Yep. S.h.---.t combos of any sort.

s.h.i.n.t. - poopadities

s.h.u.n.t. - poopadities

s.h.u.t.o.u.t. - poopadities

s.h.a.f.t. - poopadities

s.h.o.u.t. - just poopadities, though, not shouted

Hopefully this will get fixed soon as it's making threads difficult to read.

Shut Shop shout

Makes reading the forum lots of fun. Even more so than talking about Batman's sidekick Robin, or people who breed dogs.

Well, I'm glad it's not just me going slowly mad. 

But it's really distracting and makes it hard to decipher posts.

I am grateful for the friends I have made on EHell and everything I have learned, but it is time I move on.

So this is why there's poopadities in every thread now LOL! I couldn't for the life of me figure out what was going on.

It even changed a thread title that wasn't new but had been around for a while--why I s.h.o.u.l.d.n.'.t meddle.  I didn't think the filter was retroactive?
"I don't mean to be rude", he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.  "Best to say nothing at all."

Maybe threads are refiltered when posted in?  The pdoodies hair was very confusing to me at first.  It took me a bit to realize sh ort was being caught.

Just checked the very first thread in 'Life in General'... 926 pages back, 2006. Pooadities is there.

Are they even going to be able to fix this? Or is it like a 'search and replace', once it's gone, there's no getting it back?

I don't know.  At least threads going forward can be fixed.

Or they can do a restore from last night's back-up (one would assume), meaning that all of todays posts would be lost. What a nightmare!

I manage a fairly large database, I live in fear of something like this happening. Search and replace functions have my extreme respect :P

I for one am leaving this site until that ridiculous poopadities is cleared up.  How utterly childish.
