General Bug with profanity filter on forums

While posting today, I discovered that the profanity filters the prefix "h o m o" even though many words using this prefix are in no way derogatory or vulgar.

For example, ♥♥♥♥geneous, ♥♥♥♥geneity, ♥♥♥♥ sapien, ♥♥♥♥morphism, ♥♥♥♥normative, ♥♥♥♥cyclic, ♥♥♥♥nym, ♥♥♥♥phones, ♥♥♥♥phily, ♥♥♥♥allele, etc. There are many other examples.

I'm hoping that this is a bug and is not intended. I understand that a small subset of these words can be used in an inappropriate manner, and thus should be caught by the profanity filter. However, to completely eliminate a prefix of the English language, which generally means same (from the Greek origin) or man (from the Latin origin), is absurd. If this is intended, it isn't even a case of being overly politically correct. Rather, it just seems like poor programming or poor foresight.

Can someone from SuperCell please fix this and/or explain the thought process behind not allowing us to use these words?

It also filters “SBA” without reason
