Sorry to say it is shopped, which is why those who go there have never noticed it.

"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.

Gee another dumb comment from another dumb american! Samsonite, you are not helping how you americans are perceived around the world. Now go fill your mouth with another triple Big Mac or whatever you guys think is a normal meal and think about what you said!

"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 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.

"Jar-head

how could cult be read as mean person?"

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