Could we avoid using the word "p 0 rn" for displays of pictures of nice instruments? It gets us filtered by a lot of locations.

To help with this, I've automated the board to substitute the word "lichen" for "p o r n." Seems like a decent idea.

Test: lichen

It was a useful way to use the search function due to the fact that so few people on this forum use the word “P()R n” . Interesting that you have to use a word like lichen to even come close to the obscurity of “P()R n” on this forum.

Good luck.

I thought that one of the reasons that the word was used was because using the search function to search for the "flute P()r n" thread was so much easier than searching for the words "flute" and "pictures". I assumed that you had chosen the word lichen due to it's lack of use in the forum.

Search for “flute pictueres”, you get 10 pages, many asking for a flutes picture to be posted.
“Flute P()r n” The top thread is usually the “Flute Photos!!! Come post your flute pictures :)”
“Flute Lichen” 2 threads

Or perhaps I have no clue what is going on.

Edit: I think I understand now, I just saw the "A word about lichen" post. Showing that I was totally clueless about what you were talking about.

Edit2:On second thought, just forget I posted.

I guess my biggest problem is that I have never seen 'lichen' used in any posts regarding whistles, so it was all a bit confusing to me.

There seems to be some question about why, of the entire range of possibilities, I would have selected the word "lichen." This is your opportunity to explain my behavior to me because, frankly, I don't have a clue.

Perhaps because we're likening our instrument pictures to pr0n?

Or perhaps because it's sort of a funny word?

:party:

Never ask why when you mind works in wonderful ways.

Yes :lol: . For some of us,

I think it isn't just the choice of the word "lichen" to replace "lichen" that is so funny, but also the fact that the word "lichen" apparently had a special meaning here that some of us were totally unaware of.

Those of us who are somewhat out of it first had to deal with Dale telling us that we should not use the word "lichen" for displaying pictures of nice instruments. Okay, that was weird right there and a little scary because it seemed like Dale might have gone crazy.

Then as people started responding, we grasped that apparently people were using the word "lichen" for these photos, even though we had never noticed it. And so, although relieved to find that Dale wasn't going crazy, we then started thinking we were going crazy for not having noticed this.

Then, there was the necessity of figuring out that the problem wasn't that porn-seekers were coming here but that the forums weren't showing up on searches done with computers that block out lichen.

Then comes the surprising announcement that from now on the word "lichen" will take the place of "lichen". Lichen? :lol: :lol:

I think that to explain the selection of the particular substitute word "lichen" over, say, "vagabond", "zirconium", "brilliantine", "lulu", "liverwort", or "Edsel", just to name a few possibilities, would be pretty difficult. I think it would probably require us to deconstruct Dale's mind---which would involve "discovering, recognizing, and understanding the underlying—and unspoken and implicit—assumptions, ideas, and frameworks that form the basis for thought and belief". I'm just not up to that right now :lol: .

Hiw did the word in the title slip through the filter? Is the filter case sensitive?
