    No reason to be embarressed Jim. You're not the first person this has happened to, just the most recent. I would think that someone would know how to change the filter to just correct the spelling instead of substituting words.

    That is not the first time that typo has shown up around here. One little slip of an "S" and you are in trouble! Its my all-time favorite CP typo. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Cracks me up. Of course now you don't see it that much since the filter mangles it.

    Why do the filters substitute that phrase for the proper anatomical name?

    I can see filtering out the more off-color slang terms...

Well, after researching online, I see that they are happier growing outdoors. Darn! I wanted an indoor carnivorous plant! Anyway, I have it on the windowsill and am making a go of it, but can now see a Drosera capensis in my future! Do any of you grow them indoors? I read they are pretty tough little customers, and good for a beginner.

    I have one on my desk at work. It is under 24/7 fluorescent lights, and is doing beautifully.

    Dude, I want that.

    *long pause*

    *reads Scott's post again*

    ...24/7?? Wow, everything I have learned about plants has told me that a nightly period of darkness is just as important as a daily period of light.
