Post censorship?

is censorship so high that even in the word cl***ic, the "***" part gets ***'ed out (in one of my posts), as it will probably be in the final post of this, what have things come to in this age of technology that we must blurt out anything that even could remotly resembel an explitiv, i agree that this is not a place to swear as the monkey island series may attract younger viewers, but for gods sake, its just ludicrous to single out anything that looks like profanity

(this is not meant to start a flame war, please tread lightly on my statment)

your thoughts, comments, concerns, complaints?

I totally agree with you! If every ****in Word is left out that slightly resembles a ****in swear word then most of my posts will have no words no seriously i think they go to far. In MI4 Instead of sayin HELL they say HECK now what is the point of that *apoligies to catholics and religious ppl*

its not the moderators/admins fault... the UBB code automatically censors words... you have to tell it to ignore things...

Public television has to censor my face because of the hydrolubricious effect it has on female viewers.
