If a word is in the bad_word_list file, it is ignored completely. This is
already user-configurable (since you can edit the file or empty it
completely). Similarly, if the word is shorter than the
minimum_word_length attribute it is also ignored completely. Both
behaviors are mentioned in the documentation.

Yes, you're right, the $LOGICAL_WORDS variable should reflect this.
