I have just reviewed the content on your web site. In my opinion anyone who
would deem those pictures to be pornographic has a woefully sick mind.
However, that is not the issue I think that the HR types who are reviewing
your qualifications are so afraid of making a mistake, if they think you
might even be a controversial employee, even if there is as little as a 10%
chance, they will recommend not hiring you. However, you are faced with the
reality of your desire to become employed. Therefore, if I was in your
situation I would remove the potentially offending sample from my web site.
