For the past week, I've been torn about a decision. I would like to post a few photos from the World Naked Bike Ride on Earth Day in San Francisco but I am also cognizant of the fact the Google Adsense takes punitive action against "mature content" -undefined- on sites where its ads appear (or on sites where its bots believe "mature content" may appear).
