American objects to the ass in usembassy.state.gov

Iran irate over US censorship: "Because the US filter only looks at the domain names, hundreds of websites featuring banned words have been blocked. That could be fine, but the censoring of 'ass' means Iranians can't get on sites such as usembassy.state.gov and grass-roots.org. Hmm. Other filtered words include 'bush', 'old', 'pic', 'soft', 'hot' and 'tv'. Wouldn't want those pesky Iranians checking weather reports! "
