Right, this is a more extreme case.  It actually happened, too, last year, and
there have been other posts of this nature.  Sometimes it is obvious that a post
should go away.

Ok, you are now reading the group, and you come across a post in a thread by
itself, which relates to positions for intercourse.  Almost certainly this is
going to get complaint by reasonable people.  Almost certainly this is going to
make some people pretty mad, mad enough to complain via email and/or respond
with a flame.  I think it is pretty clear that this needs to go as well.
