    So there's another thread in GKD about G*nzo knives and a point was raised that in cases where you see that first post gushing about how good they are it's likely a shill working for or prompted by that maker hoping to garner some clicks & boost their exposure that will move their name up the search pages. Even if the thread here turns out profoundly negative it still does that.

    I'm guessing somewhere in the forum software there's a "Bad Word" switch or something similar that can take a word like G*nzo and automatically replace it with a vetted word like Game or Goof, etc.; no more keyword boosting the search results.

    Not sure about a "Bad Word" switch, I used the "Ghosted" switch instead.
