I don't want to get rid of the swear filter. When Cheif gets drunk he'll swear at people and the won't want to come back.

i wouldnt worry too much about Cheif. He seems like a good guy who just likes to have fun. If i were you i could keep the swear filter and edit it if you feel like you need to.

we're not getting punished, its just a swear filter. People can swear all they want it just wont show up. I think it keeps people feeling that freedom but at the same time keeps the forum clean

I was giving an example. Anything could happen, a new member could join and create a very inappropriate name. If you need examples, pm me.

I agree with Devon.

nah i dont need examples i was more of getting at if people are going to be like that then just ban them feeling free to post your feelings is nice some people abuse it over and over and those people should be dealt with by way of the ban hammer...yes halo/bungie reference. i mean we arnt a church quire here and paintball isnt the cleanest of sports. i do agree some things need to be filtered like names and all but is there a way to selectively put the filter on? like only put it on people under 18 or something?

Keep the filter. I can't speak for all kids, but I'm trying to break the habit because soap taste nasty. Some words should be allowed though, as there a expression of feelings. But swear words that can be considered a insult should be censored. Shit is a expression of feelings. a** can be considered a insult. That also can explain cheifs earlier question.

true, but an insult is still an insult if its got stars and stuff. Like, go to h*** still means go to hell. Its just got the stars. I think we should just watch what we say and do.

It's not about winning and losing, it's about informing people of your opinion in hopes that they will change theirs.

Marxism is an economic political theory by which law is considered an instrument of oppression and control, and which the ruling class uses against the working class. ...

I just felt like sounding very hippie-ish. Marxism is confusing, I googled it and I didn't quite get the wikipedia page... I don't understand it's relevance to my post either...

You should keep the filter, it is a public forum. I wasn't saying that because you can type certain words then other words should be allowed. I was just surprised at the words that do show up. What words are worse is everyones opinion, so just keep it as-is. Although why allow shit? Just filter them all.
