View Full Version : Prohibited Terms?

07-02-2007, 07:15 PM
I've noticed that a number of terms seem to be censored here on the DIS. These include "touring plans" (as one word), "*******", and "quick silver" (again, as one word).

I was wondering if there was a reason behind these and others, and where one could find a list of the "bad words" of the DIS. I can understand censoring profanity, but I guess I don't understand this.

I'm a moderator on another (non-Disney) forum, so I understand the difficulties in running a forum, but I have yet to understand some of the terms missing.

Many of the words that are censored are business names that have spammed us or violated our TOS (usually by advertising here repeatedly.)

No, there's no handy list you can refer to to find the censored words.

It's imporatant to know that any words that are censored are done purposely by the ownership/management of this forum, and circumventing the filter with creative spelling (including extra spaces) is not permitted. :)
