A Question of Taste

Ian Watkins of Lostprophets is back in the news with the Independent Police Complaints Commission report on South Wales Police. This raises the issue of what subject matter should be included in quizzes.

Some things are quite obvious, and we would never have any questions directly referring to any crimes of a sexual nature. This goes without saying, but after that it isn't so clear cut.

Ian Watkins is still the ex-singer in the Lostprophets; Jimmy Saville is still the ex-presenter of Jim'll Fix It. So can these questions appear in a quiz?

We have taken the view that they shouldn't, and with each conviction we have removed references to the perpetrator.
