AOL: Bunch of Prudes?

Earlier tonight, I was on AOL, and I clicked a link to a "Where Are They Now?" article on MTV.com about kids who were on album covers. The main photo accompanying the article was the naked, swimming baby from the cover of Nirvana's Nevermind.

There was one of those extremely annoying expandable ads that wouldn't go away, and it was covering a good portion of the article, so I copied and pasted the link in Firefox. Immediately, I noticed a distinct difference in the two articles.

WTF, AOL? Parental controls (which I don't even have set up) are one thing, but that's just silly. This isn't 1950.
