welcome to the wrold of &quot;politicaly correct&quot; the staff that hosts TLR need the censors in place so they dont get in trouble from those type of peole who look for any reason to ruin the fun and enjoyment of others. So look at the language censor as a safety blanket from those @$$($%&amp; who have their fun at the expence of others. Blessed Be to all those that still dream of the flight to the stars. quote &quot; going to my Happy Place would do me no good it is full of blood, carnage, and destruction&quot; :ME <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

A censer is needed. It prevent the slip word from getting out. Adults, those my age and all, have heard just about every word under the sun and then some. But, that does not mean they are proper for public conversation. The abriveated are indeed as bad as the full spell out ones. You should ask why they are needed. Someone once asked me one day, why i use that language. I thought for a moment, and it occured it was more from habit than anything else. I do not need those words or phrases to get said what I want said. Wether angry, happy sad or just plain tired, there are plenty of words that can be used to spell it out without the need for cursing. This is after all, a family site, and if I had kids, I would not want then exposed to that kind of language, as I have seen on other forums. To take down a censer just becase it seems to do no good, but it does, will only incurage that type of talk, not diswade it. The &quot;Shortcuts&quot; only show people need to think what they write before they write it. You can express yourself with out the need for cursing a blue streak. If you can´t, then you need to go back to school and learn some new words. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Till then, a censer is needed to help curtail it a bit. My 2 cents worth. <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

while we´re on the subject - are you aware that the TLR auto-censor doesn´t spot <b>the </b> word that is considered by many to be the &quot;most offensive&quot; swear word in the british language?? (and no taw, I don´t mean &quot;work&quot;....well, not unless &quot;work&quot; suddenly rhymes with &quot;punt&quot;, &quot;stunt&quot; and &quot;hunt&quot; anyway...enough hints?! <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> ) I´m not trying to encourage the use of it here, I´m merely pointing out that it needs fixing.

Would anyone really pull such a stunt? <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> I´m in favor of a revised or fixed auto-censor. Because it makes people who post try to use the English language more completely. People who use swear words in their day-to-day conversation tend to get very lazy and sloppy in their language. It makes it more annoying for everyone else to follow what they are trying to say and to figure out whether what they are saying is of any worth. Contrary to the &quot;emphatic&quot; value that most people think swear words can add to what one has to say, it tends to take away from what the poster is trying to say. Of course, if we are talking about flaming ... which is <i>verboten </i> here, it is a different story. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

Like the word that starts with a &quot;j&quot; and ends with a &quot;erk&quot;. That one is a commonly used one in common language as the description of tug or pull, and even in it´s &quot;offensive&quot; form it really isn´t that bad.

I dunno about y´all, but I think that you can write plenty of fiction where a guy swears without swearing. And quite frankly, I hate reading lame posts from kiddies who think they´re not being properly 1337 if they don´t sound like a punk getting drunk while sampling crunk. Yes, that was lame. At any rate, I swear incessantly IRL, but I try to avoid it in most of my correspondence with people online, just as I avoid it when speaking to people in a professional conversation. Why? Because: 1. I don´t really know who´s reading this. 2. No, I mean it- I really don´t know who reads this. 3. Even the people I &quot;know&quot; here may or may not be offended even if I´m not cursing, so why add that? 4. I can insult people plenty well without using swear words. That´s right- I´m talking to YOU, puffy. Doritos are not, repeat, NOT a food group. And no, I do not think your girlfriend is cute, nor am I impressed with your weird Japanese car with extra plastic bits. Please, do not show me photos of your psychotic pets, lame apartments with trite appointments, or other standard fare of the bored and lonely, k? I have a LIFE. <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

Yay! I love having to wade through the childish overuse of swear words on forums... just because people can. Give people the opportunity, and that is exactly what you get - excessive use of swear words, especially when people want to insult others. I can imagine the posts now, all those clans, server operators, banned players etc etc... You may not get insulted - but the forum isn´t just for you...

A censor helps to try to keep things civilized. Also, as a few others have said, it makes the individual think and use other appropriate words instead of using a ´shortcut´. Yes I realize people here it all the time in RL, but I guess you have to say change starts somewhere..lol The way I see it, poor grammer is the sign of a mind that does not think. I like people that think thier way through things, not just blurt out whatever comes to mind. Shoot first, shoot straight, win always.

I have seen this thread jotter up and down, but up till now, I haven´t seen the actual &quot;legal&quot; reason the swearfilter is in place.. the swearfilter, is for the seal of approval for the site from the ICRA counsil, next to the moral reasons for having it on a mainstream forum, it just looks bad seeing tons of little blighters scream and swear away, however limited the vocabulary may be, it is very hinderfull, and cetainly doesn´t make a site´s community look any better, a swearfilter isn´t needed if youve got a private forum of your own, where everyone knows everyone. Killa, if you want your story unhindered by a swearfilter, write it up, and offer it to people on demand, that way they can have the unfiltered version of the story, and you won´t have to work your way around a swearfilter. I hope this clears the matter up??

i can see the point in both sides, personally i don´t care what people say but that´s me some people are offended when you look at them (i´ve been there) because they think there better i guess, some you can do or show almost anything to them and they won´t say a word, some are too easily offended in my opinion, like that deal with a comic in the work place i don´t remember the name but it caused a huge uproar and it was banned from public places, i´m down to earth when it comes to that, those words and most other things don´t phase me i´m 19 i´ve seen and heared just about all the &quot;foul words&quot; they are meaningless to me. most of the time a person is more likly to make me mad then to offend me. i just tell people to chill out when they make a case most do some keep squawking and i walk off because i don´t want to hear them it´s no big deal <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>
