[rumori] Mp3.com doesn't like "shit"

I was updating a couple of "Stations" pages on Mp3.com.

One of those (http://stations.mp3s.com/stations/54/the_exotic_channel.html)
had short description accompaining the tracks displayed on the page. I
didn't modify these but did other modifications to the page (removed a few
tracks, mostly).

When I clicked to update the page, I got these two "error" messages
displayed in red onto my screen:

- Song Description "Here it is! The first installment in the Aperitivo saga!
Dozens of 1970s soundtracks, library music and other cool ecl3ctic shit will
be soon here for you!" contains explicit language "shit".

- Song Description "Delirious! This guy is a sort of philosopher commenting
(in Italian) on changing oneself's name and other shit... Not to mention the
ethnic music loops!" contains explicit language "shit".

The funny fact is that now I can choose to update the page and remove the
4-letter words, or leave the page unmodified and with some useless stuff on
it (I had inserted artists like Offspring and other names just to drive
traffic in there when they were in the highest chart places on Mp3.com...
even if those artists had nothing to do with the station "genre") but keep
my beloved "SHIT" on screen.

If you think that a couple years ago there were at least 20 successful
artists making money with porn sound files and no one cared about that,
"hypocrites" is the only word I can think of...
