I knew this was a rat-hole and the subsequent digest proved me to be correct :-).
I'm now on the plus side of 60 and the lack of information when I was young was a disaster. So I view the idea of censoring the content as an anathema. Please go read a book called "Harmful to Minors" (http://www.upress.umn.edu/Books/L/levine_harmful.html) for the US experience.... I hope Australia is doing better! And see http://www.nvsh.nl/english/index.htm The schools will manage it anyway - so why go in circles here. Let's promote WP for the great knowledge vehicle it is. Cheers, Richard.
