What is Pron?
Years ago, several of our members were getting blocked from viewing this site from work. They were getting messages that it contained 'inappropiate content'. Back then, just as it is now, we had a lot of thread titles(and postings) that contained the work PORN when referring to 'food porn'. Corporate scanners were picking that up and labeling us as and Adult website. Search engines also use scoring systems to determine topic and content and the frequency of word use is part of that system. So, in order to avoid search engines, indexing bots and corporate scanners from misinterpereting our site and mislabeling us an adult site, we adopted the word 'pron' to replace the evil 'P" word in our thread tiles and posts.

On another note this site is awesome, and I am thankful to have it as a resource
Well to give you idea what happened when you spell pron the right way - on my website it is spelled the right way and you'd be surprised what people search for to find me. I shudder to think of what "swine pron (spelled correctly)" they were looking for.

Or the word PHOTO or PICS would solve the issue.
