So, I searched on this system for prohibited words and found that this hasn't been fixed.

What words are prohibited? "Fanbase" was highlighted the first time, so I removed that part. But now it doesn't tell me. This is my first attempt to review movies on your site. 

This doesn't make me want to try again.

Really, Jane? You don't recognize both obvious four letter prohibited words? Or was your post meant to shock and scorn those who find these words offensive and not belonging in a meaningful review. I seriously doubt you need our help in locating them.

Oh. I didn't think that would be an issue. If it were, I'd expect them to be highlighted in the same way other prohibited words were. Or use a different error message, since "fanbase" was also called prohibited.

Based on the number of posts I found in the search, many other people have difficulty identifying what words are prohibited.

But thanks for assuming I'm just trying to "shock and scorn" people. Maybe, just maybe, other people have a different view on the use of four letter words.

Maybe you'd be surprised how many people use expletives in daily language
No.  I hear it.  I just would never expect it in a film review and see no need for it.

Maybe you'd be surprised to know that just because a lot of people do it, it's not widely considered acceptable behavior.  And since children use this site, and since it's a violation of the Terms and Conditions you agree to when you use the site, it's even less acceptable (in fact, since it violates the T&C's you could have your input removed and account disabled).

I am not sure who raised or educated you but if you cannot write a simple movie review without dropping F-bombs, perhaps you should find a different hobby.  Since you're suggesting you use expletives without taking any note of it, you might consider that it only makes you look bad.  In case you don't care what people think of you, consider that a good percentage of people won't take you seriously and hear what you're saying...and isn't that the point of offering an opinion via reviews?

Anyway...good luck to you!

Wow. I find your assumptions about me, without knowing more, more offensive than a couple swear words.

There are people who are well raised, well educated, with excellent jobs who swear on a daily basis. I'm one, I'm married to one, and I work with many others.

Cheers.

Really? You see no difference between conversations with friends and colleagues (no matter their background) and submitting a review to a major website to be published? Your language should always be tailored to your audience. Would you use such language with your minister or a child? As my grandmother was wont to say, "Ain't you got no raisin's?". Of course she wouldn't have used even such benign words in an article meant for publication.

Did I say that? Though really, it's a fan review. It's an informal opinion platform for any average joe that wants to toss his two cents in. Seems like a casual setting to me.

I have neither.

I don't think "benign" is the word you're looking for. 

I'm done with this. So far DavidAH_Ca is the only person to not make offensive assumptions about my character or intelligence. What a toxic community.
