    The only one I'm aware of with this ability is Ultra Keyboard.

    The feature I'm looking for is a way to long-click on a word in the suggested words bar & block it so that it never comes back as a possible suggestion.

    Anyone know of any other keyboards that can do this?

    Swiftkey does this (and is excellent in word predictions!)

    I wasn't aware Swiftkey did this - I own it. Will check again. Is it a long click on bad words?

    As near as I can tell from their FAQ's & testing, you can only block/unlearn a previously learned word - not block one from the dictionary.

    Yrs this is years old, but maybe some Googler will find this helpful.. You absolutely cannot do this with SwiftKey. You can long press a prediction to tell SwiftKey to never predict that word again. But as soon as you type that word again, SwiftKey will add it back to the allowed predictions, rendering this feature all but useless. It's overwhelmingly frustrating, and I can't believe the developers refuse to address this much wanted feature
