Watched words also applied to staff?

According to these posts, staff posts are immune to watched word checks by design

But it doesn’t seem to work in my deploys, tested on both 2.7.13 and 2.8.2, post with the admin account

Yeah, they are immune to all of the other sections, but replace is special.

Putting this in #feature , many communities want replace to be applied evenly cause it is used for making certain words hyperlinks and so on.

For example despite being staff when I type safe mode it becomes a link here, and that is desirable.


Does ‘Censor’ work the same way as ‘Replace’ ? Because I find that admin posts are also censored. Is there any way for staff to bypass the rules?
