Whats wrong with this filter? Censoring words


My code is something like this :

String name = console.readLine("Enter a name:  ");
String adjective = console.readLine("Enter an adjective:  ");
String noun;

do {
   noun = console.readLine("Enter a noun:  ");

  if (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("Dork") || 
        console.printf("That Language is not allowed, Try Again \n\n");

   }while (noun.equalsIgnoreCase("Dork") || noun.equalsIgnoreCase("Jerk"));
String adverb = console.readLine("Enter an adverb:  ");
String verb = console.readLine("Enter a verb ending with -ing:  ");

The thing is that if you write a word that is not "Dork" or "Jerk" the console.printf shows up anyway.

Hey Mariano,

It looks like you've put an additional semicolon on the end of your if statement, if you remove this, the challenge should pass.

Let me know if you run into any more issues :)
