Modify the swear filter

Modify the swear filter

As you have undoubtably seen when a swear word is detected it is replaced with a **bleep**. Now I think this is unsightly and suggest that we replace the **bleep** with something much more pleasant, I propose twpo options, the first is to use a smiley emoticon instead i=of te offending word. Observe

 

Giffgaff is completely **bleep** and all you **bleep**ers are **bleep**

 

Becomes

 

Giffgaff is completely Smiley Happy and all you Smiley Happyers are Smiley Happy

 

Which is much nicer Smiley Happy

 

Another possibility is to replace the offending word with a much nicer word like buttercup or snowflake, as the swear filter is just a bunch of macros a different word can be allocated to each offending word.

 

Hope you like my idea

There was another idea similar to this which was to replace the swear word with 'giffgaff'.

 

So: Giffgaff is completely GiffGaff and all you GiffGaffers are GiffGaff.

 

I kudosed that idea too, I think either would be good to make the forum a more pleasant place to be.

Holy puppydog this is still getting kudos even after being marked as a duplicate? Smiley Happy

 

You have to love the idea of making the swear filter using contextual replacements instead of generic words Smiley Tongue

 

You **bleep** can all go and **bleep** yourselves.

 

You monkeys can all go and stroke yourselves.

 

I could do that all day Smiley Tongue
