It's really easy (if you accepted PMs I would tell you), but we'd better go back to the piano now... Actually it is my guitar time right now...

Actually, now I'm not sure how everyone else is doing it. The method I have is a little tricky, and not that easily adaptable. "DAMN" doesn't get censored, so that's not proof you're really doing it....

And yes, the "e"'s are the same, the "l"'s are the same, etc. (The way I did it, actually, was to insert an "invisible" character between two of the letters, so my "hell", which really contains five characters, doesn't match what the censor is looking for.)

By the way... see that slight line break in the paragraph above? That's an artifact of my invisible character. There's probably a better way to do this, that won't create a line break.

It doesn't get censored? I thought it would because Mark had written DAM...

I had just used a letter that was not what it seemed to be...

Well, I just tried another word (the word that triggered this thread), and it works perfectly (from the Preview)... The trick is that appearances can be deceptive.

There is another artifact on the "e" when you quote it. I thought you found one in the charmap.

Indeed, Damon. And that is what bothers me so much about a nameless someone re-writing my posts. It is so... heavy handed, authoritarian, and dictatorial.

Anybody remember "Babe: The Gallant Pig?"

Haha, Jason - you know I didn't know who Justin Bieber was until a few days ago. My only reaction was "WTF?"

Bypassing a filter is child's play. Coincidently "Child's play" is also where you learn to curse.

Yeah, when I found out about him, I was like "Oh, another mainstream pop singer. Moving on..." And I hear so much about people bashing him. I don't really care for making fun of him or bashing him in the same way that I don't care to listen to his music. It just doesn't appeal to me.

Musically speaking, I do have a couple guilty pleasures that would maybe be a "disgrace" to mention on a classical piano forum! Lol...

EDIT Okay, I'll share one with you guys. smile

That word is not censored, though. At least, it wasn't when I demonstrated a day or two ago.

But besides that demonstration, I have no use for that word, or any other swear word.

I didn't know either...

And I heard of "Australian Idol" in its 7th year!! Just the year they stopped it I think. blush

I haven't ventured in here in a while, but found this thread via a search (after seeing a thread in either the Piano or Piano Tech forum on Transparency on PW), and seeing as it's still somewhat recent, I'll contribute a couple thoughts...

For me, personally, I'm ok with the careful and occasional use of words that may be considered "profanity", in some cases. I wouldn't use them willy nilly (not sure if that's gonna get censored here, and I hope you all will understand what I mean when using it (another forum I participate in DOES censor the "w" word), though. As far as I know, I don't think there's any word that I would consider to be ALWAYS offensive, for myself at least.
Of course, though, I will usually do my best to respect others that don't care for those words, although sometimes I can slip. smile

Also, some places I've seen censorship, it's been interesting, especially on the Zynga (facebook games) forums - words that I know have normal perfectly fine uses are censored there. Examples include a 3-letter word beginning with "g" that has meant "happy", a 5-letter word beginning with "p" that's another way to say "cat", a 4-letter word beginning with "d" that's a nickname for Richard, a 4-letter word beginning with "c" that's a male chicken (as well as some other birds, and is used in some translations of the Bible), and I'm sure there are others I can't think of at the moment.

Also, on a tech-leaning IRC chat I sometimes participate in, certain cuss words are replaced with a particular person's name. And, in a first-person shooter game I often play, I remember playing on one game server several years ago on which certain words (especially body parts) were automatically replaced in the in-game text chat with their so-called "proper" terms in capital letters. And, a year or two ago on another game server (same game), I heard someone play a song over the microphone that was probably from the 1950s or so, containing the 6-letter "n" word, and in no way did I ever find anything offensive about the way that word was used.

Also, one of those 7 dirty words is quoted in Isaiah 36:12 (as well as another place I can't remember at the moment) in the King James Bible. (BTW if something, or its subject matter or anything remotely similar, appears in the Bible, then due to the respect I have for that book (although I will say I often fail at actually doing what it teaches), it automatically makes those types of words non-offensive for me.)

Last but not least, one thing that does annoy me about such language is when people take formerly perfectly legitimate words, and change their meaning so now we have to be careful saying them anymore. mad


.

.

.



Now for something that's (hopefully) on a gayer (the original meaning of the word) note ... wink

Okay, I'll bite: What DID the fish say when it swam into a wall? wink

As for profanity, I had a brief but impassioned argument with my 15 year old daughter, who insisted that the word that begins with p and rhymes with "brick" is acceptable slang that she could use despite her tender years, and I told her that it most definitely was not. I won. smokin
