Why does the auto-censor not allow me to write in my profile or say in a room "Emily Dickinson"

    You are probably being censored by CW. The other night they wouldn't say in the room that I was watching the Dick Van Dyke show on TV. It came out garbled. I thought I had a key stuck on the keyboard.

    CW have a list of words that are not allowed to be used even if they are part of another word.
    It's rather frustrating when you are typing a long post on your profile and it just happen one of the banned word is part of another word, then everything I typed over 1000 characters all gone and have to re-do again.
    That word is "analyze", or "analysis" because the combination of the first 4 characters are banned. I use that word quite often in my "Tips" posts but have to re-word them.

    Another example I can't name my pet avatar penguin "Torpedo", that word is not allowed.

    Same with trying to name my pet BooBear, which is really my pets name irl. Not sure why

  • Night Guy

    SilverMoon , I believe it's because of the first 4 characters of your pet's name. They don't allow that word.

    A very frustrating one that I have complained about before is the contraction of who and are, who're, is also on the banned list. I pretty much stopped using contractions because of that.

    NG, I'm surprised that they're now deleting your messages if they happen to contain "bad" words. When I've had that issue, a  notice comes up saying  something like "you can't send this message because it contains a "bad word" but doesn't tell you what it is. That means you have to go searching your entire message to try to figure out what word they're objecting to.. I haven't had one of these in awhile, so not sure if things have changed.  I also had problems in the past with analyze lol.

    But they allow people to use Vulgar avatar and Pet names. I have seen some that are totally disgusting!! Makes no sense to me.

    Feel free to report those names. Our team is able to moderate pet names.
