    n&7o&7ob
    n&7ewbie
    newb&7ie
    n&7ewb&7ie
    n&6oob
    no&6ob
    n&6o&6ob
    n&6ewbie
    newb&6ie
    n&6ewb&6ie
    etc.. etc.. they can't just block every single color/letter combination of words.. simply not possible

    Normally, the term noob is used in a derogatory way. Newbie is less harsh.

    Actually they can if
    ChatColor.stripColor(string value).equalsIgnoreCase("noob") == true

    The real issue is when a person types n0ob (with a zero) or n0.o0b etc because you change the actual spelling of the word.

    If you are a donator you can typ every word: with the code hac&7ks for example, so i think it is to much work to ban all the words...
