I know we've talked about this before.

 

I also know that even if we 100% voted yes (which won't happen) they probably still wouldn't remove it.

 

But meh.

 

With the world in the state it's currently in I find it very unsatisfactory to use mild language.

 

I mean, the little asterisks are fooling nobody anyway.

 

So, what do you reckon?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Note: This is intended to be a frivolous waste of time, not some kind of "glue myself to a forum page until I starve" protest.

What’s with the huge thing?

 

Is it so you can’t say huge dicks or something else?

Considering I said to the kids today that I wanted to "run away to ****ing Siberia" then yes, we shouldn't be censored.

 

In terms of people who would use swear words as every second word or use (what I call offensive or hurtful) words - then I would simply block that person.

I rarely swear out loud (However my internal monologue has a potty mouth for some reason) and I think the swear filter is ridiculous.

Now that IS funny, it's ok as long as you refer to a bag of them, not ok if it's only the one.

Well a bag of them is safer. A whole bag of dicks is unlikely to be attached to anyone and therefore less likely to be harmful. One d*ck is usually attached to a man.

I generally won't swear in real life nor on here (maybe use the 'softer' swearI words) but i am not against swearing but if a post has every second word as a swear word i will not read it.

 

Some swearing no problem at all

I don’t see anything wrong with swearing if used appropriately. Somethings are just so sh*t there is no other words to describe them.

Whoever has a whole bag of them has done a lot of emasculating. Or is there an actual medical term? Penidectomy?

Most words I wouldn't care about reading. I do draw the line at the 'c' word, that makes me cringe.

I used to be in favour of the swear filter and think I would still like it a bit ... but it’s a ridiculous filter which encompasses too many words. I’ve also moved on to a place where I don’t care if there is a swear filter.

**** yeah!

 

I mean, did anyone read what I just wrote in any way other than with the swear word itself?

 

Serves zero purpose. The brain is capable of filling in the blanks.
