By the way, the filter is opt out. If you go to "User Control Panel" -> Board Preferences -> Edit display options, there is an option for "Enable word censoring". If you don't want the Civility filter, you can turn that off and you will see the world as it truly is. (/Matrix reference)

Apparently what I was seeing was your "somebody just posted something in this thread while you were typing that you should see first" filter

That is a phpbb3 feature that I don't know of any way to turn off (or make opt out).

The civility filter is not pre-emptive - it simply modifies words in your message, but allows you to post the message.
