    I agree with darththunderbird, but that should be done with all of the words on that list, to prevent words that are perfectly acceptable from being censored.

    Hahaha, she means ****pit. I can say it cause the filter doesn't apply to mods.

    Okay, question: why shouldn't it apply to the mods? Mods aren't allowed to be profane either, and while I doubt any of them would abuse it, why take the risk? I just don't see any real reason why the filter shouldn't apply to everyone :)

    Does This have anything to do with the auto-censor?

    Ok in one of my post I posted it auto-censored like every word. Know here is the odd thing not one of the words was a bad word. So what gives here?

    It appears that the censor is having some problems

    will posts revert to their intended state after this glitch is fixed? or will all those poor souls working on huge posts in the Senate have to start over? :p

    From zerosleep

    The update was rolled back while I look into the profanity filter problems.

    That's good so it's fixed for know and we don't have to worry about the auto-censor kicking in? Or will it keep happening?

    I was wondering why, when I edited a post, it had four asteriks before each letter, space, or symbol... Does it only happen if we edit posts?

    Why the hell does the JC need a profanity filter anyways? Isn't it an optional feature? We've managed just fine without anything of the sort for the last 6/7 years.

    Jurist: Thanks for the update, glad to hear zerosleep has it under control :)

    Myri: Nope, it was happening to me even if I didn't edit a post :)

    Myri_Antilles, i was having the opposite happen: my initial posts would be "censored" - but my edits would not - they would appear without asterisks.

    The profanity filter works everytime you hit edit or submit. If you took an old post with profanity and hit edit, it'd star things out.

    This autophilter seems to be the first step toward M.O.D.B.O.T.

    We really should stop complaing about the fact everytime it breaks down it tries to kill people and rejoice in the future unfolding before our very eyes!

    Anyways.

    Has it been turned off completely now?

    Looks like it to me... I just made a test post with a sock and everything went through. :(

    It's caused some havoc in my Local FF. Sveral posts are full of stars (they didn't have any profanity in them)

    does anybody know why IGN always orders unnecessary useless stuff,

    Actually, this is something that is really needed over at the IGN forums. You'd be surprised at the number of people over there that are not able to show some forms of self restraint.
