Apparently that word is automatically deleted from titles. Coincidentally, I had just tried submitting an unrelated article about Miiverse drawing detection and had to replace it with "P*nis".

This has to be because vaginas look like parens (). It's all part of the Lisp Conspiracy!

I find that very disheartening. Would HN be over-run with penis talk if it weren't for this blockade?

"Penis" seems like a very high probability spam term. You don't often see spam promising to increase the size of your vagina.

That's because around half the population already have standing offers to do so.

Good zinger!
