Mind the filter!

Michael Quinion warns readers of World Wide Words (#655, 9/5/09):

RUDE WORDS  The F-Word may not be the ultimate obscenity that it was once considered, but business e-mail filters still routinely block messages containing it. As next week’s issue will contain a review of Jesse Sheidlower’s The F Word, which will include the word and its compounds a number of times, there is a greater than usual chance that you may not receive it by e-mail. In that case, pop over to the World Wide Words site, where you will find the issue at http://www.worldwidewords.org/nl/zyun.htm.

Sigh.
