automatic editing in PM's??

Post by Beth » Sat Nov 21, 2009 10:57 pm

umm ok.. so I understand the whole need to keep the site clear of bad language and such, but I just sent someone a pm using the "B" word and after sending it and getting a response it changed it to "female dog" after laughing hysterically I had to wonder is this really necessary in our PRIVATE messages and is there any way to turn it off? I am sure the person I sent the message to was bewildered because it made no dang sense!

LOL... that's kinda funny... and I had no idea it did that... Here's my theory Beth....... even though it's a "private message" between you and someone else, that doesn't always mean it's "private"... maybe they could be away and leave it on their screen, or maybe you get their screen name incorrect and it goes to someone else accidently and maybe they are easily offended... Yes, I know this is a stretch, but If that type of language isn't permitted elsewhere on the site, it's just much easier to not allow it anywhere as opposed to telling some it's okay, and others it's not.

That make any sense?

Its something (to my knowledge) that is a site wide deal & can't be narrowed to the open forum............. Sorry

*sigh* well hopefully my explanation to the user was understood.

What happened to the stars in place of the letters? Because seriously female dog????

Here was the exact message: Yea quit female dog and finish the Jeep! lol

If they didn't know that pm's did that then they probably thought I had way to much to drink tonight!

Thats the only fun Dan now has and I originally had when creating cuss word alternates...like said above the forum isn't really "smart" enough to differentiate forum and PMs

you can always just use a * in place of a letter...which you could be funny and interesting if you think about it...

Or you can do this.......****, *****, *******, ****, ****, **********...... That way you can insert words depending on the particular mood that you are in! :bigthumb: :D
