Death to All Modifiers/War on Articles (An Apology(The Redactinator)) (2008)

Death to All Modifiers/War on Articles (An Apology(The Redactinator)) is a set of scripts that works with a scanner, printer, shredder and PC to automatically scan and shred original text documents, convert the scans to text, search for and redact certain words or characters, print out a redacted copy of the original, and destroy all digital evidence of the original document. The scripts choose from a group of pre-defined redacting algorithms, including redacting all words beginning with capital letters and redacting all but the words 'and,' 'or,' 'that,' and 'the.' Occasionally words will be overlooked by the character-recognition software, letting some random words slip through unredacted.
