How can you tell what is obscene though? A couple of years ago I had someone start ranting at me for being obscene because I had said that someone was pissed off. It had never even occurred to me that anyone might consider that to be obscene. It seems to me that it is better to let others deal with their own hang-ups rather than try to police their reading materials for them.
