I tried to post a comment about how in the 'ranch universe, cows should be powerful or important and stuff.

I tried to talk about barkeeps chewing over the idea. I used the phrase "chew their c.u.d" without the periods
and the anti-l337 speak software stopped me from posting.

What do cows do on the ranch if they can't do what?

Sorry Pat. It's much more likely to be slang than used in the context you are. Not worth changing.

regex maybe?
cow(s*)[their|its]c.u.d

Of course, I can't type the real regex because the anti-abbreviation police prevent it.

It's not that it is a technical problem. It is that I don't believe enough people will use this phrase for it to be worth the time in implementing an exception.
