    What is the offensive part? The word porn or the topic of hiding files?
    ^^^ this
    plus, porn could mean pictures of yourself.
    You talk about taking a stand. But then you want censorship instead? No thanks. we all have freedom of speech and you should be ashamed to ask anyone to relinquish their right to it.
    you said your piece and that is your right. now I said mine.

    I feared we would see something like this about this blog post:

    Rachelle Wilde goes hands on and shirt off with the BlackBerry Z10 (Slightly NSFW) | CrackBerry.com

    I would have thought that would have caught your displeasure more than this post.

    I feel like it's a free site and if it gets to wild I will go elsewhere, but I don't think someone should decide what I or anyone else can and can't see. The Crackberry team is here to make a profit in the end and the market will reward or punish them based on what they deliver.

    I was wondering how long it would take before the words "Freedom of Speech", and "censorship" would creep into the discussion. I am entitled to my opinion, and am hardly forcing it down anyone's throats (poor choice of words) because that would imply that I am in a position where I can.
    Maybe asking for an apology was a poor way to make my point and has got peeps' knickers in knots, but seriously, chill dudes/dudettes. Is it possible to have reasoned debate without the hate? Sure, I'm entitled. Entitled to have an opinion.

    somewhat agree with OP. Post was fine - could have done without the picture. I get that it was heavily censored. I even smile at the use of the gingerbread man - It introduced a new genre of porn to me. But pic was NSFW and not safe for around the kitchen table with family around. A little more discretion would have seemed reasonable.

    Wait.....WHAT?!?!?!? You're telling US to chill????? Remember this?!?!?

    The ability to hide your porn now requires an app on BlackBerry 10 | CrackBerry.com

    Yeah, well I've been told to lighten up with respect to my comment about this post. Here's the thing...I can't. This site is frequented by people of different races, creeds, religions, ages, and sensibilities. I've been on this site for quite a few years and seen a lot of edgy stuff and really appreciate it but this is over the top and I want the site admins to take it down and apologize. I've watched this site grow over the years to a one-stop fountain of knowledge about all things BlackBerry. It's also a place where, with few exceptions, people are respectful of one anothers' opinions even when they disagree.

    Part of having certain standards is making a stand. You see, it's part of the word itself, isn't it? This site has to reach for a higher standard than it did in its early days because its reaching a larger audience than it did back in the day.

    So, It offends me, yes. Does it make me a prude? I don't think so. I'm writing this because I care.
    Amazing..................

    Well don't you think you should have started a debate on wether topics like this should or should not be posted first instead of demanding for the post to be taken down and apologized for?

    There is nothing to take down and apologize for until the general opinion is in agreement with your views.

    Ok here's the thing. Those that agree with OP are going to continue to agree, and those that disagree are going to continue to disagree - regardless of what's posted here. Everyone has something that pushes his or her buttons. Where's that pic of "beating a dead horse"...?

    What a drama queen.

    Do you also complain about every sexualized advertisement, movie, tv news, other blogs out there,,?

    Mind explaining how does it offend you?

    Decent point. I guess my avatar could be generalize the same way. topless man (i am wearing pants!) is different than three girls in a sex act.

    I usually agree with Chris on a lot of things, BUT the general impression of this title in particular is that he is actually trying to be a little sarcastic and implement that anyone needing to hide "items" on the BB are those needing to hide porn. I personally feel he could have used a different title and used say a "Top Secret" document such as from the board game Top Secret. Once again this is only my personal opinion.

    PS. I have a mess load of porn on my phone but I could care less if anyone sees them. Except for the Donkey / Midget porn.

    I have no problem with the picture, that's the full blooded male talking, but to start a post and try to force us to apologize for anything or remove a post that has nothing to do with you is a problem, if you were a shareholder of the Site, then by all means, but last I remember Kevin, blaze and others run this motherboard so if you don't like it, then look away

    my vote is keep everything the way it is. the cb team can continue to post anything they like, and they can use as much seriousness or humor that they want with their free site.

    I found the post very helpful. Blackberry does not always inform us of changes like this ahead of this, so I depend on the posts and forums to inform us of findings. Bla1ze I loved the post laughed the whole time.

    keep up the great work everyone!

    I wonder if the OP writes letters to commercial companies or talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel when they make something appear dirty as a joke. If not, how did we get so lucky to receive one?

    Your pants must be quite low since there isn't even a waistband in view.

    Shouldn't there be an "after dark" type subforum for those interested in this kind of thing (maybe there is I wouldn't need it and haven't searched - and if there is that's where this kind of post belongs no?). I believe I remember Jerry on AC saying there was one over there. I am sure those who need to know how to hide their porn would know to go there and search out Blaze then it's out of the sight lines by those who are offended by it.

    It didn't bother me but I do admit to an "oh my" when I read it, and then just brushed it off for the times we live in. Not sure that's the right reaction in fairness. I am pretty sure the CrackBerry guys knew when it got up there they would hear about it. I guess they decided to go with it anyway. I just think there are better ways to do it, don't you want everyone possible to read this site? Why offend when you most likely knew it would, and there is a work around this?

    My humble opinion - it is what it is.
