A recent question contained an image that was removed as offensive.
The removed image "spoke a 1000 words," illustrated the problem and even reflected some of the technical issues of the problem that were not mentioned in the question. The image was highly relevant and I believe it was not superfluous or intended to be offensive.
In addition to being an actual example of the issue at hand, it also illustrated a related problem: You need to filter words that are similar or can be used a stand-ins for offensive words.
In this case, the letters "DIK", were visible as the offending term. With the addition of another letter, I can think of two offensive terms. This is an issue for those who need to employ such filters--How do you scan for modified terms?
The phrase that replaced the image ("a bunch of swear words and offensive terms.") does not reflect this issue and thus detracts from the question.
Obscenity filters are a common, real-world problem and of course important in the games industry. No one benefits from reducing awareness of the problem scope here.
So where is the line? Are SE's current CoC prohibitive of informational discussion in favor of not offending anyone?
I had to think about the purpose of this question for a moment... I suppose it's a request of all of the active editors under whose care we often enter.
Thank you for your contribution, but please try to make sure your edits do not detract from the knowledge sharing process.
I'd like to believe that we can ask mature questions and post mature answers, in a valid context.
