Bug Description

Summary from a discussion on MyPortfolio:

Objectionable content is currently only reported manually and thus may never be discovered.

Would it be possible to include a dictionary against which site content is checked and put into the objectionable category for institution admins (for profiles / pages that were created by a member of that institution) / site admins (for groups and the default institution)? It will not be possible to find all offenses, e.g. if punctuation is found, but some initial serious offender could be detected.

This is related to bug 792651

My thoughts: if we are doing automatic checking for swear words (or whatever kind of content we want to block) then it should:

- be disabled by default
- only flag content to be reviewed by the admin (i.e. the content is not taken down and is still accessible)

Changed in mahara:
status: New → Triaged
