You raise a reasonable point - I'll take a look at making it a bit more neutral - done.
This article reads like an advert for a naturist society. Media is denounced as onesided and puritanical, as is anyone who deigns to be slighted by the issue of nudity. Achromatic 11:54, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
Naked walking, naked hiking, naked jogging, naked cycling, naked riding, etc. are all modern extensions of the traditional nudism or naturist movement. Some landed club traditionalists feel being naked outside the nudist club walls is unnacceptable, many do not. Indeed many nudists feel the current move, out of the confines boundaries of the past and into more public areas, is long overdue.
It is appalling that through the media our children can be exposed to so many scenes of nudity associated violence, such that is seen in the television and film industry, and yet not be allowed to see a normal naked human body simply being happy and free. Pioneers have always been ostracised in their own time. However, society is slowly coming to realize there are many many people prepared to be naked in the great outdoors, just so that in the next century public and active nudity won't be considered a strange activity at all.
This does not read like a true wiki article should...it reads like a news paper or some other form...it should be changed.
This image should not be deleted simply because hikers can be fined for hiking naked. Wikipedia is not censored, and it may contain photos of people engaged in illegal activities. The individual are unrecognizable, so there's no problem of defaming them. Given the circumstances, it's apparent that they new they were being photographed. The articles makes it clear that one canton has decided to charge a fine, so it's not like we're encouraging people to engage in illegal activity. The photo does not indicate that it was even taken in that canton, though I suppose someone might be able to recognize the terrain. In short, I don't see any good reason for deleting the photo.
