Your comments system is overzealous in bleeping, please fix

Maybe it will do the same thing here:

I was discussing cases for my iPhone, and wanted to use the word fuchsia, or if it gets bleeped, a color similar to magenta that ends with uchsia. Now, I understand how the first four letters of this word might look like another word, but let's consider the context. I don't mind auto profanity filtering, as long as it only filters profanity.

Hi waddlingduck.

That problem has been reported to lee, the Forum Admin. I just wonder if the filters are sophisticated enough to distinguish from *uch and *uchsia, (my own stars), or if it will simply filter the whole word because of the first 4 letters.

Let's see what happens.
