Why censorship is dumb

22 Feb

If you use the iTunes Music Store you'll notice that dirty words are censored.  If you search for a song with the name Fuck in it, the results will change the word to F**k.  However, I think that this screenshot demonstrates the stupidity of such a scheme.  It is also telling that when you use the iTunes Link Maker, which I did to generate the example link, it displays the song titles without the censoring.
