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.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
