My Opera's Achilles Heel

"Oh look at the shiny new car daddy!!"
"Yes Amy, that's Bobby Jones' Jaguar. It sure is a beauty".
"Goodness daddy...what is that??"
"Let me get my glasses...I see it now.That's Mr. Smith's penis. He's really quite proud of it although I'm not sure why.It's not very big."
"Is that why Mrs. Smith is so mean??"
"He likes to show his penis to all the kids at the park."
"yeah, I've heard he likes to go off half-cocked"
I thought it would be great if the Latest Photos feed were run differently so kids would not be exposed to pictures of a certain nature so I posted a possible solution in the the forums. Unfortunately, the thread was immediately siezed upon by a troll. This member (I use the word with a slight chuckle) had over 20 million posts to his 'credit' and was adamant that adults who didn't want their kids to see Mr Smith's penis need to grow up. His mindless drivel prompted one reader to ask why those with the least to say seemed to talk the most. No one in a postion of responsibility within My Opera offered any opinion except to lock the thread down.
Surely there has to be a way that we can have the best of both worlds here. There are pictures people would like to share with other adults but would rather not have seen by children. However, given My Opera's reluctance to address the issue I guess we'll never know...oh, gotta go, Mrs Smith is at the door.
