Forum's word censoring function needs tweaking

Postby H2B2 » 9:33pm, Thu 23 Sep, 2010

The forum's word censoring function apparently needs some tweaking. The following words are currently included in the filter and should be whitelisted (IMO):
investigate In_vestigate
investigated in_vestigated
investigation in_vestigation
investigar in_vestigar
investigue in_vestigue
investigando in_vestigando
updating up_dat_ing
presumably pr_esum_a_bly
Crowdofone Crowdo_fo_ne
MacNeill Mac_Neill

http://yourdomain.com ht_tp://yourdomain.com - Whitelisting this one is debatable: while it is commonly used on the forum, it is in fact a registered domain. Forum users should use example.com instead, since this is a reserved domain that may be used for testing and documentation purposes.

If you find other words that should be whitelisted, please post them here, and one of the moderators will contact the forum administrators to tweak the filter.

Amended. However, just a word of warning, do expect to see more spam links getting through now as invest, soma and acne are popular spam words and links. :?

Thanks! Yes, I'm afraid you are right, and I expect we'll also get more "dating" spam coming through. I hope forum users will step up reporting spam posts, so we'll be able to manage the increasing spam flux and keep writing words like "updating". If not, try "upgrading" instead of "updating". :wink:
