Moby Dick BY Melville, Herman

In a real head-scratcher of a case, a Texas school district banned the book from its Advanced English class lists because it “conflicted with their community values” in 1996. Community values are frequently cited in discussions over challenged books by those who wish to censor them.

Apple’s censors even considered Herman Melville’s classic, Moby Dick, inappropriate because he wrote his classic novel about a sperm whale. The word “sperm” was censored and replaced thusly in the iBookstore description of Melville’s iconic book with “s***m.” Interestingly, the title word “Dick” was deemed okay for publication.
