For a product-key task, recently, I omitted vowels from the set of 
allowed characters to avoid bad words.  The set also had digits.  In 
that approach you still might have things show up that look bad, but in 
my tests that didn't seem to be happening.

Another approach would be to omit all words, bad or not, by using some 
sort of spell checker library includes bad words.

I'm with you about maintaining the bad word list.  I once managed a 
discussion email list and had to set up my bad word filters.  Blach!  
It's worse than searching through the spam bucket for missed mail.  
Since I'm naive, there are probably lots of words I don't know and I'm 
upset about the ones I do know.
