thanks for the reminder, ive seen a lot of those lately
none in pics for me though
there was a new memer who started a thread and they said a lot of bad things because they had lost a game in ww...lke replacing the "f" n the f-word with "ph" and it wasnt blocked out. i think the mods should block that re-spelling definitely, especially if a younger kid has been paying attention in phonics

This is a great thread. There are kids on this forum, and they do not need to know some of the owrds I see members posting.
I usually tell the person I see doing this to stop. I suggest you do the same.
Even if they miss spell the word to let it 'get through the system' it is not allowed.
You are not allowed to give hints to what that word is.
For example you can't say what the word ryhmes with, or play a game of hangman to guess the word.
It is best for everyone to just talk with a nice clean language.

I've seen that too. At one point I almost put on an avvie that had a questionable word on it.

yeah, but I once used a word that gets thru the filters w/o changing, but I got reported by a member, so I don't use it anymore.

Thankfully I have not come across alot of posts where I have seen intentionally mispelled swears, but I have come across a number of the star/* swear replacement. And to be honest I have been and am surprise to see language like this at WI.

I realize that nothing is 100% pure. But I would think that at a site dedicated Webkinzworld, which is as wholesome of a site as could be, that people would automatically assume not to insuate/use foul language. It is a huge no no.

People should remember that swearing only illustrates bad taste and lack of judgement, the bottom line is these kinds of words are extremely offensive and no one has right using them at this kind of site. Especially when children are reading these posts. It is very poor rolemodeling.

If person feels the need to swear maybe they should write it and then before submitting it, change the swear into a more appropriate word, and then hit submit. Just a thoght...sometimes if you get it out than you feel better and are in a better position to either not submit or change it.

thanks for your 2 cents! you made some good points! but, it's usually not the user putting in the stars. The filter on automaticlly stars out at least part of some swears.

yes, but you weren't banned about it. I think it's fine unless the mods say something. IDK though.
