    Question word filter help

    Hey guys, I want to make this script display a list of the bad words that come up in the alert box rather than simply displaying how many bad words there are. So if the word bloody is typed I want it to show that in the alert box along with any other curse words. Can someone help me out?

    <script type="text/javascript">
    badWords = ['sod you', 'bollocks', 'bloody'];
    function check (f) {
    	if (!/\S/.test (f.elements.message.value)) {alert ('Please, a message is required.'); return false};
    if (!/\S/.test (f.elements.title.value)) {alert ('Please, a message is required.'); return false};
    	var count = 0,  i = 0, pattern, word;
    	while (word = badWords[i++]) {
    		pattern = new RegExp ('\\b' + word + '\\b', 'gi');
    		while (pattern.test(f.elements.message.value)) {count++}
    	if (count) {
    		alert ('Shame on you.  You have used bad words ' + count + ' times.')
    		return false;

    This should clean things up so to speak. Hopefully will point you in the direction you are looking for.

    	var bad = ["bloody", "sod"];
    	var rExp = new RegExp("("+bad.join("|")+")", "ig");
    	if(rExp.test(s)) {
    		alert("bad word used: "+RegExp.$1);
    window.onload = function() {
    	var str = "hello sodding world";
    Hope this helps
