The problem lies in the fact that if a post was made prior to the word being filtered (in vB) then it is not filtered when a user views that thread - since it only checks when the post is first made.
I added some code to make it so this is no longer the case as it parses each title/post for certain words and *'s out expletives as necessary. I also made it so that if any of those words are in the search query that the user would not see an AdSense ad come up. Ironically all this only applies to maybe a few thousand posts out of 2.2+ million, ah well.
Anyways, I'm now waiting for Google to review the site again before they let me put the code back up (I've been with them since August without a problem)
I hope what I did was sufficient, what do you guys/gals think? How would you tackle this?
I'm beginning to wonder if the thread with janet jackson and a picture <snip> brought all this on.. damn her.. lol
