	Personally I think it was a poor decision to delete the post. Please note that
I do not say that it was wrong to delete the post, I do not think I can tell
people what is wrong or right. But if that post was really inappropiate, then a
lot of people would have complained using the moderator e-mail form, and of
course Fernando would have read them and perhaps agree to delete it, after
reading the reactions of CCC members in those e-mails.
	By the way, I do not mind dirty jokes. In fact, for me the dirtier the better.
But I realize that this is not the place to post them. Unfortunately, the
Spanish version of the joke was also deleted before I could read it. All this
scandal about it just feeds my curiosity. If somebody saved it (and/or the
English version) I would appreciate to receive them in my Inbox.
