I hear the FCC wrote a WordPress plugin. This is what I expected it to be.
class FCC_Safe_Harbor_Indecency_Plugin {
static $instance;
private $seven_dirty = array(
'shit(s|ty|head)?' => '{BLEEP}$1',
'piss(es|ed|ing)?' => '{BLEEP}$1',
'fuck(s|er|ers|ing|ed)?' => '{BLEEP}$1',
'cunt([ys])?' => '{BLEEP}$1',
'cock(sucker[s]?)' => '{BLEEP}$1',
'(mother)fuck(s|er|ers|ing|ed)?' => '$1{BLEEP}$2',
'tit(s|ty|ties)?' => '{BLEEP}$1',
public function __construct() {
$hour = date( 'G', current_time( 'timestamp' ) );
if ( $hour < 22 && $hour > 6 ) {
add_filter( 'the_content', array( $this, 'the_content' ) );
public function the_content( $content ) {
foreach ( $this->seven_dirty as $word => $replacement ) {
$content = preg_replace( '#\b' . $word . '\b#i', $replacement, $content );
return $content;
new FCC_Safe_Harbor_Indecency_Plugin;

Too funny :)


This is amazing!


Shouldn't the client's time zone be used?


@skeltoac Oddly, I researched this. No, it goes according to the time zone of the "station." So stations near time zone borders that send signals into other time zones aren't judged by the time in the receiver's time zone.


@markjaquith In that case, distribute the blog onto several hosts around the world and use DNS to switch stations as the time changes. Always be "broadcasting" from where it is 2200-0600.
