Hey signed up for tomshardware 5months later wait I'm getting banned for cursing in a couple post so why did I have to say I'm 13 or older and I'm also getting close for asking a badly worded my friend got this laptop and the person forgot the password and I need a way to basically reset do you know a way. And fuck punctuation

Some forums have different requirements. Technically, we don't like swearing here either, and there was a time where swearing wasn't allowed at all, but over time we became more lenient because almost everyone on here does it, and it was becoming incredibly difficult dealing with it. That being said, excessive swearing is not allowed.

Kids swear at young ages. Trust me having a profanity filter won't help. Because people will use stuff like duck instead of fuck and everybody will know exactly what that person meant with duck...

You could always bypass it with Cyrillic characters.

mods,i don't know if this is legally necroposting on LTTF,if so,please just feel free to PM me (or warn me or whatever).

honestly,i support this idea. excessively swearing just isn't very pretty.

sure,out of rage you can just say "fuck!" once in a while but when it gets to saying it at least twice in a ~five minute span,that's when it gets excessive.

Back in '95-y2k , AOL prevented residents from Scunthorpe from creating an account because the profanity filter blocked the word "cunt". Some years later Google apparently made the same mistake, lol ( they wouldn't let people search for businesses from Scunthorpe)

That reminds me. In the fifth generation Pokémon games, due to the trading profanity filter, you could not trade Cofagrigus, Nosepass or Probopass without a nickname, because their names contain "fag" and "ass" respectively. This was fixed in generation VI, but yeah, profanity filters can have some pretty annoying side effects.

Yup xD In Game Freak's efforts to keep trades clean, they... ended up blocking un-nicknamed Pokémon as well, because their names contain banned words.

You just write the swear word in a notepad, print screen the word, cut and paste into paint, and hotlink the image where you want the profanity to display.

 

Then await the moderators going wtf.  Oh the fun back in XP days with that.

You've not been around a real long time here, but even since march you should have been able to tell that we don't really have a swearing problem here.

Do some users use profanity more often than others? Sure, some do. But because some do, that doesn't mean the rest of the entire forum need to be disciplined for it by censorship. There are times when a 'fuck' or 'shit' are perfectly acceptable; regardless of situation.

 

that and there's 1000 ways to sunday to bypass a profanity filter. People will find a way around it the moment it gets implemented. Profanity filters rarely ever do any good.

I remember playing some online game in which you couldn't say "hello", because it had "hell" in it.

That's...really bad.

I doubt people are going to purposely try to evade it

I think you fail to realize how moronic the average person on the internet is and how determined they can be to swear. 

That being said I feel this feature is entirely unnecessary. As the video states filtering at its best is ineffective at its worst its infuriating as innocent things are filtered out.

And yet people are still going in circles, promoting the profanity filter idea; even though its been thoroughly shot down by both staff members, and regular uses alike in the thread.
