The censor's here to stay. Some mild swearing is acceptable in most social contexts in moderation, but face it - society has many things that are conventionally frowned upon. While there are many conventions with the PokéCommunity that seem like a massive contradiction to its (COPPA-enforced) age limit, swearing isn't exactly one of them in my view. Keep it to your Facebook feed, really, because it could really undermine the social attitude in the forums.

That having been said, there does come a time you can censor bypass. We've become pretty lax on automatically filtered words, but if you choose to self-obfuscate your words, don't f***ing make it obvious. And then, there's times where it's absolutely okay to swear - maybe the fan fiction forums.
