    You folks all agreed to this when you signed on to Stratics.

    From this point forward... Every post I see that violates this rule will be moved. You may or may not receive infraction points, it depends on how my real life is going.

    If you care about what you are posting do not break the forum rules. Enuf said...

    You can type ass, ****, and cock. Ass is an animal. **** used to be a name. Cock is a chicken.

    Need I really explain this?

    I've gotten into the habit of censoring myself since the filter didn't catch one and I got yelled at.

    is typing stuff like C*nt and B*tch ok?

    A word about the auto move though .... You might be setting up Griefers .....

    Such that person A has a thread, person B wants it dead. Person B breaks your rules. Thread is dead.

    Perhaps you meant that you would delete the persons post in a thread. Or just remove the content and replace it with the Rule as to why.

    If someone decides to try to grief someone else's thread the Moderators on this site have the ability to pick out specific posts in a thread and just remove the offending ones and leave the ones that follow the rules alone.

    no, it's not. That is exactly what is meant by circumventing the filter, you've replaced one letter, but it's still obvious what word you meant.

    As an incidental, that first word is my most hated word, and I believe that's true for quite a large number of women.

    The words Kelmo listed as uncensored will also be frowned upon when used in a sexual manner rather than their alternate meanings.

    There is no 'sex' in UO, let's keep it off the boards too please. If you can't disagree with someone without sexual reference, you need to seriously look at your communication skills.

    Oh I can't ressist. Words are just words they can mean anything. People are way to sensitive....

    There are too many melvins these days who act like rogers that can't understand that my pontiac is greater than there little tunnels. But sometimes those roses need to be taught a lesson. So I lay down my gauntlet on there locked doors and enjoy my sunny bright day.

    I hope that wasn't offensive to anybody especially to rabbits. :)

    Our society really needs help and remmeber the violent cartoons that we grew up with instead of arghhh barney and those banana things argg scary...

  22. What's happening in RL shouldn't have anything to do with enforcing rules. Rules are rules are rules. They're cut and dry as to what's allowable, what isn't, and what the penalty is for breaking them. That should be all there is to it. I agree with everything you said Kelmo, except for this part.

    That said, it's about time things were enforced equally across the board (pun intended).

    Actually the rules at stratics are more guidelines, as far as moderation is concerned. There is a lot of discretion left up to the mods.

    Most likely Kelmo will move posts and drop people notes, and only re-offenders will end up with the warnings. He threatens that his bad mood might make him mean but he's really just a big ol teddy bear. *kills Kelmo's street cred*

    :D

    Or even a better question...
    Why do people feel that it is so important to even try circumventing the censor in the first place, let alone feel a need to use the words that are filtered?

    Are you sure?

    I was almost sure of the fact that the ROC and TOS for Stratics were more of loose suggestions and rough guidelines to be considered when posting, kind of like the yellow traffic lights and laws frowning upon public defecation.

    This is not the case?

    i just want to see how the filter actually filters the words i censored myself

    ****. *****.


    *edit*
    So using the C word isn't ok. but ***** is? i'm pretty sure ***** is the word i got yelled at for using and had to censor it myself. which is circumventing the filter.



    *edit again*

    just for arguments sake, which uses are not allowed?

    taken from dictionary.com

    *****

    –noun
    1. a female dog.
    2. a female of canines generally.
    3. Slang.
    a. a malicious, unpleasant, selfish person, esp. a woman.
    b. a lewd woman.
    4. Slang.
    a. a complaint.
    b. anything difficult or unpleasant: The test was a *****.
    c. anything memorable, esp. something exceptionally good: That last big party he threw was a real *****.
    –verb (used without object)
    5. Slang. to complain; gripe: They bitched about the service, then about the bill.
    –verb (used with object)
    6. Slang. to spoil; bungle (sometimes fol. by up): He bitched the job completely. You really bitched up this math problem.

    @Blesh, I believe the disallowed uses is when it's obviously being used to insult someone.

    Saying your dog has been going crazy over the neighbour's ***** is fine (since it's perfectly reasonable to assume that you are not referring to the neighbour's wife/daughter, but rather their female dog).

    However, accidentally revealing that the neighbours don't really own dogs and it becomes obvious that your intent was an insult :D

    Even if you are really tight with them and you use ***** as a show of affection.



    I do have something interesting to ask the mods though, it's fine with the commonly known words, but what about saying something like:

    I don't give dem Billy Hunts a Donald Duck. Those Aristotles.
