I think the censorship on this site needs reviewing. Some of the words that are censored are a little silly, like the ing version of the word, "fit". I mean, really, ... I have never ever known that to be profane. :roll: Then there's the one that sounds like dam, the thing that blocks a ton of water, ... it's so light and cute and furry and harmless.

It's not like this is a site for young children to come and discuss Teletubbies, ... it's a site seemingly, prodominately used by adults or late teens.

I would at least offer a suggestion (as I already have done in another thread) that we each have the option of disabling the gung-ho censor. :twisted:

I Will certainly look into this, but i don't see it as a high priority as some of the other things that are going to be happening to the board.

An as per user filter wouldn't be viable anytime soon.

I'll review the list of words censored (which is an imported preset one) and remove less offensive words

Thanks for the feedback

I had a feeling it was an imported preset. Thanks for seeing to that so soon. Appreciate it. Now I can say the a case is fitting for the tablet, without feeling like I'm cursing like a pirate. xD
