Commons is not censored.  It's a beautiful scene and it would be expected that the an imaginary tribal member would not have the American sensitivities to toplessness.  Some images may offend.  Some articles may offend.  We're not going to compromise our core values just to try to close a "gap" that some feel is such a big issue, if it even exists.

Surely I'm not the only one who noticed this lovely gem of a photo of the day today. In my work environment - NFWS.

Direct link to image:

I mean really? /facepalm

This is the kind of imagery I have no desire to see on the front page of Commons. I'm a very liberal person, but, this makes me not want to even allow my MOTHER to use Commons.
