    Yes it's a good document to read. This bit made me chuckle:

    14. Personal attacks
    14.1 Any app that is defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited, or likely to place the targeted individual
    or group in harms way will be rejected
    14.2 Professional political satirists and humorists are exempt from the ban on offensive or mean- spirited commentary


    Are there any professional political satirists who are also C/C++/ObjC developers out there that would like to comment? :)

    You mean like the guys who wrote the app for The Colbert Report?

    Assuming it's legit (and it appears to be), I'm surprised how subjective many of the criteria are. There are huge numbers of already-approved apps that could be rejected according to these rules. I guess that's why there's a review board that can be petitioned.

    Here's the incident that prompted this exception:
