The follow-up to the Heirs of Hell article about the Koran, Islam and unbelievers is now online on my messageboard and the spblog.

I've also added some more archive stuff in the online publications section of the steveplatt.net website. This includes my 2000 publication for Channel 4, 'Film censorship in Britain'. I came across the British Board of Film Censors league table of swear words while uploading this. Interesting that not even Channel 4 was bold enough to go into print with the 'stronger' words. I'm sure you don't need me to spell them out.

The BBFC categories of swear words:

Very mild: damn, hell, God, sod

Mild: bloody, bastard, piss, pissed, shit, son-of-a-bitch, bugger, bollocks, screw, crap, arse, shag, slag, slut, whore, arsehole, tosser, Jesus, Christ

Moderate: wanker, prick, bitch

Strong: fuck

Coarse: stronger sexual swearwords
