Blocking Profanity from Comments (4 posts)

    Some people on my website are using profanity and derogatory words, and I wanted to know if there is a plugin where I can edit this. Instead of a cuse word, maybe you get F**** or something.

    Thanks.

    Why the f*** not? What's wrong with saying f***? If you're a real f***ing programmer, you use that f***ing word quite a f***ing lot.

    F*** F*** F***ie F***

    I watch too much South Park. :)

    Not sure if this works with the 2.3.1 version of wordpress but I'd give it a shot:

    Hope this helps and please excuse my poor attempt at humour.

    Thanks for a fast response, but when I installed it, and tried submitting a comment with profanity, nothing happened.

    I am using wordpress 2.0.11

    You did upload the badwords.txt file into the plugins subdirectory as well, right?
