There's a bunch of good people on the F4W forum that barely post.
Isn't this a microcosm of the issue?
I'm hardly a boy scout and far from a liberal progressive. In fact, I have many issues with extreme progressives and eye roll my way through a lot of the stuff I see on wrestling twitter. Pics of pretty women on an off topic forum doesn't offend me, but I can see why the verbiage in some of those polls WOULD be offensive and/or off putting to some, and i'm not going to tell people when they should/shouldn't be offended. I also don't really understand what purpose those threads serve on a pro wrestling board, and again, as most of you know I'm the furthest thing from a prude or a white knight. I think about this board, which I own, and I wouldn't allow a thread where women are rated on a scale from hot to 3 o'clock whore to "I wouldn't fuck her with your dick". What's the point? It probably pushes more people away than it draws, regardless of whether it personally offends me.
While I understand the camp of "don't like it, don't click it", I also understand that by allowing things to go THAT far, that by proxy is what creates the culture that exists on the rest of the "on topic" site.
With all of that said, dave isn't going to care about any of this. dave wants to report on wrestling. I don't know if it's dave's responsibility to be the arbiter of what's socially acceptable on a message board, but as a businessman, I wish I was in a position to be able to throw away whatever fraction of his business he is throwing away (like "Vicky", for example) by allowing some of what goes on there. I don't think the existence of these threads makes dav (or Bryan) a bigot or sexist old man or misogynist monster or any of the other extremes that people like to immediately jump to, and I think things like "OMG do their WIVES know these threads exists?!!?" are eye roll inducing in that you are assuming every woman would be or is offended by such things (they aren't), but I do think at some point they should probably say to themselves, "how does this reflect on us, and how does this effect our business?". You can show a modicum of decency (and business sense) without being a "SJW" or "white knight" or a CUCK.
