Thanks to everyone who responded to my censorship post. Although I barely replied to any of the topics, I did take a long time reading everything and weighing all the arguments.

I think the best thing to do is basically just "cover my ass" by stating that there will be offensive material on Tabulas. I have added a short TOS to the registration page; I'll make it more "legally binding" or whatever in the future if I can ever afford a lawyer to do that type of stuff.

However, I haven't decided how to handle offensive images short of simply deleting them. I'm thinking of setting up an abuse team that'll handle complaints; the process will probably be slow, but it'll be better than nothing. I'll probably set-up the abuse team sometime within in the next week.

. . .

It's nice to be appreciated for some of the stuff I do ... :)

Good gah man, you've become quite the celebrity! I feel like I'm friends with the big and powerful now.

Heh, I'm gonna try to visit the Triangle one more time before I move west. We should do one last K&amp;W.

Roy, you are most definitely appreciated for creating this wonderful space. It is my first and only online journal and I can't say enough good things about it.

I am also thrilled at the promptness with which you handle problems. Thank you so much! :)

Regarding your abuse team, have you considered the guidelines by which they would follow?
