I was always told to beware of the yellow snow and ice but the Beeb seems to think that it's worth re-iterating.

Code:
When a man grows old and his balls grow cold, 
And the tip of his prick turns blue.
When it bends in the middle like a one-stringed fiddle, 
He can tell you a tale or two.

So pull up a chair and stand me a drink, 
And a tale to you I'll tell,
Of Dead-Eye Dick and Mexico Pete 
And a harlot named Eskimo Nell.

I have personally very thick skin in that regard. There is not much that you can say that I haven't heard before. I have worked with construction crews, dustmen, sailors, and lived with an ex military sailor. It seems that people think I can't handle something, when in fact, I am trying to keep the forum clean enough that it is still family friendly (a goal acknowledge by various super-mods: 1 2 3 4)

BTW, why do you persist in insinuating that my name on the forum is at all connected with something it is not? That is just an ad hominem.

Because you're pretty much the only one to have set himself up as guardian of public morals.

Ok, I'll refrain from that dig from here on.

Others have also spoken up on the issue. In looking over the various national standard for motion pictures, one can see that there are various levels of concern. Looking over them, most have a level above 'Suitable for all audiences' that kicks in at or before age 13, (PG for example from the BBFC, MPAA, CHVRS, ACB, IFCO, OFLCNZ, & FaPB). Outside of the Soapbox, I think that is the level that we should strive to keep. Inside of the Soapbox, the level is higher and has been explicitly stated so.

I am not about to request fig leaves for artwork.

Euphemisms and circumlocutions go along way to keeping things family friendly.
