Redhead11']Wait. I'm confused. What did Mummy do?

Mummy was apparently the third or fourth reincarnation of a permanently banned zootop. That is my understanding of why he was banned.

We have tried that, and members will use other words, different spellings and such to get around the filter, plus it seems childish and only makes members post more.

 

Plus from what I remember the filter had a list of words it just automatically censored and didn't take context into account, so some words that have tame variations were getting censored which made the posts look worse than the statment's actual intent. Like if I had written, "I need to go to the doctor's later so he can prick my finger," it came out as "I need to go to the doctor's later so he can [CENSORED] my finger."  Whcih would really make people wonder about what kinda doctor I'm going tolaugh.gif

(the Gibbo jokes really don't work anymore when he's not here to call me a horse's arse for making 'em and threatening to head-butt me in the ghoulies)
