I just noticed something when I tried to type the word "gobbedlygooook" (mispelled here on purpose). When I previewed my post, it read "gobbedly****." So rather than misspell the word, I removed it. For those of you who don't get it, the last four letters of that word spell a deplorable racial slur used mostly by GIs during the Vietnam war to describe certain Asians. Now I understand the reasoning behind this kind of censorship and agree with it to some extent, but at least fix the darn program so that it censors this word (and perhaps others?) only when the letters are by themselves and not connected to other letters to form a completley different, and nonoffensive, word!
