Swear Filter
« on: 2011-04-08 17:34:20 »
Thinking about a previous conversation about the swear filter got me thinking. Perhaps some people are right and the swear filter is somewhat pointless. But instead of turning it off outright I have made it so people can turn off the filter in their own profiles. The filter will still be enabled by default.

Side Note: Massive vulgarity, racism, etc still not allowed.

fern, go have fun!

What could? This was just to inform people that they could turn off the filter if they wish.

Define "massive vulgarity". It sounds quite subjective to me.

Sorry, I meant to say

What the cunting fern strawberries is massive vulgarity?

What the female genitaliaing f*ck sh*t is massive vulgarity?

I guess what I meant to say is lots of swearing directed at a person. eg (Kudistos you ferning cocksucker why dont you go eat strawberries and die!) That sort of thing. The following was just an example, kudistos should not go eat strawberries. I hear it tastes bad.

But that's already covered by rules on general abuse and flaming, n'est-ce pas?

General concensus. Everyone seems to thing sh*t tastes bad so I am assuming it does. 'Tastes like sh*t' would have not come to be a popular saying if sh*t did not taste bad.

But that's already covered by rules on general abuse and flaming, n'est-ce pas?

Hence the still not allowed.

To elaborate on the rules: swearing is a little like smilies. Add them when you feel they emphasise a point, or add something to your post. But if you overuse strings of them, your posts are disruptive, and will be treated as such.

It is, and it has to be. There's no cast iron rule that says 'X vulgar words across Y sentences makes for excess' - it all depends on context, and posts need to be judged on a one by one basis. Yes, that means that if you choose to swear, you court a theoretical risk that your 'harmless outburst' gets moderated. But it's either this, G-rated threads or a free-for-all.

Yes, I don't like swearing. It sets a hostile tone, and can make people not wan't to open up to you if you start swearing all over the place. Though I can see why people do it...I just don't agree  :-[.

Though lately I have been using pretty questionable short hand!!! Like: LMAO and over use of the word "damn". Although tame to some it is not my style, I think its rubbing off from you guys :P, Personally I blame Dan! LOL

Massive vulgarity
Isn't that basically this entire thread?

I personally swear a whole lot! I can't stop swearing! I swear for breakfast, lunch, and dinner ;)

I agree with Mako's point. I have seen situations on here where people are angrily posting at others, and have censored words in their posts. I wonder if that will seem more insulting with the censors off. Guess everyone has thick enough skin to handle it.

Explicit or not, anything I judge as 'abuse' in Completely Unrelated will be dealt with accordingly.

Now is also a good time to explain that I don't like people using 'gay' to mean 'lame, effeminate, silly'. I prefer it if people don't do it.

I don't like that usage, but not for any reasons of offense, but simply because it's stupid and confusing. It can lead to misunderstandings when used in this form: if you call a person "gay" meaning anything but homosexual, somebody's gonna misinterpret it for sure. Clarity is always a good thing in written language.

ex:
"president bush is gay"
"what? He's happily married"
"no, i just meant he's a bad president"

and then the first person comes across sounding like an idiot.

As for this thread being "Massive vulgarity", since it's in completely unrelated and being confined to this thread I strongly doubt anybody's gonna have a problem with it. It's not like anybody's cursing out Aali in his custom driver thread for not having a new release soon enough or anything.
