English to Japanese

Dear Henry,



I have recently noticed some people ignorantly using a word \"JAP\" when he/she specifies the language groups to post a job. Although I understand that it is mainly used as a clipped form for Japanese, it should be put like \"JPN\" instead. The word \"JAP\" is definitely an ethnic slur/taboo even if they don\'t intend to get the Japanese upset. Are there any ways that you think you can exclude some offensive words from your website by your programming skills?



Sincerely,

Satoshi
