If someone put a picture of someone shoving a gerbil up their behind on
the page for "gerbil", we'd remove it. So yes, we do modify content in
response to (or anticipation of) offense from the audience.
Actually we usually do it because of the encyclopaedia; we tend to
remove links to "BASDSITES" because they don't have a real relevance
to whatever article they're insinuated into, and we remove pictures of
people shoving gerbils up their ass because generally these aren't
relevant to an article about gerbils that has no actual text
concerning the act of shoving a gerbil up one's rectum.
