I am not just being a prude, I  am tempted by young attractive women just as much as any other man, but since the emails come daily I would rather not be bombarded with opportunities to lust.

<So don't open them. ::). How in the world is it x10 or any others companies responsibility to sanitize their environment so people like you don't get offended?? As a frequent traveler to Europe I can assure you human sexuality is expressed at an exponential rate compared to here yet they don't have the rape and sexual crime issues we have in this country..why? In my opinion we (Europeans) are not brought up in the mind set that many Americans are where sex and the human body is EVIL.. Sex is natural and the human body is a beautiful thing. (OK some more beautiful than others)

Quote
Nor would I want my wife to open one of theses emails and think I am hooked on porn or something.  Isn't there another way to sell theses products?

< Dude if she would think this it sounds like its time to go to some relationship classes..

Quote
The use of a few attractive women would be OK I guess, but the excessive use of cleavage and bikinis is not really necessary.
< Well when you buy 51 percent of their stock you can dress them anyway you want to. 

Quote
So I may not be alone.  If I am the only one then yes I should just stop the emails.
< And if you are not what?...you are going to start a personal crusade to change x10's advertising practices? Then what next a campaign to have all the bikini manufactures stop production...then a campaign to have all women on the streets wear pants and long sleeve shirts..then have the grocery store put all the liqueur enclosed in cabinets so people cant see it and be tempted.. give me a break..

I think Dave inadvertently hit it on the head with his picture...and his comment "lust is where you find it... it doesn't reside anywhere"

As a Roman Catholic man, Sounds to me like you need to take responsibility for your OWN thoughts..as we ALL on this planet should do, that is the Christian way.


Just my opinion...Is it OK that I have one even though It doesn't coinside with yours?

I agree that the models are not necessary. Actually they seem to illude the the idea of using the cameras for porn shots. (Yeah, I know, the girls have "clothes" on)  That's why I said it "ILLUDES to the IDEA."
And for those of you who say "unsubscribe to the email, I don't know where you got the idea that those pics come in the email.  They are on the website.
So you say, "don't use the website?"  Uh.....sure, we won't shop, or buy cameras, or protect our houses, or watch TV or go online..... because we don't like the ^%*_)(  that's shoved in our faces in the name of "marketing."
People say sex sells. Yeah, I guess it does. But it's not necessary, and I believe it is more detrimental than beneficial to most businesses.
If you want sex you can get it without exposing it to everyone. 
To those of us who have enough of it in private, it's just a pitiful attempt to wipe out morals.
To the man who started this post, Hoorayyyyyyyyyy for you!

the X10 ads are far less than offensive than pop ups or someone yelling "boo" at me when I log in


Can we say, "Pop-up Blocker????

When your beliefs differ from the majority of others, however, it's your responsibility to adapt.

Did you take a poll? Or maybe you could just quote the source of the research that proves the majority prefers this type of advertising[/size

".....I'd suggest opting out of the emails and only go to the X10 site when needed...."

Oops, sorry I didn't realize the original poster said the did come in emails.  ;D   
Okay, so only go to the x10 site "when needed."  I guess the "when needed" shopping sessions don't have the bimbo pix?  Or do you mean he should go to the site "when" he "needs" to look at bimbo pics?

"..... If your faith is strong, the temptation won't be a problem...." 
That proves you haven't a clue what faith is

I realize my initial response my not be in the spirit of "community" but the attitude, arrogance is really what it is, that irks me about this is people (in general ;D) that want to change "my world" simply because they have a different view point. We have all seen the effects of this in our school system, our jobs, our court system and many other areas. Somebody gets a hair up their butt then crusades to change it so everyone has to encounter the SAME THING.. These same people expect companies and government to take away all the "BAD" influences in the community so their children don't get exposed to alcohol or bad language or bad neighborhoods or what ever NORMAL variations their are that make the world go round. I may be crazy but I would not want to live in a world where everything is GREY or like wise black and white according to one group of people.. I mean isn't that what started this country, peoples desire to not live under a dictatorship?
As a parent I actually raised my daughter to take responsibility for these things in our home..I don't expect her school or employer or the city counsel or the local or federal government to do it for me. That's part of the problem these people are so busy trying to police everyone they are not taking care of business right in their OWN home. Which is where all this crap belongs.   

Seriously though I mean where does this type of thinking end, lets see there is a adult store on my way to work and when I drive by it I'm tempted..hmmm let me think about this..lets see,.. change my route if it bothers me or start a petition in the community to have it shut down.. Lets go one further and more general...I get fat when I eat at McDonald's to much but there is one just down the street from me...hmmm maybe I should ask them, out of arrogance, to change the way they do business because I don't have the self control to eat 2 double cheeseburgers instead of 4 or 5. Next on to the grocery store.."hey! you guys are gonna have to do something about this god for saken bakery, I mean seriously, every time I come in here and smell baked goods I'm tempted to eat some, what the h#$@ are you trying to do?"

And how about closer to home; Tuicemen...um seriously dude I'm really trying to loose weight could you please change your avatar because every time I see it I am really tempted to eat a handfull of M-n-M's...Please?.. (that's a joke)

OK I think that did it for me its out of my system..It just really struck a nerve with me (obviously) My point is that on the other side of the argument, any argument, is someone that has just as much right to have their opinion as you do and its just as important as yours and that is the true spirit of community.

This whole thread brings to mind an old saying about never discussing religion or politics with friends.    ;)   :D

When did "General Discussion" become "personal attacks" ?

There have been a number of personal opinions expressed in this thread.  I take them for exactly what they are, opinions.  As has been stated, each person has a right to express his/her opinion.  I had thought that forum etiquette (also pointed out previously) precluded ridiculing a poster for his/her opinion.  Obviously I was incorrect.

The original poster had an opinion, and acted on it by voicing his displeasure directly to X10.  Whether I agree with his opinion or not, I have to respect him for acting.  As my "mentor" once told me, revealing a problem without a solution or follow up action is just whining (he used a different word, but you get the point).

In the final analysis the X10 site, while it may be offensive to some, is well within it's rights to display the material in question.  On the other hand, we have forum members taking shots at one another regarding that material.  Granted I'm an old p%art, but aren't personal attacks  worse?

As a side note - has anyone noticed the number of "views" for this thread.  When I started this reply it was at 453.  I just checked and it's at 486.  Seems a bit high for normal "forum traffic...Since the title is searchable through the web, I'd suggest changing it to "X10 website objections" to reduce the load on the server. 

Can't we all play nice and respect each other?
