GBN Auto Switch

I suspect that most of the people who have been here awhile are aware that the forums are set to automatically replace certain terms with other terms, which is something I completely understand and support. One can debate if the replacement terminology really decreases the likelihood the site will be flagged, but it really doesn’t hurt anything.

I did however happen to have the same banned term replaced with two different terms in the same post - first time the replacement was Contractor (capitalized), second time the replacement was companion (not capitalized)! Just curious, how many alternate terms are there for most of the prohibited terms?
