I woke up thinking about this. The site has a language filter, most likely to limit abuse, understandable, but there are those of us who use swearing as an expression. As do many of our favourite artists we all listen to. I just think that we are all consenting adults (for the most part) and that being censored in our use of language is rather prohibitive. I get that there will be many younger people that come on here and perhaps, will in the future, but most of these kids are already exposed to language on other social platforms. I would like that filter removed. After all, it is a fundamental human right - article 10- freedom of expression ;)

I think we are all capable of using language in a way not to offend and if it does, then one must view the intention behind it and make a judgement for themselves.

Just a thought.

I didn't even know there was a language filter here !

Now I feel extremely tempted to test it 😆
mother-f*cking shit and silly **** balls what the f*ck !

...it was the word "silly" right ... it went a bit too far?

Wow ok shit got through unscathed but it didn't like f*** or ****

chemicaloverload

Hahaha yes, it was silly that tipped it there.

I think they should all get through :)

Ok, another test:  ;)

No f*cking way will this list ever be f*cking changed! You can all p*** off now, you c***!

(Please note: 2 of the words above had to be censored by myself, this list is f*cking useless!)
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...

The word NO is way worse than all the other words you used

Also, if it's useless, get rid ;)

Sounds good, but be aware that not everyone will or can follow you. The idea behind Curefans
is to use English in a proper way. I do not tolerate rhetorical questions, repeatedly b*llsh*tt*ng
me and replies with one or maximal two words. I know that you have the support from the staff,
but again - this is an international forum. Watch your words and sentences! Once and for all.

élevé de précision, et nous avons plus de joie

Is this a general reply MM or are we doing this dance again?

as this is a democracy I will open a poll (about the F word censorship) in another topic and leave it to a vote. I personally don't mind either way but this is a community and therefore rules can be revised.

Take cure!

And you do so too! Once more, just for you!

If you got a problem with rhetorical questions that's your problem, not that of the staff!! :pouting-face

Open a poll. I have a speech prepared in support of a yes vote  :lol:

I don't care if a word filter is installed or not but I do care about the
use of language itself. It's a wonderful tool for expression. Swearing
can be disastrous in the wrong time and wrong place. I do appreciate
a fine sense of (black) humor and self-irony, something that is even hard
to understand in my first language (German). Curefans is acknowledged
to be as a more 'intellectual' site (always considering that music is a universal
language - pun not intended). Seeing it decline to social-media-status is what
I don't want. It destroys the different shades and nuances of language in general
and finally every communication. Nevertheless, a poll is a good idea. Why not?
