i think it's offensive that Urban Dictionary uses a broad term like offensive to ban definitions when they should be more spesific.Many slang words are dysphemistic and or morally offensive morallity and causing anger or annoyance are the things that ushally keep new words out of a regular dictonary. I was under the impression that this was where to look for those words. perhaps Urban Dictionary could add Juvinile as a reason to remove a definition. morrality or disgust should have nothing to do with wether a word exists in your dictonary or not.
