User-Generated Content & A Curse-word list

Hey all,

Has anyone created part of their system that allows users to enter comments/info in while keeping it clean? A friend and I were talking about this and he said his business generated a curse-word list and used it against the content generated.

How would this work in FM?

 

I guess the field in which people are typing could have a script tied to it that checks via a patterncount () function to see if any words in the CurseWord Table are present. I guess it could substitute that found work for random characters. Or it could chide the user for using such language.

 

I'm interested in trying it out. I'd love to hear what others have done with this topic.
