<yawn...> Please don't bring this tired old argument up; so what if a writer
decides to post something blatantly pornographic? Morally aprehensible,
maybe, but let's not start implying that the writer is irresponsible by
posting snippets from the completely biased and generally clueless media. If
there's someone who is unbalanced enough to start acting out stories he
reads, he ought to have been put in a padded cell long ago.
