The first language I learned was Pascal.

Not really.

Agreed. There's a reason no real programmers use Brainmath.

Why didn't that change to brainrot?

Pascal was one of my first too, especially for programming competitions.

Because the filter doesn't check parts of words.

Hmmm, on my browser it does.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.****If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.** **A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.**

**Online**

It is not browser dependent.

Protip: use regex es for developing the filter

'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it'

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

You did not read the protip

He changed it manually.

You cannot regex, because you don't really want the filter to always check the words.

Because some words contain swear words without being swear words themselves.

Like that obfuscated language which you named a while ago.

Oh, ok.

Anyone of you participate in any programming competitions?

I participated in the competition organized by our country, but that's pretty much it.

When I was younger (around 12) my programming skills weren't the best, so I only participated in local and national level contests in Canada (first 2 times I didn't even make IOI). But now I do ACM ICPC in university every year.
