BTW - I did not mean to imply you might be subscribing to those channels. A friend of mine felt safe because he didn't pay 
for them, but apparently there was some sort of new subscriber promo, which allowed him to receive virtually everything, 
so you may not be safe even if you do not subscribe to the porn channels.

I also know that sometimes just the titles can be problematical, what a world.
