Reddit Is Fun removed from Google Play

So here is the problem, if “Reddit Is Fun” violates the following terms:

Your application shouldn’t contain content that displays (via text, images, video, or other media) or links to:
(…) Pornography, obscenity, nudity, or sexual activity

Doesn’t this mean that any web browser on the Android platform also violates this rule, including Chrome, Firefox, Opera. This may also explain why Stumbleupon has removed the ability from it’s client to allow users to search for custom tag strings.

Apple of course has a similar clause in it’s terms also.

But anyway if you want Reddit is Fun for your Android device you know have to go to the effort of installing the APK yourself without the market. Thanks for making life harder for user Google, no choice for you.
