I have no idea what a junior anti-sex league is. Please discuss junior
anti-sex leagues somewhere else, preferrably offlist.

This list has a focus. It's not a chitchat channel about the latest Lakers
game results, the weather, pet grooming, or car tuning. (I know it might come
as shock to some people here).

Empirically, such lists no longer work by self policing.

Can we have a decision, whether we will introduce a policy enforcement here?

We have different standards, obviously. Question is, does the rest of the
list agree with the state of the list?
