I've gone ahead and disabled the word filter censorship feature. In the past it's censored words and replaced them with asterisks, as I'm sure many of you are aware. I originally started this site as a young teenager and the censorship feature is a remnant of that. I now feel that it impedes realism in writing and goes against my strong support for freedom of speech. Additionally, user response in the survey we recently held overwhelmingly supported ending the censorship. I'm unsure whether this change will refers previously filtered words, but future words will not be censored. I'm currently looking for a software solution that will allow option censorship on a user by user basis, not sitewide. It is still against the rules to flame or provoke a user, including doing so with profanity.
