I mean, if you are using one of those words with malicious intent and you really are a racist, you suck.

I wholeheartedly second this.

The reason nigger is filtered is because that's what most assholes use.

I honestly can't believe people don't understand this.

If you take away the most frequented toy, it's unlikely most people will ply their bullshit. 

If people have other penchants, you can apply it to that

Over time, people learn if they are especially abusive to fags or chinks, and it reads "I'm an asshole" when they review their posts, they will GO THE FUCK AWAY.  AND I WON'T HAVE TO BAN THEM.

SMARTEN THE FUCK UP.

Will dickface be in the new word filter?

It's merely an ant in my pant, Brasky. Made worse so by champions of a fair creed such as yourself who are outraged by one misstep and humored by another. Consistency counts for a lot where sanity dwells.

I did spend awhile as the resident racist here. The tag went away not because it was shaken off but because it didn't stick to begin with. I don't hate based on ethnicity, skin color or whatever. Very simple really.

Use any of 'em in a way that eventually pisses off a mod you'll start to get warnings. Keep fucking around and you may earn a ban.

No more debate.

Brother- I hope that's a general warning and not personally directed towards me. Check the archives on any of my posts and you'll see zero instances of me using slurs in any malicious sense. Rarely even in a humorous way.

..ironic yeah?

Now that the policy is evenly applied I'm finding myself perked right up. I'm going to ingest an aperitif.

 I think Facebook is partly responsible for that, too.  Some people hang out there exclusively. 


I'd venture to say thats 95% of it right there......maybe even more.

I would like to be able to shithead someone again.  Sometimes people don't make it to the level of needing to be removed, but they still suck.  I think banning the use of the n-word is silly, but apparently it causes issues somehow.  


Pretty sure global mods can shithead - can't they?

Shitheads are not allowed in "serious stuff".

It isn't that I don't understand.  It makes sense to me.  I just think it's stupid that people need other people to sensor them.  It's sad.

Hey, while I have everyones attention here, I've just gotta bring up the following:

Is there a way to stay logged into this forum? I have to continuously log in throughout the day, and half the time I get a page that says I am not authorized to use the page, and then I have to clear my cookies/cache to be able to log in. I know at least one other person has had this problem. How do I  "stay logged in forever"?
