Contains Profanity

The artifact contains one or more instances of profanity.

Where the Unnecessary Profanity flag identifies non-essential use of profanity, and the Excessive Profanity flag identifies journalistic artifacts that contain excessive or repeated profanity, the Contains Profanity flag identifies content that contains any profanity whatsoever.


The Contains Profanity flag is an informational marker that identifies journalistic artifacts that contain profanity for any reason, including acceptable reasons such as reporting accurately on the substance of a heated third-party dispute. Therefore, no value judgment is attached to this flag.
