    they didn't upload pictures to stackoverflow, but to gravatar.com, but those pics looks ok for me, :D, you can flag one of their post, and inform moderator about that, btw. – YOU Mar 7 '11 at 14:51

    @haim good question. There is a definition from a justice of the U.S. supreme court that I like very much (paraphrasing): "It's impossible to define, but I know it when I see it" – Pekka Mar 7 '11 at 14:55

    How do we get them to do it more? ;) – Bill the Lizard Mar 7 '11 at 15:02

I guess you would have to report offending Gravatars to Gravatar directly. I expect they do some form of basic content filtering anyway .

If you ask me, though, none of these images can be classified as even remotely pornographic by most today's standards. Advertising on any western TV station or magazine will show more arousing imagery.
