guys he used courier new, he's serious
Your missing the point. we don't want to have to read this profanity. and now that every little "[size=NaN]d[/size]arn" or "[size=NaN]h[/size]eck" is the cussing counterpart, I... Just don't think it is any longer and acceptable environment for any normal christian to be inside.Dunc2403 said:Uh
You know what would solve your problem
Just don't swear
That means don't pretend to swear either, because you know what?
A swear is only that because that's what the public perception of them is. The stupid little "censors" are received the exact same way.
What you're saying here is that you are going to use a mod that, believe it or not, most major members of the forums don't care about, as a bargaining chip so that we will let you pretend to swear (but not actually swear because that would be bad 0: ) without swearing.
I'm terribly sorry, but what you're asking for here (the ability to swear without swearing) is literally impossible to achieve.
And honestly, this is a really immature way of going about this. Did you even post in the thread? No, as a quick read will reveal. I'll tell you again: we could care less about a mod being abandoned. We expect it. Do you know what could have helped you? Voicing your concerns in the thread. But because you decided that rather then discuss something you disagreed with civilly, you'd take your toys and leave.
Actually, that's a good example. You're acting like a child who isn't getting his own way. Throwing a tantrum, taking his toys, and leaving.
Also, in case I haven't made it clear enough:
We don't care about your mod. The fact that you think we would simply proves the immaturity that I've already pointed out.
Keep that in mind.
You'll probably won't ever understand it from my viewpoint, but:MagicDoors said:Not to light a second fire but what does it matter, it cleans up posts and you're basically swearing anyway, if you don't want to see a truth of the real world then don't join a public forum
That's why Andy didn't filter racial slurs. African-American does have a different meaning than nigger, because it's not a derogatory term. Frick and fuck have nearly identical meanings (nearly identical, as in you wouldn't say "I fricked that dude so hard"), but one is just spelled differently so that it doesn't carry as much weight.EnlightenedOne said:In my mind I consider it like this: Do you say "African-Americans" or do you use the more inconsiderate "N*****s" when referring to them. They both mean the same, but one is disrespectful and has a more negative meaning when others hear it. You are right that sometimes it doesn't make a difference, like the words "Frick" or using "Ship", because when anyone reads them it obviously puts the real meaning in their minds. I however it doesn't fully apply to everything...
I see your point.Captain Fabulous said:That's why Andy didn't filter racial slurs. African-American does have a different meaning than nigger, because it's not a derogatory term.

Also notice how I said two very bad words without directing hate at anyone; they're only words and are only hateful if you make them so. There is an enormous debate I could have over swear words and hate speech, but this obviously isn't the place to do it. Suffice to say, swear words aren't inherently evil.
Not that swearing is a good thing. If you don't like swearing, don't swear. It's using silly-sounding synonyms like frick that bothers people like me. Try using more variety in your language instead of interjections, it's a fun challenge.
