prohibited language in text.

as if this attempt weren't scary enough, microsoft and a number of other blog providers--including, according the NPR report i'm listening to, yahoo and google, the parent of blogger--have built censorship tools into their interfaces. words not allowed in blog or post titles include:

falun gong
dalai lama
human rights

given the contexts in which freedom is invoked these days, it's a little bit hard for me to defend the word with a straight face--i keep thinking of john ashcroft and lots of bunting. still, though. i'm chilled.
