twin_blades_2Last week we saw ImageWind being removed from Marketplace for not providing enough control over the unfiltered images being delivered via their app from Twitpic.

It seems this will be a problem that will eventually go away.  One of the new features in Mango will be parental controls, with developers being able to mark their app as M-rated, and this restriction being enforced by the phone.
