Badwords addon updated

"Bad" words filter 2.0 addon has been updated. It's a bit more advanced now in terms of understanding badwords surrounded by special symbols and punctuation. Still, of course, there's no definite cure for "bad" words in your forums except for constant moderation! This plugin can always be used as an additional automatic moderation helper though.

Maybe this kind of substitution would improve spam filtering?? (i.e. v|c0din, vic0.d1n, vi@gra, @ssh0le, et cetera..)

....foreach($text as $tk=>$tV){

just an idea...

Yep, your suggestion is good in some cases for english/latin alphabet words.

i would write it as follows though:

foreach($text as $tk=>$tV){
$tV=str_replace(array('3','@','0','$','.','_'),array('e','a','o','s',' ',''),$tV);

This "alphabet" can be extended with characters from other languages. Perhaps, in future plugin releases we'll add some customizable symbol/character dictionary.

Thos who wanted to use it now can use this solution now and customize it according to the "bad" words they encounter.

For those who don't understand :) - this will replace symbols used to "hide" badwords in posts with their character substitutes - like @ will be replaced with "a" etc. before checking a word for validity.

nope, it acts like that only in case of badwords found, symbol replacements are made only to check if there's a bad word hiding ;)
