    I love when people don`t know about the swear filter. It`s so cute. The word c*nt filters to mean person.

    The guy who said he thought it said "mean-person" actually said "c*nt" the IAB naughty word filter turns it into mean person :-).

    I love the word filter here. As opposed to the word filter for the Fantastic Contraption Chat, which warns you for the slang terms "gotta", "sorta", "gonna" and "dunno". Using abbreviations such as "gtg", or "ur". Nerd words like "pwn", "pwnd" and "noob". you even get warnings for things like "I`m bored".

    You also get kicked/banned for actual swearing instead of just omitting the word or exchanging it for something else. There are also dozens of functions the chat can do, that are obscure but to the greatest of weirdos that think playing with a bot is funny.

    "how could cult be read as mean person?"

    I-A-B auto-edits posts to change words, rather than being honest and marking censorship as censorship.

    Actually, it`s worse than that because it uses the crudest, most ludicrous method possible to do so. As a result, it will auto-change letters within words, break links, etc, etc. I haven`t seen censorship done so badly for years, but at least it`s bad enough to have some amusement value.

    So if you misread the `l` in this sign as an `n` and write that here, I-A-B`s software will change it to `mean person`.

    But it will also do it for this town:

    "i love british people
    they sound like harry potter"

    There is such a huge variation in accents within Britain that it can be difficult for people from different parts of Britain to understand each other. That`s after generations of radio and TV being a homogenising influence - it was even worse in the past. You can travel 30 miles in Britain and find a significant difference in accent, even today.
