Not quite.  Anything intended to hide the meaning of the message is 
banned.  Compression isn't banned, because the intention is to make more

"Past the wounds of childhood, past the fallen dreams and the broken families,
through the hurt and the loss and the agony only the night ever hears, is a
waiting soul.  Patient, permanent, abundant, it opens its infinite heart and
asks only one thing of you ... 'Remember who it is you really are.'"
