Word Filter

I know that the vBulletin software has customizable word filters. I'd like to suggest in a gesture of goodwill to those techs that generously donate their time and knowledge on this site to make the word 'stealership' a *****-able bad word.

Thoughts?

i thought about doing that...but im not sure...

I kinda figure there is nothing wrong with them calling a dealer whatever they want to......and there is nothing wrong with us not helping someone because we are offended..... IDK.... How about some others thoughts???

It's sort of unnecessary censorship, but it wouldn't bother me. I think Marc has the right idea. If you want to talk the techs down then don't expect any help.

I like the idea of editing it out - the techs can still decide not to respond to those that use it as it would be appearant. It still baffles me that people continue to use it after the numerous requests of the techs not to.
