Why NSFW?

Why are some threads marked "NSFW" when, due to user avatars, every thread is potentialy NSFW? Not that I care, but it seems silly that someone would actually come here at work.

Also, are there any other forums/sites like this? or is this the only one of it's kind?

[edit] Nevermind, I saw the link board. Sorry, I'm a "noob"

TFP is very unique in many respects. NSFW is used as a means of warning that the main content is not safe for work, but you are right about the avatars. Any page is potentially NSFW due to avatars. Anyways, some people come here during work because their jobs are boring as hell. I remember that when I was a database programmer (sort of) last summer, I spent most of my time doing other things, maybe... say 70% of the time actually working, 30% of the time goofing off.

most people that surf from work have the option to view avatar's turned off.

Yes. If you go into the usercp you have the option of disabling avatars and sigs.

I surf from school sometimes, turn off avs, but there's still the occassional surprise. and a NSFW is appreciated, if it's in gen disc, or members.

I come to TFP from work all the time. I'm a SW engineer so I need a diversion from time to time whilst debugging stuff. I just shut off the avatars...sometimes.

Even with avatars on, a 100x100 avatar is different than an 800x600 naked woman.

It would suck pretty bad to be fired for something that you didn't intend to appear...

I agree, but getting fired for any reason probably sucks.

As for web usage, most larger companies have policies that focus on surfing non-work related sites and inappropriate content, in general, regardless of whether it is visible to others. In other words, even if nobody sees......if the employer wants to make an issue of it......they can.

Sad.....but well within their rights.

I think that the NSFW is agreat thing but anyone who comes here from a work pc has either A really liberal job that doesn't care or is simply taking chances.

Also, as a side benefit.. turning off avatars and sigs makes threads a little easier to read... less distractions.
