One other thing. I'll try to make this last that I mention this unpleasant issue here, but it seems that the last time around, some people didn't really get the message. If you had any question about the type and amount of pornography on Wikipedia, read this article or at least search on the page for "Clearly, it is hard to know what is pornographic and what is not..." http://thecuttingedgenews.com/index.php?article=12106 You won't see the pictures but you'll get a rather graphic description of a few pictures. And that is, I assure you, just a few of very many. Meanwhile, we have the spokesman for the Wikimedia Foundation telling AFP, puzzlingly, "Our community abhors issues around pornography and pedophilia and they don't want to provide opportunities for these things to take place." http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20100428/tc_afp/usitinternetcrimesexwikipedia If they don't want to provide opportunities for these things to take place, they sure have a funny way of showing it. Or, who knows, maybe this was an announcement that they're changing their policy... --Larry Lawrence M.
