Hehe.. considering that 'burro' is a Spanish or Mexican term, that word specifically will no be mentioned. however, the term 'ass' is mentioned many times.

I know you already knew this, I just felt like being superior for a change..you know. like an ass

Do you think the only true Bible is written in English?

Here is "burro" in the Bible. (It means "butter" in Italian.)

I currently haven't got the Dictionary App installed on my iPhone (from Dictionary.com) but I would be intrigued as to what content they have and whether or not this passed Apple.

It is too big for me to install over 3G (about 50Mb) so I will have to wait until I get home - unless anybody else has it.

Available through apples very own Safari App.
Surely by banning applications because of what they can access is hypocrytical?

Let me start with the most important points - Apple did not censor the content in this developer’s application and Apple did not reject this developer’s application for including references to common swear words. You accused Apple of both in your story and the fact is that we did neither.

The issue that the App Store reviewers did find with the Ninjawords application is that it provided access to other more vulgar terms than those found in traditional and common dictionaries, words that many reasonable people might find upsetting or objectionable. A quick search on Wiktionary.org easily turns up a number of offensive “urban slang” terms that you won’t find in popular dictionaries such as one that you referenced, the New Oxford American Dictionary included in Mac OS X. Apple rejected the initial submission of Ninjawords for this reason, provided the Ninjawords developer with information about some of the vulgar terms, and suggested to the developer that they resubmit the application for approval once parental controls were implemented on the iPhone.

The Ninjawords developer then decided to filter some offensive terms in the Ninjawords application and resubmit it for approval for distribution in the App Store before parental controls were implemented. Apple did not ask the developer to censor any content in Ninjawords, the developer decided to do that themselves in order to get to market faster. Even though the developer chose to censor some terms, there still remained enough vulgar terms that it required a parental control rating of 17+.
