  • I will come. I found out only recently that there is pornography on Wikipedia. Pornography is a big industry, it doesn't need support of a charity. I believe that nor pornography or violence should be imposed on children. They have to to make a free choice on whether to be involved in pornography or violence. The fact of life is that those who face violence when they are young think that violence is OK, those who face pornography think that it's norm. It's not right that children should face pornography on educational project, it distructs them from education. Natkabrown (talk) 08:06, 6 May 2012 (UTC) PS. I want the woman in wiktionary:ru:женщина dressed. I have changed the picture in the past, but she is still naked. I connect to the word from my wiki and I have to figure out what shall I do so she is dressed for my students of Russian. Do you have any tips? I know that nakedness has nothing to do with pornography, but I think that there is more to woman as the naked body and the naked body distructs my students from the remembering the word in Russian and distructs them from learning Russian.[reply]
    • Natka I am pulling out of this per my email but would like to organise a forum where these issues can be discussed in a structured and productive way. All the very best. Peter Damian (talk) 10:19, 7 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]

  • I might just get to this one, but no promises! Thryduulf (en.wikt,en.wp,commons) 22:03, 6 May 2012 (UTC)[reply]
