Edit: new title, Censoring Civil War content
(take away censorship)

Apple have now they have taken them back!
(Just days after removing them)

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/141350-The-App-Store-is-Removing-Games-that-Include-the-Confederate-Flag

Do we see too much censorship and censoring content in all medias and other content these days?
(atleast begun with such agian)

Where America these last months have becomed very sensitive about any content that could effect anyone? (first schools, on TV and now this a few topic's back maybe around 6 months)

Germany banned the Nazi symbol, and everybody manages to live just fine; and yes there is to much censorship.

When you are flat out denying history in such a way that you are banning a strategy game I'd say you have gone too far.


Now, it appears that Apple has decided to join them by pulling many Civil War wargames from the App Store. As of the writing of this story, games like Ultimate General: Gettysburg and all the Hunted Cow Civil War games are nowhere to be found.

I think the Confederate flag is a symbol of racism, hatred, and a dark American past and should be removed from anywhere.


But thaaaaat's just me.

Yup thats what they try to just before someone did about school books like WW2 and the past or start of America etc
(mostly because they found if offensive and racist where media and other groupes are created that goes agianst it even if it just some creative content that "does nothing" to you..)

So you want the Nazi flag away too when its millions if not more products like games, books, magazines? (if following the same idea and should be censored)

It's one thing removing it from government buildings and public places, but it's a completely different thing from pulling it from the app store and erasing every mention of it.

All this is stupid and getting really out of hand. Endless cycle of people overreacting to something, and then people overreacting at the overreaction, etc.

Well its allways the start of something, as seen "lately" there has been more off it.
(will start growing out of hands as same to the school articles that was before that nearly succeeded?)
And more activites around rules of what one should do.
http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-devon-33135293 too good for your own good and more content around.
so such senstivity just effects way too much around here both censorship and this.

There is to much censorship.

The government is turning everyone into thin skinned frail individuals who get their feelings hurt if they are "triggered" by the smallest of things.

The government needs to stop censoring insignificant things because a few people are "offended" by it.

There are certain things that need to be censored yes, however, we cannot start censoring shit because some random person somewhere is offended by it.

its not only that but also who MAYBE will become "offended"...
Same about Games of Thrones
(too many people "offended" by the content in it and way too many that want this away "censorship" of original content per say, showing how far some would go and what people would "vote" for like such content to be censored in media and other places)

Banning the Confederate flag is just everyone being way oversensitive. It's a symbol people have died for, it seems wrong to just throw that away.
