We have a requirement to check for bad words entered in the reply
content on the share point forums.

Following is the requirement & business logic needs to be implemented,

1. The admin will enter list of bad words (the following is the
abitary words used for explanation) i.e "Bad word1", "Bad word2", "Bad
word3"...and so on.....

2. On the reply page in the share point forums, if the user reply
"Body" or "Subject" contains any of the admin entered bad words, the
admin should recieve an email with subject and body of the thread
reply content in the email body.

3. The admin will be notified over email and he would visit to the
forum for review.

The forums will be not be premoderated so we would not post the reply
for approval instead we would inform the admin over email.

The problem we are facing right now is how or where should the bad
words saved ( content database or business database). If in either
case how can we achieve validating user entered reply content against
the badwords.

In MOSS/WSSv3 you can do this with either an event handler or custom
(Visual Studio 2005 developed including a custom action) workflow.
Where you store the "bad words" is up to you, but for ease of
maintenance, you should consider storing them in a SharePoint list.
