Warning for certain words mod?

I'd like a modification that warns people when they're about to post a potentially inappropriate word.

Instead of submitting their post, after they click "Post reply" or "submit new thread", a page comes up saying why the word is generally unacceptable, and asks them to confirm if they really want to post it.

Most of these come from words that I generally find unacceptable (gay, retard, stfu, penis, porn), but don't want to completely censor since the words have some legitimate use. I'm aware I can manually moderate messages that are inappropriate, or post it in a document with the rules, but I feel this would be an easier and more targeted way to raise awareness about the rules, as well as eliminating any excuses like "I didn't read that part of the rules".

Is there any modification to do something like this?

Not that I know of and it's a good idea for a mod, but this should be posted in one of the Mod Requests forums. To find a volunteer try here:
Otherwise if you're willing to pay there is a forum for paid requests which is far more likely to get someone to help you, for a price.

That's a fantastic idea for a mod, if you do get it made, be sure to release it!
