Mine are black, to protest against censorship, which is Bad.

As with my Transformerspage, to give the black TF look.

No smut is going to jump up on their screens. You have to actively search
for it. OTOH, what is bad is censorship. Especially trying to censor an
international medium. A net.lover is a completely different thing than a

I don't care at all what people do in, and noone
should. It's their business, and on the net you mind you own business. If
you drag your kids online, then you have to take responsibility for them.
I think I'll put up a page with the images from the perv directory, once
I find them all, just for the Pete of it.

This is quite a fatal blow to freedom and the net. Most of the most-read
groups on the net are in fact groups with either the word "sex" or
"erotica" in them, and the most searched-for word in the Web search
engines are "sex". It isn't their business what people do with their
computers. Hopefully, the saying "Internet interprets censorship as
damage and routes around it.". There are still many countries and servers
from which you may post your pictures and stories, so this will only make
the people it wants ti get to go underground or route around it.
