Personally, I think the censor filter should go altogether...

Well, for the truly anti-swear, the option might as well be there.

Quote from: Pat Sajak
The explosion of technology has, it seems to me, led to a strange twisting of the whole freedom of speech debate. For many, the argument has appeared to advance from protecting all forms of speech to protecting all forms of speech in all arenas. In other words, creating safe havens is, somehow, censorship. Requiring printed lyrics so that parents can monitor their kids’ listening habits is, in this new world, tantamount to censorship. (Just ask Tipper Gore the problems that can cause).

It’s one thing to rail against so-called bluenoses who are trying to dictate what others can and should do; it’s another to insist that no one should be able to shield himself or his family from what he—for whatever reason—may find offensive. All any of us should ask is the freedom to choose what we want or don’t want. Why can’t we opt-in for that?

How the **** did Sapphira stay an admin?

Off topic, I know, but this thread reminds me of her so much.

[darn] it Jake, don't pull her out of the woodwork.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

I'll have to admit, it's more fun without her.

For some people, at least.

I've tried to stop cursing in my posts as of late simply because I don't really need to.

I won't hesitate to swear (here, at least), but only if I feel I really "need to". I think swear words should be used to express extreme emotion; swear all the time, the words lose their impact.

Yeah, same here. When someone does something outrageous, I'll probably respond with the usual assortment of "curse" words. They're just words after all.

She's probably the only one here who actually "moderates" anything (no offense to other mods).

I've seen Suffix censor one post.
