Well, Tom, I don't think your position is really contrary to anything. As far as I can see, most responses indicate we'd avoid projects that kept us awake at night. :-) Though, as Tom Murrell pointed out, it's not an ethical dilemma if you're getting paid whether you do it or not!

I'll take a contrary position to what I've seen so far. I would have no
problem saying no to such a project. Just because something is legal,
doesn't make it ethical. In my opinion, and beliefs, these industries cause
a lot more problems than most people realize. They devalue human worth,
cause marriage problems, increase crime and who knows what other problems
are created. Pornography is as damaging as any illicit drug and I couldn't
sleep at night if I knowingly contributed to their bottom line.
