As a funny example of the "varying ideas" topic. Here where I work (hi Doug) we had the Big List of Bad Terms from one of our other business units that was supposed to be the "master" list of words that we were to filter on. The one that always gave us humour in meetings was "downblouse" .. Yes "downblouse" was on the restricted list and supposed to be filtered out. YMMV as to what should or should not be filtered and should really be something that the consumer side deals with. Personally I'm attempting to increase my ranking on Cursebird, but that's just me. -steve
