I really dislike that the profanity filter triggers but doesn't highlight the "offending" word(s).  It would be so much easier to deal with if it did.  Anyway, it triggered on "g o b b l e   d e  g o o k" (with hyphens between the words) this morning.  I know, I'm such a potty mouth!

Hi Sue,

Actually, there is a derogatory term in there which is what it most likely picked up on. I know the filter is on the list of items that need to be looked at.

Thanks!

And really, for the potty mouthed among us, the whole board debacle makes me think and say so many unladylike words that the profanity filter is almost ironic...
