Edit: Cracker does not appear to be censored.

    It was when the Van Houten update first came out.

    I'm thinking that was just the update's description on the iOS App Store, not on the forum. I could be wrong, though.

    No, you are correct. It was censored in the app store's description.

    I'm very sorry for whatever it is that makes you so sensitive to the word *, but more censorship is the last thing that we need around here. The amount of posts that get deleted by mods is insane.

    Again, I'm sorry, but the need for freedom supersedes your sensitivity. If words can hurt you that much, than internet forums are probably not a good choice for you.

    I find your forum name a bit on the offensive side.

    This thread makes me think of this bit from Blazing Saddles:

    Mine? Why?

    And yes, I think it's a very offensive word and people who refer to '****' buttons or glitches should be subjected to a stiff education on what that word actually means.

    All this **** and still no Mod.

    So you find it offensive yet you suggest that people be subjected to it simply for using a word on a message board. Yeah makes perfect sense.

    Can you tell me who I need to speak to about the censorship on the forum. For instance, c-r-a-c-k-e-r is/was censored as we found out in the last update, but for some reason **** is not. I HATE to see that word used in such a pathetic and trivialised manner.

    I'm more than happy to take this to DM or emails, I just need to know who to speak to. Thank you.

    Just wanted to say that I entirely agree with your sentiment - I abhor the casual use of that word out of context. It's incredibly disrespectful and definitely a symptom of * culture.

    That said, censoring it won't fix the problem, which is that these people think it's okay to use the word like that in the first place. It's all part of a much bigger problem, and hiding it won't change it. I can't think of a better action to take - other than calling people out on it personally, which would just invite arguments, so isn't a great idea.

    I haven't seen any misuse, so I guess I can't speak to that. I'm not sure banning the word altogether is necessarily the best solution.

    Edit: apparently the root word already is banned, so it seems like a technical oversight that an admin should be able to change easily, I would think.

    Technically, that usage is more in line with the original meaning of the word. That's not to say that folks shouldn't be more sensitive to what the word has come to mean, but yeah, censoring it isn't going to fix the problem. If anything, it makes it more dangerous. I love loud-mouthed bigots, racists, etc, because I know exactly where they stand - and I know up-front that they are not someone I want to be around. :)
