That which must not be spoken
Take any story at Yahoo! news, dear reader, say this one. Try to comment, using the word "Islam". Your comment will immediately appear with '@#$%' replacing the word 'Islam'. The name of any other religion will appear as normal: Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Jainism, Bahai'ism, Buddhism, and Hare Krishna all are displayed as typed. Only one religion in the world cannot be mentioned by name.
Then watch and be amazed, within an hour or two, as your entire comment with the offensive '@#$%' word is completely deleted.
Please compare and contrast with the blood-curdling, rank antisemitism allowed in the comments of the articles at the same news site mentioned here.
