Anybody notice a new, recently installed forum feature? It turns words like 'c l a s s' into class. Also, names like 'C h e l l i e' turn into Chellie.
We have some really nicely trimmed g r a s s in our club field... or should I say grass?
Try it out, use a word that isn't profane that contains profanity.

Good catch.
I saw the change to Checkie and wondered, but you solved the mystery.

They need a better swear filter than that. This one's dumb.

I want to see what happens.

Well, thats different.:red:

What! we can't say grass!

Glad I have a paved runway!;-)

I'll bet I can't talk about anybodies *****cat, or landing in the *****willows or bass fishing or playing a bass guitar or even listening to some classical music. Maybe I'd like to describe the pretty butterfly that was sitting on the tail of my plane, or the glass-smooth surface of the lake.
It's pretty pathetic, isn't it?

I think it's irritating. It's already getting on my nerves.

Hello and welcome to WF. I think you'll find that the grass is greener here- our top brass don't give out warning points. There's a thread in the off-topic forum about bass fishing, if you want to read that.

You know what they should do. Instead of replacing the text, they should just turn it to black text on black background. That'll make the forum look wicked cool like a Freedom of Information Act document!

(I had to use white on white because I can't do bg colors)

I took a class for flying a taildragger off a grass field today. I used my fiberglassed assassinator 2000 for the class. I crashed it into a *****willow, and now I'll have to shell out some cash to reassemble it.
