Wow. Apple is doing this just so they don't get sued. Hey, while words like that aren't used lightly, they still happen. Zero-Tolerance.

I like the Cydia idea. It lets "bad" apps like Qik, Flixwagon, Snapture, and especially ClearCam still be sold. Plus, Apple doesn't get a cut.

Perhaps mobile safari should also be rejected, because it's also capable of displaying cuss words.

Guess we need to add a bad word filter to Safari too. And Mail.app. And Twitteriffic. And... I think we see where this is going. Apple is being majorly anal about this.

We just had the same issue with our new Twitter Weather app called "Human Weather". One of the comments contained a bad word and they rejected the app. We had to develop a "bad word" filter and now they have approved it!

That's exactly why I'll never buy the iPhone (let alone develop for it) until you can legally install apps from other sources.
