Spam filters stuff Canadian Beaver

Venerable magazine to adopt less suggestive title

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Venerable Canadian publication The Beaver has been obliged to change its name after prudish spam filters objected to its suggestive title.

Publisher Deborah Morrison explained to AFP: “The Beaver was an impediment online. Several readers asked us to change the title because their spam filters at home or at work were blocking it. I’ve even had emails bounce back because I had inadvertently typed the term in the heading."

She added: “Nearly a century ago, it probably seemed the perfect name for a magazine about the fur trade and Canada’s northwest frontier. There was only one interpretation for the word then. But you’re likely to find a lot of [porn] sites now if you search for the title of our history magazine online.”

The 90-year-old title will, after the Feb/March issue, be known as Canada’s History.

Other Beavers of note which can be found online are the newspaper of the London School of Economics Students' Union, a Toronto restaurant offering a range of tongue-tingling delights and a film starring Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster. ®
