HN has no ban on porn that I'm aware of; erotica has been upvoted and no doubt will be again.

HN is for what's intellectually interesting—not the other kinds of interesting.


I see no contradiction between being pornographic and being intellectually interesting.

The intersection of the two might be ok, but not the set-difference.

Well sure. It's always been a question of things in the intersection, with politics as well.

(While you're here I'll remind you about turning off flagging on some overly-politicised stories that were being flagkilled earlier this year - if you're worried about HN becoming overly political then that sent the opposite message)

I'm sure we do send opposite messages sometimes, because there are contradictory concerns.
