Banned Words

You'll notice a new widget on the Sidebar there. It's a list of words I won't tolerate in comments. Not for any particular reason, and it isn't a policy, per se, it's just a personal whim. I am open to suggestions though. The list so far contains:

  • Straw
  • Strawman
  • Ad hominem
  • Coniption (Sic)
  • (Sic)
  • Specious
  • Trunk
  • Beatles/The Beatles
  • Any member or song of the Beatles/Beatles
  • Twonk

Ross Sharp said...

Information technology consultants
Software developers
Computer programmers
Queens Counsel (sic)

Iain Hall said...

This is totally Bizarre Keri and very silly

Keri said...

Yes, Iain, that IS the point. Bit of fun never harmed anyone.

John - If I knew how to ban you I would. Filthy latte' sipping lefty.

Ross - Will update. But you're on your first warning, my friend. No sicing.

Tobias Ziegler said...

I notice you used the word "straw" in the title of a recent post. What is it with teh Left and hypocrisy?

Keri said...

Tobias - I'll thank you to note I said banned in the comments.


Dam Buster - I'm fine with pegging and fleshlights, GTFC provides an endless source of amusement, but I might include Optometrists.

Michelle said...

What about "the"?

Hall: "This is totally Bizarre Keri and very silly"

You should've used a 'sarcasm' tag, Keri.

Just noticed something in the banned words widget - should it be facist (sic) or fascist?

Obviously facial appearance is important (much to my detriment), but I'm not sure I'm ready to embrace facism and would be happy to see it banned.
