You can't say www together because they don't want people linking websites even though I don't think anyone uses www anyway



The word rape in gaming is a slang that is different from its actual meaning, it's not a good word in either means but still, it's one of the most common words to use for gamers behind the F word

@Pastabowl. I know what you're saying about the slang, and when used in that way, it's not too big a deal, but I'm on celestial hills server. The word rape is constantly being used, not in the "gamer slang" way, but in the offensive way, with rape threats and all kinds of crap.

Hi folks. Just to update everyone, we discussed it a bit and have decided that despite there being some other definitions or uses of the word, that it is appropriate to block the word from chat in the game. The difficulty we face is in the way our word filter works. If we simply add the word to the block list, it will block all words that contain that letter combination, such as Grape, Drapes, etc...We are looking into alternate ways of blocking just the offensive word without impacting a whole host of other words.

What about word "now" with asterisk at the end ("now*")? Just curious why it blocked.

My understanding is that characters not on a standard English keyboard will not be accepted in chat, including "é".

And where does this censorship stop? Will you be filtering other offensive language? I can't recall all the terms that are censored since I do not often use such language, so please excuse me if I rattle off anything that's already filtered, but if I make a thread demanding that the following words be filtered will you comply with my wishes?

Retard
Jew
Niqqa
lynch
towelhead
macaco

I could go on and on. If I demand that these offensive words be filtered will you follow through? The chat block option exists for a reason. The report function exists for a reason. If people are offended by someone's language they can block and/or report them.

You should really consider throwing the wordfilter in the garbadge. Chats should never be filtered. Ban those that abuse it rather than applying an awful solution that can never understand context.
