I must confess while I am totally behind most profanity filters for the
purposes of keeping things accessible to as many people as possible, a line
has to be drawn somewhere.
In my old boarding school they thought the word "belly" was swearing, ----
they even thought "heck!" was. I stil however see no need to pander to this
sort of thing when the majority of people on the street wouold find it
I must say that on the audiogames.net forum, while language filters have
been set for many words (including the F word), there was a moderator
discussion about the word in question a couple of years ago, and it was
decided to remove it from the swearing filter, so it now writes as it
there have been no complaints whatsoever, and sinse it's a word I myself
use (I've possibly used it on this list), people have been much more
comfortable allowing it. ---- pluss of course, it is also a word which may
come up in conversationn on other topics rather than as an expletive, ----
in fact the discussion about removing it from the swearing filters was
prompted by discussion of the game desert strike, and it's use of h/llfire
missiles as a weapon.
thus, while I would certainly agree on keeping profanity down, I do think
there is a reasonable line. Obviously, sinse yo moderate this list and not
me, such a decision is yours to make and I'll be glad to abide by it, ----
however, i have to confess I don't agree that the H word should in deed be
banned simply because some people find it offensive, ---- would you
considder banning the word "belly?" as well?
Beware the grue!
