I’ve take the liberty of removing the exact words in question, but I left in penguin because it’s pretty harmless and I loved that documentary about Emperor penguins in Antarctica. As you can see from the graph, the number of instances have shot up dramatically over the years. It’s probably some SCO frustration. Or Microsoft licensing angst. Or both. Either way, you can hit the link above to get a taste for what’s really in the kernel these days.
