This is a good bot idea, but the word list needs to be vetted. Some of these words were historically ableist, but aren't considered to be ableist anymore. Some others could be considered ableist when thought about in a certain way (like the word stupid), but aren't generally considered to be ableist, according to popular opinion among disabled people. I think we should limit the list to the actual slurs.
