The heater is really good to be honest. No problems with it as far as I can tell.

PB,

Not predictive text, I think - just the forum software changing a possibly banned word from printing as such. Any words on the list get changed to something else - the alternative being supplied by the list compiler.

For instance, in the case of ‘all (pub) landlords are bar stewards’, if the offensive word was keyed in, instead of ‘bar stewards’ the software may change it to ‘all landlords are very nice people’, or something similar.

Yours happened to be added to, not completely changed, I suspect.

@Oliver90owner:
Looks like you're right. The 'offending' word has been changed again in my last post yesterday, thus making a complete nonsense of the first paragraph. Good job this isn't a plumbers forum! :D :D

These substitution phrases have been uploaded in the past by the Administrators for this site as the language can be quite specifically Motoring orientated. ...

For example, if you type in a particular 4 letter word for excrement you get MY FAVOURITE CAR IS A DATSUN CHERRY
Whilst typing 'Buggered' doesn't get changed....


If you type a few swear words and expletives in and then use preview, it's quite enlightening...
