FiCus comments:

I see possible impacts on artistic expression. Like a net
where messages with "the 7 words" are scrubbed (Prodigy?)
Even subterfuge, cant, dialect, etc., will eventually give
way to the daemons with joyous LexEngines parsing our
messages faster than we can type. 'Bout that time we'll be
treated to "quantification" of emotional response as
expressed through body "language", utterance and hormone
levels scanned by roadside MRI, flyby eeg, the reflectance
FTIR...the results fed to virtual adjudicatory devices
peering at your irises and ZAP...[or perhaps BLONG!]
