    First, let me say how much I LOVE the wordflow keyboard. It is a revolutionary - not evolutionary - improvement in the process of typing up e-mails and text messages, and it is probably the single reason I am not going to get an iPhone 6. That said, MS needs to lift the censorship from the keyboard immediately.

    While I appreciate that it does not guess curse words as the first guess (so I don't accidentally curse people out indiscriminately), if I obviously swipe a swear word it should at least offer it as the second guess and let me choose it from the prediction line. As it is now, I never know what words the thought police at Microsoft will grant me permission to use in my private correspondence, so I have to try to swipe a word three times or so, and when I figure out it just won't let me swipe it, nor will it put the word in the prediction line, I then have to tap it out the old fashioned way. I'm a grownup, and if I choose to text a curse word that's my business. Nobody is going to blame MS for words I use in my text messages, so they should **** out. (Of course, I can't easily text them that opinion, because they forbid the word "****.") I'd tell the censors to go to hell, but that word is banned too.

    Does anybody know how to petition MS to remove wordflow censorship in the next update?

    It's just initially erring on the side of caution, then it'll learn you're a dirty bird.

    Explicitely type the word a few times. That is, type out the cursewords in full, that should make it so the learning algorithm picks up on it, not sure how long it'll take though.

    I may also just be talking out of my ***, as I just saw that curse words behave the same (don't word in wordflow) on my phone either, although I surprisingly don't curse that much in SMS so that could be why.

    just as cortana & bing has the option to disable the censorship of pr0n when searching images, there should be a similar checkbox for disabling it on the wordflow keyboard
