Compressed Data: Law Newsletter Has to Sneak Past Filters Censorship4/9/2001; 4:35:04 PM From the people-are-always-smarter-then-computers dept:'There is nothing wrong with David Carney's spell-checker. It is on purpose that in his e-mail newsletter, Tech Law Journal, he misspells words like sex (sez) and pornography (pormography) and camouflages the names of computer viruses. If he did not, he explained last week in an editor's note, his journal would never get past the computers at readers' offices that screen incoming e-mail messages for references to sex or network security.'The really interesting question here is how much did those companies spend on those filters?
