Jillian C. York

Jillian C. York is a writer and activist.

Creamy barf cocktail? OICU812.

Gross, right? Now that I have your attention, I’d like to point you in the direction of Pakistan’s new list of banned words.

In fact, the list is so good that I’m going to risk my blog once again getting incorrectly categorized by content filters just so you can see the whole thing:

Content Filtering ENGLISH

You’re welcome.

Now, if you want to do something about it, see Bytes For All’s excellent article on moral policing in Pakistan.

  1. Wow – that is quite the thorough list – I tried busting it and I couldn’t – the folly with this though is swear words come out of nowhere so the committee has to be working round the clock to keep up – or they should probably just have an RSS feed of urban dictionary.

    I have a question about the “Jesus Christ” – are they banning it for religious reasons or because it is used as a swear?

    Well done Jillian – you’ve gotten your blog banned by Pakistan for ever :-)

  2. Somewhere, George Carlin is weeping tears of joy.
