    This keyboard brought to you by the self-righteous, puritanical intolerance of apple.

    Provocative words aren’t the only ones iPhone software won’t correct. Our analysis found over 14,000 words that are recognized as words when spelled accurately, but that won’t be corrected even when they are only slightly misspelled. However, the vast majority of these words are technical or very rarely used words: “nephrotoxin,” “sempstress,” “sheepshank,” or “Aesopian,” to name a few.

    But among this list as well are more frequently used (and sensitive) words such as “abortion,” “abort,” “rape,” “bullet,” “ammo,” “drunken,” “drunkard,” “abduct,” “arouse,” “Aryan,” “murder,” and “virginity.”

    You can't even put them in your own dictionary? What if it's a made up word? Kid had some funny expressions when learning to talk - we still use them. They aren't profane or obscene, just unusual. Put them in our dictionaries.

    Kid got mad about autocorrect on some of her cuss words - told her to add them to her dictionary and now they show up. She's using some HTC phone in the UK.
