  • Censored words problem???

    I don't know if this is a bug or not, or if there is an option that I've missed but I've added all the choice four letter words to the censored list, but when I did the testing I noticed that if you change the one letter to bold or italic or underline it the word will still appear.


    Lets take the four letter word that starts with "F", but due to the fact that I'll get kicked off here, I'll use the word "luck" instead of the main F word.

    This is how you can bypass it:

    If you type "Luck" it'll appear as **** (that's me putting the stars there)
    If you type Luck it'll apear as Luck
    If you type Luck it'll appear as Luck

    I did a preview on here to check on here to see if the F word did the same and it does, so I know I have not missed anything...

    Any help with this????

    Ps. I'm not trying to be rude in this post either!!

    The censor function requires an exact match of that substring so if it is altered in anyway, it can bypass it. It is a shortcoming but not a bug.

      Are Censored Words blocked in PMs as well?
