Yes, but so what? Actually, this is big deal.
Recently, Chinese netizens claimed that one Chinese-language version of eMule actually has a table of "filtered keywords" as well as a table of filtered IP addresses. For the record, the table of "filtered keywords" is listed below. Even if you cannot read Chinese, you can read the English-language terms and be awed the intermixing of the sacred, the profane and the political (together with all possible phonetic variations). If you can read Chinese and you know enough about mainland China, you will probably keel over from laughter -- this is the best entertainment in town (plus the fact that the list is being sent around as an image (instead of text) and therefore cannot be filtered!). It is also likely that you won't understand all the terms (and I certainly did not understand many of the keywords (e.g. What is the problem with 'paper'? What is 'making' banned but 'ML' is alright (sorry ... ml is the Chinese Internet term for 'making love' and not 'Marxist-Leninist' as some people might expect)), so this is the chance to search for them and increase your knowledge of what really matters in China nowadays).
