Language Filter

Would it be possible to implement a language filter, for swear words that have no place in the game? It's not that I personally find them offensive, but some may, especially if there are somewhat more impressionable minds playing. Jsut a suggestion.

Language filters are easy to trick by substituting le7ters w1th numb3rs, adding a_d_d_i_t_i_o_n_a_l c-h-a-r-a-c-t-e-r-s between L E T T E R S, or just mispeling the words, but they involve unnecessary ha**le because of false positives during normal chatting.

In the end they do not stop anyone from swearing but are an annoyance for people engaging in normal conversations. I once played a game where it was impossible to ask if someone wants to buy the "Bastard Sword" you just found. People started calling it "the forbidden weapon" ;)

Also blatant censorship sucks. There is no rule that forbids swearing, since I see no reason to pretend more saint than a pope, there is just a rule forbidding abuse of other people (that does not include sissies, that are insulted when one says in their presence the f-word)

Ironic, considering that fuck and feces are censored on the forums.

It wasn't my invention. Honestly, no idea who has set it.

Bumped for a discussion on censorship. It is clear the ruling has been "f.u.c.k. sissies" but then the narc squad is running around threatening players with reports and demanding their version of niceness.
