All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse’s arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress’ eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon’s mouth. And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lined,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part. The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slippered pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank, and his big manly voice,
Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.

I am on the fence about this one. While the gore bothers me to an extreme, death is every part of being human as life. Death as vicious as beheading though... Maybe people should see it so they could understand the gravity of the situation but some just can't watch such a thing. An edited version on the other hand, should be seen by adults.

The video showing the murder of Foley is a clear threat, but it's also trying to send a message of their power. If they gain even one new recruit as a result of that person watching the video, do you still justify it being available to view?

But why the need to place a buffer on what is real? Censorship of any kind is a no no. I'm pretty surprised that there are so many here willing to censor the internet because of the graphic nature of these videos. Again, no one is forcing you to click the link to a video. Why rely on the government yet again to decide what is safe for you to watch? More to the point, why take away the choice to view or not view something from other people based on personal opinion? Censorship sucks, no matter what is being censored.
