I think it is useful to remember that many people have different
thresholds for what they find offensive or funny.  So far, it has been
Debian's policy to allow software into the distribution provided there is
someone to maintain it (caveats about varying levels of maintainership
aside).  We are too broad a project to have a single set of values,
and I think it wouldn't be all that useful to try to impose one.

Just my thoughts, and thanks for your interest.
