[Hpr] Swearing?

I think Ken is right in not requiring warnings. I think you go down a rough road when you start censoring content. If you start policing what people say, how they say it, and/or require specific advisories on certain posts, then in some places in the world, you may take responsibility for the content. Probably not the best thing to do.

I think of HPR more like an unregulated open forum. As long as it is relevant to the community, it eventually may be posted in it's entirety. Unmodified and unedited, except for HPR identification at the beginning and end.

>Point taken, Ken. I am not easily offended but do always consider those who are. I was thinking more along the lines of someone getting the show from somewhere other than iTunes. I also did not mean to imply that the shows should be limited in *any way*. I suppose there are not too many people who would listen who would be easily offended anyway ;-)
