I don't want to sound like an anti-bonking old fuddy-duddy, but I understand CZ has a 'family-friendly' policy so we have to self-censor to filter out the details... perhaps this could be rewritten to reflect that? John Stephenson 01:59, 13 March 2007 (CDT)

Fair enough, I removed the part on him anally raping trespassers in his garden. I think that should do it, though admittedly the article is "PG-13" (but how could it not be?) --Rob Glass 11:05, 13 March 2007 (CDT)
You could say 'sodomised'. Or maybe that's just as bad? John Stephenson 20:15, 13 March 2007 (CDT)
Given that it is currently unlinked and, in its current manifestation does not meet the family-friendly criterion, why not just delete it for now? It's short anyway and could be recreated without too much trouble.Pat Palmer 20:53, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

Surely, I think, we'll be able to edit an article about a topic in Classics so as to be consistent with a robust interpretation of our family-friendliness policy. Surely we won't be deleting all articles regarding sex organs and fertility gods; we'll just be writing them in a way so that most parents will feel reasonably comfortable with their children viewing them. Perhaps it's a lost art, like the use of euphemisms? --Larry Sanger 23:29, 4 April 2007 (CDT)

I just hope that there isn't some sort of problem with the image in the article (as far as image policy, I think it's ok; I mean what it shows). --José Leonardo Andrade 13:19, 7 April 2007 (CDT)
