Have seen several posts this afternoon which have been edited. Is it really that out of hand. I have just end quoted on a post to say that a ship is just pA**ing Lisbon enroute to Bristol, only for it to be automatically edited (I then changed the post) making it far more prominent than it was originally. It really is not required under all circumstances. I know that you want to stop others using the wrong kind of language but this changing of words within words is not the way to go about it.

I agree Ive never seen such a poor use of filtering before altering normal texts

Given that it hasn't happened before I wondered if the admin mods were away and not able to keep a watchful eye on things so they had set it to maximum editing.

May be wrong but that's what I thought ... Edited by: AlyG

Come on guys don't get too upset. We need to allow the mods to explain why they have done it before getting all frustrated. A shed load of work goes into running these forums and they do it for free so I for one am not going to get too bent out of shape. I'm quite sure there is a legitimate reason

I Modded then Admined a car site and quite frankly you only need to filter offensive words.

Aly, you have to physically access the Admin panel to filter the words ;) Edited by: Dawn

Also moderated and been on various forums for many years, and frankly poor language when used in a descriptive term (like the weather etc) should be let fly, only need to start editing when its effing n jeffing in a rant etc. We are not Nanny state and most people that access a car forum such as this are of age to understand.
Oh and filter check - sC**Thorpe.......... that one always gets got

Gotta agree with you there Andy - I understand the need to make ££s but ads in the middle of a thread - yuck!

google add choices have been used by hackers as well - so if we get a raft of 'police lockdown viruses' we know where they have come from!

Its not something you can pussyfoot around, Dan is enT*Tled to try and get some revenue for the site. It could be worse you could be knobled with a membership fee. The mobile version of the site is currently add free. I haven't seen the swanky new design on the regular website yet.

Quite frankly id rather pay say £10 a year for Club Membership and be add free.
We had a protected sub forum for Club members who, amongst other things had access to discounts, got a sticker and anything else I blagged for free.
We also had a sub forum for Advertisers too, who paid for the space.
Just a thought

It had no problem with knob either which is a bit C**Ked up.
Edit: and there we go. I thought it might have had a problem with swanky too.
Good job we aren't a sumo forum a lot of their moves contain bad words like makush*ta. I wonder if it has a problem with analyse? Edited by: DietCokeBloke
