Mr. Hsiung,
You wrote, [....PC asked what the picture was (so that is the reason that I posted the link)...].
Now the crux of the matter here is if a reply can be uncivil and if the content of the link is or is not considered by you as civil or not. For your rule is to not post language that could offend others as being vulgar. Language can be extended from being just words, to be also pictures. The displaying of a swastika, although not a word, conveys what language could convey in words.
The depiction of nude women can be considered to be vulgar by advocacy groups for women's dignity and by religious groups to uphold the dignity of women.
The issues here extend beyond just your posting of the link. For if your rule can have an excuse to be broken, then your excuse could be seen as a mockery of your rules to not post what could lead one to feel put down or accused and to not post language that could offend others as being vulgar. Language does not have to be just in words, for symbols and pictures could convey what words could.
Then there is the aspect of if you can post links to offending content, and others can not. And there the aspect of if what is posted is a reply, then offensive content can be posted. But replies have to be civil, and there can not be used the excuse that the uncivil content is a reply which makes it civil, for in a discussion, most of the posts can be replies.
I am asking that you immediately delete the link to the pictures, for if you wanted to reply to the poster, that could be done without posting the link by citing work of the painter for PC to do a search about on PC's own without posting the pictures here.
Phillipa has a rational basis for objecting to you posting the link. This is because you have sanctioned vulgar words used here. Vulgar is vulgar regardless what form it is presented.
