I just love the comments on these thread. Kids kids kids...it is all about the kids. We need to protect the kids. AHHHHHH Why do those of us who do not have kids and have to be punished for those of you who do? Why is everyone so afraid of certain words.? Yes, this debate could go on forever. Enough said.

I bought Sirius to get away from FCC censorship, and non-stop music. My wife is even annoyed over the censored lyrics she has to deal with on Hits 1. And now that spreads to the other channels...how many more?

Thank goodness for this forum to enlighten me. I will be voicing my opinion to Sirius.

And before you judge me...I am a lifetime subscriber for a year, plus we have 2 other radios on our account. We are in our 30s, upper middle class, college educated, and even work in the media business.

I like having hits 1 as a station that plays radio edited cuts.

And that's fine, as they've ALWAYS done that. The real problem here is that they are trying to backfill stations that previously had no radio edits to satisfy the deal they made with Sprint.

Are you kidding? That would defeat the whole bloody purpose of having satellite radio. EVERY music channel should be uncensored. The only "censored" ones should be the kids, religious, and the news/television channels that are already broadcast that way.

I think the Sprint deal is bad. We should not censor Alt Nation and Faction.

Not sure why we need Starlite, Movin EZ and others uncensored . Is it that you just can't enjoy Elton John, Neil Diamond and other easy listening tunes if the DJ can't drop the F-Bomb?

I just herd Only by Nine Inch Nails on Alt Nation //21 and it was uncensored.

As recently as yesterday I heard it censored.

Is this a step in the right direction, or a fluke?

Could have been a fluke, they may have started testing other stations. To early to say if they've stopped.

If anyone hears that song (edited) put it in your song seek as it seems to be the song most mentioned.

I switched over to Alt Nation on my drive to work this morning, and caught the last half of Only. They were playing the edited version, so I'm thinking fluke. :\

I don't want to see Sirius censor Alt Nation or Faction but I think a bigger issue to me is how annoying radio edits are. I would like to see Sirius not even play the radio edits. If they have to have a policy of censoring content then they should also have policy of not playing edited content.

"Only" is a perfect example. There are many more on Faction. The other day they had the new Kayne West song Golddigger. Unedited. I was later checking the release date for he album at West's website and they have a stream of that song. Edited. Highly edited. Frankly, I found the song unlistenable. It just sounded so stupid with the cut outs and sound effects that this version should really never be played. The Sirius golden rule should be that if you can't play the real thing, then you shouldn't play it at all.
