censorship

I know that we censor out curse words to keep the site family friendly, but instead of using the word "beep" for every letter, could it just be a "*". so instead of "beepbeepbeepbeep" it would just show up as "****". i think that would just be better.

First off etalian you're too young too read stuff like that.

Just teasing you buddy!

I can make adjustments to it sure and maybe the LOOOOOG beep thing is a bit annoying, so I'll get with Marc and the Mods and we'll discuss it.

I'm not able to turn it off for individuals, that's not built into the software - but you'd probably me a millionaire if you could design it that way.

You know I'm just playin' man.
The "beepbeepbeepbeep" thing is annoying to me as well so we'll talk about making it a little less - but and still keeping the cuss filter on because that's something I won't change.

I didn't know the site put in the "beeps". I thought everyone just typed it themselves to replace the words. I figured it was a powerstroke.org thiing.

I wondered why everyone spent that much time typing that many beeps.
