Mr. Friendly's postgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I teach a human sexuality class at a local University. I had planned to print out the "Mr. Friendly" post and use it for a discussion in one of my lectures on sexuality. Was it arhived, or deleted, as I cannot find it? Is the 1st Amendment alive everywhere but here?

Hey, asshole...last time I checked, this was a y2k forum not a sex ed class.

Lisa, I can't imagine what employer would keep paying you. You are obviously not gainfully employed to spend so much time reading these posts.

I didn't want to rehash the debate, can someone just tell me if that particular post was archived or deleted, please?
-- Professor (email@example.com), September 22, 1999.
IT WAS DELETED

Obviously The very idea that western woman might have to humble herself as the 3rd world women have for centuries, was to painful to tolerate thinking about. The SYSOP community are thought police.

[Part of a post from a necrophilia website's message broad. The author is refering a story that mentions Y2K.]
Bravo, *****, its a masterpiece!...the mention of the fact that in Y2K it will be apparently "sporting" to engage in snuffing beauties gives me a number of ideas. The story characters and possibilities that it brings to mind are stimulating to the 'nth' degree. Love it , need it wanna see more....LOL

Professor, these are hosted premises, with sysops volunteers acting as our community standards board. The First Amendment assures us of freedom of speech. Well, everyone said what they wanted to. It doesn't assure us of having our message hosted and served by others into perpetuity. The thread wasn't offensive exactly, but it was gratuitious. That people will be stressed to the max in all directions is a given. What that has to do with sexuality per se is kinda tenuous, IMHO.
