Since this group has started getting popular and is getting new pictures, it's time to take a moment to explain the group so new people will understand what kind of pictures belong here.

First, the rule of thumb is, if it's the sort of thing you have seen in Malingering's stream it's very much welcome. That's the most basic guide. You likely wouldn't be a member of this fan-group if you weren't familiar with her work, right?

To prevent flooding, the group has a 5 photos a day limit. We ask that you only post 1 picture of a specific person/example because we don't really need five pictures of the same thing. I'm sure there's an exception if one picture from the front shows the hanging gut with navel tat and a second photo from the back shows the ass-antlers and camo miniskirt with Ugg-boots -- it's a different view.

If further itemization of what the group seeks is necessary, here are some subjects which are popular... and by no means is this list all-inclusive:

* People wearing pink, or clothing that says "pink" on it. Especially if none of it is the color pink.
* Men with handbags, or whatever the hell they wanna call 'em.
* The sloppy-fat. (Merely being obese isn't enough.)
* Asswriting.
* Amir, the guy in the Speedo who carries a shotput around Venice Beach.
* Lower back tattoos, be they tribal designs or illegible words.
* Lower front tattoos that look like one's crotch has wings.
* Visible thongs and bra-straps. (Blatently so, even through clothes.)
* Muffintops.
* Guys whose shirts don't cover the gut hanging over their belts.
* Candidates for melanoma.
* Impractical clothing or socially questionable outfits.
* Skirts plus rollerskates/inline skates.
* Itsy bitsy teeny weeny unaesthetic-folks-walking-around-in-just-a bikinis
* The LA Dodgers or stupid cat tricks.
* People with the obsessive disorder of collecting rubbish.
* Amusing homeless people [though you will be branded an insensitive jerk for stripping them of their dignity].
* Youth biting the pavement on skateboards.
* Adults pretending to be youth (on skateboards, in dress, etc.).
* People who are constantly on their cell phones during public events. Especially if they're using Bluetooth headsets.
* Uggboots, cowboy boots, and the like in hot weather. Or anytime, actually. Especially with shorts and skirts.
* Flipflops, Crocs, and the like when the activity they're engaged in requires more supportive shoes.
* Bellybutton tattoos.
* Coinslots.
* Little kids on leashes.
* Not-so-little kids dressing like sluts.... Prostitots. This includes midriff henna tattoos, we have discovered.
* Bad park jobs, especially if it involves a gas-guzzling behemoth in a compact parking spot or not-a-parking-spot-at-all.
* Goth kids being alienated by angst, or during weekends anyway.
* Events where there are people or actions which make you stop and go "what the hell?" and/or anything you look at in public that makes you laugh out loud.
* Very poorly punctuated signs or pathetic showings of grammar.
* Anything you see during the day that would merit saying "you'll never guess what I saw today..." followed by a 3 minute description to someone you know and love. (Or total strangers on Flickr.)

What else, esteemed longtime members?

We need to put this in the group description once the list is complete. Plus, "ridiculousness" wants defining, I think wearing heels to go shopping is ridiculous, others don't understand why someone would leave the house sans make up.

So when do we start producing Milo Merchandise? ;-)

You have a point there, Kittster. Let's just call that word a catch-all placeholder for something we can further define but has been described to a great degree by previous entries. :-D

I think there already is Milo merchandise out there. :)

Heels to shop: it's a look. "Cars take me to clothes." - Rita Rudner
No makeup to shop: it's a fact of life, you need stuff at odd hours.

Cippa: Fine by us if folks don't post as long as they're viewing and commenting. You know, same as already happens on M's stream. :)

M: Added, thanks. Now we know a bit more of your photographic philosophy -- that is helpful for shooting when in the wild and for selecting what to share when one gets home.

I love Malingerings photos and comments. I used to live in LA
( Redondo Beach & Torrance )and I get a good laugh when I see the stupid things people wear and do. I haven't posted any pictures yet but I will this fall. We don't really have uggs up here, yes there around but the real fashion footwear is bunny boots, good to -50. I could take pictures at Wal-mart but all Wal-mart people look the same everywhere. To all of you, keep up the comments it brings a chuckle everyday.

Anyone else notice that many new postings to the pool are just view-grubbers?
Maybe I'm a purist but it's getting on my nerves.

TheDamnMushroom Posted 10 years ago. Edited by TheDamnMushroom (admin) 10 years ago
Checkered: We have a system in place for that -- we have plenty of admins (most of which have stayed silent in the last year), amongst which myself who will cut out the crap when I see it, and Look In The Tunk who pays closer attention and has little tolerance for off-topic pictures.

I'll have a look right now and see if what inappropriate for the group's theme "view-grubbers" there are. [later] Looks like we've been keeping the pool pretty clean. I see you had questions about one particular photo or poster, but the image the comment was on totally fit the group. Tramp-stamp, ignoring her friend to text someone else, and a complete "look-at-MEEEEE!!!" outfit? :)

Some people leer, some people gawk. And we gawk here. :)

If there weren't some Mal-ish context, they'd be gone pronto.

Way too many pics of that chick's underwear. I took off all but one of them.

Hmm, they're not interesting in the Malingering sense so don't need to be here. I can't really say about "leering". They seem more like random candid street photography.

I love how it's three pictures of the same girl. I get it, she has jubblies.
Why are the first two in this group? They're completely normal looking young women. Maybe he accidentally clicked "We love Malingering" instead of "xXxYOUNG HOT SEXY TEENAGERSxXx"

I just looked at his groups... Dull list, they're leering but not particularly pornographic or weird (unless one considers taking pictures of unwitting people wrong, which would be hypocritical for a member of We Love Malingering :-D). But hey, at least he's apparently not one of those people who puts up overproduced model photos from the web then acts like they're exclusive photos you have to jump through hoops to see. (I was not aware he'd made me a contact at some point until I went to look at his groups. We have all of one group in common.)

At least we know he's heterosexual.

Can we put in the rules only one picture per 'situation' unless it'd absolutely necessary?

I've noticed recently[past 2 weeks] there are pictures added to the group that are in multiples. I understand giving a front and back view, but I don't need to see three pictures in a row of the same freaking girl or four pictures of the same thong.

Sounds reasonable. I'll add.

Seems like some recent posters don't bother reading the discussions...

TheDamnMushroom 10 years ago
That's true of almost all groups that don't require admin review, when you look around. I have to drop into a group I admin twice a day (mostly because the regulars get up in arms if inappropriate content stays more than 8 hours) since people don't follow the posted rules.

It's alright. If it stays I just continue to troll.

Thanks, Anita. They weren't there late last night.

Two months ago (five posts upstream) I'd said I would add the "no more than 1 of an example" thing to the rules and I did on the group page but, uh, failed to add to the first post of this thread until now. Also added a reference to this thread to the group page.

You're aware that newbs often don't read before posting :) but I like to be able to use the line that my high school librarian always threw out when someone would walk in eating and go under the "No Food Allowed" sign over the security gate: You bumped your head on the sign.

>>Thanks, Anita. They weren't there late last night.<<

They were like on page two or three.

I have my eye on a couple of members here for pictures that border on leering.

Oh, okay. Thought you were implying they were fresh additions. How'd we miss those earlier? :)

Can we lay off the images that aren't originals?

I assume you're addressing that to me. (I figured eventually you'd say something...)
Okay, certainly. Those representative images were for things I'd be writing in the "Ones That Got Away" thread, so hey. :)

Opinion: I left the picture when I saw it yesterday because the subject, a teenager smoking, works in the spirit of Mal's street photography. And truthfully I am surprised that Flickr's police force that has an unwritten rule about underaged smoking photos didn't boot it off the site a week ago.
But, that being said, I recognise that the tags and the other groups that the photo is in are of a different spirit, for leering... If another admin thinks the relevance is outweighed by the rest of the presentation, they have my blessing to remove it. The question wouldn't exist so prominently if it weren't for the tags/groups.
admin
Yeah, I've been constantly deleting their pictures for almost a month now, but for the first time ever there's actually a comment to it that's representative of our "mindset".
All other pictures were "sexy boobs legs asian asians orange tight shirt wife lady ass bum breast breasts thong nipple tit" and were just regular women walking around, usually not facing the camera(boobs how?) with no asians or thongs in view.

Sometimes I feel some members should just be booted.

Haaaa. By calling out on Dosie for posting stupid pictures that have nothing to do with this group in a simple comment, "How does this have anything to do with "We Love Malingering"?" and removing it from our pool, I am now being blocked.
Darn.

Thank you for "taking one for the team" then, C&A. :-D

I think my favorite part about their entire stream is in their profile. "We are Professionals"
Hopefully its not referring to their photography.
Look In The Tunk PRO 9 years ago
There's been times where I've nominated myself and added pictures of my fashion faupaux's to the group. Like yesterday when I was lazy, but I was scheduled to go out to eat with my workstudy boss. So I put on a dress that was a tad too short and I threw on a pair of boots since it was a little cold out and I was laaazy.

Posting those pictures keeps you from being a hypocrite, but I'm wondering if that will send the wrong message to the people who already don't get the message.

Haha I just removed the other two. I just don't think people will ever get it. Also, did you see their tags? It's pretty sad.

Must be new, I don't think they were there yesterday (I think I checked...). Some people never get it. In one group I admin it's right there in the group front page message: No Nudes. And every day some clown posts nudes. I once left a note on a photo saying nudes weren't allowed by group rules, and the poster had the nads to email me back to say he doesn't have time to read group rules.
