    Swear word filter

    Hi, I posted a similar thread a few days ago (and thanks to Johnn for the entertaining links).

    What I need is a list of "banned" words to filter out of user input. vBulletin has such a filter, as do most guest books, etc. So obviously I don't want to reinvent the wheel here.

    Can anyone provide such a list or a link to such a list?

    hey FreakySid!

    Couldn't come across a list of such words.. though one site mentions that there's over 500 words deemed "vulgar" and "it would be impossible to list them all..."

    Anyway, just check out this link for laughs:

    I thought it was kinda obvious. I need to remove offensive language from user input as does this forum (running vBulletin) and most bboards, guest books, etc. It would just help if their was an existing list I could use as a base. If anyone has one that they are willing to share, you are welcome to email me. Thanks.

    I know I'm gonna get pinged on this. But, I've always considerd blocking "offensive lang" a form of censorship. Don't get me wrong, I understand the reasons behind it.

    Anyway i was just curious.
