Sorta puts one in mind of those typesetters in France and England who
refused to print James Joyce's Ulysses...or Blockbusters Video refusing to
stock videos which the company feels don't measure up to family values
(their family values). This is pretty slippery slope territory.... When
producers and distributors of intellectual content elevate themselves to
the position of guardians of public morality, things start to get pretty
strange.
