    I can take a screenshot if you don't believe me (or if you don't see it), but I just noticed when I click on search, the cloud at the bottom of the page has one of the searches that has been searched as "N**GER LOVERS".....if you do a search for that it pulls up this page - http://www.jeepkj.com/forum/f197/%2A%2A%2Alost-forum-back-up%2A%2A%2A-heres-old-thread-discussion-downtime-36881/ as the ONLY search result. If you click on that link you'll notice in the bottom that one of the search tags is ",n**ger lovers".

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I hadn't noticed it before, but I do see it. I'll have to see what we can do about getting rid of that (not sure if I have the forum rights or if it has to go to Shaggy to do).

    Doesn't bother me at all (as i'm not black, nor offended by racial remarks) - but I figured it needed to be brought to someones attention, as we are so "politically correct" these days I can imagine someone would take offense to it.

    Racial slurs of any kind aren't tolerated.

    I'm glad it's fixed, but for some VERY strange reason...

    I can't do anything but laugh.

    Has anyone been able to figure out WHY they were in there though?

    Not sure I even saw this feature on the site before. Is the whole feature removed now?
