Noticing something

#1 Unread post by NorthernPete »

A lot of random words replaced with the word “winking”

Is that just me, or something else? (I see it in the title of different spokes latest post on cold weather driving) also seen it a few other places.

Let me check the word filters, I bet that is the case.

Yup, that is what it was. I have fixed it up now.

As we go forward with technology many of the advertising companies will not advertise on pages with censored words, an example is using the "F" word in a post and that whole thread and post gets red flagged. So "winking" was my attempt at replacing that censored word with another... unfortunately the word to be replaced I put in as f* ing and the * is a Wildcard (meaning any word that started with f and ended in ing!). argh.

I removed it though. So thank you for pointing it out. Substituting words works but sometimes not the way intended.

LOL. Fixed! :)

I bet you couldn't guess what C word I was blocking for stick? :) (ok, don't put it here, just say it in your head and laugh)
