Boo for Yahoo

I was looking at the Yahoo Kids site today and left annoyed. I sent the following letter on their feedback form.
I visited the site to check out the possibility of letting my kids hang out here. The answer will be no. The front page of your site featured a music video from the "Naked Brothers Band." That the incongruity of the band's name didn't leap out at the editors leaves me with no trust in the rest of your site. The LAST thing I want to teach my children on the internet is that it might be okay to click on a naked-anything link. /smacks forehead

P.S. Yes, I watched the video and I realize it doesn't contain pornographic content. The point is the false association with risque titles and innocent content.
