Re: 1354: "Heartbleed Explanation"

Re: xkcd.com/1096/ "Clinically Studied Ingredient" is offens

By all means ban all words that could be though of as offensive, It will make it easier for people to learn the language, in fact lets just invent a new language where its impossible to offend anyone beacuse you can't express your opinion, we can call it newspeak.
