Lack of interest [Suggestion] Stop Words for Friendly URL's

I'm sure this was mentioned elsewhere but if it was, I couldn't find it ... but I am hoping that their is a way to include "stop words" for the friendly url's feature.

Common Words like "and, of, the", etc.

And custom words like curses. I don't mind them being used around the site but I don't want them in the url's.


Thanks :)

Hold on, I think this was semi misinterpreted. Censored words are stripped out, but that's because they're replaced with *'s which aren't used in URLs anyway.

There's no controls over what text is stripped out of a URL.

Can that be made a suggestion then? strip stop words out of urls, and also some character replacement for URL's so for example replace & with and in a URL.

That was basically my suggestion. I don't care to, or want to, censor words but I would like to ensure those words don't show up in the url.
