in reply to Profanity in the CB/Nodes

Frankly, I don't see the big difference between "shit" and "s**t"; everyone knows that s**t means shit, so what's the point? the word is there, so I don't know which is more offending, is it the letters? or the meaning?

And besides, you can never filter text, there will always be a million way to circumvent that:

5hit Sh;t shi+ . . . __ __ __ .-----.| |--.|__| |_ |__ --|| || | _| |_____||__|__||__|____| or even ___ ___ ___ /\ \ /\__\ ___ /\ \ /::\ \ /:/ / /\ \ \:\ \ /:/\ \ \ /:/__/ \:\ \ \:\ \ _\:\~\ \ \ /::\ \ ___ /::\__\ /::\ \ /\ \:\ \ \__\ /:/\:\ /\__\ __/:/\/__/ /:/\:\__\ \:\ \:\ \/__/ \/__\:\/:/ / /\/:/ / /:/ \/__/ \:\ \:\__\ \::/ / \::/__/ /:/ / \:\/:/ / /:/ / \:\__\ \/__/ \::/ / /:/ / \/__/ \/__/ \/__/

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    (didn't log in / read the whole thread, sorry...)

    Not only can people circumvent that, but when whole words are censored out, meaning is lost. I.e. you knew that they swore, but not what they said, which is a pain in the @$$. :)

    Therefore, if we do censor, and someone trips the security, I would prefer that it says, "User: CENSORED" instead of their partial message.

    If we make it site policy to avoid profanity, we could allow admins to ban people from posting in the CB for certain lengths of time (don't we already have this, and call it muzzling or something like that?).

    I've been on PM quite a bit, recently, and I haven't seen any problems with profanity (used occassionally but not too much of a problem). Also, kids hear stuff at school at pretty early ages that matches up to anything here.

      f we make it site policy to avoid profanity, we could allow admins to ban people from posting in the CB for certain lengths of time (don't we already have this, and call it muzzling or something like that?).
      Yes to the former. See the borg's belly.
