Oh I would love to do that.

'Fraid I can be a bit of a loose cannon sometimes, which can make other forum "staff" a bit anxious.

Even Mr Polystyrene Hat* himself had to make an urgent intervention to recovery the situation.
* Anthony @ Fonant who must be credited with having invented that brilliantly accurate name.

As spamming is no longer a big problem, maybe just take a look at the words and decide which words are actually profanities.There is a world of difference between people using proper terminology for sensitive areas and using vulgar colloquial expressions for those parts. Btw, there are a few proper swear words which slip through fairly regularly. Maybe one of the moderators may be able to suggest a couple of words to be added to the list?

Tee hee. I guess that was before my time but I do like that idea :lol:

Or, if some people find the word "unsuitable" for general forum use, allow it only in the "Men's Section" of the forum.

I've not seen any regularly, but I don't read every post. If I do see one, I more often than not discretely edit it out.

If you see any swearing, please click the alert button and one of us will react.

Hmm maybe it was stretching it a bit to say fairly regularly and yes I do report such incidents and I have noticed that they do get edited very quickly. Nevertheless it is true to say that some obvious swear words are not automatically removed yet some legitimate terms are. A bit of housekeeping could fix this to everyone's benefit.

Yes, but it's time that's required.
I was on earlier today for a few minutes over a cuppa, and now I'm back for maybe half an hour.

We rely on the anti-spam system queuing the spam up for us to weed out before it gets past the first base, but any approved poster can say anything he/she wants to straight into the public domain.

We must to rely on members to flag problems up because we can't read every single post every time a new one comes up.

Mick, I agree entirely. I wasn't suggesting that you moderators need to donate more of your free time. I was suggesting that the better the automatic system was at removing swear words, the less need there is for after the event moderation. I have messaged graham some suggestions for additions to the list. The part of the male anatomy I started this thread about is an anomaly because it is a correct term which is not normally used as a profanity so it needn't be on the list
