Avoid "naughty" words in avatar list


(Michael Brown) #1

A bug… debatably.

This one is pretty innocent, but I could easily see worse words being spelled out:

nope, I ruling out fixing this … its a nightmare to fix for close to no gain.

How is this any different than 5 users conspiring to use 5 different custom avatars that, on their own are innocuous, but when combined, show something naughty?

It isn’t.

The only difference is the (presumably) accidental nature of this.

Presumably nobody will get too bent out of shape when they get a: P L U C K suddenly spelled out in the middle of the topic list if it’s accidental but it could happen. :smile:

This reminds me of Office Space:

Samir: No one in this country can ever pronounce my name right. It’s not that hard: Na-ghee-na-na-jar. Nagheenanajar.
Michael Bolton: Yeah, well, at least your name isn’t Michael Bolton.
Samir: You know, there’s nothing wrong with that name.
Michael Bolton: There was nothing wrong with it… until I was about twelve years old and that no-talent ass clown became famous and started winning Grammys.
Samir: Hmm… well, why don’t you just go by Mike instead of Michael?
Michael Bolton: No way! Why should I change? He’s the one who sucks.

So… no way, why should we change cause the word sucks.
