I’m not a fan of censorship

I’m not a fan of censorship but I am of a fan of decency. ”Be Nice” covers a lot of territory. (decency is more than just, ”Hey, at least I didn’t murder you today”). But since decency may not necessarily be Universal, I offer THIS as a teaching aid to anyone who doesn’t realize that not everybody always wants to see naughty bits or blood or gore or sad pictures or shocking things without a little fair warning. I’m not speaking about Google+ – (there’s no way to warn people here) but in general about Infomercials about sad things, or medical TV shows, or Local TV News (they’re awful about this). I know I can’t change the world, but to anybody who does anything that somebody else may see, at home, on the computer, on TV, please remember this. *If you want to shock, go ahead*, but just KNOW that this is what you are doing and *take ownership* of it. That’s honest.

So perhaps that could be a guideline of life: 1) Be Nice 2) If you can’t be nice, then don’t be Nice but keep being Honest.

and yes, I love this picture – it just also happened to inspired that ”reflection” above.
