    I discovered something!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Rudi on 27-Sep-05 16:48. Here it is happening again. The word "@#$!%" turns into symbols. )</P>Sorry for the subject, but recently...VERY recently I typed out "this is a @#$!%" and the "@#$!%" part automatically turned to @#$%. Is this something new, or was it always the case???
    Regards,
    Rudi

    This has always been the case. The Lounge software has a "bad words filter", anything caught by it is turned into @#$!%.

    I guess I did.

    PS: I NEVER say naughty words. I didn't realise this is such a naughty word. It isn't even 4 characters long????

    Re: I discovered something!

    Rudi,

    I ran into this problem with this exact same word - B.....GER - quite sometime ago and found out it was BAD. That is also when I found out the Lounge does censor our word usage so we don't slip up!! BTW, I don't intentionally use bad words either so you can imagine how embarrassed I was! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    Re: I discovered something!

    The B word can be construed as a VERY bad word but like any swear word it depends on the context of how it is said or written in a sentence. I know Lex is quite a sensitive chap snd does get upset with some words probably best to use <!t>[censored]<!/t> tag from now on...Loungers can read between the lines and make it as rude or nice as they want

    Re: I discovered something!

    I'm quite sensitive when it comes to swear words... I honestly didn't know that the B word was a swear word!!??

    Suggestion:
    Can one of the moderators post a list of all the swear words that cannot be used in the lounge???
    How about it!!
    (Then I know where I and Lex stand)

    bugg3r is a bad word if you've read ender's game or starship troopers... or probably any other alien-including book! <img src=/S/aliengrin.gif border=0 alt=aliengrin width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/wartgun.gif border=0 alt=wartgun width=73 height=24>

    I have it on good authority that Lex never attended latin classes, so I have a couple of put downs in latin if you prefer <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    1) vescere bracis meis <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">eat my shorts</span hide>

    2) noli me vocare, ego te vocabo <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Don't call us, we'll call you</span hide> <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>
