Apple stops censoring terms it etches onto iPhones in Taiwan

If the "bad word" list is never published nor accessible, apple can censor whatever they like, whenever they like with the excuse of a list that nobody will ever have access to.

I do not believe this kind of behaviour is only apple and china related. Yucktube, farcebook and the like have been censoring or deleting contents and accounts due to some unspecified "breach of rules" several times already.

Please correct me if i am wrong but i seem to remember "secret laws" in the USA, created after 9/11. Pretty much the same mechanism, "we wont tell you what you did wrong"....
