Too many images[edit]

I vote for deletion of a few images o this page. Think it's too many. -- Fridday 16:49, 17 July 2006 (EDT)

I'm reminded of the joke about the fat man who insisted that he wasn't over-weight, he was "under-tall". I think the problem with this article isn't the number of photos, but the fact that there isn't a lot of text to go along with them. If there were, it wouldn't look like "too many" images. (We have quite a few articles with 4-5 images that are just fine that way.) My suggested solution to that imbalance would be to add to the the text, rather than removing images. - Todd VerBeek 17:59, 17 July 2006 (EDT)
I don't think it meets the criterias of the image policy where it talks about the minimal use of images. My opinion is that the Valle de la Luna-image could stay and the others should go. I think this page is on the slippery slope to becoming a vacation photo gallery, as mentioned in the goals. -- Fridday 16:25, 21 July 2006 (EDT)

Crime and rape[edit]

I read this because I am going to San Pedro soon, I am offended as a woman by the section on crime, in relation to rape. It states that rape is rare and happens to heavily intoxicated women. Firstly, rape is rape regardless of how much the woman has drunk. Being heavily intoxicated is not asking to be raped. A woman should have the right to drink as much as she chooses without the risk of any form of abuse. Also, rape being 'rare' is misleading, it sounds like a positive statement but one case of rape is one too many. I suggest changing this sentence to something as more of a helpful warning to women. I suggest: Rape is not unheard of in San Pedro, therefore we urge women to exercise caution especially at parties where alcohol is involved.

As we all know, there are a lot of misconceptions about rape in today's society. So we appreciate and thank you for reading and suggesting the change. It's now part of the article(with the exception of revising the first-person writing)! Please feel free to continue contributing and making changes of your own as well. If you have any questions, just reach out! Best, IBcaldera (talk) 13:50, 13 August 2014 (EDT)
