I haven't been around Bzoink much the last week or so. This is mainly because I'm not reviewing surveys currently. And if I'm around the site then I feel compelled to review surveys and get rid of, what I feel is, inappropriate content.

However, Bzoink continues to lose traffic and money at an alarming rate. I realize saying this probably doesn't help the cause at all. My current only option and thought process after countless months of trying to get traffic to turn around again has been to let the smut surveys stay on the site. So.. that's what I've been doing.

If people use the rating system correctly (which most of the worst don't) then I don't feel like this is much of an issue. You've been warned and it's your fault for proceeding if you get offended.

This was my feeling for years. Not that I ever really encouraged disgusting surveys. Then 2 or 3 years ago someone obviously had a problem with me or the site and apparently reported me to all of my advertisers because I got an email from every last one of them in the same week and I lost most of them. Bzoink has been hurting ever since, and was forced to remove a lot of content in order to get advertisers back.

But, now am I not only missing several advertisers still, traffic has been on a decline ever since.. From 60,000 people a day.. To recently.. 15,000 people a day.

So.. regardless of lots of words. The real subject of desired input is 'smut' being allowed back onto Bzoink to a certain extent.

You know my thoughts on this. There's an R rating for a reason, and as long as some people try to use it, then I don't see the problem. Not only that, but people should know by now that the internet is just generally unclean.

I agree with Wendy.
Although it is not exactly what would be most appropriate, it is a way to keep people interested.
I think it is sad that we have to allow dirty things everywhere nowadays just to keep people interested.
But the R rating is sort of an enter at your own risk sign for those who do get offended.

Again, I will repeat what the other two said - There is a reason for the rating system. You click it, it gives you a nice little warning and you know what you're walking into. If you don't want to see a R rated survey then don't click on them plain and simple. As long as the R rated surveys stay IN the surveys and not on the forums I'm fine with it. I will not allow anyone to feel uncomfortable in the forums and I don't think you would either Andy, so I'm sure that's not an issue. But the surveys are surveys with a nice little warning, if your easily offended DON'T click them plain and simple.

I basically agree with what everyone else says. There's a rating system for a reason, and, so long as people rate their smutty surveys "R", then I don't see a problem with letting the dirty surveys stay on Bzoink.

I do agree with Ashley, though... that it sucks that if there's not dirty content on a website, it doesn't attract as many people. :-/
Would it be okay if I took your breath a w a y ?

i agree with above.
let me just give a suggestion.
hire people to go through the surveys and rate them theirselves.
because some people have different views on what is 'R' rated
compared to 'PG-13' or 'G'
i believe there is a good in everybody, & i intend to find it.
i believe a smile can make everything different.
i believe in never saying goodbye.. only 'see you later'.
i believe in love, not finding it doesn't mean it isn't there.
& i believe that optimism is the key to happiness. (:
