It’s my understanding that this forum uses some sort of propriety Microsoft software, and therefore uses some ultra G-rated censorship software that they developed. But the sheer amount of censorship on this forum is so over the top as to be ridiculous. In fact it even often gets in the way of having a conversation or using specific non-offensive terms. I once had to edit my post that said “head-b(u)tt” (as in, the actual attack known with this name) because the auto-censorship software kicked in and censored my usage of “b(u)tt”. Certain words that aren’t even remotely offensive get censored as well, like the word “d(ea)th”, which has even been censored in the character description in the Maya subforum posted by one of your own employees.
Enough is enough. Please, treat us like reasoning adults and remove this ridiculous feature. We are not small children who need our eyes protected from vulgarities, and much less do we need you to do it for us. We are all discerning grown ups here with the ability to choose our words and what sort of interactions we’d like to have.
