I just posted a response in this very catagory and unknowingly used a word mylot doe not allow. Has this happened to others? Will I get booted off the site because I tried to use it? How many words are unacceptable? Please help me out. I don't want to offend anyone but I need to know if I get to many of those warnigs if I will have to stop postings. I write like a talk so sometimes I don't watch myself. What I wrote was the S word and I called myself it so was I wrong?

Don't worry about it. I think the system is in place to make sure that no post can be offensive, or at least not too offensive to others who don't like the use of certain words. As you say you write like you talk and others do as well so imagine if there was system like this in place the moderators would be working flat out dealing with all the complaints. This way you know the word can#t be used and can change it, I think sometimes people put in symbols to represent certain letters if they really have to use a particular word, so they might use this *** in place of letters. Have fun and please don't worry.

Hi there, what's up? Well, mylot doesn't allow implicit words, and so you cannot post any discussion or response if it's contains some unallowed words here in Mylot. I don't have any idea on how many words does not allowed to use here in Mylot. But obviously, those words that unacceptable are those BAD WORDS. Have a nice day ahead and happy posting and earning here in MyLOt and Godspeed! Kiko

That's really weird, because i have seen someone post with the F word, and it was posted, so yeah. Not sure if it got deleted eventually or not?

It's only a filter, they're not marking down your name every time you do it. Heck most people "alter" the forbidden word so that you can tell what it is, but it's not the banned word anymore.

Its just a filter, I do it alot too and have never been booted. It just asks you to change the word. I change the word and they allow you to post. No harm done. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think its just a precaution so you don't offend someone.
