    As an ex-S-Mod and Führer of PokéCommunity, I find it appalling that we at PC still have an antiquated swear filter in operation here. Because of it, you can't see my extraordinarily eloquent title for this article. I propose getting rid of it immediately and replacing it with a rule/guideline that states that aggressive language of any kind (be it swearing or not) should be punishable: it's not the words themselves, but how one uses them, that causes damage.

    As I can foresee no opposition to this monumentally brilliant idea, if it has not been implemented by the end of the day, I'll be having words with Lerroux to sort this out.

    I cracked up at the thread title when I saw it on the main page, not gonna lie..

    But yeah, I agree that the swear filter sucks, I mean IMO, we should be able to curse like sailors if that's what we want! Though, I guess it IS technically a kids forum, so removing the swear filters and watching our months might work too.

    Not that I trust some of the members with obeying if the filter is ditched.

    Holy **** I would kill to be able to swear ALL OVER THE FORUM. You even have dumb-asses on the censor. Talk about overkill, guys.

    Besides all the 10-year-olds are all about dropping F-bombs into every other word anyway. It's nothing they haven't heard before.

    Only if it's in the lounge. I'd rather not see swearing all over PC since everyone uses it so fucking unnecessarily.

    I have a solution. Make the forum 18+. Get rid of all these kids and then we actually behave like real ****ing adults.

    lol but some of the mods are under 18. What are you going to do, fire them, or does the staff clause kick in?

    Let's be honest here, kids start using swears at like 3rd to 6th grade. The problem isn't actually with the users themselves, but with the parents. We get one angry mom that sees one swear word and suddenly this place is a sanctuary and breeding ground for murderers and child rapists, or something like that. Angry moms are pretty annoying to deal with so I'd prefer not having to deal with it if we have to. Maybe for the staff and supporter forums though since they're hidden from normal members.

    But Digi, the "no swearing" rule is already without effect in the mod boards and the VIP forum is dead XD Your suggestion is pointless at this moment in time.

    ****, no need to ***** up the ******* forum with these ****** changes.

    Better yet let's just do what we did with the AFD a while back and use the darn filters to be like those Orbitz commercials.

    I had no idea this thread existed. I don't check Staff Lounge enough lol.

    I am so on board with this idea. If kids get to age 9 (the youngest I've ever seen on this site) without knowing what swearing is, then they have absolutely no business being on the internet anyway. I'm so sick of everything being about the children. Yes, Pokemon is targetted at children... but look around! How many of them are there? Everybody active on this site is at least a teenager!

    I agree with this. I've had a 4-5 year old swear at me before (with the big C, too) so if they can get away with it, so can 10 year olds here.

      I don't think Steve would want that. There's a reason he has a censor on here. I'll probably take some time to talk to him about this and see what he has to say some time today, but until then, this discussion shouldn't be taken too seriously.
