7+ 402 vs. The 1st Amendment ...

We all swear as the use of foul language has been part of culture since the beginning of time as epithets, when properly used, convey meaning in the clearest and most suscinct way possible. From Shakespeare to the esteemed Georg Carlin, the ability for man to get it on regarding the expression of emotion through the use of dirty words knows no bounds. 

 With this in mind, it seems the connect to digital and AI regarding said epithets is inevitable.

Carlin change history ... for the better.

I don't know that there was a "Eureka!" moment or anything like that. [...] On these other things, we get into the field of hypocrisy. Where you really cannot pin down what these rules they want to enforce are. It's just impossible to say "this is a blanket rule". You'll see some newspapers print "f blank blank k". Some print "f asterisk asterisk k". Some put "f blank blank blank". Some put the word "bleep". Some put "expletive deleted". So there's no real consistent standard. It's not a science. It's a notion that they have and it's superstitious. These words have no power. We give them this power by refusing to be free and easy with them. We give them great power over us. They really, in themselves, have no power. It's the thrust of the sentence that makes them either good or bad.[4] - George Carlin - 2004] 

The 1st Amendment, the most important Amendment of them all.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Any questions?
