Has there been some sort of new word filter put in place that automatically stars out profanity? I've been noticing a lot of *s out there in ordinary words that happen to contain the letters of the donkey word:

Test:

  • P***word
  • ***embly
  • P a s s w o r d
  • A s s e m b l y

See? I think this is a little bit too much, as the words I posted were ordinary words that are not bad in any way. Please fix this as soon as possible!

Thanks, Dude. There was actually a 100+ post thread in the moderator's forum about how to handle the situation and take the strain off of the moderation team.
