Default Re: Word filter

I can think of a few dozen legitimate reasons for using the word "retarded", especially in the automotive area.... Please lets not turn this into a forum where the word screw is enough to get you banned... As is I can't post reviews on Newegg because they ban the word screw and screwed...

Seriously? That's crazy... nothing wrong with those words. Of course, it depends on context, I suppose. For instance, I would imagine you can't use 'screw' when talking about somebody's mother without getting banned.

But, like they say, the haters are gonna hate.

They had a dislike of me bypasing the word filter when talking about a case and it's PCI bracket shielding... I think it's about stupid that so many words are ending up on word filters.

So, when you are talking about a screw on the motherboard shorting something out, you'll get in trouble? Lame.
