Did I miss the memo informing everyone that "nymphomaniac" and "penis" are now considered profanity? Because unless "Moses" and "the" are the culprits, I can't find one reasonable explanation for my attempted posting to trigger the mother f-ing profanity filter on this board. If this site was a person, I would tell her she needs to get laid. Can't wait to see if this actually posts, lmao.

  Please send your complaint to the CM.  This is an ongoing problem.  Whoever is responsible needs to be reassigned or fired.

I swear, this "nanny state" of how life is in 2012, almost 2013, makes me think that the dark ages were far more enlightened than times are now. I get so tired of being treated like I'm 8 yrs old when I'm darn near 53.  If they're going to be this wound tight about certain words pertaining to sex, then why do they even have a board discussion things of a sexual nature to begin with? That's just stupid.

Ken, you are absolutely right.  And if this board is suffering I imagine some of the racier boards are all but gone.

If I shake my head anymore at "libid0" triggering the profanity filter on the Mismatched Libid0s board, it's going to start spinning around like that chick from the exorcist. Somebody please call a priest.
