I can't believe Nintendo censors Pedobear drawings

(Not my drawings, btw)

Seriously? Why is the image of a cartoon bear offensive? Ok, the first one I can understand because it has suggestive text. But who's going to get the joke, other than the people who know about it? I doubt many kids recognize Pedobear and what he represents anyway.

The other day i tried to use the word crap on Miiverse and it wasn't allowed. Not even kidding. Oh and whatever you do don't refer to breasts as Bongo's. I got a topic deleted for that one. The mods on there are insane.

Jeez, it's like they put Ned Flanders in charge of moderating Miiverse.

Darn diddly tootin! That Pedo bear thing went right over my head. I never even knew what it was myself. just kinda looked like a Gratefull dead bear to me. Guess the mod that deleted it thought you were trying to promote pedophilia.

I really think it has more to do with the shape of Pedobear and how strict their dong filter is.
Whoever drew those should try and contest it.

Way to generalize a complaint to make it sound like you were in the right. Might as well say "I'm not allowed to stand?" after being told not to loiter. It's not just simply an image of a cartoon bear, and you know that.
You had it right on the money when you said it's suggestive text. Doesn't matter if someone might not get the joke. Doesn't matter if you think that kids won't know what it means. Does that mean it's OK to draw, saw or show to a kid something that's offensive? No.
What's next? A picture of a chicken telling people to check it out, but you use the other word for chicken? Then come back with "Why are chickens offensive? They must not know that's the word for chicken.".

I honestly don't think it's too strict. I have seen quite a bunch of drawings of sexy girls in bikini/lingerie and such and it's still there. If Gamefaqs had the same mods maybe this board wouldn't be as much of a troll haven.

Ugh, stop being so sensitive. No one's being harmed.
