in reply to Profanity in the monastery

I think this idea is ludicrous. This "feature" would only waste vrooms time, and contribute further to the asinine idea that others must protect your own eyes. If you live one earth, expect to be offended. I am offended daily, but I don't care...that's life. Such is the cost of Free Speech (arguments of Prior Restraint aside).

It is the duty of the individual to deal with whatever may trouble them. If you don't like it, look the other way.

    Fully agree,

    even if a check for profanity might seem simple whilst comparing entered text with a list of "profanity" you won't be able to maintain the list to catch up all profanity and some does occure only in relation (e.g. "bloody" might be profanity or not). And what about "4ss"? You won't catch that. So better don't feel offended.

    Have a nice day
