censored pm's

Postby d_baker » Thu Jan 19, 2012 8:29 pm

Not sure in what forum topic to put this under, so this is where it's at.

Anyway, I had an interesting thing happen tonight. I sent a pm, with a few non-nazarene cuss words in it. Not directed to the recipient mind you, just a few f-bombs and even s**t was in there. When the sent pm view window thing came up, I noticed the words were like this, f**k and s**t. That's in not how I spell those words.
What gives? It's a pm, not in the forum.
I also posted in the "What are you reading?" thread. I'm reading s**t My Dad Says. SO that is what I wrote. In the pop up window, it's spelled, S--T, but once in the forum, it's spelled out.

Is 14ers being censored? I'm clueless, as most of you probably figured out by now.

The forum has one set of word censoring and because it's turned on for the public forum threads, it also applies to PMs. I know, it's stupid.

Oh. In the forum I can understand. I was surprised to see the pm get censored though. No big deal really.
But I can drop the f-bomb if I'm starting out a sentence with it, or maybe because it's capitalized, but in the middle of a sentence, or because it's a small cap, it gets censored. Knowing that gives me great satisfaction. It's the simple things in life kids.....

Satisfaction is now lost.
I guess I shouldn't have let that little ditty out of the bag! :-#

No matter. Bill, maybe this should go to off route so it doesn't offend anyone? Or delete, I don't care.

Swearing has its place. It's been proven through studies that swearing can have a pain relief effect in some cases.

Face it, a few choice words when you crush your finger with a hammer is a lot more effective than saying "DARN IT, THAT SMARTS!".

lol
I thought you'd find that funny! The reason I put a few words into the "censor" list inside the phpBB software is because we have plenty of younger people using the site. I agree it's goofy that the software applies the changes to PMs, but I can't control that without making custom changes to the forum guts.

No need to delete this thread but I will back out my various combinations of CAPITAL lettered entries. I'm amazed they made the word-censoring function case-sensitive.

Gosh - whatever happened to "Shoot!" "Dag Nab-it!" or "Aw Phooey!" ... ?
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content - Paul the Apostle.
Like it or not, I am a slow driver. Putt ... putt ... putt ...
Good day.
