Well I can imagine's reasoning is that if you didn't label your
station as an "adult" station, there are young 'uns who who could 'surf'
onto your station page and have their innocence shattered by discovering
that there's this word called "shit". After all, the word still isn't
allowed on network or cable tv in the US.

But in the internet, it seems pretty outdated to ban the word "shit" on a
website, especially when my 5 year old niece gets unsolicited emails telling
her to click on the link for pictures of raunchy banyard sex.
