The point your missing is while the censorship itself is always a problem, the real problem is that the simple act of putting something outrageous on YouTube or even TV always needs to be prefaced with the idiot protection disclaimer, "don't try this at home" or some variation thereof. How stupid have we become as a society that we actually have to tell the stupider amongst us that this isn't a good idea to emulate?

Comment: Trojan horse?? (Score 5, Insightful) 107

I think it's pretty irresponsible to refer to a legitimate and legal marketing tactic that is in use by Google and Yahoo as "Trojan Horse". Users know when they install a Bing search app that their searches are not going to Google... Not sure whether that comment came from teh reference article or the poster, but it's a little over the top, even for MS haters on ./

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.
