I understand the necessity of the filter and I agree with it. I would prefer to not be exposed to foul language and conduct. However, both in the chat and in the forums it is far too sensitive.
I just finished typing a long forum post in the homework help on long-division. After I hit post I was given a message that many of my words, none of which were profane, suggestive, or otherwise, would be censored. The words were mostly math problems and the word 'approach' (for some reason) as well as the phrase 'and do'

I'm not sure what the purpose of filtering these words is, in fact it seems to be entirely harmful rather than good as now someone is hardly able to understand the answer to a question they have asked.

I run into the same problem in chat. Every time I get 'frozen' I read the rules to see whether I have violated them somehow. I don't believe that I ever have. The only explanation is that the chat filter (which usually in these cases isn't even filtering words so I have little warning of this happening) is taking my messages to be spam and the flood detection freezes me. This is never the case.

I'm not sure how to be more specific so I apologize if it seems that I am complaining rather than being constructive but this is very frustrating, especially to someone following the rules and trying to help people out here.

If you find a word that is not supposed to be filtered, tell an admin (their profiles are filter-free) and they will make sure it does not get filtered again. Because there are so many words, they can't know all the words that are going to be filtered. The filter is getting better each day because users help find words that shouldn't be filtered.

I can dig it but, I don't know who the admins are and it seems to be an issue with the parameters of the filter (I don't presume to know exactly how it works but I can guess) so, I figured the feedback area would be the best place to discuss it.

Hey, if you find a word that is blocked but isn't inappropriate, please contact one of our admins so that they can sort it out for you. Their usernames are Jordan, James and Allen. If you're typing maths, it usually will get blocked because the filter will think that you are trying to give out your phone number.

So lame. Is there a way around that?

A lot of the time, long strings of numbers will get filtered out because they think people are giving out personal information. So it's hard to talk about math on here usually.

The only way I've ever seen is using O's instead of 0's, it sometimes can help.
