Subject: [Leica] Set of standards for Lug web space project......

I've kept quiet on this issue so far as I've wanted to get a sense of the 
Lug's feelings.  

I think the issue that really needs to be discussed in this matter is if 
there is going to be a set of standards for images submitted to the LUG 
www page and what those particular standards are.

Leica itself has had inappropriate material in it's gallery.  I have 
chosen not to view Fransesco's pages as I have already  heard enough on 
the LUG to decide that it would be inappapropiate for me to do so.

For rather obvious reasons, I don't want to tell all of my friends from 
churches in the states to look at my images on the lug page if there are 
other even remotely questionable images on the site.   Scripture tells us 
not to have even a hint of sexual immorality.  

You don't have to agree with my position to understand the Biblical 
reasoning behind it.

Before this gets any farther in the planning stage, I think the Lug 
membership should devise a set of standards for images posted on the site 
and vote on it.  Those who disagree with the standards can choose whether 
or not to participate.  

I realize that setting up image standards can be a rather divisive 
process.   Depending on the set of standards, Francesco and others may 
find that some of their images do not qualify for the LUG web page and 
Francesco may withdraw his offer  to support the page.  If there are 
little or no standards as to the content issue, I and others will choose 
not to participate.
