This term came to mind the other day.

I thought of it again today when I noticed the title of an internet discussion of an incident was changed, from a specific term for a violent act to a broader non-specific one but the discussion continued about the same acts.

Has it always been so ?

It has been so for as long as the source's agenda is satisfied.

Which means any reportage since the dawn of language that has been expurgated or edited toward a specific end.

The eponymous practice continues...

...and they even screwed up THAT article.

Wherefore art thou means 'where are you?',

Not "why."

I can't tell if this thread is some kind of stylized equivocation or I'm just a little daft today.

Tactical Bowdlerization is best.

Tactical ANYTHING is best.

Or so I've heard, recently...

I have a pair of white gold frames from the 1800s with round lenses, but we're slightly off topic here.

At least no one has made the Flashlight into a Fleshlight.

Oh, Letterman, don't search on that.

For the love of the gods, don't.

For the record I'm going to guess that most people use the word "edit" instead of bowdlerise (which is underlined in red as I type this)...
