After much thought, I have removed the NC17 stories (i.e. those with explicit scenes of violence or sexual encounters) from this site. The primary reason for this is that I am a Christian, and while I am by no means a perfect person, it has long bothered me that site visitors can read those stories on a site that I maintain.
I hope that all of the site's visitors can respect that this is something I feel like I have to do.
To the authors of those stories, please know that this is not directed against anyone. I very much appreciate your contributions to the site. If you would like for me to send your stories to you, please let me know. I'm sure that there are plenty of other sites that would happy to post them for you.
