Please find out why the two vandalism filters now on en-wiki (460 and 461) do not seem to be auto-flagging obscenities like the f*** word. If there is something wrong with the filter code, please make the necessary fixes so that we can start trapping these foul words prior to deployment, using the Auto-flag feature for now.
460 Feedback: Common Vandalism
461 Feedback: Vandalism in all caps
WE just met with Erik and Howie about this today, and they view this as the highest priority item before we can deploy more widely. Since community editors are not viewing this as a high priority (yet), we agreed that we need to do that work ourselves for now, until they realize the importance of this feature.
Once you have figured out a solution, we recommend that you create a few more filters for trapping obscenities, such as the ones listed in this Google doc.
Here are a few candidates to consider, which are getting a lot of hits on en-wiki:
384 Addition of bad words
135 Repeating characters
12 Replacing a page with obscenities
189 BLP vandalism or libel
The goal of this assignment is to do what it takes to auto-flag (or disallow) as many known obscenities as possible from the feedback stream for the next deployment, scheduled for June 19.
