I'll never understand why some people think standards are so difficult to cope with.
Having a list doesn't prevent you from allowing people to use ****er in the context of huck finn. In fact, the word ****er is already one of the few explicitly bannable words here, but that didn't prevent either of us from using it in a clinical context.

Having a list does prevent people from saying they had no notice, though. There's simply no justification for preserving this level of vagueness.
