Bad words according to a computer
November 16, 2015 3:58pm CST
I was answering a post about wines a while ago. I submitted my answer and the server? computer? program? would not let me post it. I was writing bad words. Shame! I said. What is the bad word this time? I don´t even know so many bad words in English. I looked and looked and there it was: the name of a tipe of wine holded a secuence of letters that were bawdy. There is this awesome white wine (I´ll cut the word so as to fool the program). I suggest you try it. It is Cha rdonnay. In stupid computer programs, words and even word pieces are misunderstood because they are checked out of context.

Many of us have encountered the same problem, which can be quite puzzling until we notice the wording of the error message. This odd filtering system actually renders many place names unacceptable, which would be a real inconvenience for anyone living in such a place. I wonder if such place names are deemed acceptable when registering one's address on the site.
