    Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries! Now go away or I will taunt you a second time!
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.

    Just keep it at a happy compromise I guess.

    Censoring swear words can also go wrong.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    Mine relates to a pachyderm's appendage inserted into the insultee's mother's private parts.

    Seems to me, *******, is a word that was invented to replace another more offending word. So where do you stop?

    I haven't seen the 'censored words list' but I can't imagine it being more than about 10 words (not including their foreign language equivilants).

    Now spell check would be a nice feature to add.
    Don't listen to me, I'm a wack job.

    Isn't the spell-checker built in the browser?

    There should be IQ check before every post

    See, you can insult people just fine without using swear words.

    Spell check is not an available tool on Chrome. Apparently, only on IE and Firefox. Any suggestions?

    What do you mean it's not on Google Chrome? I use Chrome and it has Spell Check.

    From their help page

    Adjust spell-checker settings

    Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
    Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux).
    Click the Under the Hood tab.
    In the "Web Content" section, click Languages and spell-checker settings.
    In the Languages and Input dialog that appears, use the "Enable spell checking" checkbox to turn the spell-checker on or off

    I have no idea WTF happened with the quoting in that post

    Thanks, Doc.

    Turns out there are 2 English language settings, only one of them enables spell check.
