move to suggestions ...
Hey Percy,

Whose messages are you talking about?

Ones where certain blacklisted words are replaced by *'s (and yes people there are blacklisted words).

What about making a toggle for individuals to turn on and off?

Enjoy

If it is the public's impression in general that you are trying to protect, then perhaps we can have a feature where individual members can choose whether they want to view threads with censorship or without censorship.

Then most people will see the censored posts by default, and those who have it turned off can see the uncensored posts once they log in and be as offended as they please.

Not sure if that would work or not.

ABE: See that RAZD already mentioned the same thing

Personal Attacks

I try very hard to attack the idea and topic, not the person.

Yah sure, Jar, like year in and year out questioning whether Buz has ever read the Bible whenever something Biblical is debated.


BUZSAW B 4 U 2 C Y BUZ SAW.
The Immeasurable Present Eternally Extends the Infinite Past And Infinitely Consumes The Eternal Future.

Someone wisely said something ;ike, "Before fooling with a fool, make sure the fool is a fool." :)

Re: Personal Attacks
That is a valid question Buz, certainly not attacking you.

Have you ever actually read the Bible Buz?


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

Re: move to suggestions ...
There are no words on the site-wide censored list. Some individuals have a few.

For me it's all just vocabulary. I guess that means we wouldn't get approval for children beneath a certain age, but there are no public sensibilities I'm trying to protect. I'm just trying to better leverage the moderator resources we have.

I added some censored words to someone else for a while, I think it was Dr Adequate. I know he doesn't lack for ego, but even so, I don't think the guy recognizes his own talent for creative expression. It seemed to me that the censoring caused an increase in his creative output, to all our mutual benefit.

And in my opinion, the censoring has had the same effect on Jar.

This seems more like Wheel of Fortune, but Pat Sajak, er, Ringo, seems to have taken a break. Anyway, I'll guess S.

Faith
Given Faith has opted to take simple measures to defeat the Forum Software's Censorship System - I think a case can be made to remove the restrictions. They just impede her saying what she is going to say anyway, make it difficult for searches to find posts of her's that use the word in the future and actually, I expect, confuse lots of people as to why she insists on calling things 'IN/SANE'

Edited by AdminModulous, : No reason given.

Re: Faith
Any moderator can edit a member's censored word list. What we really need is a setting to control maturity level.
