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.

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.

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.

Tumbleweed! Ironically, I forgot that I asked this. But I still would like an answer . . .

comment What is the best site for sharing large files among a specific group of people?
Doesn't quite meet my size requirements at the free level, but thanks for the recommendation.

@Al Everett. Good point, possibly this is a good candidate for merging.

comment Why don't I see the text from Google's excerpt when I visit a site?
I can't see how this is closed as 'not a real question.' It may be that it isn't a sophisticated question, or the OP doesn't seem like the web-app 'power-user' that we hope to attract, but is seems that the question has been ostensibly answerable.
