    Wait, isn't trying to bypass the word censor a TAZ violation? :LOL:

    No more so than using wtf, because I posted it using those characters (our built in censor would have made it all stars).

    While I posted the above in jest, your response makes me ponder then if PetePete is correct or if it really isn't a TAZ violation and the TAZ staff member who deleted my post some time back for posting to a *remote* link that had a far less profane 'curse' word in it, citing it being a TAZ rules violation, was over-reaching a bit. The world may never know.

    Technically, bypassing the censor means just that - for example by using alternate characters that resemble the letters in a censored word or linking to an image that shows the censored word. Using an abbreviation like wtf is different, as would be saying “f word” instead of ****.

    Um, no... unless you’re suggesting I censor “wtf”.

    Depends, is there a TAZ rule (though not listed on the current https://theadminzone.com/help/terms) to prevent people from bypassing the censor or isn't there? Doing something like "F***" sure doesn't do much to hide what the intended word is; at the least it is much more apparent then "wtf".

    If you reread how it started you'll see that it started in jest. ;)

    I believe this thread has been split off from another so there may have been some loss of context.

    And I wasn’t being serious in response. The definition of admin is rule maker, not rule taker.

    Apparently not, but isn’t that how forums continue to exist? :p
