If that is acceptable, why bother using the filter? Might as well turn it off completely. What is the point of a setting/rule if it is never enforced?

    That being said, given the majority of the audience, there should probably be a few more words added.

    I just realized I posted this in the lounge, when the Site Feedback section is more appropriate.

    Why? They have already heard the words, and if not they have to hear them some time. Giving up freedom for temporary security is very stupid. They are just words anyway. They don't hurt anyone so I don't see why parents shield their children from such things.

    Unfortunately the search doesnt work with three letter words or I could give examples. Gay is not automatically an offensive term (gay pride parade). On this site people use the term gay as a syninim for stupid and thats when it becomes offensive. I have yet to see one person on this forum use the term gay in a positive sense.


    On the other hand "jap" is always an offensive term no matter your intentions. The globally accepted abreviation for Japan is either JP or JPN. In the other thread I proved this but your closed mind prevented you from seeing it.


    I cannot figure out how you became a moderator. You let your personal opinions interfear with your duty as a neutral moderator. I can only imagine you are friends with someone in control.

    No, but if you were to insult someone using racial slurs and or other filtered words I'm pretty sure they would be offended and possibly somewhat hurt.

    Things like that should be dealt with by the mods on a case to case basis rather than censoring the words since they can be used for things other than racism. How does it make it any better if it is censored anyway? You can still tell what they were trying to say. If I say you are a stupid **** you know what I was trying to say and it wouldn't be any worse if it was uncensored.

    I invite you to read the Wikipedia page on the term Yankee http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yankee . There you will see its most common use is neither positive or negative.
    If you read note 5 "Johnathan Hastings of Cambridge, Massachusetts was attributed around 1713 to regularly using the word as a superlative, generally in the sense of excellent"

    I assume you know the song "yankee doodle" ?

    When I read the Merriam Webster dictionaries definition I find no evidence of it being negative

    Your attempt at analogy was good but still does not apply.

    Close the thread if you like. It only serves to prove that once again Wiichat supports the use of attacks on others race or sexual orientation.
