Perhaps I should have described it as an anti-stupid filter

How do you come to your conclusion?

Stupid filter indeed, hilarious.

I think this is one of the few forums that is quite well 'self policed'. it's not often that the FE has to get heavy handed with us is it?

Maybe it's because we're quite grown up compared to some of the rowdy forums...
