Should we establish a profanity filter?

This poll will be a simple yes or no poll. A profanity filter would simply take words
considered to be profane and turn them into *****.

Duration: 2 weeks.

At the end of the poll, the one with the most votes will reign supreme.

Well, you have fvck, fsck (which is actually a *nix command), phuck, phuk, phuctard, phuktard, fock, f0ck, [email protected], fack, fick, ficken (which is a real German word), etc.
That's just ONE word. Don't get me started on shite and all its variants.
So in order to "properly" ban that word, you will also need to ban variants on the word. Eventually your filters will hit around 100 words.
It would SUCK to be the one typing all that in.

im sure is mainly for those that feel they have to say Fffffudge every other word. I use it alot when I'm driving down the road (rd rage) but I try to keep the cuss words down quite a bit on forums because there are younger people reading, even though I know this will not be the only place they read or hear it but I'm not going to contribute to it if I can help it.

It's a lot easier to go "click-BAN!" than it is typing in all those words.
Less moderator overhead.

I think the members of this forum are good enough people to police themselves and know what is appropriate for certain situations. I'm sure I've dropped an f-bomb on here before, but I only do it if I'm extremely enraged by ignorance or in response to a shot taken at me or my car. I don't think a profanity filter is necessary. If someone's angry, there's too many 4 letter words that they can use in any given situation and it makes understanding them more difficult. Instead, you should make a punctuation filter that limits people's posting capability if they don't use proper punctuation.

"F-bomb, F-bomb, you're my F-bomb...."

I see no reason why any sort of filter would be bad. I mean if you can't find other ways of saying stuff, that's your prob, and shouldn't be everyone's. I've cursed on here many times, but I always wondered how it was taken. Now I know, and I have no problem with giving it up if it offends anyone.
