Why doesn't it give us clue as to what the censored work is? I mean seriously, if someone is saying f**k you or s**t off then show some of it and not just ****

    I guess it's for the children?

    I normally dont mind censorship of curse words, but in the case of this forum it is odd considering we are allowed to post virtual reality porn images and videos.

    So we can show f*****g but we cant say f*****g? hm.

    I'd like to change my vote to 3rd option. It's ridiculous some of the words it's blanking out.

    I didn't realise there was a filter on the way but anything that takes away the need for mods to be nannies is an improvement.

    One of the problems with swear words (at least in an online forum) is they seldom have the effect the user intended... what was maybe meant to sound angry and butch tends to end up sounding a little crazy and emotional.

    lol Shadow, I think the censor is actually a Mod making manual edits.

    Erm censor malfunctioning. Does not compute.

    Edit: if you're going to add a word censor then at least make it work before you roll it out.  :D

    Cue a hundred people posting swear words to test :|

    The censored word was a name for a woman's lady garden that starts with c and rhymes with shunt.

    Further tin foil hat proof that there is a s e x word ban (which is also censored)

    hmm, testing the Auto-Censor algorithm:

    WARNING: NSFW
    fuck
    shit
    piss
    ass
    cunt
    dick
    cock
    pussy
    boobs
    tits
    nipples
    sex
    HTC
    Vive


    Looks like some vulgar words are still safe from Auto-Censorship :o

    Also, the censorship happened a few minutes after I posted the words. So either it is a person doing manual edits, or the forum software has some kind of censorship delay.

    The last 2 are appalling and have no place on this forum.
    Why were you unbanned again?

    Hmm, p o r n shouldn't be in there, since we have vr p o r n threads.

    Post preview doesn't show the censoring, so you can't test without actually posting.

    Its just sound waves and the expression of emotion. Can be annoying and jarring, but its also a little weird that po*p is okay and shit is "bad", when they both boil down to sound waves and does anyone ever think of the literal meaning of those words when using them anyway? And if these particular sound waves aren't inherently bad, isn't it wrong to teach young people that people that use these heavily are "bad" people when they simply have people around them that encourage their use? I think much like the messages i received about drug users being bad people when i was young, which absolutely affected my view of them, there is unnecessary social/societal damage that occurs when "incorrect" labeling occurs. I also think all this is based on what the Bible says about cursing, but i once asked a Bible study teacher what it actually said about it and he said the only thing it said was not to use the lords name in vain. I'm not saying the use of those words can't correctly indicate something about that person, just that the consequences of censorship might outweigh the positives.

    Anyway, i bid you all a good day m*therfuckers.

    EDIT: I guess the system also censors the word po*op? Test: poop. So how does a doctor talk to patients without being rude? Is there anything wrong with that refers to? Isn't it a natural human process? Isn't it part of an amazing bodily mechanic that allows us to move and think and explore the stars? Or is it actually........EVIL? Maybe EVIL?

    I had an 80% feeling that it was going to censor both p o r ns I wrote, but I did a preview and it showed it without censor. So I posted to see what would happen (is preview wrong or can mods swear?), ready to edit if needed.
