comment Can I search a site for bad language?
Perhaps I'm not being clear. I don't care what Zed says. I'm looking for a tool to automate a process. Emailing authors is not an answer to that question, nor does it help me get closer to the solution to the problem of encountering a body of online tutorials, liking the technical content, and wanting to quickly decide whether it is recommendable for a group of children that are not mine.

comment Can I search a site for bad language?
Of course. But this doesn't change the fact that tools have been built that measure offensiveness. I don't need perfection.

You are correct, that's the author that initiated the question. The thing is, I often find myself in the position of wanting to quickly evaluate all tutorials on a site, for recommendation for someone else's child, so I'd like to automate the process.

comment Can I search a site for bad language?
Thanks, I had already done this for some specific words. I was wondering if there were a tool that would save me the trouble of thinking of and searching individually on each potentially offensive word.

Not really acceptable considering (as it would happen) given the technological sophistication of this user.
