    This is not necessarily a gripe, just a question.

    I attempted to change my Custom User Title to a phrase not derrogitory, but I guess one of the words may have implied possible derrogitory entries. It censored the word. My title is currently what I want it just shortening the word to a letter.

    Also as a note I used the same phrase in a post and it posted normally.

    The two questions I have is:

    Is the word "devil" allowed in the forums (use as "Devil's Advocate"), and if so may I use it as a title (in the same use as above)?

    What specifically is the verbal limit (I can guess the obvious 3, 4 and 5 letter words starting with a, s, f and b)?

    Well for starters you can't say words like **** or ****. ;)

    "Devil" is allowed in the forum, if it wasn't it would show up as "*****" when I typed it. Just like the word **** showed up as **** above :lol2(I crack myself up sometimes).

    I can only assume that the reason it censored your title and not the thread is because the word devil isn't all that bad of a word.

    Having your title say you are the devil (I know it's not how you intended to use it, but the vb script can't tell the difference) could raise some religious issues.

    I had banned the word awhile ago due to someone using it in an in-appropriate manner. I have re-allowed the word, but will be on the watch (not you) for any other in-appropriate uses.
