What I meant was that instead of having a list somewhere of bad words, you
could have an ZCatalog.  Right at this moment I can't think of why, but
there you go.

Anyways, if this is the way you want to do it I'd suggest that you create
you own Python class or ZClass with the meta_type of 'bad_word'.  Make
sure that you subclass CatalogAwareness, and that this is the first class
in you subclass list.  This object should have an attribute called word
(or something) which contains the bad word.  (Hint: it could also have a
'replace_with' attribute which is what you would substitute the bad word

Now, create yourself a ZCatalog instance and create a search interface for
it.  This could be a Python Method (Script) or a DTML Method -- I think
there is something called a Z Search Interface even.

Index all your bad_word objects.  (Or index all of your objects.)

By now you should be able to search in you ZCatalog and find all objects
with the meta_type bad_word.  This isn't enough however.  You need to be
able to do some comparasins on the 'word' attribute (and to be
efficient) we add a (hope I get this right...) FieldIndex to your indexes
in the ZCatalog.

Reindex all yor bad_word objects -- or, again, let it find all objects.
(If I'm not mistaken, this is under the "Find objects" tab.)

>From a Python Method (Script) you can now do this:

# This will match all bad_word objects that have a 'word' attribute
# which is matched by something in the supplied 'words' variable.
# The 'words' variable is the string you want to check for bad words.
results = []

for my_word in string.split(words, ' '):

for result in results:
    bad_word = self.Catalog.getobject(result.data_record_id_)
    words = string.replace(words, bad_word.word, bad_word.replace_with)

return words

All this is from the top of my head (it's worth mentioning that I've been
pulling looooong hours, so it's not a bright little head right now), and

Hope this helps!
