The profanity filter is a pointless, unwanted addition.

Recommended Posts

Let's be sensible and look at this objectively. What, at all, does this address? Children not seeing no-no words? Children swear more than any adult does online, anyone who's grown up with the internet knows this. Not to mention, there are an abundance of underage people posting in the NSFW, strictly 18+ channels, yet this is a non-issue, but swearing in general somehow is? Knowingly letting children, literal children, break the law, but censoring profanity seems like a weird choice...

This shouldn't have even been considered, they're going to witness profanity in other places, they're going to hear it on TTT, YouTube, etc. This achieves absolutely nothing.

Swearing is common not only on the internet but everywhere in real life, I literally cannot see a legitimate reason as to why the censorship was added and why memes and media was placed under 18+. As snake said the adorable children of flux are already experiencing no no words on the server itself, if you were to implement rules prohibiting swearing in game too, not only would it be completely stupid but also un-moderatable.

The actions are counter intuitive, I love to see changes actually happening, and you're gonna have some bad ones (Like this one) but I'm sure you can look at other small ways to add new things and branch out to the community, like the new publication of discord and server bans. 

(Also you've basically made a second porn channel out of memes and media haven't you??)

"Just do this haha, u stupid idiot" is not a valid counterpoint. This is basically an admission that you have no justifiable reason for this being done?

You are aware that statement can mean that you know there is no good reason for this, and not that specifically YOU made the decision.

This is pretty dumb. If everybody starts talking in memes and media because they can't swear in general, then memes and media is just going to become the new general and it defeats the whole purpose of this filter and we end up with a general channel that's never used and these changes end up being pointless lmao

The addition of this filter is possibly the dumbest thing Flux has ever done imo. It's not going to stop swearing and people are just going to find ways to get around the filter, hell they were doing that as soon as it was added. It's not going to stop children from hearing these words as both Snake and Higashi have said, and if anything it's just going to annoy people that they're being censored for no real reason at all.

I'm with wolfe. I can easily see memes and media becoming the new general with veterans at least. There's two major flaws with the changes. 1. Children are immature, or so i've heard from taylor. Might just be me. Anyway, just because you put a profanity filter for swear words doesnt mean children arent going to know swear words. 2. Putting a nsfw warning on does absolutely nothing and if you think it does no offence but you're pretty special. I can confirm this because I joined the server when i was a huge f wording squeaker and the warnings never stopped me.

I'm only gonna support this change if kids like debla aren't allowed in nsfw channels because they are meant to be over 18
