About Sift Ninja: Content Moderation and Filtering

Sift Ninja is an API that integrates with chat, comments, gaming, and other social applications, and analyzes and filters text based on certain risk levels, and can then auto-moderate, hash out profane words, or mark as NSFW, all fully customizable.

The Sift Ninja block lets you build this functionality into your PubNub Data Streams, allowing you to monitor and filter unmoderated content as the data is streamed. For example, if you have a chat app or a public forum, you can automatically moderate and filter published messages before it reaches end users.
