    Question what's with the ****???

    I have had this happen on a few of my posts and have seen it on others. Most times I don't read into it, but when I see it popping up on my posts, I wonder Am I being docked against a warning sticker or what? The one I notice often is a r s e. Even if it is contained in the word, like co**** or sp****. I understand the reasoning behind it, I just wonder if I'm getting in trouble and how many more *s I get before I get sent to the black hole

    Default The ***wer

    The answer to your question is that there is an automatic censorship function which I have programmed to "asterisk out" certain words. I had not remembered that arse was one of them, and when I saw this, I removed it from the list.

    Most of the others are fairly obvious:

    ****
    ****
    ******
    ****
    ******
    ********

    and so forth, but you get the idea

    Well, of course.

    Naturally, those would be out.

    But what about:

    **********
    ************
    ***********
    and
    ******-****** ****-*****?

    Elven is tolerated here, but don't try to write anything in the tongue of Mordor!
