I wrote a long post. I'm not allowed to post it because "Profanities are not allowed in this forum." But, as far as I know, I didn't use any profanity. And it's a long post. It's frustrating trying to read every word with an eye to whether whoever programed this website may think it is profane.

So, first, I suggest that words deemed objectionable be highlighted. This will enable us to change the contested words, and post our arguments.

Second, I'm going to post my argument in this thread, one paragraph at a time, since I don't want to pollute the other thread, and can't think of another way to find the alleged profanity.

Cut a paragraph and see if it allows you to review. If so, you know the problem paragraph.

Cut a paragraph and see if it allows you to review. If so, you know the problem paragraph.

This is a great idea. I would suggest a similar method. Suppose you have 8 paragraphs in your argument:

1) Cut the first four and see if it allows you to post.
2) If yes, the problem word is in the last four.
3) Cut paragraphs 5 and 6 and see if it allows you to post.
4) If no, the problem word is in either paragraph 5 or 6.
5) Cut para 5. Repeat.
6) If no, then you know the profanity is in that paragraph.

You can zone in on the problem words that way.

I finally found my problem. I had to change d*icks to dorks to be able to post. The thing is, I wasn't being insulting; I was actually talking about d*cks, or dorks.

Thanks for the suggestions on how to find the fuckin word d*cks.

I emphatically oppose ending the language filter. If we ended the language filter, some foul-mouthed types would probably say things like "fuckin" and "d*cks," not to mention shitt, pisss, fukk, cvnt, cockssucker, motherfukker, and titss.

I dunno. I'm in favor of it being removed, but I understand the place that people who are against it being removed are coming from. While dropping it down will allow those with less maturity to abuse the fact they can now curse like a sailer uninhibited, but there are more mature people whom (I believe and hope) outnumber those who are immature and will not abuse the added liberty. It is a bit annoying when you really feel like a curse word is necessary to put a troll in their place or to show how stupid a comment is and then the chat bar denies you with a troll-face easily imaginable being aimed straight in your direction.

Zaradi is tired, and thus less likely to pick up jokes. -.-

I have to inject reality into a deeply philosophical discussion, but if the site allows unlimited profanity, it will be blocked by the net-nanny software used by schools, libraries, and some parents.

It's good to have a site that requires people to express themselves in a mature way.
Debate should not be about people acting out their emotions. t should be about reasoned argument.

So **** ***, you ********.

Well, lets face it, people go around the filter anyways, so we may as well remove it.
You know how people, when they don't know the meaning of a word, automatically think it's appropriate?
Well, How about this one:
Schloop-Schloop-Ping-a-Pang-bong
Which means:
