censor thingy needs fine-tuning I think

I saw some changes to some of my posts and the first one I thought a moderator was being funny but then read in a post that the censor thing was turned on.  I think it needs a bit of fine tuning since the word 'assassin' (those who kill for a living) got turned into 'rear end' which makes my post look a bit weird...  (just previewed it and it is changing it here too!)  I dont want people thinking I am planning a "rear end guild"!    :twisted:

The first one I noticed was where I said I am a PCA (personal care assistant -those who help others) and that got changed to (personal care rear end) and that one I thought was added as a joke to my post just following it where I thought the post after mine was a riddle for me to figure out.  

I think it is doing a search for just those 3 letters together or something like that and switching the whole world whether or not it is a swear word to the censored version.  In reading through my wip thread I saw it changed words there too and I dont usually use swear words so think it needs a bit of fine tuning...

You could have posted in the thread Fligg made.

There is someone in the TIL forums who swears and swears all the time. Every thread he makes is complaining about something or other, and every time he says "I F***ing hate....", and they don't turn the censors on. Yes, I know, Miserina is one to compare, but... yeah. I don't mind if you turn the censors on the f word and the alternative word for poop, but...
I just realized there was no point to my post.
anyways, I don't mind the censors, I mean you won't see much difference in my posts at least

Yeah, I noticed that Jac's REL thread was retitled "rear end Time While Reading."

I think I got a bit carried away with the wild cards.  I'll tweak it.

I never noticed that there were censors.
I've dropped some f/s-bombs in the past and never noticed anything changed in the posts?
