Hey, I thought HPR was supposed to be family friendly?
This guy needs to be screened!

Now I just feel like I'm being trolled.
I counted 34 effs in eight minutes of content, so four per minute, let alone the C bomb at the end. It's not just the language that's turning me off though, it's the whole tone, it's very aggressive and counter productive.

Three minutes of obscenities necessary?
Do you have some bet running how many "fuck"s you can fit into one episode of HPR??
Seriously, you should have just left the first 3 minutes out.

HPR is not family frendly but ....
No HPR is not family friendly, in fact the stated goals in founding Twatech/HPR was to provide a forum where the rules applied by the FCC were not applied.
We offer feeds of shows that the hosts mark as clean if you wish to subscribe to that.
However, we also are dedicated to sharing knowledge and having so many people upset is also not the goal of the community. Forcing everyone to the clean feed will remove many other shows that only occasional use more colourful language.
I am not sure that spaceman has seen these comments, so I have sent him a message via social media allowing him to respond.
Could you all please make sure you are subscribed to the mail list.

I had to set a rule to get gmail to stop sending messages to the mailing list to spam.
Do this: Skip Inbox, Apply label "lugs", Never send it to Spam

I quickly downloaded and listened to this show after seeing the furor on the mail list. I assumed the profanity was being used to describe one Donald Trump. I was wrong. Joke's on me I guess.

Just Rude for the Sake of Rude
No, my good sir, it is not *your* podcast.
If it were, you'd be hosting it on your own server. It's a contribution to the HPR community, and a darned poor one at that. Surely electrons can be put to better use.

spaceman: I for one enjoyed your eccentric and passionate performance. Your choice of colorful language literally made me LOL. Thanks for getting the hive buzzing.

Reposting from fragdev
Far be it from me to tell anyone what to do, apart from my Children of course. I have no problem with them using "bad" language when appropriate, in fact I encourage it. I do however punish them for been deliberately disrespectful even if they are using "polite" language.
You have to ask your self, whether your use of FUCK is adding anything to the episodes, or if it's just pissing people off. I was not personally offended by that, but … [some of] .. your expression did gall me a little.
How you act now is of course your call. How HPR acts after that will be decided by the community as a whole.
I am on the record for supporting the use of explicit language http://hackerpublicradio.org/pipermail/hpr_hackerpublicradio.org/2013-January/008558.html however a lot more were against.
Keep that in mind if you wish to force the issue.

RE: Just Rude for the Sake of Rude
yes, it's *my podcast*, I do have it accessible on my mediagoblin account, otherwise I would use my hidden server to do so. you can't erase me from the internets. fucking sue me!

HPR About page
This ongoing discussion shows me that some of you are new to our community and are not up to speed with what HPR is all about. That's absolutely fine as we are all busy, so I have recorded a show hpr2195 where we read the about page http://hobbypublicradio.org/about.php and the "stuff you need to know" page http://hobbypublicradio.org/stuff_you_need_to_know.php
I would consider it a personal favour if everyone would take a timeout for a while, and focus on recording shows that "are of interest to hackers".

"I definitely sounded like a dick because my previous comment got truncated, so it just looks like a provocation, I apologize for that. wait until my next podcasts to judge me... my intend was to shock and it worked. it would actually be nice to talk about the whole FOSS/FLOSS Linux thing... like I said, the nail has been nailed... "

Some language is more offensive than others
I thought that for the most part your episode was an entertaining take on the subject, and I think that I mostly agree with you on the philosophical points behind it.
I also am strongly opposed to censorship of any kind, and the "fucks", etc. don't bother me.
BUT, I would just ask you to reconsider the use of "retard" or "retarded" as an insult.
Again, I'm completely against censorship, so I'm not saying you should be forced to do so nor prevented from releasing episodes that use them in that way. But I do think it's a different sort of offense than generic words like "fuck" that some people just happen to not like.
