Finally! A font-based solution to the Scunthorpe problem

I've mentioned the Scunthorpe problem a couple times previously--how computerized attempts to block profanity inevitably result in silly false positives. Today it is with glee I note that a kindly font designer has taken heed of the plight of the town of Scunthorpe and implemented a rather silly font that automatically blocks most swears, but allows the name "Scunthorpe" to remain fully viewable. You'll want to click on through and learn more about this, I am sure.
