Is "ASP.NET" Profanity?

I was editing my Amazon.com profile and adding to my "interests" section. When I went to save my profile, Amazon.com barked at me and said that I could not have profanity in my interests section. Excuse me?

Notice this screen shot of the interests I had typed:

I wondered if they didn't like "politics" or "religion." As it turns out, the offending term was "ASP.NET." That's funny to me. Does Bill Gates know that Amazon has pejorated this term to profane status?
