Is something running to censor profanity? i don't have a problem with that, but it is causing some trouble. Words like c-l-a-s-s-i-c and a-s-s-i-g-n are being censored and it looks more than a bit silly.

New Feature : Modified User Titles. If you are using the DEFAULT user titles, you should see something a bit more colorful now. :) Sorry, due to security issues, I can't do the same for Customized Titles.

I like all the new bells and whistles. Now if there was just something shiny you would have the entire gambit.
