I have just been trying to post on another thread the word '***ist'.
This forum automatically blocks the word '***' (when in correct English the term should be '****').
Can the mods modify the censoring software to let such words through?

You can decipher the rest, it basically comes down to the Americans confusing buttocks with donkeys http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The worst thing is that links adresses are also censored!!!

You cant post a link if it has an *** somewhere in the adress.

A while back I tried to post a link to a site called <span class="ev_code_PINK">c o a s t w a t c h </span> and it was censored so that the link wouldn't work!!!

How hard would it be to write a routine like : if string = " *** " with um spaces around those letters IF they form part of other words? UBI needs better website managers IMO. (Not talking about the mods).
