The new filter

IMO you may want to revisit the list of forbidden words.

t w i n k?
f a i r y? (As in the tooth...)

I understand the reasoning behind expanding the list. But many words that have slang connotations are also legitimate words that people need to use in everyday discourse.

I don't think it does the board any good to limit expression to this degree. We may have members who are minors but this is not specifically a board for children. And even Disney films are full of f a i r i e s.

Just my $.02
To Trenell, MizKerri and geeky:
I pray none of you ever has to live in a communist state.

Geeky is my hero. She's the true badass. The badass who doesn't even need to be a badass. There aren't enough O's in cool to describe her.

    I'm having the first seven letters of
    b a t t e r e d filterd out, too. (The "d" seems to be ok.)

    I have no idea what a "b a t t e r e" is. But I don't think it's a dirty word.
