Remove filters for non-slurs


Recommended Posts

This does literally nothing good for the board. All it does is force people to come up with the dumbest possible "replacement" curse words in their place. Go into any given forum or thread and you'll see countless instances of people typing things like "$hit" "@$$" "ayuss" "beeyotch" and other stupid work-arounds to get past the completely unnecessary censors on this forum. Frankly there's just no point to it. Any kids who go on this message board will be on tons of other boards being "exposed" to language that isn't necessarily parent-approved, it just doesn't matter at this point. All these censors do is mildly inconvenience people who want to speak their mind freely. There are also even more subtle work arounds like stretching a word out ("fffffuuuuuuuuck", "biiiiiiiiiiitch", etc) or adding a bold letter to the word ("shit", "ass", etc) that really do just make the word filters used on this forum completely pointless. Just remove them and let the people in here speak freely without having to figure out dumb ways to get around the unnecessary censorship.
