Do you employ bad words filter on your forum ? Did it work ?

I somehow feel that certain guys cannot write a full sentence without using a swear word. They just got used to it.

It would be a must have in almost all communities. Some web trolls purposefully provoke decent members with swear words. If we can sensor them, that will improve community health.

You can do

[*]1. Disallow posting if it consists of swear words
[*]2. Change bad words into random characters or stars
[*]3. Clean that part of text altogether.

Looks like you know a lot about it. Yes, it is quite ok to use such features in forums where all type of crowds participate. Not everyone would find it interesting. Especially when there are people of all ages.
