WebCollage doesn't have any content. It gets it from this thing called "the
Internet". If you look at its documentation, it even tells you that. What's
more, it's there but not enabled by default.

I'm not sure what particular word has offended you in Barcode, but it's
basically picking from a random dictionary. And, if you look at the source
RPM, you'll find a patch which removes several words referring to parts of
the human body some people find embarrassing. I looked at the remaining
list, and am perplexed as to what you are offended by. "Gerbils", perhaps?
