all depends where you live in considering 12 year olds are allowed to see such content 15 year olds bascialy can see it all it all boils down to the Free world and none free world
Um, no. It has little to do with "free" and everything to do with people's personal thresholds. Some people would scream bloody murder and call up the nearest attorney or bored reporter if their child was subjected to a word like the old school term for a donkey (now more commonly used to refer to a part of the human body). Cryptic and Atari don't want to have to deal with that drama, so they use a very simple method to protect themselves from those morons.
Remember, the way you're using the word, "free" means you CAN do something. It doesn't mean you should. I'm guessing (and it's just a guess, I'm not casting aspersions on you) the reason you even asked the question in the original post is because you're well under the age specified and you're somewhat peeved that you can't participate in this particular reindeer game (didn't see Sonaos complain about it, for example). Don't sweat it, it's not nearly as important as you think.
