Your disallowed words list grows with every negative comment you direct at people in any thread. I then add the critical words to your list. Thus does your vocabulary continue to diminish. In this latest post you lost the ability to use the words "hardwired" and "box" because you used them to in essence call Taq close minded, and also all words based on "censor" and "suspend", and also "mad".
Your vocabulary is constrained beyond just the words in your list because your attempts to get around the constraints have forced me to use wildcarding for most of the words in your list. That is why, for example, you can't use the word "like", because the wildcarded version of "lie" is "l\S?iS?e\S?", which will also remove "like" and "lice" and "lime" and so forth. Your use of "ha te" for "hate" forced me to add both "ha" and "te" to the list, so now you can no longer say "ha te", but you can also no longer say "ha ha".
You're not the only one with a non-empty disallowed word list. You may have noticed that you haven't been called a stupid, crazy blithering idiot of a moron lately, nor a troll.
Not Faith's fault. I mistyped the wildcarding at the end of one word, "\S?*" instead of just "\S*". The "\S" is any non-white-space character, so "\S*" mhatches 0 or more of non-white space characters, in other words, all the characters until the end of the word, include characters like "-" that Faith was using to avoid the filter. The erroneous "\S?*" matches one non-white-space character followed by 0 or more of any other character, i.e., it matches the entire message.
It's fixed now. Again, apologies to Faith. I'll try to be more careful in the future, but when proofreading one can easily miss mistakes in regular expressions.
I'm a participant in this thread and so shouldn't be moderating, but it doesn't seem unreasonable to briefly slip into my moderator role to ask that people move discussion of flood issues to the Geology and the Great Flood forum. There are a number of appropriate threads there, or new ones may be proposed.
