Auto-Censor?
« on: May 20, 2009, 03:28:21 PM »
I tried to make a message with the word "a s s" and it was automatically edited to be "weed puller".

Is big brother automatically censoring posts?

Regards,

CB

Yes, there is an automatic profanity filter on the forum.

Does that explain why I can't see St. Johns Inn anymore?

Does it choose a random replacement word?

I think it is fairly constant.

For example, each time I want to stick my dim bulb in your weed puller...it comes out the same every time.  LOL

I typed it out above and didn't try to use the curse words btw.

That shouldn't have anything to do with what forums are viewable.  John's Inn is right where it's always been, at the very bottom of the list.

I noted you cannot spell D-i-c-k, even when using it as a personal name...it substitutes "richard" with a lower case 'r'.

See d-i-c-k run, see Jane attempt to warn d-i-c-k of the approaching car but he does not recognize "richard" and steps into the path of the speeding minivan.  See Jane cry... ;D

I was thinking more like profanity filter mad libs, but the seem to be more constant in the substitutions.

if there is a way to edit this filter, it SERIOUSLY needs to be done... replacing a-s-s-e-s with "paychecks" turned an otherwise innocent comment into one that implied I was accusing a woman of being a harlot. Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease.
