Terrorist groups? Which anarchists groups in America are deemed terrorist? My search so far has been fruitless.

Agreed. And this seems to suggest that there are no offical anarchist terrorist groups, but that they are sometimes watched by the FBI. HelpJazz 17:21, 15 September 2008 (EDT)

As i attempted to make issue of before, but has apparently been wiped from this talk page, the introductory paragraph is biased, and inappropriately specific references to unsubstantiated, uncited presumptions, i.e. "Anarchists tend to support unrestricted access to drugs, alcohol, pornography, and gambling. Anarchists also tend to support unrestricted abortion, assisted suicide, and prostitution." If anybody can find conclusive evidence that these positions are peculiar to anarchists, then by all means, cite it, and we'll let the issue rest. However, i am quite doubtful there exists such proof. To be frank, the introductory paragraph represents an ad vericundiam attack on the character of anarchists, as opposed to the kind of objective description becoming an encyclopedia. Thus, i am taking the liberty of striking the above sentences from the article. i would challenge whomever has been reversing my prior edits to this page to present a factual basis for his/her doing so...

Is it the content or the way it's being said? HelpJazz 20:20, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

I think that prostitution is something that anarchists would oppose. It is exploitive and it involves the women being taken advantage of. But this could differ from one anarcho-ideology to another. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trystan (talk)

Perhaps the article would be helped by a description of the different types of anarchists. It seems reasonable that different types of anarchists would have differing opinions on prostitution (for example), but all would be against a law prohibiting prostitution, since a law requires a government.

Actually, most anarchists these days have a lot of support for sex workers, if not necessarily prostitution. A lot of folks regard it as a legitimate trade, that has the possiblity of becoming exploitative, much like all forms of labor.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by NoahH (talk)
Talk of the exploitive nature of labor sounds like left anarchism. Anarchocapitalists certainly don't agree. This is why I think the article would benefit from a discussion of the types of anarchism. HelpJazz 20:02, 16 October 2008 (EDT)
