    What's sad is that these censors who come up with terms like "Monday-Friday" plane, or "Son of a wench," from the TV version of The Breakfast Club, actually think they're clever. They're not. If they were, they'd be writing screenplays or for television.

    Pro-porn Books, magazines and websites defending "free speech" that leave out details of the troubled lives of porn stars. One book, Pornocopia I believe it was called, mentioned how much money 90's star Savannah made before she died, neglecting to mention it was a suicide. Stars on web diaries and facebook acting weird (bipolar?) then quickly retracting remarks as if they never happened....

    That's bad enough but for some reason they forgot to edit his dialogue. So he's just looking at his perfectly clean hand asking "What the hell is this?!"
    Speaking of Outlaw Star, in the uncut version, Melfina is buck naked when she interfaces with Gene's ship, but when the show was on Cartoon Network, she’s retro-edited with a black tube top and matching bike pants.

    In the music department, “Break On Through (To The Other Side)” by The Doors has this line: “She gets high! She gets high!”, but this is what you hear on the radio, even on satellite stations: “She gets......! She gets......!”

    A comics example. Cinebook has been publishing English translations of mature Franco-Belgian comics. This has involved minor changes to the art to remove depictions of of topless women (presumably because they are selling to the American market and the US is unaccountably terrified of the idea of nipples). Usually this just involves touching up the art so the topless lady has a sheet draped over her chest or some such.

    However, in one volume of Barracuda, a female character is stripped to the waist preparatory to being flogged. (This scene is not gratuitous and is extremely plot-relevant. The character is a noble who has been made a slave, and it is the flogging that completes her breakdown and turns her into the ruthless, vengeance-driven creature she becomes later in the story). She escapes and flees, still topless, through the jungle. However, the artist who touched up these scenes, chose to make it appear that she did not have breasts at all, making her look like a teenage boy and the whole thing appear quite bizarre.

    (It is just possible that the artist might have confused her with another character who is a cross-dresser, but given they look nothing alike (one is brunette, the other is blonde) it would show a shocking lack of attention to detail.)

    I think in most cases though, it's the movie studios themselves doing it so that they can have a ready made version that can be shown on TV. I can't remember where I heard it but I guess back in the 70's when cursing in mainstream movies became pretty typical, originally they were just going to bleed out the swear words, but the concern was the audience still could read lips of the actors so the solution became if there wasn't a milder word that be easily substituted ( say "freaking" for "fucking"), just use a nonsense word that sounded similar ( so "son of a bitch" becomes "son of a biscuit").

    One now-defunct message board's software censored the word "wristwatch". You might wonder what's wrong with that word, but the way the software altered it draws attention to the issue:

    wris****ch

    After laughing my ass off, I reported this to the site admin, and he updated the filter. A few weeks later though, I saw this on the site and laughed even harder:

    wris****ches

    He'd white-listed the singular version but not the plural.

    Similarly in this vein, I was playing an online board game with a couple of friends and it had a censor.

    So I said" That's embarrassing."

    What my friends saw was: "That's embarrbutting."

    And that's how we discovered the censor.

    Some of the censoring I've seen in some comics from Marvel seem rather weird. I think I've seen them censor the word "ass" (it was three symbols over letters so I assume it was the word ass). It's strange because I thought that word wouldn't need to be censored in what was a teen and up comic.

    well, there was a story from the 80s were a kid wanted to be like johnny and lit himself up. not sure if the story cooped out and made the kid immortal and regrowing himself or something--- anyway that idea was out there.

    one night i zapped into "bloodsports" (JCvD) on tv and the final fight starts and the next scene it is over. censored because too violent...

    the german version of half-life had robots instead of soldiers and they leaked green goo if shot...

    i hate robot enemies if they only serve as cheap cannon fodder, hello star wars prequels
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    What continues to burn my biscuit, in comics, is the continued censorship of nudity Tomb of Dracula in reprints, by carefully edited panels that extend clothing, bedsheets, etc. to cover forbidden boobage and buttage. HEAVEN FORBID WE SHOW GENE COLAN'S EXPERT BOOBIECRAFT!

    Us kids in the 1970s had it good. No one cared to even bother to censor all those black and white magazines. Yet, viewed as comic books no one had any problem with us kids picking them up.

    It’s funny how raw a lot of that stuff was back then while still being marketed at young people.

    Damn, I didn't know that. The version I used to have on tape (recorded from my sister's vinyl) and the version on my itunes library just have “She gets......! She gets......!”. I don't think I've ever heard the uncensored version.

    I've never heard it either. I only found out about it on a webpage I read a year or so ago about edited songs for radio. And yes, "Who Are You?" by The Who where Roger Daltrey growls, "Who the fuck are you?" was on that list.
