I agree... I think the editing moderator needs to jump in here and explain his (or her) actions.  Meanwhile... here's another sweet pic of Susie... borat

Oh my!  ABSOLUTELY no disrespect was intended in the shooting of this photograph!  Relax... it is a blanket.

Really?!?  That isn't a blanket.  There is an obvious eyelet and seam which distinguishes this as a flag.

I saw this image was nixxed by the moderator and it is a puzzle to me why. It wasn't even what I would call an implied. Someone must have been cranky. For those who want to see it, here is a link to it in my port:

I love that pic but on here you cannot show side butt shots if you are wearing a thong.

They don't allow side butt? Wha? Even facebook allows side butt! Are they going to outlaw side boob next? That would be a crime. Dang... I guess I won't be posting the new avatar I wanted then...

RE:  All this flag stuff going on... 

FWIW...in 1968...as the result of flag burning protests against the Viet Nam conflict, laws began to be passed making it a crime to desecrate or burn the US flag.  All these laws were subsequently declared unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989).

Not to be outdone...more laws hit the books, only for those to also be declared unconstitutional by the US S.Ct. in United States v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990).

All these decisions were based upon 1st Amendment free speech guarantees, which means you can do whatever you want with a US flag, or anything that looks like a US flag.  Please note that art, and fashion as an expression of art, are also considered protected free speech. 

Of course, lawmakers love to leave laws like these on the books, however, they are without merit.  And as far as the red, white, and blue colored photography going on here, there ain't nothin' wrong with this very creative, artistic expression!

side butts that have more than a thong back like very small brazilian style back don't get deleted though, I figured it out by trial and deletion and non-deletion of certain pics smile

No issue with legality. I know we can burn it in protest and we can burn it at end of it's life as a sign of respect (odd how burning itself isn't good nor bad, per se).

It's protocol.

Let me give what I consider to be a cogent example. In MX I wasn't required to tip big but emelle MADE me relinquish all the remaining cash to the dining establishment. Not required by law but she insisted that it was the right thing to do. emelle, who is far more gorgeous than I, and since I deem brains correlate with beauty, I presumed her to be right and acquiesed to her demand and let the cafe have all my money! :-)

So the way we treat the flag isn't a legal issue but a matter of protcol.

I think we may have lost Yani's lovely Nine with Nothing. At least I didn't see it where I thought it should be. The one that I painstakingly identified from the rear! :-(.

Yani, if we did, can you repost the image but this time with a link so that I presume only those with MM accounts can access it.

I think this is OK. Is it?
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30021854

I thought I knew the norms and mores around here but I guess we're not all in one accord. [and I'm not referring to the Honda :-)].

If someone archived the ID information, can they repost it with the image? I don't think I backed it up. Didn't realize my work was in danger of being censored.

Doesn't the poster get a chance to edit the post to conform? I guess no warning.

The great Ken Marcus had his work censored by the US government so I guess we're in good company!
See about 1/3 down this link
http://www.modelmayhem.com/education/ph … n-marcus-2

You could look at that image of the model standing there as similar to the pose that Ahlisha had! :-)

I would not make the thread open to the public--sorry non MM lurkers, however, that's not decision within my purview. Since it is in the pubic domain, I guess that the conscientious mods clamp down. Trade offs.

Nymph: please post what ye will for avatar. Always good to see you...never too much! :-)

to people that care...

someone made the blanket, someone sold the blanket, and someone bought the blanket, all parties didn't care if it was made in china or not, but all intended it to be used however

similarly, for the people that do care about how the flag is used, such reverence and idolizing is distinctly american where even citizens of other commonwealth countries have no qualms about whether their flag is on a beach towel or not

the irony of course being that the desire to levitate the flag above the earth in all situations can't even be a law here

in this situation, if your opinion differs it just seems fruitless to even acknowledge how someone else used something with the flag pattern

that was fun to type, carry on

Hey guys


For the next time...I may be able to let you in on some more secluded areas around PV to shoot without being too much in the public eye if it helps a bit

Long stretches or tiny bays

I know quite a few jungle areas with very old trees that may be very interesting too

Anyway...I love the place and shoot at a few spots and they are amazing

Hey FG... we're definitely open for suggestions... we had over 20 models at our PV location on this cruiseshoot with just about zero 'looky lew traffic'... with some models doing topless and nudes... only a few lifeguards and jetski pilots... and they weren't complaining... lol

And for the next time... here's the link below to the best cruiseshoot coming up next year.  It's the lowest priced cruiseboat photoshoot to Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta in 2013... and the only cruiseshoot where you have the option of shooting one on one's with your favorite models for a full day, with 4 groupshoots also scheduled... borat
