Apple censoring iTunes music store metadata

It seems that Apple have gone through and placed asterisks in some ‘offensive’ words (like w*g, a*s, but not apparently nigger) .The ABC’s “Spicks and Specks” is now apparently “Sp***s and Specks”. Including, in the case of Futurama, the name of the robot “Bender” (because it encourages irresponsible drinking?). Report on News.com.au

Maybe they’re worried that under Australia’s censored internet nobody will be able to buy iTunes?

Note of course that Apple are still happy for you to pay them money to purchase items that are too dangerous for you to see the name of.
