    A scientific article titled "Does promiscuity prevent extinction?" (http://www.physorg.com/news186327580.html) and a web facility article titled "Chatroulette offers random webcam titillation - CNN.com" (http://edition.cnn.com/2010/TECH/02/22/chatroulette.random.chat) are being FORCED to "private" (even when the "offensive"!? words in the title are change to "unfaithfulness" and "interest"). Why is this? Will (a non-fig-leafed) image of Michelangelo's David be next? Who would one ask (for permission) to "fix" this?

    Meta page it said "This link has been bookmarked by 2 people. It was first bookmarked on 25 Feb 2010, by someone privately."

    I tried to bookmark it ... it's now public. Everybody see it?

    But now that you've brought my attention to 'censor', I just noticed a bookmark that was set to private ... maybe because the title included 'naked' - but I could easily change it.

    Please add to that topic a note of the URLs that were converted to private.

    Thanks
