Voice Remote Censoring

I recently switched my TV Box to the voice system. Although quite convenient, it is censoring my voice commands; I enjoy a band on Youtube - STRFKR - and no matter how I pronounce this band I get a message telling me that it cannot complete the search with "that type of language". Seriously Xfinity? I'm a 50something year old and find this censoring ridiculous especially since that censoring feature could be included in the Parental Controls portion of the settings if one chooses to enable it. The engineers need to take a look at fixing this due to the limitations it causes on the functionality of the system and the limits of the user to enjoy the programming that they choose with the same ease as other "approved" voice commands. "that type of language" - give me a break.

Give us a break!  That is not a word, so it is not stored on list for "Voice" commands.

Just type it in on You Tube search field. It will be there and show up as "recomended" or separate channel category.
