Actually, I wasn't reacting to that post as much as to the general tone,
which has been getting rather prurient. The only reason that makes me uneasy
is that I don't want us to get bumped into the Adult classification again.
Maybe the only reason that happened is that Tom Pall uploaded some x-rated
photos and then reported to Yahoo that they were there. Maybe Yahoo doesn't
have systems to automatically monitor the content of its groups. But in case
it does, I'm just suggesting that we be a bit cautious.
