Wait, isn't trying to bypass the word censor a TAZ violation? :LOL:
No more so than using wtf, because I posted it using those characters (our built in censor would have made it all stars).

While I posted the above in jest, your response makes me ponder then if Pete is correct or if it really isn't a TAZ violation and the TAZ staff member who deleted my post some time back for posting to a *remote* link that had a far less profane 'curse' word in it, citing it being a TAZ rules violation, was over-reaching a bit. The world may never know.

Technically, bypassing the censor means just that - for example by using alternate characters that resemble the letters in a censored word or linking to an image that shows the censored word. Using an abbreviation like wtf is different, as would be saying “f word” instead of ****.

Um, no... unless you’re suggesting I censor “wtf”.
Depends, is there a TAZ rule (though not listed on the current https://theadminzone.com/help/terms) to prevent people from bypassing the censor or isn't there? Doing something like "F***" sure doesn't do much to hide what the intended word is; at the least it is much more apparent then "wtf".

I believe this thread has been split off from another so there may have been some loss of context.

If you reread how it started you'll see that it started in jest. ;)
And I wasn’t being serious in response. The definition of admin is rule maker, not rule taker.

Apparently not, but isn’t that how forums continue to exist? :p
