Ok, I'll guess I'll have to whip up the user-based censor system then. :rolleyes:

Come on, people. We seriously don't want to ban you, don't make us do it.
Probably away. Contact through email.

On a related tangent: What's the point in a censor? I mean, the only thing which could be considered offensive about a word is the images which is conveys upon reading. By replacing offending words with those ickle star thingies you are merely causing their minds to conjure up a multitude of various profanities in an effort to find a word which fits. So the only real difference is the reader sees the word with their mind instead of their mind and eyes and that they can't read as fast.

Pour example: I'm gonna **** your **** with a spikey stick then **** you in the *** with Mike's *****.

See. Pointless. I know you'll disagree, but I'm still right.

I quite agree - which is why I am coming before you all with the issue as opposed to simply putting the word filter back in.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences.

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I take it you won't bother censoring every fricking curse word? Coz that'd take sugaring ages and be pretty frellin hard to do. It'd also make things incredibly frelling hezmada whilst trying to quote Far-buggary-Scape or call something the illegitemate produce of two entities.

But I suppose if you wanna waste your time............


Also, I feel this will only serve to make the boards gayer in that we'll end up using terms like "Shippy" instead of "Rough, hard, sex" as has happened with just about every crapping Stargate board on the internet.

So, if asking use nicely doesn't work, you'll ban the offenders then make things worse?

see i say that OCCASIONALLY it's ok to use a bad word... not acceptable, but not as bad as using it in every sentence, like you do.  if you force them to use the filter, then no one will be able to use bad words...  don't ruin it for all of us

Actually, now that I've gone over what triggered this off in the first place, I should clarify: It's not so much the curse words as the descriptive dirty phrases that bother me - I understand the (immature) need to express oneself with a good hearty "HOLY ****" here and there, but I WILL NOT tolerate things such as describing what kind of excrement you'd like to dump into whoever's mother's open mouth. Got it?

I don't remember doing that.

Also: Oooh, he's changed the lightcolor of the horizontal-rule. Very nifty, and also, colour co-ordinated.

Didn't say it was you. I was simply clarifying what exactly it was that bothered me.

And yeah, that was me - couldn't stand that plain-Jane horizontal rule thing any more. :p

In that case I suppose that nobody would understand what you are saying, so it wouldn't really matter. :D

So when we wish to empahsise a point and berate someone, instead of saying:  
"I'm gonna **** your *** in the ****** every *** night until she ****s in my**** because you're a biggotted ********* who should have a **** ***'d up his *****"

We'd have to say thing like:
"I whole-heartedly disagree with your reasoning and wish to make it know to the general population that the manner in which you dress is somewhat reminiscent of a male prostitute"

???
