    Issues with Profanity Filter

      Two issues I've noticed with the profanity filter...

       

      1. Words with non-alpha characters are not being filtered. So if I have "F00" (those are zeros) and "B4r" in my filter list, they are being ignored.

       

      1. Phrases are not being filtered. For instance, the individual words "Foo" and "Bar" are not vulgar, but when combined into a phrase such as "Foo Bar", it takes on a whole new meaning. The current profanity filter doesn't seem to cope with phrases. I could enter "Foo" and "Bar" separately, but alone, the words are harmless. I believe this is related to the first issue, as a space could be considered a non-alpha character.
