A peripherally related story: I had a web designer job at a tiny IT firm just out of college, and we did pro bono work for the city's Catholic diocese, maintaining their website. The technology chair was looking for sites to link to, and while looking for CYO-type sites (Catholic Youth Organization), he typed in something to the effect of catholicteens.com. Oh, my. It was THAT kind of site. It was apparently VERY explicit, and he was appalled. He came to us and asked...
