You can turn that feature off, we are all adults here, aren't we? Oh well.

The problem is not us that are already on the forum but those that are lurking in the background that might be of a younger age.

We will be considering a feature to possibly turn the word censor off but at this stage it is still on the wish list (y)

My own personal view is that it's not necessary to swear all over the place it's just show a lack of vocabulary.
On the odd occasion it is used it's no hardship to star some of it out so it's not so in your face.

Without a COPPA system in place, anyone under the age of 13 could realistically claim that something on the board offended their senses or something to that effect, and the parents of said person could then begin legal proceedings and probably succeed.

Of course, people who find cursing to be offensive should typically be looking for something more important to fret over, but such is life.

Flip side to that is people who can't talk/type without constant swearing should look for a down in the gutter forum.

We do have the COPPA system in place but that does not stop guest from viewing threads and topic unless you close that all off to them.

Personally i swear on here for the sake of a laugh and i ignore those who get offended so easily.

Maybe it should be a personal setting as opposed to a stupid overall.

Well if we do change it that would be the way it would be for it to be turned off by the members that want to do so.

Mrs Doyle swearing on the British comedy show Fr Ted:

(The show has a cult following and was created in Ireland in the 1990's but was rejected by Irish TV, so they went to England where it was produced and became a smash hit particularly in Ireland where the story line is based)
In this scene Fr Ted is talking to Mrs Doyle about his favourite author.

Gonna have to agree here. The swear sensor is one of the dumbest rules a forum could ever in establish. Why? Because you're not doing anyone a favor when those "younger members" or other members who are offended by swear words when they have access to the entire internet. Giving them a choice to turn it off is a much more reasonable approach because it doesn't infringe on the rights of those of us who do want to use the type of language we want, so long as it's not racist (in this case, I can understand that rule).

I must confess I hadn't noticed anything resembling COPPA when I registered. Though it's not something I actively search for.

Unfortunately this will not be a function that will be done globally. If members feel strongly that they really need to see the few words that we have censored there is a premium (paid) add on that could be purchase (y)

This will enable members to turn it off on their own profile settings

I can live with the built in swear censor and the staff making alterations to posts that deliberately bypass it.
Nothing people say can shock me I live in one of the worst areas of Birmingham so I've heard and seen it all.
Would point out however that the original proposed action would not have infringed anyone's rights because they don't have that right.All rights on a forum belong to the owner/owners.
