Is this going to be added? I'm sorry for being such an old man before my time, but overly strong language generally leads to people getting emotional about otherwise trivial issues.

Or is this added? I seem to remember seeing some potty language last night, but I can't remember what thread. It doesn't bother me to the point where I'd want to stop coming here, but I don't think it has a place in friendly, all-ages conversation.

I understand such "censorship" is a touchy topic and some may object, but I'm just asking.

It's not censorship - it's responsible moderation for casual forums.

@ deadly
I agree. That's why I put it in quotes. I think fighting against artistic censorship is generally a noble fight, but its banner is often flown to fight against the most minor interferences even when it harms no one.

This shouldn't be too much of an ache to implement.

On my YouTube videos, I delete all comments with swearing in on first sight, and if I ever find it to be happening lots on one video, I change the settings so that only friends can comment. Good idea though, Adam.

If there is a profanity filter though guys, how about you just replace words with others, such as "funk", "poo" (instead of s---), or "piddle" (instead of p---). Then, we can all laugh at the people who tried to swear in the first place.
