in lieu of naughty language

since the wordfilter won't be upgraded, i have some proposals for words to replace naughty words.

so far, we have snow for everything. snow this, snow that, etc. what i propose is that we give each word it's own designation, because it'd be much more amusing. and amusing = more happy fun times at hc.

1. instead of the f-word, how about "fork"?
2. instead of the c-word, how about "cork"?
3. instead of the s-word, how about "shlitz"(as in, the malt liquor)? or is that too close to the offending word? if so, how about "shark"?
4. instead of the n-word, how about "noogie"?
5. instead of the b-word, how about "bike", or "bird"(if "beach" is too close to the offending word)?

or, as alternatives, since these rules are made for kindergarten, we could have these words instead:

1. instead of the f-word, how about "fudge"?
2. instead of the c-word, how about "coochie"?
3. instead of the s-word, how about "poop"?
4. instead of the n-word, how about "noogie"? i'm putting this twice, because i really like this one.
5. instead of the b-word, how about "scaredy-cat"?

what are the other words that are blocked? anyone care to help with this? even though this idea will never get off the ground anyway?


but really, i'm posing this idea seriously. whether it'll be considered or not, is up to val.
===========

edit: added the b-word.

Eh? The gesture seems rather pointless lol, if you have alternatives you use then use them, as long as I can remember I often substituted **** for crap, prostitue with hoe, etc (****/vagina for cooch). Croch for schlong, moist instead of wet, satöbbi satöbbi.

I don't see why we need standardized replacements. Use cuss words within reason and you're golden.

Actually, it is indeed much less fun then it sounds, instead of getting creative, you're going to try to remember the standard replacements like it's somekind of homework. Snow that poop, or was it fork that schinitzel?

you poopheads and your stinky poop opinions make no difference, because none of this will ever even be seriously considered.

@ ghost: nope. i just had an idea, and thought it'd be funny to try and implement.

@ tsar: i emphasize words when i type them due to the way i normally speak. i emphasized the "i", because i was the only one who thought it would be a good idea.

Keep in mind that such replacements could be considered bypassing the word filter .

It's kinda like how here in the Netherlands, we've been replacing words to indicate people that are either foreigners, migrating here or people in lower social work environments with new designations because the older ones accumulated a negative connotation over the years. Of course, within a few years, the new versions accumulated the same negative connotation, much to the surprise of the people who coined up the new terms a few years before. Idiots.

yeah, i thought of that. that's why the words i provided were innocent words; they weren't(for some reason, that word looks weird to me atm) misspellings of the curse words, which is what is considered bypassing the word filter.

Huntington wrote a journal article on a 'Clash of Civilizations' that's rather interesting:

There are some pretty damning counter arguments and holes in Huntington's piece though. Still an interesting read, but it's too broad and thin to properly stand imho (not only that he doesn't properly define his key terms, says Civilization is the highest form of cultural grouping, and lists all the Civs, but doesn't explain why that's the case, simply expects the reader to take it as a given without proper explanation).

pdf if interested.

The intention of auto-censoring is to be a temporary substitute for a penalty (refer to the Code of Conduct and my recent explanation). Making it any more fun than it already is would encourage people to break the rules and post garbage to see how it will turn out.
