    Crudely, I admit, I tried to type the four letter word that rhymes with duck in an email reply to someone, and the program changed the f to a d !!!! I didn't realize that we were being censored. What is next???

    Either you made a mistake typing it (or autocorrect fixed it) or you were using your voice. If you type the word and add it to the dictionary it won't happen.

    I noticed that too, but what's really funny is if you add the "ing" at the end (at least in Swype) the correct word is used.

    F is next to D, the system does not have your word of choice in its dictionary. Just like when I swype night sometimes it comes out might. I just doubt that your word is included in the default dictionary (google has stated it is not in the voice to text dictionary since they would not want to assume you are using a foul word when in reality you were not.) You can send your foul words, you will just have to manually add them to your dictionary and double check that your foul mouth is appropriately being reflected in your texts/emails and I fear we may soon see you message board posts.

    It recognized "shit" right off for me, but I had to add "****"

    I just got an update for Swype and it gives me asterisks whenever I type swears.

    It's so ****ing annoying.

    Edit: See?!?!?!

    What version of Swype do you have? I just tested this by sending myself an email and I didn't see any asterisks.

    Version: 1.55.29.7532

    You want to know what's really funny? Google recognizes ALL those words in its voice recognition. I found this by accident the other day when texting someone. Try long pressing search and saying a string of bad words. My result was:

    #### #### damn hell #####

    In other words, Google recognized both the 4 and 5 letter words and censored them in the text. This is actually kind of annoying - what if you have you Iphone toting exwife in your contacts as "F###ing B####"! ;)

    My swype kept making f**k into duck but after a while it started recognizing it. That is so cool. The Android OS really is smart and gets to know the user.

    I just long-pressed search and gave it the ol' "effing eff eff" and returned #### #### ####- with no matching webpages, of course.

    That's hilarious.

    They left those words out as a safety. The danger is that you accidently curse at the local farmer selling ducks. Honest.

    I don't know if this is a new feature in 2.2, but you can now turn off the voice censoring of offensive words under settings->voice input and output -> Voice recognizer settings. Yay....

    After you upgrade to Froyo you can disable the censoring.

    Settings -> voice input and output -> voice recognizer settings -> uncheck "block offensive words"

    Yeah, it will get everything perfect when I cuss like a sailor, just tried it out!!:D:D
