PG-13 rated site upgraded to R after forgetting to type the * symbol in the word “fuck”
February 21, 2012 § 2 Comments
The usually family friendly WordPress blog, Views from my Subaru, was hit hard today with comments asking the creator of the site to tone down the language after he accidentally typed the word “fuck” instead of the usual, fu*k, which is only readable by those over the age of 18.
Considered to be a more PG-13 style site, Views from my Subaru was upgraded to R after to many complaints came into WordPress from unhappy viewers. Miranda Fellowship, a long time Subaru reader and mother of two, had this to say about the incident, “I was shocked when I read it. I mean, I read that site to my kids sometimes and to think that they could have heard me read that word aloud sends chills down my spine. Now I have to actually actively watch what my kids read just in case something like that gets out there again. Its appalling.”
“Everyone knows that you can’t write the word fuck and expect to get away with it,” says professional commenter, Daryl Speedman, “because that kind of language is unacceptable for your everyday family site. Kids see those kinds of words and their minds just get fried. It becomes all about sex and violence and sex once that shit crosses a kids eyes. In order for them not to read them, you gotta put a # symbol or any other type thingy in a letters place. That way the bad words go unread because kids and teens don’t have the mental capabilities to place a C or a U where the * is. I don’t know why this is, I just know that it is.”
And now welcome our very special guest, Mr Tony Danza.
Hey, Tony Danza here, speaking on behalf of Talker96. He knows that today’s post was not his best work. It could have used a little more work in the final execution, this he agrees with you on, but he would like to just say that it’s been a long day and didn’t feel like working on it anymore. I say that’s cool by me and I’m Tony Danza.
