You are right !

Ever looked at European TV ? Sex all over the channels.

Ever been at a sex shop in Holland.

Ever been to a news stand in Germany, France, Italy, Holland or whatever.
Looked at all the pornographic magazines there. Your kids can also look at them.

Kids are over here sexually educated at the age of 12 at schools.
Most off the time they already know about it even earlier.

Now what is all the fuss about ?

Now let me put a thought here.

If you're kids are under a certain age, they do not know what it is about
and they probably do not care.
If they are at the age that they do KNOW what is going on
no harm is done either, because they know what it is about.

Kids will never think that something is wrong, unless someone tells them.
There is nothing wrong or dirty with sex.
That is only in YOUR mind.

But a reflector is owned by someone. He/she (the owner) has rights because
he/she is paying for it, and we are *not*.
So if the reflector owner does not want exhibitionism he must have the right
to reject this, and we have to listen to what he/she wants.
Otherwise go to a different reflector.


CU-SeeMe users looking for reflector IP adresses?
My reflector list can be found (amongst a lot of good Mac related
and other stuff) on
Look at the columns section.
