@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?

It's against the T&Cs to try and work around the swear filter. Smiley Surprised

**bleep** off @gindygoo Smiley WinkSmiley Happy

Seriously though, there are quite a few that need removing from the filter. It's madness not to be able to say some of the words that are classed as 'swear words' when they're clearly not.

@pd789 Pahahahahaaa™ u little bugger!

You're right, it's a really weird set of swear words that iirc are on an American filter anyway... There's been some serious discussions scuppered because you couldn't say the word the discussion was about!

@gregg_b @alex_w I'm not sure who's bag this would be educator-wise but it's something I think needs discussing and then actioning. It's not even difficult to put into place as you guys have the ability to add/remove words from the list, so, can we have that discussion please?

perhaps you are right but is there any real need for that kind of language?

@gindygoo

I agree. We definitely need a reassessment of the words on it. It's utter ludacracy that some words can't be typed but alterations of the word can.  Also other words that shouldn't be swear words are on there.

 

Get on ed onto this however they are incredibly busy as they have lost a few eds and are covering multiple shifts.

Good shout @gindygoo 

There are some words which are just plainly obvoius that they are or are not swear words so why aren't or are they in there. @gregg_b @t_will Lets get a discussion on this as soon as one of you has time. It's about time.
