My current assignment is on the Anonymous vs Scientology stuff, and I've just had to include a reference to the Project Chanology Encyclopedia Dramatica page.

.... My academic essay is referencing Encylopedia dramatica. Is there an accepted academic way of writing 'reference NSFW - read at your own risk'? *head desk*

I guess it could be worse. I could have had to reference 4chan.

I don't know that academia has come across this yet. But it would definitely make internet website referencing interesting in future!

I could see a whole academic website warning system evolving - we'd end up with something like fic warnings, only in academic-ese!

I just really, really hope he doesn't follow the link...

It could be instant pass...or instant fail.

Honestly, though, this is the internet. And nearly everyone knows that the internet is for porn...

Somehow, I don't think I want to try that justification with my lecturer!

True. Maybe you could just put a line beneath it, "content on this site may not be suitable for minors."

Or are you just going to hope he doesn't click it?

Oh, that's a good idea, I think I'll go for that. Thanks!

(But I'm still going to hope he doesn't click it)

Ugh, referencing. Don't remind me! *hits the gender studies essay*

Good luck with it! 10 minutes before I was about to hand mine in, I realised I'd screwed up and used the wrong referencing system, and there was no way I had time to go back and work my way through 20 pages and 40 odd references to correct it. *sigh*
