Poster for Saw II unacceptable?

Here's something you don't see every day. Apparently the MPAA not only regulates movies and trailers, but also the posters for them. According to E! Online, the poster for Saw II has been deemed unacceptable because it shows severed fingers to indicate the roman numeral two. I actually agree with the MPAA's decision on this, primarily because movie posters are plastered up everywhere, and young children will be able to see them. If you want to make a nasty, violent, depraved movie, go right ahead. As soon as the appropriate audience plunks down the admission price and goes in the theater, pander away. But for a poster, which is something that people of all ages will be able to see, I'm afraid I have to side with those who prefer discretion over shock value.
