Had the last three letters of the word referring to a group of students in the same room as their instructor for a scheduled time censored with the last three letters becoming asterisks when I quoted another post?

Thanks for your report. We are having issues on the site including image display. We are working on it but it has not been a quick fix.

Don't mean to make light of the problems with the site, I'm sure it's frustrating (and thanks to those working on it).

But...I guess I just needed something to laugh about today because that (cl***) made me laugh. @Sour Lemon better clean up her act a little. ?

The allnurses profanity filter is excessive and obstructs conversation that involves phrases that are not actually profanity. It's annoying but it's up to the allnurses administrators to properly manage this function, which they have been unable to do, hopefully they can improve on this.

I thought it was pretty amusing, too. ??

I'm not seeing this ... class ... this is a class ... are you in my class?

@Rose_Queen are you still seeing this? Can you direct me to the top/post?

Joe, it’s normal in the original post I quoted but still showing *** where I quoted it. I mentioned you in the thread so you could find it easily.

the above quote "class" came through not censored

I replaced the *** on the other post. Let us know if this continues.

OTOH, I like it because it means I can swear with mother***ing abandon and the ***ing curse words that drip from my mouth like honey are automatically censored out.
