    I think that ipodtouchfans should implement a swear filter. With only really bad words on it. Or have mods changing the swear words into something else. or have a filter that changes swear words into less offensive words.

    I second that thought! People cuss too much on these forums. I don't really on these forums, just in the real world

    Yes, that would be a nice addition....also I wish they could have brick or bricked included..I am tired of seeing those "I bricked my Touch" threads and all that

    There should be a filter to stop bricked being in the thread title, or a warning
    eg. "Your iPod cannot be bricked. If you do go ahead with this you may be FLAMED"

    There are malicious commands in Terminal you can run that will remove all of the contents of / (all files on iPod) if that's not bricked, what is? These people that post these threads should be warned, or give it a name other then 'bricked'.

    My definition of bricked state :

    1.Your iPod cannot turn on anymore, at all, whatever you do or try (this includes everything)
    2.You cannot connect your iPod to the computer via. USB
    3.You cannot SSH, FTP, SFTP, etc. into your iPod.

    True, a few devs have bricked their iPods, but they only say like "I bricked an iPod today."

    EDIT: On topic; I just don't want really stupid works blocked.

    I don't expect anyone on this forum ever had the joy to watch Harry Enfields Television programme, one of my favourite sketches from it was a Spoof Italian drama where they edited the audio to cut out obvious swear words with more acceptable words. I found it on You Tube

    So rather then remove the swear words, replace them with innocuous similar sounding words. That would make some great threads!
