what do you think should be censored and what shouldn't.

definitely not censored:
fuck
cock

should still be censored:
faggot
whore
cunt
retard
nigger (nigga remains uncensored)

should be censored from now on:
fag
slut
bitch

what are your thoughts? if your thoughts are "lol nothing should be censored freddom 1984" then you should play the game right or not post at all.

Well I don't cuss nor am I offended by it, so it doesn't bother me. Though it's kind of retarded how retard is censored.

I'm not a fan of word filters in-general. If people want to be stupid idiots and assholes, fine. It's the internet, they can't follow you or send you messages you can't just delete.

I don't think anything should be censored except racial epithets.

EDIT: Also, bitch being censored would just make me more likely to say cunt. As long as I have to bypass the filter for something might as well make it a good one.

I've always found censoring certain words on forums pointless. It's so easy to get around the censors it makes them completely useless.

But what about the breaking bad thread? at least a third of it would become incoherent. I guess most of it already is tho.

Upon reconsideration, I think "Eastwinn" should be censored. I get so upset every time I see that.

Want a fag?

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

I think it should all be like nigga where only girls are allowed to say bitch and cunt and only guys are allowed to say dick and prick.

I'd like to take this moment to point out how retarded it is that the only words in this post that are censored are cunt and retarded. Double standards all up in this retard cunt.

there's actually a forum function for that.

if you want to refer to a cigarette as a fag you can always bypass the censor. the point is to make it annoying for people to use words that we (i) deem unacceptable.

also (i) looks a tad like a vulva

is this your outing thread?


fag



faggot is though. anyway, fag is a legit word to describe people who smoke in your face.


patriarch should be added.

fag is a legit word that can be used legitimately by bypassing the censor if you can't go without it. 90% of the time it is used as a homophobic slur and i'd like to make life harder for those who use it that way.

your insult at the end is appreciated, and no i've come out as bisexual to this forum on a previous occasion.
#29
oh okay.


it's only fair seeing as I pushed for retard to go because it was offensive to brits, and fag is offensive outside of britain.


I'm not getting why fuck would be removed though?

How is retard only offensive in Britain? Doesn't it have the same meaning everywhere?


Also, this thread just shows how stupid these censors are since every person has bypassed them in this thread

Quote by WhiskeyFace
Regardless what anyone thinks of the offensiveness of the words, none of them should be censored simply because they can be bi-passed easily anyway.
Yeah this really. Freedom of speech means you can say what you want, but the mods - and to a lesser extent the "public" - can react to it on here how they please.

That said censoring "bitch", "******" etc on a forum at least wouldn't bother me all that much.

well, somewhere along the way it went from 'not being politically correct' to 'quite offensive'

I think it was parents/teachers telling us as kids to not call disabled or anyone with learning disabilities it, because it was rude and un-pc and (speaking from my experience) we were told in such a stern manner that we assumed it was tremendously offensive. I'm betting it was probably driven by some charity or govt group making a clear decision to get everyone to use a more polite term.

I don't particularly see why any words should be censored. You have to be over 13 to use UG, and at 13 kids already know and use all of those words casually anyway. I doesn't add anything to have censors particularly.

And given how easy it is to get around the censors using formatting or images, what's even the point?

the problem with retard is that it's a slur. that's the problem i have with every word i listed to be censored and stay censored. we're all adults here, we can handle "naughty" words like fuck but we shouldn't be okay with people handing out slurs.

obviously people can bypass the censor. this is necessary anyway for threads like this, otherwise you guys would have no clue what i'm talking about. what i want to do is make it harder for people to use slurs. i know some people will just bypass them, and i'll berate them for it. but if fag was censored, maybe pat wouldn't use 10 times in every post. maybe he'd bring it down to 1 or 2.

Bitch isn't rooted in misogyny, so I can take or leave it.


I don't think any word should be censored, I just think you're an absolute idiot if you stoop to homophobic or racial slurs.

It's only a slur if it's directed at someone with a mental disability. If I say 'current Tory policy is ******ed' then it's not a slur, and if I said 'current Tory policy has ******ed the progress of civil liberties' then it would be an entirely separate and 'clean' use of the word.

i agree on the second point. if someone wants to use retard in that sense then they can bypass the censor like i just did.

on the first point: "current Tory policy is retarded" uses the name of a group of people in a vastly negative sense. that's unacceptable. it is exactly likable to saying "current Tory policy is gay".

Using retarded or gay to describe something is like calling a blonde Norwegian a nigger. It's so out of context that it loses all offensive meaning.

It's become rooted in it through modern colloquial language.
