Censoring some profanity

As you know if you've been around a while, one of the tasks of the moderators is to hide reviews with profanity.

We're lightening the load for them a little bit by automatically censoring some profanity.

You can see an example of this in action in the first comment on this review.

I love your choice of replacement words. Very colorful. I may start using them myself if that's okay

I noticed that the word "stupid" in one of my reviews was replaced with "inspiring." Aside from that being ridiculous, what sort of "intelligent" person would replace negative words on a review site with positive words? You are willfully misleading people when you do this.

Thank you Wolf- you took the words out of my mouth..

I had some postings deleted as well simply for implying words such as 'dangit'...


Its all a power trip... pretty pathetic and sad to say the least : )

Kiss my arse.. seriously..

They need to do some house cleaning here..some real nasty and power hungry moderators.. Not only do they censor you for even the slightest hint of anger when you give a requester a bad review? but words like dangit, darnit.. all trigger a nasty backlash. I had 4 moderators attack me.

I buffered all the posts and will be writing up a huge piece about the turkopticon jerks this weekend and also put it on my website..

I for one would like to hear honest opinions.. not watered down happy happy gibberish.. Wow-that really ticked me off.. Reminds me of grade school when once a week they would randomly give out crossing guard authority to various kids and they all would become mini dictators!

How proud you must be waking up each morning knowing you have weight on turkopticon : ) :)

Jackasses..
