After talking with David on the phone, I think I got a better explanation
of his concerns than he may have got across here.
To fully understand his concerns, you have to put yourself in the place of
a parent or a person with nieces/nephews/grandchildren. Better yet, such
a person who has watched a lot of episodes of 20/20 and/or Dateline. Many
people are very sensitized to the issue of pedophilia.
The mere mention of these things make some people extremely nervous. If a parent were to stumble across Jonathan's message on the webpage, he/she might wonder "What if?" and decide it isn't worth the risk allow their kid to go to those meetings.
As we have a few members who are in high school or junior high school, this is an issue that has some relevance.
A worst case scenario could have some hysterical parent calling CMU and having us banned from campus. (Not likely, of course)
