The dialogue in those last two comments from writeon and Descifrador are a wonderful example of why I am all for including quotes that some may find offensive. The players' responses and dialogue in the comment box shed light on the context of the quote and what, exactly, may be offensive about it. People here share information and thought-provoking insights that I would not have had the chance to read if the quote had been omitted from the site.

I agree about keeping quotes from controversial figures as a way to create a dialogue and teach, as much as it might hurt to see one from a fallen hero (or horrible person from history) that contradicts his personal actions. But what about insipid quotes that never should have been here in the first place. Justin Bieber and Charlie Sheen? Not offensive, just idiotic. Should have a rating section of its own.
