Wow... sounds like xHamster has decided to punish the victims! Instead of supporting their user community when they are under attack, xHamster thinks its smart to pile on and add insult to injury. Dumb asses. I will be avoiding xHamster in the future.

Disagree, I think that xHamster believes (rightly in my opinion) that most of its NC audience are right wing closet cases who support the new law.

Could be, but I doubt they will change their viewpoint because one of many porn sites is no longer available in NC. However mainstream companies refusing to move to NC or increase their current footprint in NC will be far more effective. Nothing pisses people off more than losing current or potential employment because of an outdated 20th century political position. Like all those city and state governments that are banning government travel to NC, this is merely a stunt to get their name in the paper. How many Ft Lauderdale city employees were traveling to NC on gov business... and if it was a lot, what the fuck were they doing there anyway???

@mattr I agree it's not a big deal or even a gesture that will have much effect, but I wouldn't boycot them for doing so. I agree that most of the travel bans are publicity grabs (not sure I'd call them stunts, but whatever). The decision of the Navy to move the commissioning ceremony of the USS Portland from MS to OR after the mayor of Portland refused to go to MS is the only one that I've seen that has a serious effect.

The Navy moving a commissioning ceremony is a very important gesture although it is probably costing a boatload (pun intended) of tax money to move the ship from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific simply for a ceremony. Couldn't they have found a port in another state on the Gulf or the east coast (Virginia for example)? I certainly hope the Portland is a Panamax ship and was not built to New Panamax standards since AFAIK the work on the canal expansion is not yet complete.

 

BTW, my boycotting of use of xHamster is about as useless as it gets since I would be surprised if I visited the site more than 5 or 6 times a year. :eek:

@mattr my reading of it is that the ceremony will be in late 2017 so I suspect it will be fitted into the normal operations of the ship, and perhaps she will be in service before the official ceremony.

 

The canal expansion will likely be completed by then so in this rare instance we can honestly say, size won't matter...
