printing a redacted word in an if loop

29 New Member
My code won't print "REDACTED" in place of the redact variable. I do not know why though. Can anyone shed some light? I appreciate it! Here is my code :

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. puts "Whats your input brah?"
  2. text = gets.chomp
  3. puts "Whatchu are you hiding bro?"
  4. redact = gets.chomp
  5. words = text.split(" ")
  6. words.each {|x| if x == redact print "REDACTED"+" " else print x+" "}

This code definitely works if I use "do" instead of the curly braces. I tested it. The tutorial I am using said that those two are the same thing and can be used inter-changably but as I found, it doesn't work when I use curly brackets. Unless I am missing something important.

However, in Word 2007, this watermark is printed and I can't figure out how to turn it off without actually removing it (which is not what I want). How do I tell Word 2007 not to print the displayed watermark?
