mess with wikiFeet? Keeping the walls clean 100% as you quoted me includes lobbying to have these galleries removed. Again, these galleries shouldn't be here in the first place.

@54 - Sorry, friend, but I gotta go with @AR on this one. You're supposed to be setting an example here and stated you wanted to clean up the walls... not 1%, not 50%, not 99% but 100%, remember? And also a discerner of true intent. OK, so judge for yourself your last post, using this yardstick:
"Before approving a comment, you must make sure it doesn't contain any sexual refs, hateful, racist or derogatory expressions. You must not reject a comment just because you don't agree with it. People are allowed to voice their opinions as long as they are respectful."
I think @AR is actually being kind with the 'passive-aggressive' thing. I'd call it just plain aggressive and provocative. You've implied that @AR is homosexual or into trannies, just because he disagreed with you, and it sure as hell wasn't respectful. Think about it.
I'm starting to think we've ALL been down in these 'walls' too long the last few days ('sewers' is a more apt term), and all of our fuses are getting a bit short. I'll be the first to admit mine is, and as soon as I clear this round of 50 or so comments, I think I'm gonna shut this SOB down and go watch some old Westerns on MeTV, or the Rush "Clockwork Angels" DVD I got for Christmas and havent seen yet, and leave this mess to the messers.

@ 54 Again, there is no need to be passive aggressive in your statements to me as an attempt to insult me. I would greatly appreciate if you would stop. When I come across comments in other languages that are hateful, sexually explicit or have vulgarity in them especially vulgarity directed towards other users, I reject them. If I find words that the translators don't decipher, I reject them. Better to err on the side of caution. If you really want the comments section to stay open then we are on the same team. I won't try to insult you because I don't agree with some of your views. I ask that you show me the same respect.
2014-02-22 10:30:39Anonymous Rex (user)
I agree with BackInBlack60, I take the time to use translation apps to help me judge whether to approve or not. There is nothing in the guidelines about the comments being in English only, so until that is changed I won't reject a comment on those grounds. Running the comments through a translator is not for everyone so if you don't want to do that I would suggest leaving the comment alone for those of us who will check to make sure it's not vulgar or offensive. That would be the truly fair thing to do in order to keep this site inclusive and "diverse".

@dogtrash - @54 is probably correct, i.e., it's an English language site, so posts should be in English (and yet I'm guilty of many posts en español, albeit usually in reply to same). But I'm hardcore; I'll actually take the time to copy 'n' paste 'em into Google translate, and if it doesn't seem inappropriate, I'll approve it. In my mind, it's fine to post in your native tongue or best language for clarity, but maybe we should ask them to also post their best shot at an English translation since it's the 'default' language of thise site and most of its users.
BTW, @54, since we have no PM capability, and without saying too much, I'll just say I've noticed on some other walls that you are on a crusade/mission/quest of sorts, and... I've got your back. You be Don Quixote and I'll be your Sancho Panza. ;)
2014-02-21 17:22:1654 (user)
@dogtrash I say ask them to post an english version. If they ignore that request, same goes for their post. Maybe if their comment goes "pending" long enough they'll give us an english version or retract it. I'm all about diversity, but I'm not able nor do I care to decipher 10-15 different languages just to clear a list of comments awaiting approval.
2014-02-21 16:27:58dogtrash (user)
@54 and Bib60 - Agree with the both of you. And by the way, what do we do regarding comments in diferent languages? Do we translate them, or is it ok to ask them "english please"?
2014-02-21 02:25:13BackInBlack60 (user)
@54 - Agree that @Gooch needs to change avatar. I would approve his comments but for that.
2014-02-20 22:23:2654 (user)
Gooch just needs to change that profile picture.
2014-02-20 19:04:27Gooch (user)
Wow! Now, this is what a beautiful, perfectly aesthetic and amazing shaped foot looks like! Outstanding!
