I was swishing around my mind wondering if I'd be up to doing NaNo this year and I went to the Nano site. I think it was in the terms where a mention was made about language and the fact that many schools had filters that blocked material even if it had one bad word.

That made me start wondering what a bad word was. I have a free book up on Smashwords, aimed mainly at young people. It has one (1) damn and one (1) bitch.

Does anyone know if these are bad enough to trip a filter. If they are, and I altered to d*** and b**** would they get through? I get far more views than downloads, but I suppose that's to be expected.
