In response to JoseLaguna's comment:
The word referenced in the OP was mistakenly assumed to be off color by the software and not the mods. The programmer(s) literally has to go through a whole dictionary and the Urban dictionary and it must be a long tedious process. It is easy to be critical of programmers when you never attempted it yourself.
Proving that I have just a little too much time on my hands....
I just attempted to use the non-word, "sl-lurt" in this post and I wasn't allowed to use it. That tells me that the program has been instructed to disallow any sequence of letters containing s, h, r, and t with a vowel in the middle of the word, regardless of the vowel.
Given the fact that either of the disallowed words that can be made by inserting o or i are quite innocuous I have to ask... WTX is going on???
This is apparently a one-size-fits-all solution to a problem that never existed.
PS.. it also won't allow the letter between E and G when used after WT.
yep, entirely too much time on my hands. :-(
No wonder you were so adamant about the Iglesias trade. You knew you would not be able to discuss a SHoRTstop on this site....
