Brain Dead US Software gets sold to Brain Dead Executives the world over.
No one is immune from this, except that any form of Security Software will 
soon be illegal in Britain, if the legislation goes into law that I mentioned 
in another thread & the original article at

http://news.ft.com/ft/gx.cgi/ftc?pagename=View&c=Article&cid=FT3BJ4X1VLC&liv 
e=true&tagid=ZZZC00L1B0C&Collid=ZZZ96PECC0C

But I hazard a guess that the British will find a reality, of hackers & 
viruses run amuck & it illegal to combat them, to be far more oppressive than 
the reality of creeping Mad People Disease that we have here, in which there 
are still many islands of sanity.

What we may need is a reverse engineered version of ScanMail that we use 
before sending our e-mail out, that operates like a spelling & grammar 
checker.

This phrase is objectionable to any idiots at Trend Phraseology ... here are 
some substitutes that will go right by them ...

So you replace "Dick and Jane" with "Dick*&*and*&*Jane" or some such nonsense 
that makes the text readable by inserting odd ball characters that will not 
be parsed by ScanMail, or cause troubles for HTML.

The checker will have to be up to date with all the different versions of 
software created by brain dead software companies that are popular among 
brain dead software buyers.
