Just tap the icon and hold your finger, then (depending on the launcher you've got on your Acer) you'll be able to move it - just move to the X spot or you'll get a menu popup with edit/delete option. Hope this helps!

Hello,

I would not recommend you to use public proxy servers because:

1) They are not secure and everything you transmit through them will be available to 3rd parties including your personal details, passwords, credit card numbers - just too much risk.
2) They are slow and unreliable, 95% chance you won't be able to download a lot through them.

VPN is a better solution in your case (google "paid vpn") however I assume that your billing address is in UK and it would be logical for the site owners not to let anyone in with UK credit card (if they block IP addresses from UK already). Just my 2c

Capn I know exactly what your problem is as we had issues with other users from your country and another neighbor island. Don't want to explain all details how billing and fraud detection work but to them you look like a guy from another country and not UK/GB hence it looks like a fraud attempt. They don't care that your place is a part of UK as they get different country code when check your IP for fraud and reject your subscription.

Now we had the same problem with one member few months ago and here's what happened: most of the sites use one geoip database provider for fraud checking that allow to check for country, city and ISP for given IP. Befor that member was detected as a person from UK and since his card's issuer was a UK bank everything went fine. After release of newer version of that DB his IP wasn't in UK any more but showed up as JE (Jersey) and of course country codes didn't match (UK <>JE) he was rejected. In our case I had to call the bank we use for our merchant account (we use one along with Epoch and CCbill) and they made necessary changes almost instantly and member re-joined the next day.

In your case you need to write to CCBill, let them know about your failed transaction (exact time, email and etc) and explain what has happened and ask them to make necessary changes in their fraud screening. If you need a quick porn fix you can always re-join WeAreHairy.com as we're always happy to any customers from any country, yours included

True, as full moon date changes every month. Me personally feel more energetic during the full moon so I guess your theory is true.

Cap'n.


You're right But content piracy or copyrights violation is crime in every country, plus ICANN (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icann) is USA company that controls all top level domains... no need to tell you what they can do.

Piracy is inevitable, it always was and always will be. However now we're living like in the Wild West because the extent of piracy is absolutely ridiculous, mostly because laws were written for the old times but it is changing now.

As for freeloading - we're all freeloaders, it's a part of human nature. Who minds getting something for free? Say you're a car dealer and want to offer me or anybody else a new car for 30k or just give it away for free... guess what would I choose If I take for free will it make me a freeloader? Probably. But the thing is that nobody offers free cars so we have to work hard to buy them or otherwise just use the bus. If I can't get a movie for free I'll read a book from the local library or spend time some other way.

Conclusion: Piracy allows people to possess something that under normal circumstances they would never have, and it's not because they are freeloaders but because they have a choice of getting something for free that they gladly use

A lot of people (even really good persons) would choose to steal, kill, rape, etc and it's only laws/police stop them from doing that and turn into a good members of society.

BUT! There will be no more "FREE" any more soon, check this out http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN1828922520101118

Internet is complete mess now and old laws were written for old internet. Now it's time for more strict regulations no matter if we like them or not, they are required. Everybody hate speed limits or road rules but imagine what would've happened if we didn't have them at al?! Same deal with Internet now.

I guess later next year we'll see a lot of big pirate sites like going down because DOJ is generally very prompt when it comes to action. Time will tell...

No worries!
I've already told our content editor to leave more of the "clothed" part of the shoot when editing pictures. Usually a "proper" site supposed to do content selection and editing, as a typical photographer sends a set of 200-250 pics so most of the times it's up to a content editors to decide what part to delete and what to put online, some guys put all pics which is not good, some put only naked and so on. I'd say this striptease issue depends on editors much more than on the actual photographers

EU and US photographers have got different styles and I can't disagree with that but at the same time I don't have any prejudices against certain country.
It's very hard to please everyone cause at the same time we receive numerous requests from other members about adding more US girls. You are right at some point about "more American Models, this usually means pretty unimaginative photography" but as I said it has to do with particular models and/or photographers. We're against boring and unprofessional shoots and do our best to handpick the best updates on the site and I think good content is always a good content, no matter in what country it was shot.
