    I just tried to write a post in which I used the word "mis-hit" but i joined it together, and when I posted the SH*T was censorsed out with stars, like this mi****.

    Was amazed by this, do you (Kwun) have censorship over certain words when they appear together in the form of swear words.

    haha I tried editing it, but it did it again (i had to write mis hit in the end). Its really clever! :D :D

    Well, that sounds like a bug to me.
    Strings detection should be used as exact words only. It seems to me that now, it is detecting by buffer-1bit only. So, when everytime the systems sees:

    example: 123456"SH_T"7890, it will mask the inner 4 letters
    (Note: SH_T="the word")
    The system is detecting when it sees SH_T in a row.

    However, that' not exactly right because we have words like:
    example mish_t, which means mis-hit.

    So, the string dectection has a bug here, it should be detecting:
    " sh_t " (have space character before and after the word, 6 characters total.)

    rather than just detecting the 4 letters only.:)

    that is intentional since a lot of people might type something like SHIIT!!! or FUUCK!! to circumvent it. Plus, I usuall spell swear words with double vowels anyway..... if it ain't worth double-vowels, then it ain't worth swearing. ;)
