so many boners, so little time

According to Twitter, yesterday:

there is an online vertebrate palaeontology conference going on right now, and the automatic censor is blocking anyone from using the word “bone”

There’s no word on which bone-headed virtual conference software tool was responsible for this enormous boner. But another participant reported:

It’s also censoring “Hell,” so no one can mention the Hell Creek Formation. They’re now referring to it as the “Heck Creek Formation.”

This sort of stupid nonsense is what happens when you build nanny filters into your core tools. Somebody needs to tell tech companies to cut it the hell out!
