This shouldn't get under my skin, but being called a "dunderhead" (via a once-favorite character, no less!) has rubbed some raw nerves.

Indeed, we have some odd filters around here, considering how puritanical they can be while still letting a word like that get through.

I can't always predict every objectionable term that might be used, so I rely on forum posts like this one to alert me to them.

It's been a long time since I've had the opportunity to add any words to the filter, so I'm grateful to Julian for his recent use of "baloney," one that I obviously missed.  I didn't even realize that "dunderhead" was another one, Nightwing, but I'm willing to go ahead and come up with something for that one too.

Superboy-Prime COIE, who's not vulnerable to red sun radiation:
isn't the same person as Superboy-Prime IC, who was kicked in the dunderhead by red sun radiation on multiple baloneys.

Obviously, when Superboy-Prime COIE went to a paradise dimension, he went to the land of Kurt Busiek's Secret Identity, and this Superboy-Prime IC guy is an impostor.  Of course, we didn't talk about wishing for an impostor Superboy-Prime.  Sheesh.  Give us -some- credit, Julian-Primez.

For a minute, I thought Superbo..MAN Prime was going to say: "Heh" or "Stupid earth" or more of Geoff Johns' recent Prime dialogue. 

I read DC One Million, written by Grant Morrison Cheesy, just before Infinite Crisis came out. Initially, I thought DC One Million Superman Prime was the adult Superboy Prime arriving in Infinite Crisis. DC One Million is set in the future afterall. It's too bad this isn't the case. Instead, we get Superboy Prime: 1) whining a lot (even beyond "But I was going into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters" whining) 2) punching heads off heroes 3) in general, killing 4) commiting a form of patricide 5) self-mutilation 6) toadying. That's the kind of characterization we really need in this day and age. 

Maybe during Final Crisis, Grant Morrison will rectify Johns' Superboy Prime mess. 

In regards to Geoff Johns, I really enjoy most of his recent work. Booster Gold is nearly flawless. Sinestro Corps War is fantastic, fully dealing in Green Lantern mythology. Justice Society of America #9 had pancakes. Infinite Crisis was just awful compared with his earlier and now later books. It's too bad.

Hopefully you can filter out that specific iteration, and not all occurences of "dick" in general.  I mean I can see the appeal of filtering out the name of that place where the Devil lives, but when a harmless salutation appears here as "Hecko" (as in "'Hecko Larry' is my favorite MacLean Stephenson vehicle"), something is wrong.

I'd hate to see the Batman forum filled with discussions of "Putz Grayson" or "Wee-Wee Sprang".

At least Hell and Ass still works, as they should. Hell is not a real cuss word anyway and ASS (All Star Superman) is just the best comic to be release in a long time.  Yet one of the nastier cuss words still gets through... I suggest runt as a sub.. cough...
