The whole reaction to this has been ridiculous. Those 30,000 complaints all stem from the moral indignation from the Daily Mail, amongst others. At first, two people complained because Ross said 'f***', and that was it, but since then evryone's been jumping on this moral bandwagon, basically because everyone else is. Tasteless? Perhaps, but people talking about prosecuting them for god's sake, is daft. It was a radio prank that got (characteristically) out of hand, and they deserved a telling off, they gave an apology, but resignations and threats of sackings? It's been blown ridiculously out of proportion considering what a relatively insignificant issue it is, and I think we can mainly blame the media and their hand-wringing hangers-on for that.
