[Q/R] Linking to a forbidden website?

At the bottom of this post is a link to Fur Affinity. While I have not clicked this particular link, the site in general is known for containing erotic/sexualized artwork and roleplays. So would it be a rules violation to link to it on NS?

The link is safe (I clicked it), but that is a good question. To expand, would linking to sites with NSFW sections (or other readily accessible NSFW material) be a violation of PG-13 even if the linked pages are free of such content?
Jebslund is a nation of kerbals ruled by Emperor Jebediah Kerman. We reject tyranny, believing that rights should be protected, though we also believe said rights end where the rights of others begin.
Shockingly, we *do* use NS stats, with the exception of lifespan.
Singular sapient: Jebslunder
Plural Sapient: Jebslunden
Singular/Plural nonsapient: Kermanic
Note: When a verb can logically only be done by the sapient using/piloting/holding the object in question, then the appropriate demonym for the number of sapients is used.

Capitalism, Socialism, and Communism are ECONOMIC SYSTEMS. Stop conflating them with political systems.

You know we don't rule on hypotheticals. We can't make a generalized ruling that applies to all cases. Some time ago, someone posted a link to some "educational topic" on Pornhub. While the link itself did not have any specific offensive content, the rest of the site (including all links) was devoted exclusively to pornography. That was ruled not acceptable.

I looked at the linked page and even dug through the search engine looking for erotic content. While they may host some offensive content, there were no obvious "this way to Furry Porn" links anywhere on that site. I would rule in that specific case that the link is fine.
