Can you filter profanity while keeping upper and lowercased letters?

How the @$#%! do they do it?

I can change change everything the uppercase or lowercase, and then censor, but then the entire filtered message ends up in either uppercase or lowercase.

Is there an ASP/VBscript workaround for this? ASP.net maybe?

There's nothing intrinsic; you'll need to write your own solution...

Use the VBScript/ASP Replace function. vbTextCompare is case-insensitive:

Replace(expression, find, replacewith[, start[, count[, compare]]])

Const vbTextCompare = 1
strText = Replace(strText, strProfanity, "****", 1, 10000, vbTextCompare)

Thank you -so- much. I was literally losing sleep over this.
