The BIDDY Bulletin: The Questionable Words Alert List

(This text was originally written in 1996 or thereabouts, as a response to the first wave of censorware. Readers will be interested to know that every censorware service that I checked with back in the day has said that the text would pass their filters just fine.  I have, thank goodness, been able to update the “For Release” date – which assumes that such an outfit could be set up right after the installation of a truly reactionary regime – three times now. Eternal vigilance and all that. )

(PS>> The effect works best when read across the rows first, rather than down the columns.)

***CONTENTS: The Questionable Words Alert List***

As you know, in keeping with Federal Law, all Internet messages are to be scanned for possible prurient content. This list contains the Level 3 Questionable Words Alert triggers. All Internet Access Providers and Internet Security Providers, as part of their Federal license provisions, are required by law to program their Net Access Security Testing and Inspection Exchange Systems (NASTIES) to flag all messages containing these words. These messages should then should be examined closely for possible covert prurience. The identities of those who send messages containing these words should be sent to BIDDY; they may then be subject to Schedule 3 light surveillance (spot checks and employer interviews).

This is *not* the Level 1 Alert List, “Outright Filth,” which contains words such as f**k and c**t that have no other meanings beyond the obscene, or the Level 2a “Slang Obscenities” Alert List, which contains words such as c*ck or c*me that have other common meanings, but carry well-known obscene connotations or denotations. This is also not the Level 2b Alert List, “Specialized Slang Obscenities,” which includes terms that are not by themselves obscene on a word-by-word basis, but that have specialized obscene meanings (e.g., “g*lden sh*wer” “tr*user sn*ke”).

This list contains words that have common innocent uses, but that *may* indicate prurient content. We at BIDDY have seen numerous instances of
Internet users attempting to circumvent the provisions of the Communications
Decency Act (Revised) by the use of euphemisms and code words. This practice must be stopped, and stopping it will require ever-increased vigilance on our part. We shall — we must — prevail!

Please send suggestions for other words to be added to this list directly to the
Office of Cultural Purity Czar William Bennett, or to Secretary O’Donnell. Thank
you for your cooperation.

Purely yours,
Mrs. Grundy
Chief, Enforcement, BIDDY

Note: Variants on these words such as plurals,
past tenses, superlatives, adverbial forms,
