I recently came accross Gnaughty (aka Fast and Easy Porn Downloader),
I'm seriously thinking to file a ticket against it. It can be used to
download p0rn, yuck !
What sort of content should we provide as replacement ?

Is this a joke ? On the one hand, we provide gnaughty, on the other
hand, we are seriously thinking patching Gestikk for the use of the
F-U-C-K word in an obscure dialog. Non coherent, either throw gnaughty
away and patch Gestikk, or just let it be.

It's not really that offensive (sexist, racist, homophobic etc...), it's
not installed by default so it won't hurt our image. Anyone offended
should go complain to upstream, Fedora maintainers have no time to waste
on such petty issues.
If you don't like it, don't yum it first.
