You need to stop using the Algorithm to monitor forums because they block many words just because they have a negative connotation.
You need to stop using the Algorithm to monitor forums because they block many words just because they have a negative connotation. Algorithms cannot comprehend context. Consequently, for instance, if I say something is stupid or evil but it's not directed at anyone on the forum, it will block it. Sometimes it will block direct quotes that have no profane words and just adds information.

I feel it is dehumanizing to use an algorithm to tell people what they can and cannot say. For one, they don't have the ability to comprehend language. They can only comprehend what's programmed into them. If I want to say LBJ is evil or something is moronic, I should be able to use those words. I see that Microsoft is doing this as well in their news forum. Whose idea was it to do something so Orwellian?
