PurgoMalum is a simple, free, RESTful web service for filtering and removing content of profanity, obscenity and other unwanted text. PurgoMalum's interface accepts several parameters for customization and can return results in plain text, XML and JSON. PurgoMalum is designed to remove words from input text, based on an internal profanity list (you may optionally add your own words to the profanity list through a request parameter (see Request Parameters below). It is designed to recognize character alternates often used in place of standard alphabetic characters, e.g. "@" will be recognized as an "a", "$" will be recognized as an "s", and so forth. PurgoMalum also utilizes a list of "safe words", i.e. innocuous words which contain words from the profanity list ("class" for example). These safe words are excluded from the filter.

Detect and censor bad words, swear words and profanity in a given text. Currently works with an English only database which includes "leetspeak".
Check for profanity in paragraph texts, and then effectively remove the offensive words with profanity filter APIs.
A profanity API is for developers who want to add profanity text removal functionality to their applications.
Businesses that monitor online communications will find an API for checking profanity helpful. Online communities, chat forums, and social media sites are examples of applications that could benefit from a profanity API.
Administrators for children’s websites will find filters that remove inappropriate words valuable too.
Google and other search engines may suspend accounts that use profane language on their websites. When websites violate search engine policies, their Google ranking in Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs) are negatively affected.
Websites that filter profanity appear more professional, legitimate, and trustworthy. Therefore, businesses that use applications featuring APIs for profanity detection may attract more customers.
Developers that utilize APIs for profanity filtering will be able to embed that functionality into their applications in less time than if they were to write the entire code.
With APIs that check for profanity, businesses will be able to find and remove offensive text automatically.
