Is there any capability to automatically censor certain words within a post?

There is no built in word censor. It wouldn't be that hard to add one. Some quick design thoughts on this are:

Create a class that reads in a set of RegEx word expressions and replacements. Have a method to check a string against them and make replacements.

Then call this call inside the Post setText and setSubject methods.

Probably some performance things to think about but those shouldn't be that hard.
