    I had made what I thought was a pretty good gag about the absence of galactic spam about making financial wherewithal on your home planet, but it didn't post — I have a feeling that I made it so realistic it got caught by the spam filter.

    Probably there's room for some kind of follow-up xkcd about gravity wave spam filters accidentally causing a cure for cancer to be held up for 50 years.

    Why are they doing it on what seems like ancient (1950s?) terminal?

    Rube: I tried a joke about products for BEM erectile dysfunction, but that seems to have been trapped too.

    @ D.O. – Linguist aren't the only scientists who find it hard to scrape up grants for new equipment.
