Twice in the last 24 hours I've been alerted that I have "inappropriate language" in my posts.  The offending words apparently were "f@rting" (a word in every elementary school kid's vocabulary) and "libid0" - on the Mismatched Libid0s board!  And YES, I had to type those words with @ and 0.  Someone, please do something.  This is ridiculous!  Can't even imagine that they're able to discuss anything on the Sex boards!

Hi..

Ack, the filter should definitely not be prohibiting those words! Thank you for letting me know, I've sent in an alert.

The filter didn't let the word "a-roused" go through...as in, I was posting about my son and my mom baking a birthday cake in MY kitchen so that the recipient's (my dad) suspicion wouldn't be a-roused.

Hi..

We're actually working on the filter this week. I've been able to post words like <close your eyes if you don't want to see them LOL> nipple, sex, and libido - words that had been reported in the past as disallowed. For me, aroused also went through. However, that doesn't mean we're not continuing to look into it! If you run into further words you cannot post, let us know the word and the browser you're using.

Thanks!
