While I'm patient to let mods reveal as much or as little about the reasoning for certain cuts at their leisure, I will point out that there are completely rational business
reasons for cutting such examples.
Basically, there are two things that can, on the business side, cause havoc. One is that a page that ends up with too much NSFW material can start tripping content filters - and those filters can frequently cause an entire site to be blocked just because of one page that is deemed by the software to be "over the line." In order to ensure the widest possible readership, it behooves the staff to make sure that doesn't happen.
Two, ad servers can pick up on content that is over the line and start putting advertisement for materials that the leaders of the site object to for any reason (which may include the ads causing the above-cited problem). In order to prevent that, Fast Eddie and co. would reasonably move to prevent that issue.
Keep in mind, of course, that this kind of thing isn't mere conjecture; the site has had well-known issues in the past related to objectionable ads causing mass blockages. Due to that, it's not only a reasonable explanation, I think it's the most
reasonable explanation. So I personally will assume that the decision was made for these reasonable business decisions until otherwise notified, and I think it's in the best interest of everyone to make a similar assumption for this case (unless the mods feel like going into more detail as to whether that's right or not).
