I finished the challenge but it still says i haven't

Main.java :

package com.teamtreehouse;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.List;

public class Main {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Prompter prompter = new Prompter();
        Template tmpl = new Template(prompter.promptForStory());
        List<String> validWords = prompter.run(tmpl);
        String results = tmpl.render(validWords);
        System.out.printf("Your TreeStory:%n%n%s", results);

    }
}

Prompter.java :

public class Prompter {
    private BufferedReader mReader;
    private Set<String> mCensoredWords;

    public Prompter() {
        mReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
        loadCensoredWords();
    }

    private void loadCensoredWords() {
        mCensoredWords = new HashSet<String>();
        Path file = Paths.get("resources", "censored_words.txt");
        List<String> words = null;
        try {
            words = Files.readAllLines(file);
        } catch (IOException e) {
            System.out.println("Couldn't load censored words");
            e.printStackTrace();
        }
        mCensoredWords.addAll(words);
    }

    public List<String> run(Template tmpl) {
        List<String> results = null;
        try {
            results = promptForWords(tmpl);
        } catch (IOException e) {
            System.out.println("There was a problem prompting for words");
            e.printStackTrace();
            System.exit(0);
        }
        return results;
    }

    public List<String> promptForWords(Template tmpl) throws IOException {
        List<String> words = new ArrayList<String>();
        for (String phrase : tmpl.getPlaceHolders()) {
            String word = promptForWord(phrase);
            words.add(word);
        }
        return words;
    }

    public String promptForWord(String phrase) throws IOException{
        boolean isCensoredWord;
        String word;
        do {
            System.out.printf("Enter %s : ", phrase);
            word = mReader.readLine();
            isCensoredWord = mCensoredWords.contains(word);
            if(isCensoredWord) {
                System.out.printf("%s is not allowed. Please try again. \n", word);
            }
        } while(isCensoredWord);
        return word;
    }

    public String promptForStory() {
        String story = "";
        try {
            System.out.print("Enter a story template :  ");
            story = mReader.readLine();
        } catch (IOException ioe) {
            System.out.println("Error with your input..");
            ioe.printStackTrace();
        }
        return story;
    }
}

So the code works properly and even censors the specified word but i am getting this error while submitting the code Bummer: Whoops looks like you didn't censor the words (2a). mCensoredWords contains 'dork', but it made it past somehow.

And It does censors dork.

I am getting the same error as you, saying dork made it past even though dork does not make it past when i run my code. It's a bug by treehouse IMO

I tried your code and it doesn't work for me either. And I even tested it in Intellij and It works perfectly...

I really hope someone answers this question so I can complete this course...

System.out.printf("%s is not allowed. Please try again. \n", word);

the error is thrown because of this line. You are displaying the word that should be censored, if you make this more generic then the error goes away,

System.out.prinln(" That word is not allowed. Please try again.");

What if the user input a censored word with a capital letter in it?
