Late at the orifice

A plaintive tweet from danah boyd:

In an academic essay, I ref a blog post w/ ‘asshole’ in the title. Publisher wants diff cite. Where is George Carlin when you need him?

I’ve asked that a few times myself.

Brian Reich, suspecting that it might be this post of his, volunteered:

was it my post? If yes, I will tell the publisher it’s totally cool to keep it in there (smile).

It certainly looks like something pertinent to danah’s ongoing research.

    Once again, I’m glad I’m an ecologist. We may use the word “anus” but I’ve never had a publisher give me crap over that. (Then again, I’m a plant ecologist, so I really don’t have occasion to use the word “anus” in my research much)
