Um, I have a question as to why the posts are now automatically editted to exclude explitives by substituting some ***'s. I don't get it, was there some kind of problem with the former system?

That always was the system, filtering banned words into ***...
No way! I know that I've writen some pretty colourful expressions on this forum in the past. Maybe you've changed the system to filter more words?

Nope, from the moment we installed vBulletin things have been exactly how they are now. Mind you the list of banned word is pretty short so..

Way back in the days the list was longer and the forum worked in a different way, replacing one word with another. So for some reason I put "hell" on the list, resulting in "heaven-o".. :D

Though it should be said Ikonboard was pretty buggy compared to vBulletin, this stuff is much more stable. :strong::cool:

Right, um, I haven't the foggiest what you are talking about, but I guess my point was that the rules go a bit like this:

"2. Foul language
You are not permitted to use foul language for shock value, or to attack a fellow poster, or in such a way that it is totally out of context and unnecessary. Occasional outbursts will not be acted upon, you will not be penalized for the occasional "damn" or "hell". Should continuous use exist, however, action will be taken accordingly. "

So why can't I occasionally be colourful?

Those were the days when you never knew what would appear after typing an expletive. :nostlagia:
