...and we host exemplars of everything (short of child porn, I hope).

That we properly host exemplars in a category does not mean that we should
host further examples which are not being used in educational articles on
any of the projects.

Wikipedia is not a web hosting facility for controversial content for the
purposes of hosting anything and everything.  If it's not related to the
projects (encyclopedias, etc) then it doesn't belong here.  We may not
notice or care unless it's offensive, though.
