Why are my private messages subjected to the profanity filter?

    Title says it all.

    Surely I can swear in my private messages.

    That is something that should be user configurable IMO. In fact it would be great to have a global profanity filter that can be turned off and on by the user.

    Old Three Stooges routine...

    Judge to Curly, "Do you swear?"

    Curly - "No, but I know all the woids." :D


    I may be wrong, but I think the profanity filter is across the board... we can't pick and choose which part of the system it works on, and which part it doesn't.

    Nope, I just checked all the filter settings and automated setup and I didn't see any flag to skip PMs when filtering or for individuals as a whole. It's either all on or off...

    Easy enough hack, to simply not filter PMs for bad words

    In the 'messenger.php' file in the 'sources/action_public/' directory

    Find this line about 1/4 the way down
    Code:
    $this->parser->bypass_badwords = intval($this->ipsclass->member['g_bypass_badwords']);
    Replace with
    Code:
    $this->parser->bypass_badwords = 1;
    Or and alternate method make it look like this...
    Code:
    // $this->parser->bypass_badwords = intval($this->ipsclass->member['g_bypass_badwords']);
    
    $this->parser->bypass_badwords = 1;
    Just put the // in front of the original line to "comment" it out (// voids that line from being executed) then you can then easily reverse the hack by simply moving the // marks down to the hacked line instead...

    I have not tested this, simply because I'm too lazy, but it should work without a problem...
