I've just posted a comment on the new poll and noticed that the word "d-o-c-u-m-e-n-t-s" is being censored, so I had to write docs instead. Just was wondering why or is the word offensive in some languages?

It looks like this: my new do******ents

It's because the word filter didn't like part of that word. Any word that has a possible bad word within it should be set as a "with white space only" type of word. That word has been changed accordingly. If you find any others (an no, please don't spam a bunch of bad words) find any, just let us know and we'll adjust accordingly. :)

Yeah, really need to have those word exemptions.
