Unlikely banned words.

#1
I just recieved a PM from someone who referred to a set of bathroom scales that were marketed under a famous brandname. However the brand came out as ****. I only realised when I quoted the message and the actual text was revealed:

w e i g h t w a t c h e r s.

I'll type it again normally so you can check this yourselves:

weightwatchers.

Curiously leaving just a space after the first letter doesn't help either:

w eightwatchers.

Do GCO and BCO consider this swearing? :omg:
Is someone a little over sensitive about his weight? ;)

Are there any other odd banned words out there?

Perhaps this is part of the policy drive to prevent "zero-sized COs" being seen as positive role-models?
