XF 1.2 Censoring and italics (maybe bold and underline too)

Hi,

We've fallen foul of Googles adsense policies (adult themes), in trying to sort that out, I've noticed that when you do a site search for us, with the f word (no idea who's reading this :)) it shows up in threads when it's still spelt the same, but when the c is in italics for example.

Is there an easy way of sorting this out?

Thanks in advance.

Dave.

I'm not sure I understand.

Do you mean people are bypassing the censor by using bb code on individual characters in words?

If so, there's no way of dealing what that other than via moderation.

Yes, sorry Brogan, not wanting to sully this fine forum with expletives I didn't want to post it, but a clean example:

I've censored Oranges to be replaced with Monkey

People have then posted Oranges and it's posted without replacing the word

@Brogan - Can you think of any reason that doing a replace in MySQL would be an issue? Seems OK on the test site

Example:
Code:
update xf_post set message = replace(message,'f[I]l[/I]ip','funk');

Thanks Brogan - On the test site, it did seem to replace words within a sentence, so in the above example fliped became funked

I'm trying to think of an exhaustive list now - loads to add, thanks for the reassurance.
