    Oh that’s too bad.  We won’t have any “guest usama bin laudin, guest vlademere putin, ghost Kim jong Ill, or other pleasant ones!

    Or maybe we could have had a guest Dalai Bama (dolly lama) or guest Bushy George.

    They do have to register.

    It was a glitch with the last update, but it has since been fixed.

    We are each different in what we find offensive. Many people here would agree that they found nothing offensive whatsoever about TryingIt's post. In reading your other comment to Englishman, I can understand why the original statement triggered you. You stated that you posted nude photos of yourself online when you were 15. So you probably felt like this was a personal judgement against you. It wasn't. It was simply an observation about the general lack of modesty seen on FetLife, which lots of people complain about. That is offensive to them

    When we read something that triggers us, we can express our viewpoint without a personal attack or character judgement against the individual with whom we disagree. Next time, a better approach would be to say something like, "Sometimes people post nude pictures online, thinking it feels right at the time, without considering the consequences that may haunt them later."

    Thanks Chawsee.  I said doing something is cheap, not that those who do it are cheap for life.  If we are going to scientifically dissect the words, let’s at least do it accurately.

  4. Hard to imaging that a walloping would help a football player run across the field the next day.  I think we all know that this thing, at least with coaches and coaches, is rare at least these days, as it would invite all kinds of liability.

    I also see a kink friendly therapist, it's helpful to know that it's being more and more accepting in the health community. 

    Never been to a therapist but I hear a lot of nurses are spankos.  So it’s about time the health profession has come around! he he.

    You are absolutely perpetuating stereotypes. 

    Most people from Brazil speak Portuguese, so if looking to get along with them, knowing a little of their language might help — stereotype.  (No, reject that stereotypical thinking and walk up to them and persist with speaking English in their face).

    Many of those from Islamic countries and those from Jewish descent don’t eat pork, so if you want to invite one over for dinner to make friends, don’t cook pork since there’s a higher likelihood that eating such is against their convictions — stereotype.  (No, just be non-stereotypical and cook the pork and let them feel bad for rejecting).

    How ridiculous will if get?  We use understanding of people’s values and culture to find out how to work with them all the time.  It’s only negative stereotypes that are a problem.

    After all, this is the daily banter sub forum.

  7. Please don’t wrongly think by posting this I am supporting negative stereotypes.  Fact is different nationalities have different characteristics that often are associated with them.  For instance, I’ve learned through experience with several people that if a manager is Italian, loyalty and perceived loyalty most likely is the most important factor of success working for them.

    What do you think of a manager is Polish?  French?  Any other nationalities you’ve noticed have specific values that can be used as pointers for success working with/for them?

  8. Well if it ever was officially a thing it’s not now.  But taking a few stories of isolated incidents in the workplace may not be an indicator it used to be a thing.  Think about all the other “things” that used to be okay.  A consensual sexual relationship with an employee, forms of racism, all kinds of jokes, all kinds of unsafe work practices.  Why wouldn’t spanking have been “okay” then and why would it have not happened?  And when these things were either okay or tolerated, they may not have been widespread but there were more stories of them.

    A banker in China recently was fired for spanking all his employees for failing to meet quotas!


    The British military used to do it.
