Blacklisted words

I wanted to post information about a site whose URL contains the string secure-my-email (without hyphens). This got displayed as secure*********

Edwin, our absentee landlord, has a list of words/strings he censors out here, which contains much more than good Anglo-Saxon swear words. The list is kept top secret (I'm sure it's PGP-encrypted and stored on a server in Switzerland), created some 15 years ago and unchanged since.

So we end up with a ridiculous situation that 'secure my email' is a banned expression in an email discussion forum, if the three words are concatenated.
