Ok, enough on nudity. We can't solve that problem here. I personally don't
want "internet police" and "mind control" stuff going on, so I know no way
to cap technology once the cat is out of the bag. Private reflectors, like
private phone lines forty years ago, and 1:1 connections are the only answers.

As for me, I am going to instruct Eudora's filter facility to send any
message from this list with "nudity" in its title directly to the trash
where it belongs.

Every society, and every culture, has its own norms for what constitutes
"nudity". Have you seen the tribes in Niu Guinea? Have you been to the
beaches in Rio de Janeiro? Have you turned on the soaps on TELEVISION
lately??? Yee-gad.
