Many of us are annoyed by such featuring.
This is not about "content being hosted" we all agree that sexual
images belong to commons, this is about main page.

But beyond that, what could we do in order to prevent it?

Create a policy that forbids sexual images being featured?
Have the Foundation pass a resolution?
Talk it on the pump?

Or perhaps, getting more people involved on the community selection process.

Other ideas?
