    Hello hello~

    I've a forum running and there are some not-so-nice people advertising their website on it.
    I can censor the name of the site no problem, but I noticed certain issues with censors.

    For example, if I censor "spammy-spammers" to "Please ban me, I'm an idiot!" it will affect admins as well.
    That is more a bother than an actual problem, but if you try searching for "spammy-spammers" you'll end up with something like this:
    The following words were not included in your search because they are too short, too long, or too common: ban, me, , I'm, an

    I don't think admins should be affected by censors, and I think censors should have more options, eg. where each one is applied, and perhaps regex/simple pattern matching as well.

    The admins must be smarter,use instead "spammy_spammers"
    Well,users might find it out and use the same or similar words such as "spammmy-spammers"...
    On the end censors would become useless.

    Censors stop most common bots and send a message to legitimate users, that the topic they've tried to discuss is not allowed.
    (Also having links to spam sites/rival sites negatively affects SEO)
