You're certainly free to email her and offer her your thoughts, but I doubt she'd pay much attention at this point.

That is probably true. I was just stating my opinion, anyone can take it or leave it. I have confirmed that it is blocked from my workplace, so I imagine others clicking the link in the original article might be seeing the same. Looking through the blogs, someone also mentioned that are seeing the same issues with the site and their corporate policy on profanity.

It all depends on what the ultimate goal is for this site. If she stood up a site and is willing to pay the domain and hosting fees out of her own pocket, without a care who goes to it, more power to her.
However, if she's banking on making money through advertisements, donations, and such, she's cut off a segment of the market and it's rather a blunt name for many folks.

Don't take my word for it, the NYT article discusses this exact issue:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/12/your-money/estate-planning...

Bill Cahill, a lawyer who writes wills for many people who live near me in Brooklyn, said that her legal templates were infinitely better than nothing.

He did lament Ms. Reynolds’s choice of a name for her Web effort. “It seems to me that the whole process deserves more dignity,” he wrote in an e-mail message. While a private admonition to get it together may well be worthwhile, he added, “the coarseness of the communication is not appropriate for the public square.”
