There is an auto-censor that will censor words by replacing the word with *****.

 

One can get around this by using tricks like this.  E.g. say 'issue' was a censored word.   Type it in as iss-ue. 

 

(oh and don't try to guess WHY a specific word is censored since often it makes no sense).

Thanks for this tip. Much appreciated.  I went back and fixed it using this approach.
