The words "niggardly" and "niggling" are no doubt on their way out as well.


Indeed it has already happened. I remember reading about a city council meeting somewhere, and one councilman was accused of racism because he kept saying the only black member of the city council was being "niggardly" - yes, it is a real word, but was it really necessary to choose that word to describe the only black guy in the room? The jury is still out on that one.

Niger does NOT have to be capitalized. There is a seed called niger. Although the overly politically correct and now pushing to change the name: "To differentiate between the imported niger oilseed used to feed wild birds and thistle - as well as to eliminate any possibility of offensively mispronouncing the word "niger" - the Wild Bird Feeding Industry trademarked the name Nyjer in 1998. Unfortunately, Nyjer seed is still referred to by many people who feed wild birds as well as by some in the industry who package and sell wild bird food and as both niger and thistle."

The words "niggardly" and "niggling" are no doubt on their way out as well.

"`Although we really ought to get the nation of Niger to change it`s name, eh?`
Nigeria is the nation, the Niger is a river."

There is a Niger country too... :/

Niger= nation. Nigeria also = nation. Niger is a river, though, yes.

OMFG! Has the world (especially the U.S.) truly become such a pathetic and oversensitive place that we must censor words inside of words???

How sad; it`s one step closer to the Thought Police. =(

Almost as funny as the time a conservative site filtered the name of the runner Tyson Gay and called him "Tyson Homosexual" because they thought the word "gay" was too positive, or offensive, or something.

My question is, if you capitalize the proper noun `Nigerian`, like it`s supposed to be, would it still filter it?


An excellent point, my compliments to you. Nigeria is only the name of a country if it is capitalized. Same goes for Niger the country or Niger the river.

They would have to or else the same racist a-holes would just capitalise the n-bomb and miss out a `g` just to avoid word filters. Unless they can just remove the whole word `Nigerian[s]` from the filter. It`s basically a giant train of fail.

@ sourkrauter you can`t make someone to resign...It`s just the graceful thing to do when you do something as dumb as that. On another note that`s messed up how all these people always get caught talking poo off the record, reporters are so shady.They got Obama too.

cobrakiller...that`s the problem. A lot of racists are ignorant d**ks that couldn`t spell the word `the` given a chance, let alone the proper spelling of some slander.

This leaves Yahoo! no choice but to filter the mispellings also, to prevent people from being ignorant racists in public places like the internet.

My question is, if you capitalize the proper noun `Nigerian`, like it`s supposed to be, would it still filter it?

this, combined with the republican guy on the news that they are tryin to make resign cuz of what he said about obama, forces me to the conclusion that the whole racial thing is way too thin skinned. get the f*ck over it, they just words!

"Why do they have to censor "Nigerian"? NIGERIAN NIGERIAN NIGERIAN... Isn`t he from Nigeria? Wouldn`t that make him a NIGERIAN?! ~rolls eyes~"

that is the joke. no one manually censored it. it`s just that no one caught that the bad word filter would automatically censor it. it was a small goof due to the design of the filter that no one noticed.
