Comments containing the term will not appear on your Pin, though words or phrases containing the term will continue to appear in comments. If you’d like to block specific words or phrases, use commas between each term to add each specific use case to the filter.

    For example, if you create a filter for the term 'apple pie', any comment containing the exact phase will be blocked. In this case, 'I like apple pie' or 'apple pie' would be blocked. Any modified use of the word or phrase will not be blocked. In this case, 'apple' or 'apple pies are yummy' would not be blocked.
