Has it occurred to you that we could simply _age-rate_ articles, rather than delete them? An article on a pornographic novel could be 18-rated, just like the novel itself. Same with porn star bios, which aren't likely to be of interest to 9-year-olds. I would really like people to understand that when entering Wikipedia with an "adult" setting, you would never know any difference to how it is now. But if you're entering with a 12-year-old setting, you would not see the article on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hogg_(novel) for example. What is so bad about that idea? Is it "censorship" to show adult-rated material to adults, but not to 12-year-olds? Framing this in terms of "gutting" or "censoring" Wikimedia projects completely misses the point.
