Is this a ploy to make her say the forbidden word?

I'm pretty sure it's not - some fg rules have been added including explaining the rules in the first post, and he's said this on other threads too (e.g. take a penny leave a penny)

(The main goal here is to see how many posts we can go without the forbidden word in the thread title being mentioned in the text of the post. There's a streak counter on chridd's site.)
And it doesn't even contain The Word!

They don't. chridd's scoreboard looks for the exact string of four letters.

Chridd's scoreboard wouldn't catch edits, right?

That's right. Once it's seen a post, it doesn't check it again.

I don't think it checks immediately though, so its probably best to load the scoreboard page before doing the bad thing.

If you're committed to doing the bad thing, that is.

Well, I'm not a complete monster. I still allow decent streaks.

i feel like we're just gonna be talking for ages, and due to the relatively low frequency of the word in question we could get pretty far without it.

someone should prolly try this with something more common

The point isn't people doing it by accident, though. We have active saboteurs trying to screw us over.
