OK, got a new one - reading a recent post about a couple getting married and came across the term p0ly. Written out like that. Looked it up on Google and unless they are polygamous (didn't sound that way from the thread) - ?????

What thread was it? Maybe the context can help us figure it out :)

Still not sure why it is spelled that way, or how it was relevant to the topic.

Yes, that means polygamous. If you read Celany's previous posts, that's an important topic for her. I don't know why it's written that way. Perhaps a typo or she thought it wouldn't get past the filters.

Or she wrote it so we wouldn't be getting interesting ads.  :)  Celany's a really nice poster, from what I've read of her posts, so she might be trying to help the forum.  Kind of in the same way that relationship gets filtered the way it does.

Right, it's to prevent unwanted ads.  Same reason people use "rel@tionship" and "p0rn".  The filters will allow those words, but they'll cause ads related to those topics to pop up.

No, it's for pOlyam0rous, not polygamous. They are different.
