Use "GiffGaff" as the swear word filter instead of **bleep**

My first idea suggestion, as a result of a recommendation. It's a silly idea, but simple nonetheless - use the word "GiffGaff" to replace profanity ( The original post ).

 

"Oh GiffGaff! You GiffGaffing Giff, you totally Gaffed up my car the other day when you Giffing Giffed the side of it with your GiffGaffing piece of Gaff car."

 

I think you get the picture :smileyhappy: I don't know how the current system works, whether you have different words for each specific swear word, or whether you have one blanket replacement for all words.

 

Either way, take it as it is - a fun suggestion that I don't think carries much weight but might make certain posts a bit fun to read (asuming, that is, that some members like to swear a lot in this forum - which I'm sure they don't because everyone here is oh-so-nice).

Hi guys, We have decided to change this to 'Not for us' as we feel that changing swear words to 'giffgaff' will confuse members, as it won't be clear that it has changed. Thanks for the suggestion, and keep coming with the great ideas.

This would be more funny than the time one of the educators replaced every swear word from an angry customer with the word banana.



OMG, I have to see that...

 

EDIT: Couldn't find it ... :smileysad:


I'm not sure, but could it be this:

Or this:

Hope that helps,

Another similar idea has been duplicated to this one and wondered whether the replacement phase could be changeable see here http://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Submit-Great-giffgaff-Ideas/Modify-the-swear-filter/idc-p/2481205#M...

I think it should just turn the word in to stars rather than *bleep* like most other forums. E.g.

 

****

****ed

****ing

****head
