racial slurs other than [censored]
 
I got a PM about someone using the word chink in a post and requesting that it be filtered. if [censored] is I guess this makes sense too

[censored] = n igger

Chink is one of those that has non-racial meanings as well, so shouldn't be censored.

For similar reasons I don't think h0mo should be censored.

I'd be curious if the filter keeps statistics on how often it censors various words. Does h0mo even get used much? I've used it a couple of times, but only because I was quoting Latin.

homosexual, homogenous. is there much reason for [censored] to be used alone?

this is ok with me. I don't really care either way, and I feel the same towards [censored]. I just don't really get offended by words.

That's the case for most [censored]s.

who on a poker site feels that [censored] sapien is ever necessary, and whom among them can't deal with a little fudge and type Homosapien?

I only brought this up because someone in OOT wrote [censored] sapian twice in a post today and it was censored.
