Ah heck, let's all just join forces and write the whole list monthly and each word at least once a week.

Think positively, we'd be doing our part to provide government jobs.

thats a good idea. help out our country and make jobs for all those government employees available. scary thing is, monitoring will probably be done by a handful of computers and whose soul purpose is to filter traffic and pick out the words and the associated account and produce a list of possible criminals. now the fbi, can pretty much have a list of anyone in the world they want to investigate, and when doing so would violate their rights, the list gets querried and the person whose rights are about to be violated is found. Now, the Federal Government has created a neat little system that enables its forces to violate any ones rights. Wow, and we are ok with this? oh wait, nothing we can do about it, really. and so, to the monitors, i say Fuck You. airplane,grids,pork,delay, hooray.

I agree. A computer is probably handling most of this. These days, that is possible. I have a Core i7 6-core system with hyperthreading, meaning that Windows sees 12 processors. They should have an 8-core, 16-thread processor out by now, and if not, on the way, and there are motherboards that can handle 2 of them, probably more if you set up a server rack. So that will be powerful, and just for regular citizens. There is no telling what computing power the government has.

I see "Artistic Assassins" made the list but "Gloop" did not.

WTF?

How many posters on Topix? If we could assign each person on here one word---and have them write that one word at least once a day for a month, we could have the gubmint going nuts....just a thought...
