You actually believe this?

Blacklisting all spam and PORN is appropriate and the 'right' politically
correct thing to do.  Spam and Porn (Sporn), I believe, should both be
classified as the same garbage.  Sporn has been an on going 'real world'
problem for many many years and will continue to be so.
