+flask Posted July 14, 2007 Share Posted July 14, 2007 (edited) ok, folks. some of the other threads got me to thinking: if each cacher trashes out what he or she finds offensive or generally inappropriate, what's left in the cache? i do not wish to have a debate here, but simply for you to note which items on the list of cache contents you would remove as inappropriate. as the list dwindles, i'll re-post with the changes. DIRECTIONS -read the list. -decide which single item seems to you to be the most inappropriate. -post the one item to this thread. please do not editorialize; there are at least two open threads where people are editorializing. if you feel that i've missed some common or worrisome cache contents, please feel free to send me a message and i'll add it to the list. my list is by no means exhaustive and if you have in mind items that are either appropriate or inappropriate, they should be included. if you feel an item is offensive to you and you don't want to be publicly identified, you may contact me and i'll post your entry anonymously. it is my hope that the most worrisome or offensive items will leave the list first.
