Weird "Censored" Heading

I was about to make a topic called "Famous Link Badge". When I posted it it said:

"Topic contains censored words: k"

I am very confused about why this happened. Can anyone explain it?

Even when I was making this title I had to change "Title" to "Heading" Because it said it contained the word that is the first three letters of "title"

What about when I was creating this and it did it to the word "title"?

It is used To replace swears.
Ex:
"You have got to be kitten kidding `me!"

I don't know what is going on.

It has been reported on the Discourse forum already, because I went on there and saw it.

But I don't know...

Its annoying

I think they must have fixed it from the looks of it at the moment. But THT would probably have to update HF to get the change?

For some reason, it thinks "k" is a bad word. It's really odd.

Cause there is a bad word in that word
So people could use it in a inappropriate way (not that you would)

So I can't use the word title in the title?

(That is ironic! XD)

There is a swear in there though
@t1_hopscotch yeah but most people aren't using the words in that way. I'm out of replies
@t1_hopscotch where's the pencil? Maybe I can't do it cause I'm only basic

Mhm I see what you are saying — that there is word inside it that is not allowed. It will be the same with the word "button" I think

oh, I see :blush:

I can make this a wiki so you can still share your ideas/thoughts for now :smiley: to add something, click the ... button on this post then click the pencil icon. and just add your name to whatever you say :slight_smile:


t1: Oh, I thought Basic should be able to edit this :thinking: is there no pencil icon on this post for you? (after you click "...")

yeah most people aren't using it in bad ways :smiley: if you do see anything that isn't okay, there is the option to flag it to remind the person :relaxed:
