Ok. Surely people must agree that the word filter on this forum is excessive, I can understand certain words for the sake of stopping overzelous parents from having a hissy fit but It's seriously annoying me.

Words such as crack3r and t1t should not be blocked, especially when they block ANY appearance of the world.
I've seen sites that have gone as far as to block the word sex, people who live in Sussex in UK where getting temp blocks for excessive profanity. I don't want the forums goint this way.

When we cant use words like firecrack3r or bluet1t it's getting too bad.

The game has no filter AT ALL! Why is the forum becoming **** germany, all these blocked words need be seriously looked into because guess what... people here don't need protecting from nasty words, they're not that pathetic.

Most of this was supposed to be fixed with the recent forum upgrade. Apparently they failed. Words like cockpit and cracker should now work, but...

The forum word filter will be updated and some words resulting in filtering of words like cockpit or crack will be reviewed. Proper use of multiple definition words will not result in a warning, but improper usage will.

Relax buddy, changes will happen. Petition it if you have a word you think should be allowed

Likely it is in part because some country out there has rather ludicrous standards of what is decent, and an army of lawyers.

More likely that some programmer got paranoid.

Most likely that someone managed to abuse every single one of those relatively harmless words in such a way as to make the rest of us begin dry-heaving. Evil or Very Mad

seeing as the average age in EVE is like 29 or sumthing, maybe ccp should stop acting like this is WoW.

Why would anyone filter the word Gay *Ghey*, its hardly offensive language.

I think.. your jsut trying to keep your mods in with a job, beucase they dont do anything else.

edit: i jsut noticed they guy who is stunned because "arse" isnt filtered; What are you 12?! Your the reason its going to get blocked now.

Well I'm glad that people agree with me that this needs changing. Is there some way we can petition this to CCP or the webmasters in the forums. It's rediculas. I am personally offended that the word g4y is blocked to the point where I have to avoid the filters with leetspeak to even discuss it.

SINCE WHEN DID CCP BECOME MY PARENTS!?

They don't give a flying F*CK about this in game, I sware all the bloody time in game, yet the forum is censored to a rediculas level. People don't have the right to 'not be offended'. The majority of the EVE players are adults, the EVE players that are children need to shut the hell up, the adults are talking...

CCP fix this, it's p*ssing me off, and I want to express that it's p*ssing me off without the use of a damn asterix to protect the children from my mentally damaging words. So much therapy... grow up.

Solution

Very simple, easy solution.

Create an automatic parental filter, which accounts have by default.

This filter censors images and 'bad' words.

In Forums > Settings -- Create an option to enable/disable this parental filter.

So basically the words are not the problem, the people that snigger at legitimate usage are the problem.

It is unreasonable to demand the Mods be able to judge all the offensive words in all of the parent languages we might be using. Therefore they use filtering tools. Sometimes these tools are overzealous in their filtering. That is the price we pay in this age of internet correctness. Perhaps if more people could be more mature in their usage, we wouldn't need these filters.

You are in the wrong business, I can swear all day and even at people, if they are the right ones. More often about people, when they aren't listening, but I digress.

Anyway, pull the large object from your rectum, it seems to be impairing your ability to relax.

Dagda's wrong and you are right... but both for the wrong reasons.

I can talk like "that" in the business world. But I choose not to. What I don't say makes me more powerful.

Likewise, I could swear all day at the right people, the wrong people, people present and people not. I'm in that position. But I don't. When I start swearing, I've already lost. My people know when I'm unsatisfied with their performance. Getting upset about it is fail.
