The behaviour of these functions is affected by settings in php.ini.

Here's a short explanation of the configuration directives.

filter.default sets the default FILTER by name.
filter.default_flags sets default FLAGS for the default filter.

The values for filter.default should be a string "name" of a valid FILTER: 

"int"      FILTER_VALIDATE_INT
"boolean"  FILTER_VALIDATE_BOOLEAN        

The irony of the entire list I typed being blocked by the SPAM filter is not lost on me.  Perhaps I'm not the first.
