When it's something like "is this pedo, " for example, a council member needn't have read every chapter of whatever manga or comic book or novel or fic or whatever to make that decision. A paragraph or a scanned page showing the pedo-stuff should be enough.
Um, no. All you need is a troll or hater cherry-picking the worst scene out of a mostly-non-sexual work and claiming it's representative.
Informed decision-making requires actually being informed, not making one-minute skims of one paragraph. It's especially problematic to do this without even looking to see if there are tropers who have read/watched the whole thing. Of course their descriptions of particular scenes should be fact-checked against the actual work to determine their reliability as sources. But there is no substitute for being familiar with an entire
work and knowing whether it is all about
porn and pedo or merely contains
a little sex here and there.
I think that works with the sole intent of soliciting sexual arousal and nothing else should be cut, but nothing else. Containing sexual content or addressing sexual subject matter shouldn't be grounds for cutting so long as we treat the matters respectfully when we create the article in question.
This, absolutely. Fortunately Fast Eddie has made statements along this line already.
I'm with Vyctorian that this wiki should not demonize sex. However, I would not at all miss porn that is purely porn.
