US concedes that we may now name .us TLDs with 7 banned words

Yes, the "seven dirty words" made famous by the comedian George Carlin in 1972 were until just a few weeks ago also banned on the internet.
Well, the part of it actively managed by Uncle Sam, anyway: its .us registry.
The US government's Department of Commerce owns .us and contracts out its administration to Neustar.
As part of that process, the seven banned words were written into the first contract signed in 2001, and been there since, meaning you couldn't register a .us domain name containing those naughty strings.
Well fuck.eu too
I guess we nearly done them all now, at-least the funny ones.
Also, <insert> sarcastic remark "last bastion of free speech" </insert>
and so on and so forth.
