Submission + - Apple bans words from iTunes which would make a 4th grader giggle (the-digital-reader.com)

Nate the greatest writes: Remember when (a href="http://apple.slashdot.org/story/12/05/20/1632234/apple-lifts-ban-on-the-word-jailbreak">Apple banned the word Jailbreak from iTunes? It looks like Apple might be up to their old tricks. A friend tipped me today to the fact that Apple is now censoring a couple words in iTunes. If you search for the words, any book or song title which uses them will show the first letter of the word and asterisks instead of the complete word. The 2 banned words are body parts, and you almost certainly have one or the other (penis, vagina). I knew that Apple has a youth oriented culture but this is getting ridiculous.
