If anyone has VM TV...check out the on screen guide.....they've become totally PC !!

At the moment the film Hancock is on.......they have it listed as Hanc**k !!

And today's match between Man City & Arsenal was Man City vs, you guessed it, A**enal !! I kid you not !!:lol:

I'm waiting for Scunthorpe to be play soon......the screen will blow up !!!!:wow:

I'd be more worried about the BBFC and their draconian censorship.

UK has the most aggressive censorship of any democracy on the planet.
:(

Even the airline cut of films have less censorship than the UK TV versions now. :(:(:(


Muddy-funsters! :thumbs:

That's all very weird - sounds like a catch-all swearfilter that has just been crudely thrown in to satisfy the 'family viewing' lobby?

I have the whole lot (TV, phone, Broadband, mobile) on VM but haven't noticed this yet - was it on the actual EPG?

Although now you mention it, I phoned my mate on my mobile the other day and had a whinge about work and he said all he could hear was just a load of bleeps? :lol:

I've noticed that a couple of times before but didn't last long before it was back to normal. I wonder if it's after they upgrade something that it kicks in.

This response from the Virgin Mod on the forum:

Hi all,

This has been flagged and raised it appears the filter we use for our adult channels has started screening standard channels by accident.

The fault ref is: 1835716.

Our engineers are working to resolve this fault as soon as possible.

Regards


That seems even more bizarre, they have swear filter on the porn channels? :lol: You pay all that money and you can't even indulge yourself with some good old Anglo-Saxonisms! :rolleyes:

The male hen word wasn't even a swear word until it became associated with mens tackle.

How long before shaft becomes a swear word for instance?


This political correctness and pandering to people who *May* get offended is getting silly.
