Description

13 years ago
At the moment, the comment review queue is frequently overloaded to the point that the number of reviewers around at any one time simply can't keep up with the workload. Many of these comments also contain offensive and obscene language that is not spreading a good image on a public-facing website such as this. Many of these are never even flagged for review and remain in the comments sections. 

It would be less of an issue if obscene language was simply replaced by '*' characters and perhaps automatically flagged for review. These comments could even be automatically deleted if we were feeling really adventurous...

Do we have an international dictionary of obscenities?

No but does that really matter at the moment when we are only accepting comments in English and the site is really pretty inadequate in terms of internationalisation?

We're pretty intl now, and I don't think we need to filter automatically here.  All reviews are moderated now, too, which should help.
