I understand that certain words are inappropriate for Hannity Forums. We have a automatic word filter for certain words like ■■■■ or ■■■■ or even ■■■■■■. We also have very strict rules about using a filter bypass. This is something I would NEVER do, and I often try to warn others to edit/delete their post when I come across such a thing. It’s actually pretty rare I see this done, as most people here understand the rules.
I don’t understand why certain words won’t get filtered, but will instead require a moderator to approve the message. Hopefully I didn’t create too many posts this morning while I tried to figure out exactly what I said that needed to be fixed. Unlike the filter, I can’t choose to utilize a different word, because the forum doesn’t actually tell me which word was too naughty.
In the thread in question, I was simply trying to respond to a poster utilizing the same language they used. I couldn’t even quote them without getting my post flagged.
Why are certain words filtered, and other posts are flagged? Are the words on the flag list worse than the words on the filter list?
