Don't take it upon yourself to force that value upon the world around you.
    I guess network TV edits of movies really piss you off, then, because this is really no different.

    I suppress lots of media. I don't just bleep or blur; I ban. Am I censoring? Maybe. I don't care, though, because I see that as part of my job as a parent. Do I ever provide "adulterated" media for my kids? Not often, but yeah. Every time I play something like "Forget You" instead of "Fuck You" or the clean version of Radiohead's "Creep", I'm doing that. Granted, the original artists not only approved of those alterations, but they participated in their creation. However, KC gave approval (within certain reasonable limits).

    If Duffusmonkey wants to make edits just for his kids, he's free to do so as far as I'm concerned. DMCA and other copyright law be damned. What anyone does to media for personal consumption is their own damn business and content creators and busybody art purists can piss off. Distributing edited works for others enters different territory, but permission has already been granted.

    I don't know if I would do what DM has done for my kids. They're not old enough to consider it, and won't be for several years yet. I don't think it's impossible, though. Yeah, there's violence, but it's not particularly bad, IMHO. It's not gratuitous, and even the really bad parts can only be imagined. I mean, it's not like the kids can see ludicrous gibs flying across a screen in 3D. [Bonus points to the first person to remember the source of "ludicrous gibs".] There's a little bit of implied sexual activity, but it's not like KC had the actress doing her best "Sally in a restaurant with Harry" impression. So, that just leaves the language. Given the amount and nature of violence, and the amount and nature of sexual activity, I could justify presenting a version of WA that's edited for language to my kids. Furthermore, if I thought other parents might appreciate having the same, and KC approved of it, I might provide it for others as DM has. Kids are very impressionable, and I don't want mine swearing like the characters in WA. As was said earlier, profanity is for lazy, uncreative people who can't think of anything more intelligent or witty to say. I ought to know; I'm very often that lazy, uncreative son of a bitch.

    Sorry for being all over the map with my response, but I just found out about this controversy, and I have a lot of soapbox time to catch up on.

    ADDENDUM: Another post in the thread reminded me of the attempted rape. Not sure I'd let that through my censoring to get to my kids.

    Wowsers. I'd forgotten about that. When I was thinking of sexual content earlier, I was thinking of Michael and Pegs. I'd really have to think long and hard about what age an attempted rape scene would be ok to let my kids listen to.

    One thing I will say, and I may sound like a broken record because this is something I've been wanting to do for a while, is eventually release the clean version of the show. That'll most likely happen AFTER we're all done.

    You will probably be too busy making movies and too rich to care by then,
    Some day people will say "I wish KC Wayland would learn from George Lucas and sell the rights to We're alive so that more movies could made, six movies were just not enough!"

    Then again my predictions have pretty much all been wrong
