Exactly what I was thinking. There are some non-bad words that aren't allowed that I don't get. Of course, it is all a matter of how you use it though. Like the words that describe goofy people basically. I use them for myself all the time and see nothing wrong with it, but if you use it for another person, it's bad. See what I mean?

I agree about the words not being allowed sometimes making no sense at all. With all of the money Ganz is making with Webkinz, they should have more sophisticated filters. For example, my niece adopted the cocker spaniel POTM this month and wanted to name it Butterscotch, which of course was not allowed (presumably because of the word ****?) If people can get away with saying a bad word with spaces or periods, there should be better filters which would be able to view the "offensive" word in the context of the complete word. We suggested that she try Budderscotch but she wanted it spelled the correct way and chose a totally different name that she wasn't as happy with. It's just my opinion but I wish they could fix this.:cs:

Good for you for standing up for yourself! People shouldn't abuse the system because there are big and little ears and eyes on this website. No one should ever insult someone else and if you want to do the "asterisk/space thing", do it with another adult in a PM or something. Thanks for caring.

I totally agree with you! It's a good idea to bring this to our attention, and to report anyone who does this. Rep to you!

Its simple. If you see a bad word (used in bad context), report it by red flagging the post. Its not something that needs to be discussed or worked out...if you see bad words, you know they dont belong, and they should be deleted.

Example:
Person1:
Hey there! How was your day?

Person2:
Ugh, it st.unk! (of course since that word is allowed, they would use another word for it, if you know what I mean)

In this conversation, Person2 put periods in between the letters so it wasn't starred out.

Example:

Person1:
Hey there! How was your day?

Person2:
Ugh, it s t u n k!

In this conversation, Person2 put spaces in between the letters so it wasn't starred out.

Now, I've had people call me very bad words which were not starred out because there were periods (.) in between the letters. Of course I reported it and the person was banned. But if that happens to you, don't be afraid to speak up to a Moderator or Administrator and they'll take care of it. And, if you're somebody who does do this, weather it's call somebody something or just say it, please don't. The whole point is to NOT do it because there are little kids on here, and it's just mean and hurtful. Thank you for reading, all comments appreciated.

Alyssa, I totally agree with you. We all have bad days and good days And we come here to feel better and relate to people who like the same things we do.

Using improper words, calling names and using certain words just is not right! There are children on this website and we who are not as young should set a good example!

rocks and most of the members do too!
