Automatic Censorship: "friend"

Sun Jul 06, 2003 11:47 am

I just discovered that if you type the following letters (without spaces between them):

*******

that it is instantly converted to the word: friend


How odd and so over-controlling dictatorial restricted use of the english language online.

friend

Thanks for reply. I understand your policy. The context of attempting to use that word in a post was:

I don't want to see tell-all documentaries that portray Elvis as an friend.



It's simply a strange cyber technology that enables

Automatic Offensive Word Conversion.

There's no need to use such words on the forum. There are other English words to use besides that. Concerning the word you wrote...those are the ones we keep out of here.
