BCO, tried typing 'wristwatch' into a post ? (That's 'wrist-watch' without the hyphen by the way.)

Now simply adding a space or hyphenating the word gets round the Expletive Filter, so no major probs there, but my question is this: is someone, ie you or GCO, playing with the filter or did this software arrive with the default setting of 'Boston' ?

If it's the latter, could you tell me where on this rock an arm-mounted timepiece is considered a shocking oath ?

:roll:

Oh, and on a military website I'd have thought that the word 'c ock' would be permitted, especially when describing the action of small arms.
:wink:

I don't think either BCO or I have played with the original issue swear filter. Good point about c ock - had me laughing this morning.

MS Word has a similar system which will automatically change words on the fly. This can be put to very good use by anyone with access to ajdt's (or any other paper producer's) PC. A well known but very underused gag in my opinion. Extracts from 'corrected' staffwork more than welcome on ARRSE.

Cheers GCO,

Are you able to adjust the filter ?

Why is 'wristwatch' (wrist watch,) included ? Was the software designed in Royston Vasey ?

Yes, a fine tool to be used. I altered the "replace ...with" function so that everytime my boss typed "PIRA" in a report, it came up as "lesbians". How i laughed when i was doing those extras.
