"Pakistan’s mobile operators were Sunday scrambling to block text messages containing any of over 1,600 'obscene' terms banned by the country’s telecoms authority ahead of a Monday deadline. The list, including words from 'quickie' to 'fairy' to 'Jesus Christ' and obtained by AFP, was distributed on November 14 with operators given seven days to comply, but has met with widespread derision and a threat of legal action."
