Whitelist functionality for text filtering

As a Roblox developer, it is currently impossible to apply a whitelist of words to Roblox’s text filtering.

Many games have certain words applying within them that are filtered in Roblox. An example of this is shown in this post.
As another example, a year or two ago when I was clanning, some group names were filtered in chat - while this was annoying on the website, it had the most effect in-game.

If Roblox is able to address your issue, how would it improve your game and/or your development experience? Please be as specific as possible.

Adding some sort of solution to this will allow people to use words and abbreviations that are relevant to the game instead of having to find and/or implement complex workarounds.
