Forum Word Filter is working
« on: December 25, 2006, 08:35:03 PM »
One of the advantages of switching forum software is that this forum's word filter does work whereas the previous forum's did not.

As well as putting the usual vulgarities in the filter, there are also words that appear to generate certain types of ad banners from Google Adsense that are inappropriate.  Some of them have been *very* inappropriate and to avoid getting surprised any further with these unwelcome banner ads certain words have been blocked. 

Please read the forum rules regarding the word filter.

Can I ask what "Sweet Monkey Fritters!" is replacing?  I see it now and then, but I can't figure out if it's something various posters are saying, or if the forum filters are putting it in place of something else.  I'm dying to know!

Wait, I thought May I please ask what is happening here?'s replacement was "May I please ask what is happening here?".  When did it change?  I liked that replacement so much that I've started using it in real life.

LOL, I didn't even notice that!!!  ;D ;D

Alright, for the record, the offending 3 word abbreviation when typed normally (no spaces, no hyphens) leads to: "Sweet monkey fritters!".  When typed with a single hyphen separating each letter you get: "May I please ask what is happening here?".

Well, we know that the word g.ay typed normally comes out gay.

But why does l3sbian come out lesbian?

(Let's see what THAT does!)

The whole "bre*eders" = irresponsible parents of the human variety thing gets a little annoying when we're talking about pets.

Yeah but given how hard it is to swallow when someone uses the word b*reeders to refer to irresponsible parents, I'm perfectly happy to put an asterisk in the word when referring to an actual b*reeder of animals.

Errr . . . . that's not a no-no is it? I know that trying to get around the word filter is *really* frowned on. But if I'm doing the run-arond to actually refer to a dog b*reeder is it still a no-no?

All I know is that ever since I've seen "Sweet Monkey Fritters" used, I have been using it. I didn't realize that it was the filter kicking in until someone else mentioned it. I just think that Sweet Monkey Fritters is fun to say, and much safer to use in fromt of kids, especially since the youngest two are tape recorders/instant playback machines.

LOL! I thought "Sweet Monkey Fritters" was just an Ehell saying, like "a box of Flaming Hell Frogs."
