Is there any way to disable the language filter for private messages? I realize that posting certain words to the general public should not be allowed, but in private messages this would seem to be something of personal preference.

No clue if vBulletin actually supports this or not, but I thought I'd ask.


Thanks

So you're saying if they are not spelled "colour" or "armour", they are not words? Well, that's true for British English. I take it that you think American English is not legitimate. We say "estrogen" you and say "oestrogen".

Let's continue our jokes privately. That way you can curse and I won't get taken so literally.
