Hmm, I created a new page as a test, containing just one word which I
picked from BadContent.  Also created one with a word from
LocalBadContent.  The page was saved OK and displayed OK.  Could it be
that that wiki site lacks a configuration switch to enable filtering
based on (Local)BadContent?

If this mechanism were working, I suppose it could be highly effective.
Alas I am not administrating that site myself, but at least I can edit
