Well, to be honest, it is not like there were any XXX movies available to rent from Netflix at anytime in their history? So, what if Billy knows that Joe likes to watch the Rugrats? I'm watching the X-Files (all seasons) right now, and I still do not see how that is too big of a concern to my privacy; however, I understand the FTC's side of the issue. Their job is to ensure a neutral/private communication stream for the mass, and that is something I fondly believe in. If that means even Netflix has to be stopped then so be it.

I'm not sure about XXX, but Netflix DID, indeed, have adult titles.  I've been a member since '00.  As late as mid '01, Netflix had quite a good number of Girls Gone Wild DVDs.  I rented Totally Nude Aerobics.  Maybe not XXX, but they had videos that offered gynecological views of the nanny-nanny.

Uh, I tried a search, and there's no Girls Gone Wild showing up. Either
we are getting a different list of results or you are dreaming.

'Didn't mean to imply that these were still available.  They're obviously not.  The *WERE* available back in '00 and '01.

Not GGW, but similar category.

Hey, I did not know this. I had read, when I first signed up, that Netflix didn't want to offer XXX-rated material due to a company policy decision on it; however, if you say they have Girls Gone Wild dvd's then I can't argue with that. "Goes to search it now"
