Social media and potentially offensive material....how/do you mediate?

Yesterday I was reading this post in NY Magazine.....about Disney hiring David Mamet to help write a new movie version of The Diary of Anne Frank. Now I don't know how anyone who is familiar with Mamet's work doesn't have a moment of what that could sound like flashing in their head. I certainly did before I even read the post. What stunned me though was the comments about it. Many people found it offensive and "not funny".

This brought up the question for me about social media these days and the good use of freedom of speech it seems to allow.

What I'm not able to find, however, is anything related to policies with FORBID special characters. We have a security specialist in IT who is insisting that the password policy must forbid special characters, because "special characters give users too many options to forget."

an interface vocabulary

I'm developing a taxonomy with several vocabularies for a client. One
vocabulary is interface objects/GUI for web and software, so it crosses web
content, web application and client application terms. I was wondering if
folks would mind commenting. It's quite rough (and perhaps you might enjoy

I'd love:

new terms I don't yet have
comments on relationships (I.e. that's not a control, it's a X)
and anything else you have to say.

the notation is traditional LIS..

BT = Broader Term (I.e. parent)
NT = Narrower Term (I.e.
