Is keyboard magazine insane? You need too bleep out the s-word? The Joey D. article bleeped out the s-word. Now i have seen everything. Then forget about Tori Amos. Almost every word she said was bleeped out. I want to read the text the same as the interview was given. Who exactly are you trying to protect anyway? Yes there will be the one or two people that just can't handle it and i say let um go. I have subscribed to Keyboard for ove 15 years. I just can't stand it anymore! I think 99.99% of us can deal with the colorful language that musicians use. Please let the 0.01 percent that can't go!
It amazes me that you are so opposed to the removal of profanity from the magazine. In my opinion, there's no place for swears and vulgarity in a pro publication like Keyboard, and calling it "colorful" language is a weak attempt to justify why it should be included.
When I look at magazines for Architects, Doctors, Photographers, Dancers, and other pros, I rarely if ever see vulgarity...it's just not professional. Why should Keyboard lower its standards?
So Keyboard Mag: Keep it clean! And if there are a few readers who just can't stand NOT seeing vulgarity, let THEM go.
