1- He posted pics, and claimed a size. With no measurements. But there’s no forum rule that dictates the pics have to be measurement pics. So he doesn’t have to do that.
2- Then he opened a thread in “life love and fantasies” section (attention firegoat), writing about his experiences with his claimed sizes. As far as I know, there’s no forum rule dictating that he must prove his size first, before writing about his experiences with that size :) So that’s perfectly legal too.
Agreed. Absolutely ‘legal’. And “life love and fantasies” is the correct forum to post in, as you point out.
Now, in that case, noone has the right to call him a liar, or to be rude. I think I am right up to here. Am I not?
Yes. No one has the right to call him a liar, because he does not have to post measurement pics. But they have every right to be sceptical.
Neither does he have the right to expect anyone to believe his claims. If he asks why they do not believe his unsubstantiated claims, “because you won’t post measurement pics” is a perfectly acceptable response. Rudeness is not acceptable. There is nothing rude in asking for measurement pics, or stating that you do not believe unsubstantiated claims, unless asked or stated in a rude manner.
You may not believe him, you may even write that and ask for ruler pics, but being rude and negative shouldn’t be allowed, in my book. That will certainly discourage members who are thinking about posting pics. They may think that it’s too much pain in the ass, and change their ideas.
Just a friendly analysis and suggestion here.
You are correct. Perhaps it could be added to the forum guidelines that no size can be claimed for pictures without a ruler, but the FG’s are compulsory reading for Newbies and to keep making them longer, more complex and harder to remember would be counterproductive.
So we all have to use common sense: either post clear ruler pics, or don’t complain if people (politely) call you on your size claims. If you can take a picture but not hold a ruler at the same time, don’t claim a size.
Your friendly analysis and suggestion are always welcome kaan. :)
