What's with the automatic censorship?

28 Feb 2016 18:50

Is this new? Or have I just not seen it before? It's pretty annoying as if you write the words Arsenal then it censors it, even though it is a football club, or a word that means a collection of weapons. Can someone fix this?

It was always there... Strange that you never noticed it
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Guess I never used a word that needed censorship, I guess. Mind you, it doesn't censor all words, shite isn't censored. Although, some races can only be described using that word. I'm still confused as to why Ar.senal is censored. Because just conataining a vulgar word doesn't necessarily merit censorship, as proved above. Is there just someone among the IT staff who really hates the gunners?

Before the forum changes even spaziociclismo was impossible to spell. Now we just have a different list of bad words :p You can try to ask the devs if you want...

This has always been a feature of the forum, as anyone who has tried to mention the former head of WADA would know.

Tour of Britain visits neither Scunthorpe not Prattsbottom this year, so it shouldn't be an issue.

It was hard to discuss cricket in the cafe when Pakistan was censored.

The filter seems to be slightly relaxed lately
