While pages calling for the death of various people, and openly espousing racism remain up, MZW has twice now been handed 12 hour posting bans over judicious use of the word "chigger", which refers to a blood sucking creature much akin to a Congressman, but much more irritating. Apparently this has set off all sorts of alarms in their censorship software. I wonder how many people who aren't well published authors with a large fan base get sucked up in this crap? Linked images are of course screenshots describing the offending posts and bans.

Well yes. The chamber on these probably isn't done very well, and likely wears with each shot fired. I think it would be better to print it without a chamber and manually cut it, it should make extraction a bit easier, as would printing it with a fluted chamber. Either way, unless you've got a proper extractor installed, forcing out a spent round, with it's expanded case will take some effort.
Great idea! Let's restrict speech to the same context as the 18th Century. The Founders could not have envisioned the internet, wireless communication, rotary offset printing, and anything else not involving writing by hand or setting lead type in a hand operated press.
