i've found another good use for the spam-filter circumventing word blocks like:

piece vertebral corinth
accelerate discriminable writeup alexandra plumage irredentist backboard
degenerate cushion rudiment authenticate lifelike seagull scrounge
thallium liquor calumet stalactite volstead pageant earring fujitsu moist
richmond classroom partial comparator endpoint zombie rick complaint
dully placebo medicinal croak cud aphasic rook steward covert doubtful
shopkeep value bandpass culinary ectopic winslow keyhole augusta dew
walters chat alginate ariadne crystallite earthmover rapid plankton
puffin fricative adventitious alter

i imagine there are few of us who know what *all* the words in this block mean.

so pick one or two that you don't know, and look them up!

spam word of the day:

irredentist (n): one who adheres to the doctrine that irredenta should be controlled by the country to which they are ethnically or historically related.

irredenta (n, pl.): regions controlled politically by one country but related ethnically or historically to another.

paraphrased from Princeton's WordNet 2.0
