apple rejected/then rates a dictionary as 17+ do to bad words

http://www.mobilecrunch.com/2009/08/...ictionary-app/

Quote:
After being rejected a first time, the programmers removed most of the bad words, missed one, and got rejected again. Finally, they took out all the words including .... Finally, after a long wait they got into the app store but on double-secret probation with a 17+ rating and warnings of potential objectionable content.
hmm. based on what was on mobile crunch I can kind of see there point. im not sure it is right but I can see there point.

I can't even see their point. It's incredibly stupid.

I can remember looking up all the "bad" words in Merriam-Webster, as an adolescent in jr. high! If it's good enough for a high school library it should be good enough for Apple!

Okay, I don't see their point. Maybe I'm missing something. It's a dictionary, something designed to help someone discover the meaning or words and their usages. If you remove all the words someone might find objectionable you're going to end up with something rather limited in scope for its intended purpose.

Yeah, I agree. This may actually be the stupidest thing I've ever heard!

It's up there with Apple deleting an ebook app because you could download the Kamasutra with it.

So Apple's in a head-to-head competition with *itself* for stupidity.

So much for "Think Different(ly)"

I suppose if I can't look up the words in a dictionary, I could go and ask the nearest 10-year old what they mean - most kids of my acquaintance know vastly more than their parents care to believe. More to point, what constitutes "objectionable"? Crude slang, colloquial, polite/medical?

Thank you for that. I understand now. Don't talk about chicken farming, animal husbandry or metalworking.
