Why should they be filtered? The latter is simsaladimbamba's occupation!

I think most posters are responsible enough to use language intelligently and appropriately. The profanity filter exists because of those few who don't exercise such maturity.

Because I'm a person born of free will and I enjoy using language I choose accurately punctuates the way I feel about something, which is what curse words are intended to do. Basically, I don't give a damn.

Your post was adorable though.

I'm clueless. Mat s h i t a. The DVD drive company.
Matshita was being filtered as a result of our editing mistake, which has since been fixed.

My 10 cents worth? There is no need to use profane language, but if you glance at the Oxford and similar tomes, words that used to be considered profanities are now an integral part of the English language. Used in proper context, I can't see any issue.

Used as a target or personal attack is an entirely different animal, and should ( and is) moderated.

People here have asked if certain words are filtered with the profanity filter. You can work this out for yourself. Type in the word in question. And hit preview post. And in the preview, filtered words will be filtered.
