Actually, the second item was the static shot for that video, which
didn't offer any context for the video itself.  I was told the video
itself was intended to be a joke about NSFW videos, although it wasn't
funny or that appropriate for our Planet.

I didn't mean to be unecessarily coy about the particular details of
this case.  This kind of material has made it to the planet in several
other previous instances, and I didn't want to point fingers at anyone
in particular if we haven't made some clear examples of what's
inappropriate.  We try to rely on common sense, but individual and
cultural differences do exist, so I hope spelling out those examples
will help.
