You may have noticed that the Sex Channel no longer appears in the list of channels in the right hand column on Netscape and that Sex is no longer an option when submitting stories to Netscape. When we first relaunched Netscape back in July, our hopes were that the Sex Channel would be a place where we could discuss issues pertaining to sex and sexuality in the 21st century's ever-shrinking world.
We were naive.
Unfortunately, the Sex Channel became a never-ending nexus of spam and porn. So we've killed the channel entirely, and very soon all the old stories that were submitted to the Sex Channel will disappear and any links out on Google or elsewhere that point you to them will direct you to a page explaining this tale of dreams shattered and innocence lost. Then you'll have a link to the homepage of Netscape where you can find lots of less spammy and less porn-plagued content.
