You know what, how about this: Instead of changing LQ because of Kenny, let's change Kenny instead ...

Good idea, how about for every letter replaced with an $ or whatever he is barred from LQ for 1 hour.

From the few comments I've seen around here over the years, it is a huge amount of data. Probably way to much to allow any filtering. Hey, I was just dreaming.

Believe it or not, the majority of us here probably are very familiar with the idea. One of the nice features of LQ is that most members use that stuff between their ears for purposes other than structural support. What chaps my hide about the constant "satirical" misspellings is that they are old, boring, hackneyed, and generally don't contribute to the overall quality of the discourse. Absolutely zero original thought goes into them, and they never make a point that couldn't be made in a much better fashion by using plain old English.

We all know that Microsoft and Adobe are all about $£, ie. making money. Kenny, I know that you're a teenager and probably too young to know it, but I'll break it to you anyway: Believe me or not, but companies are set up to make money. That is why people open businesses. Therefore, stressing constantly that Microsoft is about $ is as original/funny/entertaining as stating that water is wet.

Yeah, I'm tired of using those kinds of misspellings anyway. It's just as hard for me to create them as it is for you to decipher them.

I know that LQ is much nicer with those kinds of misspellings than Ubuntu Forums, that's for sure! However, that's still no excuse.

But Microsoft, Adobe, Apple, Oracle, etc. are still bad enough to warrant them.

I think M$ is ok to have, but $i£ver£ight ... come on now. I don't even know how to produce a pound sign with my keyboard.

Hold down Ctrl+Shift and type "u00A3".

Or get a UK keyboard, then it's Shift + 3.
