simple one function stopwords remover

Sample Input:
Let(
text = "The Good and Book of Company";

Filter_Stopwords ( text )

Filter_Stopwords ( lower(text) )

Sample Output:

Description:

Removes stopwords [a very long list provided via a uni] from text. Defaults to only removing lower case stopwords, so fairly simple.
