Its that way because if a word is abused and winds up going in the filter it takes out all words with that combination of letters. Like you can't say Cocker Spaniel, there are lots of them its why they prefer to have the guides handle it so that we can still have some words to talk with.

In the end it comes down to co operation from the players to follow the rules so that words don't have to go into the automatic filter.

Because IF U has an F and U one after the other as does oF Us and FU or F U is a common substitution for a term not allowed on our site.

So any time those two letters come together, with or without spaces the censor is gonna zap you with the box.

Its a shame that some people can't control themselves enough just not to use that kind of stuff on a site that doesnt allow it. But, since they can't stuff has to be put in the filter so if guides aren't around to catch it the censor will. And in doing so, it eliminates other words which by now means are bad.
