@edriver I am sorry this is happening and thanks for showing us which words it is filtering out. I will share this with the tech team as they work to fix this software issue.
it did s-h-u-t for me earlier.
So it is too granular towards words that are close to the bleeps you want to bleep. If no one ever bypassed bleep filters the no-post list would only have to be the actual swears or offensive words.
s-h-i-f-t = **bleep**
s-h-o-r-t = **bleep**
s-h-u-t = **bleep**
b-o-t-c-h- = botch
This was a great article, but I’ve enjoyed Don Sherman’s stuff for almost 40 years now. Print version didn’t have any problems with bleeps. I just loaned that print version, with its excellent narrative and illustrations, to my best pal to show his dad, who had an XK-140 in college and used to swap rides with his buddies in their Austin Healys and Porsche Speedsters.
Always, a l w a y s; regardless how crisp and accurate the article, someone's compelled to weigh in with "what this article fails to mention." Don gave us his usual fine encapsulation, a tight magazine piece, this time of the Jaguar XK engine. He wasn't tendering a book or post doctoral thesis.
Try it yourself sometime.
I see your point, but sometimes the "footnotes" people add are interesting too.
"Fails to mention" is a strong wording... and probably not the case here. "Didn't choose to say" likely reflects the author's knowledge better considering how stellar this article is.
