That might be a good idea. There's list of bad words for this purpose. Some
even come with an SQL dump for easy insertion to the database. :)

The problem with this is that we'd need to supply a "bad word" list for all supported languages. Then there is the question of what constitutes a "bad word". For example, John (Abela) maintains (or used to) a quite exhaustive list of user supplied "bad words". I personally consider many of them to be "fine" for many boards ... yet for others even that list may not cover enough bases.

IOW it's (IMHO) really an "admin preference" thing and thus rather difficult to "support" in the base install.

So are you saying that there will be support for it OUTSIDE the base install? ;)

Yes, I agree with psoTFX, I thin kit really depends on the board as to what constitutes a bad word.

A premade list of loads of bad words with checkboxes to enable/disable whichever ones you want?

How about you just type in the words you find offensive... It's more fun that way ;)

Want spanish badwords? I can tell you them and the meaning in english. But it think most people will decide what's a bad word for them or not. You can make it easy for admins to change with wild cards too.
