I agree with you. The only problem, as already mentionned
in the previous anwers is that regexps do a terrible job
at matching curse words. They are inneficient and not
accurate at all.
I guess the only efficient solution here is that curse
words should be tagged as such, then a quick XML filter
would get rid of then easily. The author could even
provide for milder alternatives, so the filter could
accuratelly replace the bad language with a nicer
<p>Go <curse level="very offensive" cats="sexual contorsionnism" alt="
+play with your toys">f**k yourself</curse>
you <curse level="quite offensive" cats="body_part" alt="bad person
Easy isn't it?
Seriously filters don't work, be they for URL's or for
words, so please let's not go there. I haven't seen much
cursing around here anyway so why bother?
