The publication is out dated like it's founder and there is no place for it

What's the point of it without the nude women?

I think this is a good direction for them, since that will make them more accessible to all, and not put out of the way in places that sell magazines, They already pretty much were nude free online so that you could safely share things from them to facebook etc.

Its not like the 90's where you had to go looking for nudity, now its all popping up online when you are trying to just do some good honest piracy!
