Sure is. Brett Green over on Hyperscale is trialling a program intended to 
sanitise the discussion forum by removing bad language.

It's not even smart enough to exclude rude words made by ignoring spaces and 
concatenating the end of one and the beginning of another word so advice 
about a technique to prevent mouuld release residue from affecting decals 
would come out like.....

"You should wa.. in soapy water"

Heaven help the poor chap trying to arrange a meeting in S..horpe

inter alia)
