Where are you pasting from? I know that sometimes pasting from Word or other sources keeps hidden tags on the copied text to paste. Causes me big headaches in the day job.

I typed the first paragraph, hit the preview button, selected and copied the text from the preview, then pasted it in the editor window. Same thing happens if I copy and paste from another post.


Here's another fun one. The following were typed as two paragraphs with the same text format, then I went to the beginning of paragraph 2 and hit the backspace to merge them into a single paragraph. The second paragraph magically becomes smaller. When I hit the preview button, the text grows to normal size, but gains the size tags that do nothing (probably because the size tag doesn't take percents).


Paragraph 1.[size=78%]Paragraph 2.[/size]

I would have thought the C word would have become slitch, but slot is also in the jargon.

Doubt they expected people to go looking to see what words were being filtered so we will take the examples as case in point and leave it there.
Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

It's funny that it also filters the words in your avatar info.

Wow, filtering based on parts of words is so last decade (or maybe the one before).

Or at least I thought so til I heard about some of the new opt out filters hitting UK ISPs!

The above is also editing occurrences in url links, which consequently breaks the link forcing it to open the parent board as opposed to the thread.

I would greatly appreciate being able to turn off the filter, if only to be able to have a more realistic PbP experience.

Edit: And also to prevent ridiculous things like this happening.

Like the above link.

A heartfelt thank you from me. Although it was a nice brain exercise to think up synonyms the filter would not pick up it was basically just an annoyance
