Have Virgin got an aversion to them or something?

19 December 2011

As spied by avid Twitter users @TheMediaTweets and @scaryduck, Virgin Media’s EPG swearblocking system is possibly being a little bit over-fussy at the moment…

    It's so stupid, you wouldn't even think about it if they had left it. Using them only draws attention to it.

    I'm glad jarvis isn't a scunthorpe supporter

    Surely this is just some automated text match thing not a real person thinking they should censor hancock

    @james Dewitt No...Sir Richard does it all himself. Trawls through every TV listing for every channel on Virgin looking for naughty words.

    no suprise NTLhell used to do this on their staff email accounts - years before Virgin - where hoodwinked into buying them.

    I think it's fucking brilliant! I cannot stand cunts who swear gratuitously. Too much of the bastarding stuff going on.

    Surely the whole of A**enal should be blanked out as it is a very distasteful to many

    Most of us would just pull a face and find it funny. This guy on the other hand, has a little too much time available, taking the time to photograph then post the picture and a smarmy little comment, in a desparate attempt to make people think he is funny. iPhone using C**T!

    It would have been funnier if they'd substituted fruit or vegetables for the "naughty" words like some forums do. Manbananaer City v Applenal? What a bunch of Kumqwatsuckers!
