    Sorry I disagree.

    If the keyword is c*** then a positive hit is where it picks up anything with the word c*** in it, including scunthorpe. Scunthorpe is a false positive though as whilst it is a positive hit for the system, it is not a horrible swearword, it is a nice placename. In your analogy a false positive is a a legit file being flagged as a virus maybe because it has certain attributes. In my analogy a false positive is a legitimate word being flagged as a swear word because it has certain attributes (i.e 4 letters). It's the same thing.

    If the keyword is c*** and it flagged up the word dog for watever reason then that is NOT a false positive as it is not even a positive in the first place, its just a plain mistake or an error or a bug.

    I dont know why we're arguing the to's and fro's as this is a thread about making Impero better rather than a discussion on the trials and tribulations of the english language....

    You are arguing because IT Geeks can also be language Geeks. Get yourselves over to the Pedants group and continue the healthy discourse.

    I asked Impero to come along to our Durham / North East meeting and a lot of the NM's from the schools were relatively impressed and we managed to get a good deal for those schools in purchasing - I am sure Russ could do something similar for other areas of the country.

    As a matter of fact, we had Smoothwall demo their kit on the same day and this was also a good seller with the NM's.

    @Butuz; FWIW we would term any block on scunthorpe, wristwatch, essex as false positive.

    @Sylv3r; - glad you enjoyed our bit! We've done many nm meetings, talking to a lot of folks going off-LA. Anyone who's not met us yet and would like us to attend, let me know. Be good to say hi to Russ again

    Now how about a "dream team" setup for a nm meeting

    Impero, Smoothwall & ruckus all demoed at the same time!

    Just a thought.

    I've done 2 out of the 3, but not at the same time, got @MarkPower to demo to our IT Managers 2 summers ago and a few have bought it Smoothwall demo'd the other week and near enough everyone bought it! Think that was an excellent sales pitch by Team Smoothwall (did it help the LA wrote the cheque I wonder.....) Infact we were talking Impero and its competitor products the other week, maybe worth Russ making a trip up North to visit.....

    Just to briefly touch on language again, please watch out for open usage of swear words, some counties have pretty aggressive filtering
    @tom_newton - wristwatch is a new one on me
