From Rosetta Code


One of your keywords might trigger a schools profanity filter and get the whole site banned from some schools. What can be done? At the moment we are left with deleting/changing all occurrences. Can you suggest better? (soon)?

Thanks. --Paddy3118 (talk) 05:55, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

The language has two Arnold one-liner 'keywords' that contain profanity: GET YOUR A** TO MARS for assigning the result of a method invocation to a variable and BULLS*** for the 'else' in an if-else statement. Unfortunately, there's no real workaround in the language. Just to clarify, are both a problem? If so, I can change them to how I have written them here. I can also leave a note on the category page explaining the situation. I don't expect there will be too many contributors, though. Sorry for any trouble. --Chunes (talk) 06:42, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
Hi Chunes, thanks for the prompt reply :-)
We do have other instances where problem words have had the odd character replaced with punctuation, so doing that, and an explanation on the category page should fit right in. Although I undid two of your previous edits they should still exist in the task page history; which could be an easier start to you modifying those two examples. Thanks again. --Paddy3118 (talk) 07:40, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
