Etenne--how come in the following phrase in the article:

referred to as a "nude photo" or a sexually explicit photo

the "sexually explicit" is in bold rather than being a link? User4 (talk) 14:38, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

I am not sure what you are asking. I looked at it and I was still not able to see a formatting problem. However my comment is that this is not a definition as much as it is an explanation and it is not written in a way that is anything close resembling a neutral POV. --Etenne BLSmileyface.png 16:03, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
The "bolding" thing disappeared. Strange. Must be a software bug.
As for a "neutral POV", Wouldn't a (so-called) "neutral" POV in an article about the (pseudoscience) of astrology require that astrology not be referred to as a pseudoscience?
Wouldn't a (so-called) "neutral" POV in an article about the (pseudoscience) of divining through reading tea leaves require that divining through reading tea leaves not be referred to as a pseudoscience?
Wouldn't the above be a huge disservice to the public by furthering the myths of the (in fact, false) efficacy of astrology and tea-leaf reading? User4 (talk) 16:17, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
No because you could find an authoritative reference to support that position. that it is not simply your opinion but it is supported by the facts. --Etenne BLSmileyface.png 16:22, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
You can find "an authoritative reference" to support anything at all. "The facts" are those things which may be empirically established using valid scientific methods.
That which has been empirically established using valid scientific methods DOES NOT support the hypothesis that astrology (and other pseudosciences) are genuine phenomenon. User4 (talk) 16:51, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
