Angry Absolutely do NOT? Well, I've seen that a lot of people do.... :(

I was reading through the forum rules today. I like to do that now and then to make sure I'm a law-abiding citizen of WI, () and I visited once again a rule in the 'Absolutely do NOT' section of the forum rules.

And it really made me think about how much this rule was broken. Most people pass this by without another glance, but I've been doing my best to report the posts that involve this. The rule I'm talking about is this;

Originally Posted by forum rules, in the 'absolutely do NOT' category
* Spacing out or otherwise altering words to get past the site's censor.
How many times have you seem someone do something along the lines of these with a banned word? (using the word giggles as an example)

g.iggles
g i g g l e s
g*iggles

First of all, WI censors out a lot of words, and we know this. Some of the words most of us don't have a problem with. All the words I've seen people do this to aren't actual 'bad' words to most people, but remember they're banned for a reason.

And remember: this rule was in the 'Absolutely do NOT' section. So I'd think twice about what you type.

~~~~~~~

So, if you're sitting there thinking, 'well, it's not such a huge deal, is it?' Well, check out this quote right from the rules.

If you ignore any of the ABSOLUTELY NOT rules, you'll be moderated in one of the following ways:

* Temporary or Full access ban.
* Temporary posting ban.
So there you have it. It would not be fun to be banned, to say the least.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I enjoy WI because of the incredible safety, and the fact I can log on without worrying what my little sister will see on the screen over my shoulder. Like I said, I was amazed by how many examples of this rule being broken I found once I started looking--so help make WI a better place by reporting things such as this.

Thanks for bringing this up. I stopped doing this after one of my posts got deleted because of it. I guess we all need some Frebreeze once in a while to freshen our "mind room".

Report the post, and let a mod/admin take care of it. They'll learn, eventually.
That's all.

I haven't seen this as much here as I do on webkinz, but I believe that lots of people do it! I didn't even know there were censors!

Awesome thread! Thanks for reminding everybody. I've been seeing a lot of this too.
