No doubt that was also the time when people who lived in or had an interest in esSEX, sCUNThorpe and PENIStone had issues using t'internet too.

Probably, I don't recall the whole list but someone did spend morning going through words like your examples and making a list showing how daft it was. Then I was in Argos before Christmas buying a present for a younger relative and I came across the same issue. I'd just heard someone next to me talking about going to Scunthorpe for the festive period and decided to use that as the order code. Now Argos have a prude filter and it was rejected along with a few more naughty words I tried. This was so engrossing I almost forgot why I'd gone there and it was only when I remembered they only had two in stock that I stopped mucking about and did things properly.
