    Default Language Filter

    What's the point of having a language filter on this forum?

    I mean, seriously guys.

    I get keyed for foul language that I expect the chat filter to catch since obviously you don't want people to see it. Fine. The chat filter picked it up. Then you turn around and nail me for it.

    If you're gonna nail people for profanity, then don't have a profanity filter. You shouldn't be using it as a mousetrap to catch your mice just so you can kill them yourselves.

    I mean, I try to be nice and give you guys some recognition, ya know? You've gone through all the trouble of setting up a chat filter, and I try to consider that you might feel neglected if you don't see it in action, yeah?

    And if it's language the filter didn't pick up, then... well. That's your fault. Don't blame me for your shoddy chat filter

    I mean, seriously. The left and the right hand should really consider some kind of organization in their methods.

    I see your complaint, and acknowledge. And to the best of my ability, I think I get what you're saying.

    You don't like being censored.

    Imagine that, people wanting to swear on the Internet.

    That's stupid. If you use cursing words, then it's YOUR fault. The rules are clear. "No cursing", not "curse as you like because we have a *trumpets* language filter."

    What you're saying makes sense as much as: "I pointed the gun at the victim and pulled the trigger. It's his fault. Don't blame me because he didn't avoid it!!!" o_O

    If you curse, you have broken the rules. If you break the rules, you get punished. Simple as that.

    The way I see it, they don't want you using profanity, at the same time, if you do use it, they wouldn't want young children to see it. Once it is seen, it cannot be unseen. So, the warning is so that next time you're about to use profanity, you think twice about it.

    It wouldn't be good if someone makes a post consisting of only a string of profanity. Who knows how many people would see it before a mod gets in to delete it, and who knows how many of those people would be 13 year olds.

    Not everyone uses profanity, not everyone knows what the words mean (contrary to popular belief), since AF is a child-friendly environment, the site admins don't want to be exposing pre-teens and whatever to these words.

    The same applies to chat, what is seen cannot be unseen.

    I'm pretty sure it's your fault for having a crappy language filter.

    I don't use exotic profanity.

    EDITED : There's no need to make examples.

    If those don't get filtered, then you don't have a very effective profanity filter, now do you?

    And considering that 3 of the 6 didn't get picked up, it begs the question -- "Why waste the space of a language filter that only works 1/2 of the time?"

    I'm just saying...

    You do realize that this site is viewed by minors as young as eight and adults as old as one-hundred and two.
    The words that were not censored are not really red-flagged curse words, but it should be used in moderation and it shouldn't be used to an extent and in no way should it be used in a offensive or flaming need.
    Also, you shouldn't use alternatives, or "camoflage" it.
    This site has been getting along just fine for plenty of years without cursing. Why should it be a problem now? Cursing shouldn't be in your vocabulary if you want to be professional in the real world anyways.

    Ace wants to keep this family-friendly, and if you don't like the censoring, go make your own forum.

    Damn, hell, and piss--all are words we allow. So, according to your example, our profanity filter worked 100% of the time, not 50% like you've stated.

    Because there are rules you agreed to when you signed up for an account. We assumed you have more maturity than a 5 year old and would respect those rules. Obviously we were mistaken. Since we are mistaken sometimes we have admins that ensure you remember the rules you agreed to when you registered and punish you for breaking them.

    I will inform you that Che Guerava is NOT cheering you on from beyond the grave for your viva la resistance, and "sticking it to the man" with your clever use of swear words. You are no more "unique" and "edgy" than every other 15 year old who tries to rebel against their parents with your rebel words. Grow up, get over it.

    The rules are there, they're not changing. Read the fine print next time before you click "I AGREE", and before you start whining over something so stupid and trivial.
