    Any public forum/chat that is accessible to minors should be censored accordingly and the level should be PG, not even PG-13 – my guild has a member playing under tutelage of his dad and he is only 11 years old.

    I don’t even... The filter appears to be working perfectly then. Battle Bay has no place for “violent role play”. Please go elsewhere. Thank you.

    These words were actually unfiltered after the update.

    I have seen people double posting, triple posting, but penta posting? Why not just edit your first message instead of spamming?
    Also you say that children playing are in the minority, I would say people wanting violent role play in a family friendly game are the minority.

    The only reason you would want words uncensored is because you want to use them. Why would you conisder non swear word chats "Boring"? Remember, BB has kids too and they shouldn't be infulenced by people that use swear words for "fun".

    I voted "Neutral" at first, but now I change my mind. For a different reason though. This new sensorsing system is good in some ways, like allowing some previously unreasonably sensored words to be unsensored (e.g. posted, BITER, Japanese etc), and by preventing spammers from spamming bad words altogether. However now I find that normal sentences just get sensored for no reason and the game just keeps saying "Message Removed" when I try to say them. For example, now I can't say "(sorry for) afking" (I know it contains a profanity, but its a reasonable word to use) or "I don't have youtube". Even though the previous sensoring system had some loopholes, with people using alternative vowels (idk what the proper term is) like á or just adding spaces in between the letters, it was quite ok other than the occasional madman spammer in dropdead :p. Now this new system just annoys casual chatters who have no intention to be nuisances. Bring back the old sensoring system!

    Include is obviously a dirty word. But asshat is not.

    It’s fine to let me know per PM ( personal message ;) ) which words should work as they are normal so we can adjust the filter.
    We are definitely not bringing back the old one as it was not functioning to the extend that chat needed to be moderated.

    Any new system will take a bit of time and isn’t perfect to start with - so: PM away!

    Spoon probably shouldn’t be blocked. Admittedly, I did discover it was censored, while discussing implements that could be used to violently dismember someone... but I was still referring to the utensil, which is harmless enough.

    All that censoring ‘spoon’ has done, is made it difficult to discuss cutlery, and alerted me to an obscure racial slur that I would otherwise have never know about.

    The racial slur is very obscure.. but it probably censors part of that word for being a sexual slur.

    Yes, probably because of "spooning" etc instead of a racial slur...

    I think @Help I Cant Swim is right, it’s the p**n component which is blocked.

    Spooning isn’t exactly x-rated.

    I think we can wrap this one up now.

    Please feel free to PM @The Grim Repair with any words that you feel are an example of "unnecessary censorship" but I don't think we need people trying to figure it out here.
