This sentence surprised me in quite some ways:

- "besides": besides what? Do not swear, and apart from that, some
people receive it over radio. There seems to be something missing.

- Are there really people known to receive these lists over packet

- Is swearing actually illegal on packet radio? What authority issues
and enforces those rules?

- Is it actually true that when sending encoded data over this medium,
it's illegal when it can be decoded in some way into a foul word?

Since I know virtually nothing about packet radio, I'd really appreciate
some light shed on these things :)
