Of course I will comply but that seems odd.
Before the fix, we said that c@cktail is ok because there was a glitch with the filter set up. But now cocktail is ok with the fix.

I would think that "Madi$on Wisconsin" would be ok for the same reason that c@cktail was ok. Blocking the particular use is not the intent of the particular word (or string of characters) being filtered.

Re: To everyone on TAM - new policy

Moderating's a hard enough job already. So I can't imagine why on earth you'd want to add to the workload by ferreting out everyday salty words adults ought to be able to handle, unless they are used in an abusive manner. Anyone who wants to avoid certain words can install a browser extension that does the same thing without affecting what others read or say.

"Tone" is determined by many things other than "those" words, and a string of asterisks does nothing to mask it. If I call someone a stupid ****ing son of a *****, does the filter truly mitigate my rudeness? I've always thought the algorithm should be turned off entirely and statements judged on their import, and I considered the tacit tolerance of common workarounds a welcome relief. I think this new decision detracts from the site, but do as ye will.

Amazon doesn't care about the **** in the url, just the product number. For other sites a censored url will not work, in that case use tinyurl.

Same here. Going to be a few asterisks for me I guess.

I don't like people have to try to figure out what the asterisks say, so I've just had to think a little more to find a way to say what I want.

Pardon the newb for butting in but I think they mean something like this type the letter c the number zero the letter c the letter k without the verbage doing this is trying to get around or self filtering. I hope I'm not out of line.

Re: To everyone on TAM - new policy

But this is great, keeping the dialog at the level of the Nickelodeon channel. Super duper.

Can we use Mormon swears. Like "goshdangit" and "frick" ?
