... or cial1s. This is one of those points where blocks become
bothersome, because automatic, data-based text filtering is so
limited, and really good text analysis tools have a high overhead,
thus are not suited for cgi (or email-filter) processing.
I'm happy the blocklist code is in a recipe :) I prefer to limit
who's editing and trust them, rather than censor what they're writing.
