If anything I am offended that you would think I would be offended. What do you take me for.

Ha.

Leo, I agree with you compeletly, And I see no reason for it at all.....So from now on there will be no adult content in the magazine.....

I feel that some may like the edge but certainly wont stop buying it without that edge and others will be offended by it wont buy it so this change has been made.

There are some other changes in music, the flow, treatment of ads that will be changed in the April issue of Reel Magic.

Every issue of Reel Magic I have found things that I just don't like....and the Febuary issue is no different...we will continue to work to make this the best value in magic today!

Thank you, Ted. I'd stopped buying Reel Magic because of this. It's good to know that I can start picking it up again.

Who cares really about language. What ever happened to sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me. Ted I love your Mag but censorship is something I find a tad offensive. It makes me feel like I am a notch below the few that do not approve of such vulgaritys. If you are going to put people on camera to give a column they should not have to change for anyone. I do not buy Reel to hear people swear but I also don't buy it to have people being told not to.I personaly do not swear ever. Not once in the past ten years and back then I was given a 20 to do it but I like to know that I can and if people are offended then that is fine by me. They get to realize something about themselves in relation to everyone else.

I would not change a thing.

Is it censorship when the editor makes policy, or when a government does it? This is a question which has been argued back & forth with no sign of letting up.

I want a kid to to be able to watch this...its my decision...i don't think it has a negative impact on what were trying to accomplish and its better for me if more want to see it...so this is my policy, I don't have to do this but I'm going to...

there really is not a good reason for us to include adult content....

look it, reel magic is the best deal in magic and I don't want to lose guys because we cant refrain from using the f bomb...so we don't use it anymore ....

I promise all of you that this thing is going to get really good over the next year....

Except that this *is* for adults (not in the pornographic sense)....

You could always *bleep* and black box the mouth if it is a real issue....

Language is language. "Naughty" words only matter if you let them matter...

Of course if it's not in the pornographic sense, why have pornographic words?

Words can have many different meanings. Many, many words we use commonly today were horrifically obscene in their original context. That doesn't stop us from using them, unknowing of their disgusting origins.

Language mutates, changes over time. The words don't matter, what does matter is intent. If someone is using words to deliberately wound, they reveal their own pettiness, bias and insecurity.

*We* control our own speech, our own ideas and how we wish to be affected by others words.

To be horrified by an utterance of a word seems ridiculous absent the context. Are there appropriate times/venues for specific language? Certainly, but once you start banning words, it is a short step to banning books and ultimately restricting free speech...

To resort to what some would consider "foul" language is not unlike raising your voice when you should reinforce your argument. It has value (shock-value perhaps) but in some circles establishes character and opens dialogue that might otherwise be restricted.

That being said, as Ecclesiates reads, "to everything there is a season". Knowing the appropriate time/location/audience is the key to avoid excessive alienation. You don't want to offend too many as you'll have no one to talk with, but choice of language and specific expression of ideas will also draw those interested in your ideas and method of delivery...

Seriously??

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just surprised. Even at its wildest I find Reel Magic MUCH tamer than Street Magic (which you contributed to), and even that seemed tame enough.

I worked "a real job" about 10 years ago and in an e-mail I put the word "hell". One fellow made a Federal case out of it. On and on about all sorts if moral stuff.

Two years later he got caught cheating on his wife. Interesting what lurks in the hearts of men....

Anyway, I'm from NY, so I didn't even notice there was blue language on Reel magic.

And you're wondering why I stopped writing for Street Magic?

To be honest Koz, I never noticed any swearing on previous issues. I do think it is a good idea to not have any strong language because kids might be watching.

Currently I buy the dvd from a dealer, to support them. If you don't make as much per issue selling wholesale I would rather buy directly from you.

Keep up the great work,
