    So the word par****on is messed up again. Is it because the word "t-i-t-i" is censored, and if so why does it affect other words like that. It is doing it with other stuff like the URL blackh-a-t.com

    Surely it must be possible to block a word without it affecting other words using the letter combination ?

    Who spells titty as t-i-t-i anyway ?

    I can think of one way to keep spam down though, ban Kylzer ;) hahaha joking

    IMO that's a bit far fetched.

    should be easy enough to write a regex that would censor t-i-t-i but not par****on, then again people could then use bad words by doing something like .badword.

    Guys, we have a proxy spammer in the forums that you guys do not see, (the moderators take immediate action on him).

    He jumps in under several accounts, posts dozens of messages with links towards a website forum with t-i-t-i in it. It's a temporary measure and once he's done realizing posting these links will be censored whatever he tries .. we'll surely (in good time) uncensor it.

    What about the phone ones? Will they ever be unblocked?

    There's so much shyte we try to protect you guys from and you do not see.

    That phone censor is a spammer we get bi-daily for more than two years now, on a different proxy & account each time .. so no, I'm not gonna make those idiots life any easier.

    Here's an example of what is posted earlier today, and remember .. the moderators see this on a daily basis, there's a good reason for our censor:

    Really... just leave the issue be please. If we use the brackets then its exclusively that word that gets blocked, so any variants would be allowed.
    e.g. lets assume the word "tool" is blocked. So now we block tool like this {tool}. So the spammer comes back and does this, "come buy this new _tool_". Now we have to add {_tool_}.

    You see this escalates very quickly. Until there is a smart behaviour tracking technology built into the forums, we are left with IP blocks, word censorship, and manual deletion.

    Now i think all explanations have been given. If you have any valid suggestions that we havent already mentioned, then feel free to PM me. Subject closed.
