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

Status: Not For Us

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 Smiley Happy 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.

Really like this idea, seen it in use on other forums. Can be confusing for newcomers but very funny :-)

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

Love it. I just love it. Smiley Very Happy

haha nice idea. Though you might have to place asterisk's around the substitutions or else it could be confusing because I reckon people say "giffgaff" quite a bit on the forums.

So instead of:

"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."


Do this:


"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."


Or at least something to indicate the words had been changed.
