We do not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18 you may use the Amazon Services only with the involvement of a parent or guardian."
The discussion is about Amazon Music, if you want to discuss Radio and TV go elsewhere for them discussions. Although radio doesn't allow swearing. And TV has watersheds.
But we are talking about limiting what can be heard and as such TV and radio are exceedingly pertinent.
radio does allow extremely explicit material and not all TV has a watershed - satellite and streaming do not operate watersheds. Trying to confine censorship just to Amazon Music does ignore the real world and other providers of similar services.
For discussion about Amazon Music, let’s use that example, just what do you want to be filtered? Just explicit language. What is explicit language as as we’ve all seen the nanny bot on this forum get a bit over zealous. Have you looked at the artists available on Amazon Music - should their music be omitted simply because of the artist name? Should music be omitted because of the name of the album or track name? Given the difference in meaning of words between the UK and US where would the soundtrack for the film Kick-Ass fall? how about cover art?
Its only about filtering for kids. Give the parent the option to mark as okay if the child wants to listen to something and the parent thinks it isn't explicit etc. This topic is about Amazon, so we can't really discuss anything else, start a new topic if you want to. Sattellite do operate watersheds if you have the option ticked. I have to put a password in to watch watershed programmes on SKY TV.
Better to have an option and able to use it than not have one. You don't have to use it.

I think it is perfectly valid in a discussion such as this to compare a situation or practice on Amazon to other those of sources or sites. Nobody is going to bow to you on here Phil. If you want to control or limit the breadth of a discussion, perhaps you need to start your own blog.
If you would like to sugggest a modification to an Amazon service, then it might be more effective to submit that to Amazon directly rather than post it to a customer-to-customer discussion.
