Apparently we're no longer offended

Remember when, just prior to the start of movie or tv show that had sexual content, the announcer would say “This programme is rated Adults Only. It contains sexual material that may offend some people”?  Well it looks as though the “may offend some people” has simply been dropped.  Perhaps they’ve decided that we don’t need to be reminded that some people might take offense at the content they’re about to screen.  Or perhaps they’ve decided that we just really don’t get offended by anything any more.
