Obscene Words

The Obscene Words macro scans a single input, compares field values to a list of obscene words, and either replaces obscene words with a defined string, or flags obscene words while retaining the original value. You may optionally specify a custom word list to use instead of the provided obscene word list.

The Obscene Words macro has a single set of configuration parameters:
