That's what I figured, except surely there is a space between the s and the H, so I don't understand why that would happen.

Because whoever wrote the routine to catch censorable words wasn't particularly adept at programming and s/he didn't account for spaces and/or define a word adequately enough.  ::)  And as I'm sure we've all realized only too well by now, computers do exactly what we tell them to do - not what we really want them to do.  [wink2]  Everything has to be spelled out specifically or one can end up with really strange results.  :D

All parades used to be like that...that's why the street-sweepers came last.   Hint: horses.
