Facebook’s Pattern Matching On Comment Moderation Sucks Ass

We’re using Facebook comments on some of our sites and it’s working great, commenting on those sites has increase immensely but I must say that the pattern matching for blacklisted words sucks royal ass.

We’re using the “standard Facebook restrictions” to keep things relatively clean but I have to wonder about that when I need to moderate comments that get caught by the filter because they contain words like (real examples): glasses, mass, pass and classic.

The problem? Each one of those common words contains the term “ass” somewhere inside the word. Surely Facebook could code a fix for this for this?
