Aha so w t f turns into "what".. Lol so they can replace the words/phrases with whatever they like then.

I'll use that word here.. Granular 😛 so we can change the word "bleep" into a different pc version of that word. I'm not convinced that's any better tbh Ali. It could seriously change the meaning of something. Although I've not got a for instance right now, it's been a female dog of a day Smiley Wink << haha there u go! That just sounds silly.

I'll come back to this tomorrow when my brain isn't running on fumes!!

Oh biyatch should not be modified, I was just meaning the really offensive ones, and text speech when it comes to the reformatting.

If we could actually get a list of all censored words, we could have a more in-depth and accurate discussion rather than poking about blindly.

Come on giffgaff, tell us what you have banned so we can work some concrete proposals out. We need to know the extent of the insanity which we are working with.

does it really matter and the urgency for it think gg should spend more time elsewhere long gone it being a family friendly forum and it's not difficult if anyone wants to use vulgar language just to put space marks or dots between each letter will just over ride any swear words.....I read somewhere that gg had over protective words and a customer with surname ho went to newspapers because told her surname could be used as offensive language....why can't people just use report content button if you see a swear word simples

@t_will I'm sure I remember u saying ages ago that the swear filter could be discussed and words updated.!

I've just tried to say, "it's pi,ssing it down" but got bleeped. Which makes no sense as I can say piss but not pis,sing???

There are other words that I'm sure need discussing. It's like I can say bullshit but not the final four letters alone... So.. Any chance we could discuss this openly please? Maybe even turn off the filter for the discussion?

I'll just leave this here @gindygoo https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/General-Discussion/Swear-filter/td-p/19150236

Time for the people at giffgaff to correct a hate crime Smiley Wink
