The Censoring Of Ass

I noticed that the word ass censors itself to *bottom*, which looking from an Englishman's point of view is weird because all *bottom* is is the British way of writing ass. It makes no real difference if it's censored or not :blink:

 

So, why not just bleep out **bottom** altogether?

My apology in the lack of knowing words around the other side of the world :blink:The word in topic discussion will now show up as *bottom*. I made it cute to "punish" those who wish to use in vain. HA HA HA

*bottom* 's up*testing**bottom*'s up*testing*so should '*bottom*' be altered to '*bottom*' as well ?serverph and I were cross posting. The a s s word is now permanently modified in the post I made. Select 'edit' and a s s appears as * bottom * (no spaces).


serverph

american english vulgarities have filtered to the masses more readily and more widespread, compared to its british english counterparts. BUT british english is much more "cultured"-sounding than american english, so it seems more acceptable. ;)

 

btw, BH, is censoring disabled for the staff forums? looks like *bottom* and *bottom* words are not substi-bleeped in here.

 

edit: a.s.s. censor seems to work, but is the censoring not forums-wide? looks like it filters on posts with that word AFTER censor was put in place. :blink: i can see those words in electriic ink's original post above. :wacko:

Check the original post to see how that was done.
The word censor doesn't see the correct sequence because of the bbcodes for colour which are in there.

a[ color =black]ss[/ color ] (spaces added)

Aah the joys of censor-bypassing :blink: I avoided the censoring in the post by using the "color" tags and got passed it in the title by editing the expletives into it after I posted it via the mod options :wacko:

thanks, jlhaslip. :blink: didn't bother to look into electriic ink's post code. dang, you have an *evil* mind, ink (nominating you to the *evil* mods group headed by SM! lolz! :wacko:).

Dooga

Kiss my *bottom*...Kiss my a?ss...:blink:Too bad I'm too pro for you... lolFeel free to edit this post and try to figure out what I did...

You wanna fight dooga? Lol, just kidding.I don't think the word *bottom* should be censord period. I've heard teachers, respectful grownups, everyone, use that word. It's not too offence, no matter which way you use it."You're an *bottom*".I'd probably respond to that by saying"Ok, and?"It's not that offencive.

*bottom* is now added to the bad word filter. It was not added after fixing the *bottom* filter.Only admins can bypass word filter without any tricks :blink:


jlhaslip

Kiss my *bottom*...Kiss my *bottom*Kiss my *bottom*...


Kubi

I think this is the most fun we've ever had using the badword filter. sheesh.

 

haslip, you can kiss my ass.

 

And ofcourse I'm just kidding.

Ok, I think we should stop spamming now.


Dooga

I personally think that admins shouldn't be able to bypass it, not because it's not fair or anything, but we all know we can accidentally slip a word or two once in a while! This would prevent Xisto from looking bad.And I don't think it should be changed to "*bottom*" it should just be changed to "%@$" or something, since you don't want to be adding hosting credits for swearing people, do you?*bottom**bottom**BLEEP**BLEEP**BLEEP**BLEEP*er*BLEEP**BLEEP*faceoh my *BLEEP*ing godomfgTesting lol


BuffaloHelp

<-- always performs double read :blink: Have not slipped bad words in, yet...


Kubi

Ya...What dooga said. You get double credits for cussing. If I say "a ss", I get say 3 credits, but if I said "Bottom" I get 6. Obviouly that's not accerate, but you get it?
