I think this is a brilliant idea!! We just need to make it easy when people upload their shows to simply check a NSFW flag so that others can filter them out if they choose. 

Sent from my iPhone but don't judge me. I use it because it is convenient and useful not because it is some hipster accessory.

I've always wanted to put HPR on the air but one small detail is language. I fully support full and creative use of language on HPR, especially since there's no regulation it has to pander to. And technically part15 radio is not subject to FCC language controls as it's not really considered broadcasting. However, being a community member means trying to make my part15 station family friendly, and hence I can't just automatically put HPR and other shows which may have "F bombs" and other language on the air.

Sadly I only get to catch the occasional episode any more, and I just don't have time to pre-screen all of the content. This would enable folks like me to automatically put "G" rated shows into our rotation and be able to skip shows with language or topic not family friendly. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it would make rebroadcasting it easier for folks like me.
