Nah. we've had this for ages

It's done by the same Nigerians that we all know and love. They've sucked in loads of people who've paid, say, a couple of thou up front to get the "winnings" from the lottery.

We've had some consumer watchdog programmes on TV - "Watchdog" on the BBC - warning us about this.

"Joan and William Stupidfuckers were emailed to say that they had won the first prize of a million euros - without buying a ticket - in a foreign country's lottery. After they had paid over ?3,500 in 'administration charges' without receiving their prize, they began to suspect that something might be wrong."

"Joan and William Stupidfuckers" slipped by the TR censors beautifully. Nice one!!!:^O
I'm not as adept as you. I would have referred to them as Mr & Mrs Dumbass.

I have noticed some stuff slipping by the last couple of weeks. Blatantly obvious stuff too, just plain curses.

I am not sure what is going on with the sensors?

It's their eyes....

burned them out with all the nasty words people insist on trying to get passed them.....

They have to let some stuff go by

by Montgomery Gator In reply to It's their eyes....

I have known people with the surname Lipshitz. If they searched for substrings of "naughty" words, that name would come across as "Lip****z", and that would not be respectful of people with that name, especially if they had a pet Shitzu dog!!
