Strange Problem With Profanity

  • rainbowgolfcart


    So, it appears that bbPress on my site does not like the word “fuck” or any of its derivatives. When users try to post a topic or reply containing this word, after submitting, they see “ERROR: your reply cannot be created at this time.” My account, the keymaster, is able to make posts with this word. If I give other users a keymaster forum role, then they may also make posts with this word. No other roles (not even moderator) can make posts with the word. This is all independent of the users’ site roles. All other forms of profanity, no matter how strange and distasteful, seem to pose no problem. How can I fix this and allow my users to use the word “fuck” to their hearts’ content? I have already tried everything on the bbPress troubleshooting site. I have no words listed in the ‘Comment Moderation’ and ‘Comment Blacklist’ boxes in the WordPress discussion settings, and the maximum rating is set to X. All forum topics on my site are private.

    WordPress v4.52
