Talk:Princess Toadstool for President

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

Well, this article has the f word in it at the bottom. Should there be some warning, or should we censor it since it isn't a quote (Bob Hoskins, anyone?) Super-YoshiMust...eat...sig...Talk? C??? 23:38, 2 March 2009 (EST)

We could use the template from the Bob Hoskins page. SJ derp :P
There is no need to censor, as the information is presented in an academic way (i.e., it's not being used as a swear word, but to inform people about different versions of the show). -- Son of Suns (talk)
But it is still a curse word no matter what, and that can offend people. I must admit, I was a little shocked when I saw that. SJ derp :P
A lot of stuff on this wiki could offend people (like the Underwhere, or even Mario's relationship with Princess Peach), but our goal is to cover all aspects of the Mario series. The word itself is not directed at anyone specifically, so it is not a curse word no matter what. "Fuck" is simply a word - only some people consider it a curse word. -- Son of Suns (talk)
Scratch that. Why don't we just use the show/hide thing like on the Bob Hoskins page? SJ derp :P
Hmmm...well, that function is not used on the Bob Hoskins page anymore. It is simply censored. Anyways, I don't think we need to censor the page. Wikipedia doesn't (just think about all the potentially offensive articles there!), and if we want to be considered a legitimate, informative wiki, we shouldn't either. -- Son of Suns (talk)
It's the censorship proposal of February '08 all over again...how about a waring or something? SJ derp :P
Again, that would be a form of censorship, and who knows where it could lead? Once we censor one thing, someone may want to censor the List of Implied Locations page for talking about Hell, or the Daisy article because she shows her midriff. So I think it's best that we keep things open. If someone personally does not like reading that word, they don't have to read the article again. -- Son of Suns (talk)
