You folks are doing a great job on this site! Keep up the good work!

I would suggest removing p-o-o-p from the profanity filter. Sometimes we need to discuss it, and it's not exactly the most offensive word :-)

Just capitalize it. The profanity filter, in all its inanity, doesn't recognize capitals! Crazy Poop, eh?

Yeah, but I don't want to look illiterate in order to satisfy a computer.

...an example where I was forced to look illiterate in order to satisfy a computer.

No, wait, actually I think it's an example where I was forced to look like a prissy old Victorian lady in order to satisfy a computer.

I recently read a historical account of one of the first ascents of Mt. Shasta, ca. 1850. When they get to the description of glissading, they refer to it as sliding on their "unmentionables."

" they refer to it as sliding on their "unmentionables.""

Heck, I was listening to a story on the radio today and some woman referred to her underwear as her unmentionables. As for me, I mention my unmentionables on this forum all the time. I think it kinda creeps some people out......

Not as weird as Smearing Poop across a rock in the desert southwest as the preferred alternative to cat-holes to speed the decomposition process.

That one just takes the Cat's ( self -filtered on second thought )

Knew about this in tundra and glaciers, didn't know it was used in the desert as well.

Of course the optimal technique is to accomplish this without having to use your hands. Have you ever seen a dog with an itchy butt drag its hindquarters across someone's rug? The method for humans is very similar. You can find instructional videos if you search on youtube. Some people find it difficult to master the solo technique, so it can help to have your hiking partners grab your ankles and drag.

GREAT, edifying thread!!! WIth Doug at the helm, who can go wrong? At least now I've learned that we can all have a Damn Gay old time on our Fannies!

Knew about this in tundra and glaciers, didn't know it was used in the desert as well.

Just glad that the method isn't quite as popular on those knife-edge ridges!

Really, having "Gay" on the profanity filter is surely offensive to some people, no?

Even more than Poop, I'm amused that on this forum, we women are allowed to have one breast but not two of them!

Mary, you got me thinking..... testicle?

Edit: Yup. Us guys are only allowed one testicle.

Nutsack. gotta capitalize it.

So here's a question: were these banned words handpicked by BPL staff, or is it simply part of a more generic filter that is used?

I didn't even know there was a filter!
I'm so tempted to try a few Scots expletives, to see if they are recognised! :)

How childish! I've never heard of a profanity filter before. Is the written word so scary?
