Calm down there.

I was simply laughing at this thread because you didn't know how our retards act. It hasn't changed either.

This has been discussed to death. If a filter is clientside then those who want to curse can curse, and those who don't want to see it won't have to. It means people won't have to evade the filter, and people won't have to see cursing if they don't want to.

I think that changing the attitudes of the community is much more important (and perhaps more effective) than straight out censoring them.

Others have a right to not be harassed, for example, and shouldn't have to worry about blocking everyone on the server.

EDIT: And I agree with Rufus, censoring doesn't really change anything besides tensions. Unfortunately, changing a community's personality isn't very easy

I'm not disagreeing. Things shouldn't get too out of hand, and staff should have a degree of involvement in such a thing... but Elk's original post was very vague on the matter.

Very vague, the first thing that came to mind for me was "What's new? That it?"
