    When attempting to comment on articles in Yahoo News it is not uncommon to have my post deleted or censored by the foul language filter. An example is "isn't its" is censored due to the 3 letters after the apostrophe. Another is "dinosaurs extinction" for the s, blank and ex. I've had many other posts be treated the same for other legitimate word combinations triggering your poor filter.

    If you can't create a halfway decent filter in this day and age that uses contextual decision making then you might as well stop filtering for language or just kill the comments all together.
