Yesterday the BBC decided to edit the word “drugs” from a broadcast of the track “Rockstar” by Nickelback on the Radio 2 Chris Evans show.
It is not an offensive word. Is it?
If the support for this decision is to send some kind of “signal” where is the line to be drawn?
Words are just words. Good, bad, indifferent. Part of the rich dictionary available to us for communication.
Do not watch what you say. That is not the important thing.
It is the way you use words that matters.
