:-) For all who have wished to write/transcribe "Bill's transmission was the same as D.ick's", "face eternal d.amnation", "ho.mo sapiens", "I hate to b.utt in", "knee-j.erk", "risking a b.loody nose", "spaciousness-c.um-awarenness", "we will a.ssemble a resource", and similar in future without the system making out that you are uttering profanities, I can suggest the following...

Into your "banned term" (which using Preview or a hasty Send will alert you to), 1) insert a fullstop, 2) colour your fullstop white, 3) resize your fullstop to "Tiny"* -- this reduces it to size 7 (the text-resizing function is between the video and colour functions, once you have used Preview or Send), 4) change the "7" to "1" in the sizing-code.

Remember, someone will be down on your banned term with an admin delete if you try to get sneaky with this one! (-:

* Really it doesn't matter what you resize it to, as you will need to change the size-figure anyway. Once you know the colour and size formatting-codes, these can be typed directly into your text, without using the function-buttons.

Yes, and possibly more than an admin delete

Yep, I still make the rounds once in awhile Smile

I think my message above was grouchier than I intended, sorry. I hope people can express themselves as they need to.

I would like to say, though, that if the instruction set above generates too much extra work for admins in removing banned terms and putting people in forum time-out, we can't leave the post up. Those who are interested should probably copy Anne's comment in case it has to be removed. Hopefully that won't happen.
