No porn on Facebook

I have been coming across a fair amount of nudity if not outright pornographic images on Facebook when working for a client (fashion related stuff, which quickly led to fetish related stuff, etc) , and wondering just exactly what their policy is on pornography. It can be a little difficult to find, but here it is (from this page):

"You will not post content that: is hateful, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence."

So I guess the thing is that people that post this kind of stuff have like minded friends, and they don't report each other, so the stuff stays up there? I am not talking about porno spam on your wall from a complete stranger, but photo galleries, wall posts, etc. containing pornography and more often than not copyrighted material.

I guess it pretty much amounts to a don't ask don't tell policy, or nudge, nudge, wink, wink - but to me it just screams again that Facebook's user numbers are inflated for all the wrong reasons (like the gazillion under age kids that use it, etc.).
