Re: ability to turn swear filter on/off

optional profanity filter is a great idea.

txt spk is really annoying, but it is also useful, it tells me i'm dealing with someone who is young, dumb, and has very limited understanding the english language. i can then adopt my reply to avoid long words and complicated ideas, giving the reader half a chance of understanding me without consulting a dictionary or googling it.

if idiots could hide behind an automatic txt spk converter i may mistake a fool for someone with a brain, and that always causes confusion for both parties.

Txt Spk on any forum annoys the hell out of me. It's lazy and inconsiderate, as well as being difficult for some people to understand. Jug does have a point though in that a text filter that replaces 'txt' with real words might actually make some dumb illiterates appear more intelligent than they actually are

I have to admit that I don't bother to reply to some posts BECAUSE they've been written in text speak. If someone wants advice or information they have to write properly for me to respond

Swear filter? P1$$ off! (lol! - oops, txt spk!) There are already some loopholes regarding the current filter, but in general it works well. However, pu$$y is NOT a swear word but if I write it properly - ***** - the txt filter thinks it is? Yet 'bastard' is allowed???

Swearing doesn't bother me if it's done in moderation. Excessive use of profanities in one post can be offensive though. Optional use of a swear filter is a good idea

I think the forum would look rough and chavvy if everyone could see the swearing on there. If people choose to select the swear filter off then thats fine, but i wouldnt want to see it go altogether.

Well yeah that's what i meant but didn't say, basically I'd have it turned off. Swearing isn't chavvy, a lot of people swear, them "aristocrats" that were on channel 4 swore like truckers!

Re: ability to turn swear filter on/off

Well you could have it so you could only turn off the filter if you were a member.
Then guests wouldn't be forced to read anything they may find offensive, and once you were a member it would be your choice.

TXT filter could screw with my spelling tho!

Re: ability to turn swear filter on/off

i think having it on by default but with the option to turn it off is the way forward, everyones a winner as far as i can see?
