amused by automatic "no bad words" filters

Several of the forums and discussion boards I've browsed have had some kind of "no bad words" filter installed which replaces naughty words with a string of asterisks.

Like so many other automated processes, sometimes it goes too far. Just encountered:

It took me a moment to figure out why it'd been bleeped.
