+ - Ask Slashdot: How do I handle people posting really hardcore material to my site

It just dawned on me that people might (ok, let's change that to "would") post X rated material all over this thing as well as gory stuff. Since it's going to be crowdsourced, how do I handle such a thing? I don't necessarily mind softer stuff, but I'd have to filter it for younger users somehow..

Do you also plan to pay for food with money that turns to shit within a day?

See, the thing about analogies ...

I skip multiple steps altogether. Just gather all the items in your grocery cart and dump them in the toilet at the store. Don't pay, don't digest, and don't shit!! Its going to end up in the toilet anyway. This way you eliminate at least two middle men!

Some ads are indeed a work of art, like the car ad with the rube goldberg machine made from pieces. But I don't remember which company it was for, and don't particularly care about what's it advertising.

That would be Honda. The ad is called "Cog"
