But that's just as strange!! Neither of those are dirty or offensive words?

Yeah maybe, but there are plenty of other words that pass without problems. I can't even call myself 5neaky lol

I'm guessing the forum was slapped with a nastygram from some building company's solicitor at some stage, and they made the decision to play it a lot more careful in the future.
One bitten, twice shy.
Unfortunately, it means you have to do some d0dgy typing to make general comments so as to get past those 5neaky filters they have set up.

There are a number that I came across.. and I kind of understand them wanting to protect not only themselves but their members from accidentally using a word that could wind them in deep water. These are not just social boards for chatting about anything and everything but the discussion of industries that have a lot of Acts, Codes, Regulations and so on that go with it. Defamation comes in many forms.
It sucks because sometimes the word being blocked is the perfect word for the comment.. but there are many words in English that can be substituted

I'm on, or at least was on a facebook page, where you couldn't use words like idiot, spaz, moron, imbecile and the like because it was derogatory to persons with such conditions. In this case I believe just Politically Correct, more than anything.
At least that isn't an issue here.
