Discussion--TFS's posting policy about DRUGS
I'm confused as to why some posts that reference dangerous drugs are being deleted?

Is there an in depth writing of TFS's policy regarding drugs, I can't seem to find it?

So a comment like: "Don't smoke crack, it's bad for you" is considered drug talk?

Are pictures of people taking drugs permitted? Because I've seen some pictures posted, and I reported them but they're still there.

Do you mean drugs in terms of prescription medications or any abusive substances? Because if you mean any type of abusive substances, I believe conversation, pictures, and any references to alcohol and cigarettes should be banned. There are numerous threads about smoking models and favorite kinds of alcoholic drinks that should be deleted if there is a strict policy on drug talk.

Yes, because it invites replies like, 'No, it isn't...'

Alcohol? I thought this was the fashion spot not the monks' chillout pad...

I think more frank and open discussion of smack would raise the tone of the forum.

YES! This is absolutely against policy. It must have been an oversight.
Would you mind PMing me with a link to the photos please for removal?

Foxie Pooh - I think you can draw the line at illegal substances and abuse of prescriptive meds

Well...it is a "drug" so according to the no drug talk rule, it should not be allowed, unless exceptions are made. Maybe we should just slap on the Surgeon General's warning on the threads relating the issue

Caffeine is a drug. It's more addictive than cocaine, which is probably why Coke removed the latter from their eponymous soft beverage... because they worked out it just wasn't as efficient.

So no Cola or Latte for TFS. (Or love, if Bryan Ferry is to be believed.)

I'm a little confused as to WHY we can't...even though I dont do drugs, I do feel it has a strong presense within fashion (and can explain many fashionista's problems) but if we can discuss drugs, I mind you we have many threads about sex, some of which include pornographic images...do keep in mind there are children here
