Banned words

A few years ago I was primarily responsible for removing the ban of the “seven dirty words” as .nz domain names. There were multiple reasons such as banning some sugggests you approve of others, non english swear words, alternatives one can’t control such as motherfu.cker.co.nz instead of motherfucker.co.nz etc etc.

Anyway Yahoo bans certain words in their e-mail addresses. As a Kallahar found out she could not have her name in her email address because it contains the letters a l l a h. Now do they ban all names for God. Well no they allow God, Jesus and Satan etc etc.

Overly sensitive I think.

Hat Tip: NZ Pundit

UPDATE: My lobbying power is now so great that merely the thought of me posting on this issue forced a backdown by Yahoo 🙂
