Question about extra credit question?

  boolean isValid;
   String words="dork nerd";

   String adjective;
   do 
     {
      System.out.print(" Enter a name :");

      adjective=scan.next();
      System.out.println(name1);
      isValid=adjective.contains(words);
      System.out.println(isValid);

   }while(isValid);

I want to censor user's input.It seems like String contains method doesn't work,since every time i enter one of the censored word still i am getting out of the loop.

You should write

isValid = words.contains(adjective);

Variable isValid tells you, does your String "dork nerd" contains your input or not.
