The Perils of Auto-Replace

From Salon.com:

The conservative American Family Association has an editorial policy that auto-replaces “homosexual” for “gay.” Leaving aside the appropriateness of such a switch, such a policy can result in the following news piece:

Tyson Homosexual easily won his semifinal for the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials and seemed to save something for the final later Sunday.

His wind-aided 9.85 seconds was a fairly cut-and-dry performance compared to what happened a day earlier. On Saturday, Homosexual misjudged the finish in his opening heat and had to scramble to finish fourth, then in his quarterfinal a couple of hours later, ran 9.77 to break the American record that had stood since 1999. […]

Homosexual didn’t get off to a particularly strong start in the first semifinal, but by the halfway mark he had established a comfortable lead…. Asked how he felt, Homosexual said: “A little fatigued.”

    I decided my readers were right. It wasn’t a good idea to have that up on my blog.

    Yeah, I wouldn’t put something like that up on a blog if there is any way real life people can trace your blog back to you.
