Filtering swearwords

Postby Extreme Ways on Tue May 31, 2016 4:10 am

Why can't I type f\uck without it correcting itself to f*ck. When was this change implemented? I haven't checked on forums yet, but this happens when I write on walls at least.

Edit also happens here.
mfw f uck gets changed to f*ck but "fucking" or "fucker" is still allowed, as well as a lot of other stuff. Dunno what CC is trying to accomplish with this.

Been this way since they went all soft and cuddly, hand holding type crap years ago.. Yes on a simulated war gaming site.

We are fighting to get it changed back to how it should be, the battle continues. ;)

It does seem rather silly to filter f*ck and not filter a lot of other terms that are more extreme.

It's like somebody started setting up the filter, than decided it was too much work and gave up, but left it installed.

Lets preface this by stating cultures can differ a lot and this applies to the Netherlands, but possibly not for the rest of the world.

Youngsters, depending on how young they are, dont give a shit about swearwords. Unless you mean children, we should be fine here. Now I do admit I joined myself at the age of 10 and I don't think I swore that often, but youngsters probably swear enough already and CC won't change any of it in a positive or negative way.

Which has always been why I have argued this.. we filter part of the website, but not all..

The forums are important yet in the past have been the heaviest censored and disciplined

I think Twill originally did it as test, though I can't quite remember for sure and could be misremembering. I know I left it in place because I like the humor of having one word only partially censored by the software. :D

Why don't deploy it to a test environment then? I don't mean to be attacking, but it seems silly to test something on live.

I can't say for sure. It was like a decade ago. I know there was a test forum that various things were tested on, but this sort of change probably seemed of little impact, so it was done on the live version.
