If an admin feels that a public reflector should contain material that =

second-class simply

Agreed, but, /please/, if a reflector says that nudity isn't allowed, =
respect that. There
is room enough on the net for everyone.

Why should you have to feel shamed? These "socially illiterate" computer =
nerds have created
an environment in which there is room for all. If you want to have =
sexual fun on sex
reflectors, then good for you. That is, after all, what they are there =
for. Insisting that
any public reflector is fair game, though, is pure selfishness. You have =
plenty of space.
What do you need everyone elses for?
