Scanning text before posting

So I want to do the following:

Before a post is being posted (like before an "article" in the confluence is being published), I want to scan the post's actual text.

For example, to scan it and check if it contains certain words (i.e curse words and like so).

How should I approach the problem?

A confluence plugin?

How do I get it to get executed before the post is published?


I am using Confluence 5.4.3


Thank you in advance!

Sounds like you're looking for WTFilter

To be honest the use of it is not to filter such words,

it's more like:

Beofre an article is being published, I want to scan the text and compare the words inside it to a list I own, and if I find matches I want to add certain labels to the "article".

Do you know of such Filter/Plugin? 

If there isn't one that exists, how do I write one?

I mean, how do I approach it?
