your regular reminder that censoring words l*ke th*s is actively counterproductive because it bypasses the filters that people set up for themselves

to take an innocuous example, if i use filters to block the word "orange", and you write "or*nge", you have now ensured that i will see a post that i have explicitly tried to get out of my timeline

@melissasage does this also apply to using certain symbols, like ? and ! alongside words? I just wanna make sure for future reference.

@nonbinary it should catch "orange!" but not "or!ange"

when in doubt, it's basically the same rules as ctrl-f
