@antijingoist I posted the confused Gandalf... so no OCR detection is in place apparently.

@thegibson @antijingoist I wonder if Sweet Home Alabama is banned because it exposes the political leanings of the town of birmingham, who love the governor.

@docskrzyk @antijingoist I just pinged mudge about it... we'll see if he answers with the word in question.
