“female hygiene accessory”
Whoever signed off on banning that must've been a real douche.
The Mongolian government this week released guidelines on over 700 keywords which are now banned for websites in the country, and in so doing revealed to the world one of the most inventive list of swearwords since Roger’s Profanisaurus. The list of 774 Russian, Mongolian and English words published by the country’s telecoms …
I guarantee that I can swear in perfect English without using a single word that is not allowed before the kiddies go to bed.
Go on, it is at least as worthwhile as reading the reg site. Also, if anyone calls you out on your assertion you will know that you need to avoid t1, XOR, clumsy, guts, and female dog (although bitch is ok) in addition to more conventional profanity.

I would suggest that your assertion of being able to "swear" using child-friendly vocabulary is perhaps an over-simplification. "Swearing" as it relates to invective (as opposed to taking an oath) is generally understood as requiring the use of "swear words", which are those words one is not supposed to utter within hearing of the young.
I completely agree that castigation (berating, reprimanding, rebuking etc.) is easily achieved without needing to revert to obscenities though. It is also generally more satisfying to do so, at least in my experience, especially so when the recipient is unused to such use of language :)
They banned XOR (no. 566)? What would George Boole think!
Seems anyone named Dick (no. 488) or Al (no. 421) is banished. As is the gardening implement, the hoe (319). Personal disorganisers are banned too (no. 306).
And don't you Americans even think about gloating about your T1 (no. 706) Internet connections!
I was working on a SAML system, some of our users were getting failed logins occasionally.
SAML (in some of the profiles) ends up generating redirect URLs with encrypted messages in base64 embedded in them, and we eventually worked out these customers were using a filtering proxy that was excluding URLs with swear words in.
Cue a swear word filtering library; when we generate a URL, we check to make sure there are no accidental "fuck"'s in the URL (regenerating it if necessary), and a bunch of highly amusing commits.
