    How can Apple allow this in? I thought they checked the words!

    Swearing is in loads of the 'reviews'

    Apple must just skim through them to check for any crude or racist comments.

    Personally, I hate censorship to a ridiculous degree. So I have to admit I'm not bothered at all by this. And like manic said "reviews".

    Makes you wonder why the reviewer even bothered putting it there...
    'fukin alright' *shakes head negatively*

    If a word is spelled wrong, it's technically not a 'swear word.'

    I always believe as long as the word's used in the right context it doesn't count as swearing either.
