Hmm... It's all about context I suppose. Just the other day I was listening to Thought for The Week and it was rubbish: No jokes at all! Come on BBC, whatever happened to pushing the boundaries, etc On Mock the Week you can expect to hear paedophilia / murder / Josef Fritzl made light of every week.... If people who find that kind of humour offensive were alerted to it I guess it would get hundreds of complaints too. If every broadcast has to work on the assumption that it might offend someone then you'll just end up with rubbish homogenous output. If the BBC *wasn't* getting criticized for over-stepping the mark from time to time it'd mean something is wrong. Leo -- Function Design W: www.function-design.co.uk M: 07712 622 397
