Has AVRFreaks gotten a Nanny?

In the thread: https://www.avrfreaks.net/index.p...
I quote the referenced blogger who many times refers to folks on AVRFreaks who in his opinion are excessively supportive of AVR as dickheads. [Okay it accepts the plural lets see what it does with the singular: dickhead ]{Well for f**ks sake it doesn't get plurals so f**k it } (whoa it doesn't catch the big one! Why would it catch dickhead and not f**k. Hmmm... maybe it's looking for name calling, the f**ker )**thead Nanny works?>

I'll repeat what I said over there:

Challenge: since this catches the singular of dickheads - dickhead - but not the other grossly vulgar stuff I tried, lets have a contest in this thread where folks list every obscene thing they can think of to see if it gets caught. We can also speculate why dickhead gets censored but other equally nasty words don't.

Am I going to regret starting this thread? Probably.

Just as an aside, I remember that during the latter days of the Nixon Administration my favorite cussing was to growl 'expletive deleted', like "That expletive deleted ought to have his expletive deleted cut off and shoved up his expletive deleted." I was quite charming as a youth.

:twisted: This is right up my alley, in fact too much so. I think it best for me to pass..... well maybe just one.

***umic !!!

I do agree a "nanny" on a site like this would be ridiculous. Not to mention they are so easy to get around they are almost pointless to begin with. For instance d.i.c.k.h.e.a.d.

Does that count as going past one. I say no because it was for educational purposes, like a boob on national geographic.

Don't worry - we're not being censored... we're being censured!

See censor or censure.

Stupid dickhead forum software!
(handy hint - the 'Preview' button lets you test things! - and as far as I can see - d.i.c.k.h.e.a.d. is the only one...)

Okay who is this sheik of the desert who has kidnapped our Chuck? Or, OMG - Chuck were you one of those silent movie star impersonators I used to see roaming around the bars after midnight back in the day?

After taking a nappy I'm going to guess that this feature isn't due to any action on the part of the AVRFreaks staff, just some sort of an Easter Egg thing that you have to type in dickhead to find. Then again, maybe the Norwegians are particularly sensitive to this particular word. Hmmmm... that would be an interesting turn of events.

A couple of days ago when I finished my Matchbook Institute Course on Advanced Psychic Powers I (temporarily) changed my avatar. It signifies my newly acquired ability to give pithy programming advice when the posters don't bother to ask the question and/or describe the problem.

I'm out sucking down some overpriced corporate caffeine at the moment; when I get home I'll edit in my new persona in all its glory.

Joe,

I'm sorry but I don't see where you are going with this and there's words above that shouldn't be used here so I'm going to edit/lock this. PM if you have a strong objection.
