Adding Words to the List
When the Profanity Filter list is first created, it is empty. You must add to the list the words you want to be filtered.
To add words to the list:
Note As you add words to the list, follow these rules for wildcard matching:
|To match||Use this wildcard||Example|
|Any single character||?||sh?t matches "shut" and "shot."|
|Any string of characters||*||q*t matches "quit" and "quartet."|
|One of the specified characters||||h[oa]t matches "hot" and "hat," but not "hit."|
|Any single alphanumeric character in a range||[-]||[b-d]rown matches brown, crown, and drown. Ranges must be in ascending order and can include the characters [0-9, a-z, A-Z].|
|Any single character except the characters inside the brackets||[^]||l[^au]mp matches "limp" but not "lamp" or "lump."|
Note This private message can be as simple as, "Don't use [word]."
Note If you create a filter from a chat client, use the following command to add words to the filter:
EXTMSG PFILTER ADD LIST=filter_name BWORD=word
To add a wildcard expression to the filter, use the following command:
EXTMSG PFILTER ADD LIST=filter_name REG=expression
