Japanese, for one. That is, they don't have "swear words" like English does. You can still insult people or whatever.
That was a joke.

They're just words. They're only offensive based on the context you use them in. If I swear in a manner that is not intended to personally attack someone, then it shouldn't be a big deal.

Yeah, the Japanese language doesn't really contain swear words. This is why whenever Sakura says "Shannaro!" in Naruto, it can translate out as "Alright!" or the more profane "$#@% yeah!"

Subbing companies have field days with the Japanese language. The Sonic X sub features colorful language when other, less profane words, could be used.

Well, a lot of time, that type of translation is more or less in the right spirit. It's just that in Japan, saying it wouldn't be offensive. (To Chef: i.e. not offensive in any context as the word applies to English sentences.)
That was a joke.

I take it you were just quoting for truth?

Either do it right or explain exactly how deleting censored words makes sense.

Keep in mind also that beyond what the forum offers, many browsers (Firefox w/ Greasemonkey and Opera for two) allow the loading of JavaScript files which allow the user to remove/replace any string (regular expressions, even) the user does not wish to see in most instances.  Worst case scenario?  You filter out too much and/or you have to see what words you're filtering to begin with.  If you have a problem with images, block all images or block any server that hosts them.

If any of the above sounds like a bad idea, then why have you only started now to think?

Clearly the solution to this problem is to convert the board to Japanese only.

任天堂ホームページには、岩田社長が自ら任天堂の方々に インタビューするコーナーがあります。その名も『社長が訊く』。そこで、わたしこと桜井政博が、なぜか岩田社長に訊かれてしまいました。えーっ。わたしは任天堂の人じゃないよ? ホントにやるの? やりますか。そうですか。やりましょうとも!! 『スマブラX』制作の舞台裏が少しだけ覗けるかもしれません!

No. I firmly believe moderators should not edit any posts at regardless of reason. Having never edited any post on this forum, I say this as completely unbiased.

Yes. I don't like reading swears so I think mods should censor them. Is there a rule against swearing that there's censor?
