Guys, guys, relax! Paipo: CN had no intention to censor anything, he was just being cautious - a bit overly cautious, maybe. But I don't see his post as a put down of yours.
CN: I feel that this kind of fear of political incorrectness would amount to self-censorship here. If anyone would abuse this image for their agenda, they should be easily defeated in their reverse-racism. The fact is that that is one fascinating pendant, as fascinating as anything relating to cannibalism from ANY culture is. It was created out of that age-old fascination back in the day, and not to offend anybody. We should be able to look at things from the past and discuss them like adults.
And it has a place here because it relates directly to the history of the Savage clubs. These kind of cross-references are what makes Tiki Central interesting and educational. That said, I agree with you that further info about all the other Savage Clubs should be put into a separate post, as this one might get too big.
