    We at ID wish to allow all members the privilege to speak their minds. Of course some conversation may entertain some of the more colorful expressions of the English language. We are OK with that to a reasonable degree.

    Right to the point: ID is now using a censor system that can and will selectively block and overwrite any word in the library. Right now the library is small, but as time goes on, more will be added.

    If you see a censored word, it will look like: #@!&%

    test word: #@!&% (hit reply to see the test word)

    Freedom of Choice:
    All registered and logged-in members will have the option to turn the censor system off for all blocked words and thereby see everything as typed in all it's glory.

    Preferences >> Options >> Enable Profanity Contents >> (check/uncheck)

    All not logged-in guests, as well as search engine spiders, will always see the censored version.

    Of course this doesn't mean that everybody can go on a drunken sailor trashing of the city pub now, but it does mean that everyone gets their choice and it isn't such a big deal to worry about. This is something I prefer as a choice myself.

    Feel free to PM me a convo with a link to any post or content that you think should be addressed by the censor system as you see fit.

    this is just a test

    ...Oh #@!&% I have to change my settings back to test..

    hold on..

    #@!&% #@!&% #@!&% #@!&%


    #@!&% hell

    well still needs a few definitions, but I love the fact it gets edited the same for every word. Makes it harder to guess.

    I already self edit anyway, but #@!&% sometimes I just need those extra words.

    I have just uploaded a master-list to the profanity filter.

    Yes, it is still not all-inclusive.
    No, I haven't reviewed the whole list yet installed. I may remove one or two.
