I said "spaz" in a business meeting once and our RVP, a Brit, looked at me like I'd just called the client's mom a whore. I asked what the big deal was, and apparently "spaz" is a serious, serious word in the UK. The client laughed and goes, "well you guys say kitten, so, drymount it!" And then we made some money.

Calling someone a spastic as a derogatory term has a stronger impact over there as it's used more often. Spastic clinics are quite common so the term has a more tangible visualization.

They did start including it in the swear filter.
