I'm not sure where you got these ideas.

When I saw Fernando's post it was immediately obvious that if I left it, the
next morning there would be at least one email from a member complaining about
the post.  The complaint would suggest that that kind of post didn't belong in
the group.  It would ask that the post be deleted.  It would express confusion
as to why anyone would think that such a post belonged here.  And this person
might reply to the post, expressing similar sentiments in the group, etc.

I don't think that it is too strict to say that CCC shouldn't become the dirty
joke forum, is it?
