Automated censoring

Is this new? i noticed it a couple of times now, where the words ****tail and ****er spaniel had asterisks replacing portions of the words. Makes sense if the word was just the part censored, but this seems silly to me....

in an effort to control some of the swearing/vulgarity and spam, some filters have been put into place. unfortunately, the filters aren't smart enough to decipher between the single 4 letter word that we want to block and other words that have the 4 letter word as part of it.

so, because of the autocensor Filters, we should change the spelling to
'cocquetails' and 'cocquer spaniel' and 'cocquepit'

We could have a lot of fun with creative spellings.

eh... some folks already unintentionally do so.

I whole-heartedly agree with you on that. but trust me when I say that the filters are a big help to the mod squad. I spend half my time on here editing people's posts for language (if its non stop or overly vulgar, infractions get handed out).

but there are downsides to it.. just like everything else in the world
