Are questions requesting that pornographic films be identified on-topic here?

I don't think we should allow questions about pornographic movies here, for one simple reason: They don't meet the quality standards of content we discuss on this site. I think the same argument ...

I doubt that technical restrictions will force an unwilling user to write more elaborate questions. They are more likely to just bypass the restriction (e.g. by adding useless text until the minimum ...

What question or answer that you have posted to the main site are you most proud of
