I am working on a project which categorizes the different articles by its objectionable content types. Is there a list of objectionable content types available in english?

I tried googling it, but the closest thing i found was this from wordnik. Its quite different, where it shows the words similar to the word objectionable, but what i want is different words those categorizes different objectionable contents?

check out the list which shows different objectionable contents (its not 100% correct, feel free to correct).

{
    "Objections":[
        {
            "name":"Inaccurate",
            "desc":"The statements expressed in the underlying content is not correct. "
        },
        {
            "name":"Misleading",
            "desc":"The content is giving the wrong idea or impression"              
        },
        {
            "name":"Offensive",
            "desc":"The content is very offensive and hurtful"
        },
        {
            "name":"Controversial",
            "desc":"The statements expressed in the underlying content is controversial"              
        },
        {
            "name":"Derogatory",
            "desc":"The expressed content in the article is intentioally offensive and demeriting the subject"
        },

Objectionable is in the eye of the beholder. Which is why people do all the things on your list in the first place. –  RegDwigнt Sep 29 '12 at 11:19
    
I don't think there's an established list of objectionable content types. Furthermore, I think this question is off-topic, not because it's controversial or inflammatory, but because it's not "reasonably scoped." That all said, your list looks like a pretty good start, although I'd probably change "Terror" to "Terrorist," and I might be worried that too many news articles might get tagged as controversial (almost anything in the news is controversial in one way or another). –  J.R.

@RegDwighт, Objectionable is in the eye of the beholder, yeah sure. But there are things that are globally accepted Objectionable contents, for ex: the recent anti muslim propoganda film. I am trying to find the generic globally acceptable objectionable content types –  RameshVel Sep 29 '12 at 11:24

@RegDwighт, what an irony. the question about Objectionable content is considered as objectionable here. –  RameshVel Sep 29 '12 at 11:26

Exactly. Your list itself is objectionable. And so would be anybody else's. Why is derogatory a separate item from offensive? How is offensive different from objectionable? And if you put terrorism, anti-government, and adult on the same list, why not as well add broccoli and orange cars? There is no such thing as "globally objectionable". With just a couple million views, that video is more accurately labeled "globally unknown". But again, that is out of scope of this site. As far as the English language is concerned, objectionable means exactly one thing: "objectionable". –  RegDwigнt Sep 29 '12 at 11:56
