Censorship, what do you think of it?
do you think its right to censor others?

Where are the limits?
what is justified?
Examples of pro and con.

i hate the censorship of language. nudity has its limits, and to censor anything so it can be "safe" for family viewing is acceptable.


but the one thing i absolutely hate is when things are censored to make it look like the said something else...like the breackfast club is always shown on cable, the part where Bender says eat my shorts is sometimes edited to say socks, but you can clearly tell that its edited. that always pisses me off.

I don't have a problem with the board censoring things because their board not ours, if we paid for hosting thats something completely different. That being said, I don't think its nescesary to censor things in most media, if someone had bad intentions to begin with regardless of what word is said the same meaning is still conveyed. like hearing sht instead of shit changes anything pfff

yah you know what Im sayin!

G Carlin was the best ever! I love Comedians, esp that one that complained about the fact that what I would like to know, in the land of freedom, why should i not be able to freely accerss one of the greastest artits in history's work?

What if some of michealangelos work was "hidden" form the public.

My only question would be why?

i remember a few years ago i had to work on a school project and i was in their computer lad and i searched the words "wild animals" and maybe half the results were porn...so im sure there have been tons of incidents of kids finding the perfect boobie site.

and lets not forget janet jackson gave us a reason to actually watch halftime shows ;)
