Not talking about important problems does not make them go away. It only saves the problems for a later day. We need free and open discussions of all aspects of the human condition to understand how we can live in space.

We do need to work with our students and support them in a safe place. Perhaps the adult material belongs in another wiki altogether.

Personally, I am liberally minded, however, there is extreme legal liability. Posting obscene material can get you (or others) prosecuted in some jurisdictions. The definition of what is "obscene" varies widely in different jurisdictions. This wiki can be accessed by anybody anywhere in the world, so could run afoul of local regulations and laws. Because of such concerns we have deleted items which look to be at risk of violating obscentiy laws in ANY jurisdiction. The risk to too great, e.g. a schoolteacher in USA is currently facing a 40 year jail term for inadvertently exposing students to obscenity.
If a person is convicted as a "sex offender" this stays with you for the rest of your life and becomes a public record.
This wiki is completely open and we do not have an way of restricting access to adults only at this time. This might be an enhancement which might be added in the future, talk to MikeD about that.Charles F. Radley 06:37, 4 March 2007 (PST)
