who knew "alan" was a swear word?! what is the world coming to, I wonder...

Seriously though, black-listing profanity filters NEVER do their job as

You just have to look at the emails that spam-filters miss to see how it's
always possible to find a combination that isn't filtered. Though

should be applied to profanity filters instead of the out-and-out
blacklists of words/part-words.
