you forget people will see a doctor and mention it in off-topic either way. this is a web forum designed to aid/help people where ever. if you can give free porn, why not give someone some background information on things they may not realize is potentially hazardous. I've been reading a lot of posts about people asking (myself included) for information on certain procedures and such. Like i said before, people are going to ask/talk about it no matter what, might as well make it organized, it's going to take up the same amount of space as it would anywhere else in OT.
For the person mentioning lawsuits, SHO could have been taken to court many times over. It gives people means and know how to revamp cars, disassemble emissions, disabling safety features on vehicles, street racing, questionable porn, porn to minors, drug chats, copyright infringment all over the forums, etc. What would the difference be in giving someone information that is of good value?
