Description Tran Vinh Tan 2008-04-16 10:26:48 UTC
As you can see in the URL, we have banned many bad words, but newly created users still can create articles like "Fuck" or stuff like that.
Comment 1 OverlordQ 2008-04-16 10:33:31 UTC
think this INVALID.  the regex doesn't match just shit/fuck it needs "is (a|an)" in there.
Comment 2 Tran Vinh Tan 2008-04-16 10:39:21 UTC
but use the same syntax. Are they wrong, too? 
Comment 3 OverlordQ 2008-04-16 10:43:09 UTC
No it's meant to block pages like "(Name) is a ass", not title's containing curse words.
Comment 4 Chad H. 2008-04-16 10:47:40 UTC
If you wanted to block a bunch of bad words from being used--as opposed to a phrase, suck as "So and so is a XYZ"--I'd go for this:


And just put (within the parentheses) a vertical bar between each term. This serves as a logical "OR" to the regex engine.
