Oh, come on. You've got to be kidding me.

If you have a problem with swearing, then why don't you just get off the internet. Seriously.

This is an all-ages site and so we take it rather seriously. I'd rather people who are unable to stop themselves from typing expletives get off the internet (or at least confine it to spaces where it's accepted). Seriously.

Sean is right (when isn`t he? :P). My view is that they shouldn`t be swearing, but a censor just covers it up. Right now, most of us, if we swear, we cover it up with something. Be it an asterisk (*) or this thingy-mabob: @, we usually cover it up. But we had to have had a reason to use that word in the first place, everyone get upset, everyone swears, just in their own way. I don`t get this taboo we have on certain words, you swear to make a point and all intensive purposes, "fudge" is a swear word when used as one. Some people replace "bull****" with "bull", but it is still swearing. You`re not eliminating it, you`re just covering it up and suddenly it is ok to say these words in a context in which similar words, it is not. The words began being bad words, not swear words, but then people started swearing with them, so then it isn`t right to swear. But if it isn`t right to swear, why can we use "fudge"? Or "flossewaffle"? So, in truth, it must be the meaning of the word that we have a problem with. Which, at least to me, is kind of interesting. It`s not swearing that is the problem, but the meaning of the "swear".
So, for someone who doesn`t know the meaning of the word, why is it bad for them to hear it? I can`t think of any definite explanation, but it is interesting to think about. To me anyway.

Ok, how about this: Do you want people swearing, but cover it up somehow, or do you want it minimized/eliminated? I think that is kind of a central question to all of this.
Oh, and sorry about the overly long analysis.

I say we censor the ":3" thing. It wasn't too bad whenever people started using it, but now it's just getting tiresome. Hopefully a new fad'll come along and the :3 will be forgotten. Like that'll happen.

Perfect example for what I hate about censors, we get incoherent babble on the level of a 7 year-old who just discovered the swear words.
