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!

Yes, there's a new filter in place. It obviously needs tweaking. I'll point cscgal at this thread.

I'm glad you got off your ass and fixed this.

Thank you Dani!

I didnt know people were abusing language and this had to be added...

Ah well.......

Good work Dani :)

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.

Well gotta must make things as easy for the staff as we can :)
