    This is nothing major, but I found this a little weird.

    Take a look at the Top Songs list. As of right now, "Gives You Hell" by The All-American Rejects is at the top. Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" is third. Between the words "hell" and "suck," which would you think is more likely to get the ** treatment? According to Apple, that would be "suck," which is "s**k" on the listing.

    Whose grandma got a job doing content filtering on iTunes? That just seems like the weirdest word to censor, especially since you can read the word quite easily on the single's album cover.

    I think it's pretty weird how a word like a*s is censored. Miss-spelt words like fukka don't get censored so I assume there is a list of words that are automatically censored
