A forum I used to post at long ago had a filter that would replace the N-ending-with-A-word with 'nubian'.  Thus, an obsolete synonym for 'paltry' would be rendered as 'nubianrdly'.

The regular N-word would be replaced with 'I am a racist!' or 'I am an idiot!', depending whether it was in the text or the headline.

Not sure  what ever became of that site
