    So, what is she? :D

    This has come up a few times today (Wednesday, really).

    The filters take out the word o-l-y-m-p-i-a.

    But we have the silly outcome that we can't talk about our *******ns in Olympic year.

    :confused:

    Anyone any ideas?

    It's the name of a venue run a by a certain company that shall remain nameless...

    I'd wonder if that word should only be censored under the music category. Maybe Arts. That venue wouldn't be mentioned in the sports forum.

    I remember having trouble with Matu****a in the past.... they're a big electronics company... luckily they're unifying their brand under the Panasonic label so it won't be an issue any more.

    I don't like Matu****a, I can't unlock my region codes on my laptop :mad: I am too niggardly to buy a new one.

    Hey, that wasn't starred out.

    Gee, thanks, I might never have worked that out.

    I was talking about a workaround, such as feylya's. Sounds like a good idea. Is it workable?

    Edited to add: It came up in the Maths forum, too. There's a Mathematics *******d and there're Maths' *******ns.

    Why not use the NOCENSOR tags?


  • Registered Users Posts: 40,867 ✭✭✭✭Xavi6


    We get it in soccer on Champions League night with Olympiakos.

    Oh and of course there's Scunthorpe too which is even funnier!

    Olympian.

    Cool.

    Is there a way to filter "Olympia " and not "Olympian"?

    I'm intrigued. Why do you have to unlock your region codes on your laptop? Do you mean your DVD Drive, or what? Do tell.

    Olympian fix0red.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,727 ✭✭✭✭Sherifu

    I removed Olympia from the censor, lets see how it goes, it must have been causing problems around the time that they who cannot be discussed were the subject of much discussion.

    If it causes problems again, we will censor it - just because we are good at that sort of thing:)

    We'll get that old guy that likes Pat Kenny and Gay Byrne to come round. He doesn't like censors. :pac:

    Indeed.

    Its been 2 years now. Is it even still going ahead? Nelson Mandela languished less time in the legal system.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,255 ✭✭✭✭The_Minister
