I am in agreement with BGSU Firelands. Sometimes censorship is a good thing, because some people lack good judgement. For instance, I was enjoying this Wednesday's Funcoast Magazine with cool Easter activities to enjoy with my children.

That is until I got to the back and saw the "Spotted" photos.

I thought, who in their right mind would put a picture displaying an inappropriate gesture where children could see it? This is not the first time such a photo appeared, I've just waited until now to voice my opinion. If you want to take such photos, fine, but put them on your Internet page for people who are choosing to look at them. My children and I don't want to look at other people's tasteless or embarassing photos. Just because people use bad judgement and don't care what the whole world sees, doesn't necessarily mean the world wants to see it!

Some of your "Spotted" photos need to be kept for private access. We want to see the heart-warming, family/community photos (you know, the ones that don't sell papers, but are appropriate for everyone).

Thank you for letting me voice my opinion in this matter. Even if it does not make the reader's forum, please make sure the people who do the "Spotted" photos read this before you delete it.
