I did a post the other day that included a screen shot, this was obtained by using "CTRL V "and pasing image to message.

I got this message on posing it

I am 100% sure I used no swear words.

Can you throw some light on this.

Happens sometimes depending what character strings the checker finds in the image file.

You are better off uploading it to your profile then embedding the image.

Images that are inline when posting are converted to a special format. This format can have any combination of strings - sometimes lucky is that it will have a combination that is an English word - including those. 

Best option is to upload to your profile and use the codes provided in the gallery.
