So yeah, I just recently tried to make a post and was informed to my shock and dismay that any form of the N word was strictly not allowed on gamefaqs. I had no idea what triggered this warning so I basically had to go through and remove or change words with the letter N at the end of it.

I tried to replicate the issue after I got the post to go through, but I was unable to cause it a 2nd time so I'm still mystified by what was wrong. I realize that there are people who are actively looking for ways to bypass the censor, but in cases like these it's just confusing.

tl;dr if a banned word is detected, have that word highlighted so I can see what it is I need to change to avoid the banned word. Not everyone is trying to send coded insulting messages.

I still remember when I was stopped from posting because I was apparently calling somebody a "nazi". In reality I had one paragraph end on a word that ends with n, then a new paragraph started with "Azimuth". It was really confusing to try and find what was wrong. I think has been changed since then - it happened a decade ago, but the fact is - the filter is THAT memorable. And I don't think that's a good thing.

on a semi side note, Today I couldn't use the french word for late because of how Gfaqs handles words.
