Add exclamation marks and other punctuation to swear word filter

[ Edited ]

Currently on the swear filter it allows you to swear by adding exclamation marks and other puncuation to the swear word.

An example of this was they said a swear word but added 3 exclamation marks.
This stops swearing but also saves time for the eds

I thought Scarlets would never need to swear as they are pure in thought, word and deed.    :smileywink:

Re: Add exclamation marks and other punctuation to swear word filter

I know that some posters think that punctuation is just something that happens to other people. It is, however, completely ridiculous to suggest removing it from the forum. Longer posts are largely unreadable without it.

If swearing leaks through the filter just report it - preferably without making a post to say you have done so!

I think you are misunderstanding what Diwalty is suggestiing

 

He is not saying remove all punctuation - just when searching for swear words punctuation immediately after the swear word should not allow it to pass through the filter.

Re: Add exclamation marks and other punctuation to swear word filter

And how do you think you are going to achieve that? Too much work to specifically filter all the possible combinations. Even if possible to filter combinations of letters and punctuation characters its not specific enough (perfectly reasonable to have k! or t. or r, - to screen them out would have a far greater impact on the forum than the relatively low level (and usually quickly removed) of swearing.
