View Full Version : Censoring swear-words

Currently the board-software automatically censors a list of insults and swear words. Some which in my opinion don't really need to be there like h00ters for example. As discussed here:

http://www.worldaffairsboard.com/world-affairs-board-pub/61443-h00ters-lawsuit-claims-rival-restaurant-stole-trade-secrets.html

some are even in favour of getting rid of the whole list since it is rather easy to bypass it and we are all adults here. Well most of us...most of the time. While I tend to agree with that standpoint there are apparently cultures where a lot of people find such words very offensive and a danger to the public.

So what is the view of the WAB community? Remove some words. All words? Or even increase the list? I would like to gather some feedback of what you all think about this...and then dismiss it and simply do what I want.

H00ters isn't a swear word for one.

Swear words usually tend to have an abrupt ending phonetically speaking. I believe this is how you can tell when they swear at you in foreign languages too.

I think this is take it on a word by word basis. Nouns may be safer than verbs which are in turn safer than adjectives.

I don't see h00ters as a swear word - perhaps impolite - like fart or butt ...
For the most part I don't think the list needs to change much, IMHO it is ok the way it is, swearing rarely improves a discussion and it can be "hidden" with clever lettering if it is really wanted in a post and adds needed emotion or emphasis. I don't think more of it would be a good thing, but it seems silly to be oversensitive to it if it happens occasionally.

I am actually for a list. Even though some words get mixed up that aren't supposed to be there like h00ters. If that's the case, all you have to do is re-edit your post, and change it to an appropriate word. IMHO, that would be better then actually reading other obscene words. Although up until now, I do not think much of WAB use said words. I for one though, would think if said words did became excessive, it would ruin the quality of discussion. After all what thought goes into F this. That is "S"..etc etc. It's not that it's offensive, which others may be, it's just that it isn't provoking thought, effort, and degrades it.

I am for the list as it stands. It would be good if it could be modified, and some words taken out. If not, then I am still for the filter.

We're adults here who cares if someone swears. As long as it's not used to insult members which we know is against the rules anyway.

The swear filter is a bit ****ed anyway.

Scrap the filters but make it clear that adult behaviour is expected (we already sorta do that anyway). If people are getting to the point of being offensive warn them. Censoring software, especially US-based versions, usually veer heavily toward silly. They add little to adult discussion boards.

maybe I should clarify that the way the censor works we can decide exactly which words are on the list and which not. Also if certain words are removed from the list does not mean that is acceptable to use them to insult others.

Cool. I can think of maybe one or two words to put on the list. I suspect most of us would agree on what those are.

Stop this. Lenny Bruce and George Carlin object. It's apparent to most when somebody is acting well below their age and intentionally being crass and crude. There are times, however, when these words are a legitimate expression of one's vehement anger and disgust (among other emotions) that are too-often otherwise difficult to convey through the printed word.

I think we should remove the whole list and add auto-correct for the same words AND for the abbrevs :Dancing-Banana:

Seems to me, *******, is a word that was invented to replace another more offending word. So where do you stop?

I haven't seen the 'censored words list' but I can't imagine it being more than about 10 words (not including their foreign language equivilants).

Now spell check would be a nice feature to add. :)

What do you mean it's not on Google Chrome? I use Chrome and it has Spell Check.

From their help page


Adjust spell-checker settings

Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux).
Click the Under the Hood tab.
In the "Web Content" section, click Languages and spell-checker settings.
In the Languages and Input dialog that appears, use the "Enable spell checking" checkbox to turn the spell-checker on or off


I have no idea WTF happened with the quoting in that post :confused:

I'm definitely with the end it brigade - it's just pointless like. We all know what the words being used are, cussing is a perfectly acceptable form of communication in many instances where it's fully warranted and on top of that if you're worried about kids they'll tell you waaay worse than anything on the list. We ARE all adults so it should be a case of Amish style community shunning - if someone wants to make a fool out of themselves with curses let them, they reflect on themselves far worse than a filter. If I want to call you a D1ck you either are or aren't, but that's a valid discussion to be had......many of you are:biggrin:. Censorship is never the answer.

Me! I approve of polite and civil discussion and not every other being four letters! I very rarely swear in real life and never when trying to argue a point, to which it is not an aid but a hindrance. I don't appreciate bad langauage... even when I ran a online game 'guild' I forbade it. In general it fosters a more respectful and civil discourse to keep bad langauge out.

The members of WAB can moderate their language quite easily and efficiently. How much profanity do you see, and how much of that do you think is due to the censor? Case in point, when's the last time you saw someone here try and use the word h00ters? More importantly, when someone goes on a rant and types out "what the fcuk" or "what the fvck", do you think they're kidding anyone?

Let's be mature about this, we're all (mostly) big kids here

Tarek Morgen
03 Oct 11,, 15:57
After looking at the feedback most of the words have been removed from the filter, with a few exceptions (some of them spam related ). It is now possible to use words like Hooters or furburger without the filter kicking in. That said, this is not a free ticket to start throwing insults around (not even at Yellowbelly), and please don't start spamming swear words simply to find out which one are "freed". The Forum rules will still be enforced, and the whole thing is one a trial basis. If the results are not to our liking we'll simply reverse it.

Yeah but you were just piggybacking off of Rusty's "yeller" so you don't get credit.

And if my memory serves me, it was either the Texas sheep seducer or the Kiwi sheep seducer who first called me that soon after Rusty dropped that moniker.

As usual, you're trying take credit for someone else's work.....like tankie does in the joke thread.

Thankyou, Tarek, for that well deserved time off without pay.

As I was going through life, contemplating my world without WAB, I have reached a conclusion vis-a-vis the public transportation system here in L.A.

What the hell is with these extended MTA buses in L.A.????

At least in London, they got those ugly double deckers. It's ugly but they don't take up much space.

But, nooooo...in L.A. they have to have these ugly buses that also take up alot of space so they create traffic jams left and right.

And the messed up thing is there are always less than 10 people in it. :mad:

So in conclusion, not only is there a vast conspiracy of Germans, Israelis and Macedonians against law abiding American citizens, the buses in L.A. are also ugly and get in the way...

Thankyou, Obama!

Oi now. Germans gave us things like the Autobahn to be jealous of, some of the best beer to be had anywhere, and some pretty hot looking women too (especially when you put them in leather or latex ;) Not to mention Streudel, as well as Brats to grill on a summer day and enjoy with sourkraut and that same cold beer. I think I could overlook something like 'a sense of humor much differing from ours' for all those other benefits. (and I haven't even dipped into their engineering yet...)
