Word Censoring List

Post by yongkian »

Em...I wonder is it possible that someone can come out with Common Word Censoring List... Or should phpBB have one?

Umm... I thought most admins came to the realization that word censor lists don't really work. They actualy tend to cause more problems than they fix. Why do you actually need one?

Do you plan to also stop people from insterting dots or typos for certain CENSORED words too?

That list is an attempt to make posted spam links not show up, not top naughty words from being used. It's a long list that doesn't attack the real problem, which is the posting by bots.

It's really not that hard to come up with a basic list of words that you don't want to be used and put them on the list. As you find other things you consider offensive, add them. A "bad" word for one person may be one commonly used by another, so making a default list that fits everyone isn't really possible.

Amusing list! Go through it carefully and remove the stuff you don't want. schaffer? Like David Letterman's band leader? schmuck (but not the alternate spelling of shmuck)? Yiddish for a stupid person. Can't have that.

I did see a bunch of stuff that I have no idea what it means, and would be careful about stuff with wildcards and words with common, non-offensive meanings (like screw).

We don't provide pre-populated lists because there will always be disagreement over what should be on them - most I've seen, including those linked here are generally over the top

Quite the faux-pas, IIRC :wink:
