Funny, the actual word 'porn' is used here, especially in thread titles. Most other discussion forums (food & non-food) I belong to spell it 'pron'. I think it has something to do with search engines. Just an observation here.... that's all.

There used to be a word filter here many years ago that would block the word saltwater because of an offensive word contained in it.

We had no recipes for taffy, I guess.

I'll guess it's a strategy to increase the number of visitors (and ad dollars), but if that's what they are looking for, they will go away disappointed.

Some forum software will not post the word spelled "porn." The word pr0n was developed to get around that.

Yes, I've seen that several times as well. We've always just called it good ole "food p*rn", so that's what I'm used to. My apologies if it made anyone go

The lovely world of word fliters, when you have to right chicken chest and "that Japanese fungus" and it becomes ever better when it added to a English language site teaching Swedish... I had a dear friend writing in Swedish, "this is my conclusion of the matter "and it became "this is my population paste" instead. Slut in Swedish means ending, slutsats means conclusion how ever with out slut.... it becomes batch and that Swedish is tricky...

When filters were first installed, in some places, you couldn't post 'Dick', for example, which obviously had to be dialed back a bit ...

I had a friend on another forum who couldn't talk about her pet Cockatiel.

I've come across filters that won't let me refer to a female dog as a bitch. It's standard terminology. E.g., there are 3 bitches and 2 dogs in that litter of puppies.

I can’t imagine a filter catching”shiitake,” as it’s got two “l’s”...

Considering that practically the entire English speaking world mispronounces it, you’re most likely right.

I belong to a poodle rescue site.

Ever time I type bitch, it corrects it to be "casey". So weird.

I asked the owner of the site about it. He says his name is Psycho D. Poodle.

Could it really be?
