    Default Filter out bad words

    Hey guys I was if it is possible to filter out words before they are posted on the site. It is two bad that the only way I know how to do this is if the user only enters the bad word... I was thinking of using if else statements, but that doesn't work so well.
    I don't know how you can filter out words from a textarea after the form has been submitted... But if you guys wanna see the code I'll post it up...

    $bad = array('monkeys','fish','potatoes');
    foreach($bad as $w) {
    $string = str_replace($w,'',$string);
    }

    You might want to replace it with something like #@#%%!!, or else it won't make any sense.

    It's fun to replace it with weird things.
