xkcd fora Mod Madness Information  

This page will also contain (when I get around to it) lists of wordfilters from previous Furious Doodlings.

If something is in parentheses in italics, the filter was removed before the end of the Madness. Usually this is followed by a replacement filter, but if not, then the italicised-parenthesised filter was temporary.
