To test this theory:

Yoplait

Activia

Gogurt

******e

Dannon

I see what you're saying, but how many words would be deleted because a sequence of letters spell an offensive word?  Are they using some sort of algorithm that detects such things?  A mod reading would know the name of a very popular product is not a slur.


 

@Foxxee - Since your post and mine were immediately edited, that clearly was not done by a moderator but by automated technology; most message boards have such filters built into them. Filters can be set to detect particular word and letter sequences, including placement of those letters (such as that three-letter combo at the beginning of a word) so that only specific and potentially offensive words and sequences are flagged or changed.

I would be sure to substitute a heavy fat yogurt, not any of that watery no fat stuff.

Neufchâtel cheese can be used as a substitute for cream cheese. You can also use silken tofu in some recipes. Years ago, I made an outrageous “cheese cake.” I substituted silken tofu for the cream cheese. It was so delicious.


@Mindy D Sounds delicious.  I've never had a situation where this need came up but it's an interesting nugget to have.

 

Thanks!
