Feel free to type around the filter, but for now, its staying there. Nothing against you guys at all...its the bots.
The purpose of nonsense words in place of stars is because with stars, one can still read what the word was supposed to be. With nonsense instead of stars, the mesage, at the very least, will be nonsense in itself. If we just replaced it with stars, that would sorta defeat the whole purpose of trying to thwart these bots and trolls (especially the trolls) in any way we can. :/
s-e-x was the only "mainstream" word filtered; the other ones are words our members shouldn't be posting anyways. >.>
Sorry for any trouble this causes, but honestly, it only takes you a few seconds to change that to "gender." :/ I think a few extra minutes of editing your posts is a small price to pay; you guys just have to bare with us until we figure out how to stop all this crap from invading WW. You guys don't see this, but we are deleting a whole bunch of bots and trolls every...single...day. >.<
PS: When the surge of p-o-r-n bots goes down, I'll remove s-e-x from the filter...but until then, its one of the most widely used words by the p-o-r-n bots and is in practically every title.
