Of course it should be optional.
Not only does EVE have an international customer base, the very definition of profanity changes so quickly that the overhead in maintaining an effective filter is not worth it.
Therefore, any profanity filter ia going to be just a gesture for those that want such a thing - for whatever reason. Those who want to be free of such a gesture, or are just confused by it should be able to choose not to make it.

And anyone who allows himself to go ballistic at someone using bad language in an internet spaceships game should go and do an anti-aggression-training.

Oh yes. I mean for ****s sake, why the hell can't I listen to some god damn nasty piece of ****ty swearing if I ****ing want to? In some cases it's even bloody hilarious stuff, and it gets a reall *******ing because the ****ing profanity dumbass filter just ****s it up. And I'm like, oh for for ****s sake goddamn kocksucking ****uckling word filter screwed up the whole goddamn jokeEvil or Very Mad

Anyways, now that I got that off my chest, I'm very much in favour of this idea. Thank you. And sorry for all the profanity, it's just one of those things that has been bothering me for a while.

While I don't necessarily disagree with this idea, let me explain to you why it will never happen. I'm going to use an example.

Day 1: CCP turns off the profanity filter on the forum.
Day 1.5: Little Johnny, intrepid little 15 year old asks his mom "What's a ****tard?"
Day 2.5: After her apoplectic fit, mom does what she's best at - tells everyone she knows that CCP is bunch of child hating perverts.
Day 4: Little Johnny is on Oprah explaining how his self esteem is damaged and he can no longer be a normal person.
Day 6: Lawsuit is filed.
Day 9: Every liberal, conservative, and religious organization in the Western Hemisphere goes on the warpath against EvE Online. and CCP "because of the children".
Day 15: In the resulting media frenzy, CCP pulls the plug on the forums completely.

So if you really want to be the reason we have no forums at all, please support this proposal.

Also, I'm frankly surprised we don't have a profanity filter in the in game chat.

Little Johnny can suck my ****in ****.

It's his mums stupid fault for disabling the default (and optional) profanity filter.
