After seeing a filter on the Enid Blyton book deal, are there any oddities you have seen?

For instance F.a.n.n.y. is blocked, but Dick is allowed.

Both are use to describe genitals, and both are names, and i can't think of any other use for them. So either both should be blocked or both should be allowed.

**** pack?

Another flaw, in theory you should now be infracted because you have knowingly avoided the swear filter with a certain word. but you wont be.

so there are a few oddities around. i wouldnt worry about it. i do see your point though

I've just thought, in America it is a perfectly acceptable word, they call bumbags fannypacks

Doesn't douche mean shower in French? I guess it means someone is, what some may call, a wetter.

Seems there just Dick Fanboys.

Surely that came out wrong.

One tit allowed but not a pair of ****!

We tend to look at the context in which words would / could be used and whether they're more likely to be used as offensive terms or as harmless banter. If there are any you think should / shouldn't be in, let us know and we'll make some amendments

Additionally, the preview feature shows the swearword, yet when posted it disappeared. The only way to check if you're allowed to say something or not is post it.

Cock can't be filtered, it is a male hen. Just like bitch is a female dog, although watch that now get starred out.

I wish I could swear on this forum.

I would love to tell a member to f off.

Isn't "****" allowed on American TV, even making it onto an episode of the Simpsons?

I'm glad swearing is banned on here. Some forums are terrible with f's b's and c's thrown all over the place, even when they're not needed. Their is a place for swear words, like when you hit your thumb with a hammer, but not in every day speech.

NOTE TO MODS: I just reported Carley's post as a double posting, but when clicking other expecting a explanation box, none arrived.

Where a word can have a double meaning, and one of those meanings is perfectly acceptable in polite company, we tend not to filter it and rely on members following forum rules if they do choose to use the word out of context as a swear word or in a slang context that may be inappropriate. Unfortunately some words seem to have been added to the swear filter in error so I will ask for this womans name to be removed as well, thanks again.

The other swear word carly highlighted isn't being removed as the context that this is used in does not comply with forum rules, thanks

A douche is a device used to clean out the vagina as a contraceptive measure. Usually a sponge after intercourse. Americans use it as an insult.
