foul language censoring

Post by Rentprop1 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 10:56 am

I get it you guys wanted to clean up the forum, but some of this word replacement is ridiculous

the work c0ck keeps gettin replaced with casual, since we have a member named Casual here and he's not a c0ck I think we need an intervention

seriously when you type c0cking handle it comes up as casual and its more than annoying, what are we in 3 rd grade here or what [smilie=011.gif]

so now we all have to be PC and use the term charging handle ??
In the days of the old west a 6 shooter was as common as cell phones are today and just annoying if they go off in a theater.

I, for one, don't think that word censoring is necessary. It is like political correctness, you say another word to replace the forbidden one. So what, you still know what I am saying, but it seem better because I did not say the "bad" word ? It does not make any sense to me.

As for turning it off, well I cannot without authorization. I never asked for it either.

Seems odd we have more restrictive content filtering than f#;.,/g Facebook.

There are only 21 words, and many are variations of the same words.

Yeah, and it is not a big deal--just odd, as I said.

On the other hand, you can't sell guns on Facebook any longer, so FSN has got it there!

Quiet your Cockadoodledoo holster

Your cocking handle / charging handle should be safe now.

IIRC Word Censoring was turned on when Casual and.... Capt. Steinbrenner were on being abnormally douchy. There were a few racial slurs that were added at the same time.
