**** THE FILTER

So two weeks ago, I web-surf on over to my favorite World Wide Web Bulletin Board ChiefsPlanet.com expecting to engage in some lighthearted Chiefs-related banter. Instead, I'm greeted with a screen telling me I was banned for two weeks for filter evasion.

I could not for the life of me remember when I could have possible evaded the profanity filter. I literally had no idea what I had done to deserve the ban.

So I visited the board as a guest and tried to work my way through my old posts, and I found something in a Geno Smith related thread that finally jogged my memory: I spelled "****" without the "c." That was it.

It's completely ****ing ridiculous that filter evasion is a bannable offense. You really think people can't handle a misspelled swear word? Fine, delete the ****ing post. But there's no reason to ban somebody over that.

I've been surprised by filter evasion bans before. Once I absent-mindedly posted a .gif with a swear in it. Most bafflingly, I was once banned after I spelled "****" with multiple U's. In a case like that, it should be blindingly obvious to any ****brained ****face that I'm not "evading" the filter -- I'm changing how I spell the word to convey a certain meaning or attitude. The intent implied in the word "evasion" is simply not there, and banning should be about intent. Again, a simple deletion would suffice.

I know the counter-argument will be that I've obviously established a pattern of filter evasion, but here's the thing: because I'm not a Sunday School teacher from the 1950s, I'm not shocked by swear words. They don't register as remotely offensive to me. And since I have my filter turned off, I see a constant stream of uncensored swear words in all their ****ing glory. So it's insanely easy for me to forget, on a day-to-day basis, that there's an absurd profanity filter with an even more absurd enforcement policy, made even MORE absurd by the unchecked racism, misogyny, and homophobia that runs rampant on this board and yet is apparently not nearly as offensive as occasional misspelled swear words.

If somebody bombs a thread or the board with blatant, obnoxious attempts at evading the profanity filter, fine, ban them, whatever. But if somebody just slips up and posts a uncensored ****-word, just ****ing delete the post. That's it. Point made. It's goddamn annoying to get banned for TWO WEEKS over some truly minuscule bullshit like that.

AAAAANYWAY, I'm glad to be back! Draft Geno!

Sad. Still obesessed with meaningless rep. I feel sorry for you. You're a huge fatass that's going to drive up the cost of my health care and widow your wife before 60 and you obsess over Chiefsplanet rep.

or this:

* He claimed that he was going to be a very hands off moderator and that he saw himself as being very reluctant to pull the ban trigger. In reality, for a ChiefsPlanet mod he seems to rush to the scene of the most insignificant of crimes in order to be Johnny mod on the spot. I've heard it said that the most dangerous place to be in Washington DC is between Chuck Schumer and a camera. Mr. Flopnuts and moderation opportunities have a similar relationship.

The second one.

I kind of consider you the Chiefs Planet historian. Given your interpretion of US political history and current events, I should probably re-think that. But you do tell some interesting and entertaining tales of mods, AustinChief, BEP, and other nefarious creatures.

Spicing up your spectacularly un-clever "I know you are but what am I" retorts with words you barely understand (like "exemplified") doesn't help you look any less like an actual moron.

The whining thread after the fact and your responses since just tell me that you really don't respect the rules and the you're probably going to be a candidate for banning in the future... sooner rather than later.
Whatever, brah. Two weeks for a misspelled cuss is ridiculous no matter which way you slice it. And you're right, I don't respect this particular rule, because it's super dumb. Like, almost as dumb as stevieray. I'm the Rosa Parks of this profanity filter shit. We shall overcome.

You have nothing to back up your claims except your own whining over some of my posts. You can't prove by any means that I've been dropping ban hammers since I've become a mod. Because I have not. So really, you're slandering my good name sir. I implore you to look passed your biases and see me for who I am. Please consider a donation towards my reelection campaign. Oh wait, there is no reelection. So just get me a beer. One of yours.

Everyone can judge based on their own experience. In my experience you seem to like to be the public face of moderation decisions. There's only one other mod who is even in the running for the "most likely to moderate" crown. Whether it's your finger actually pushing the ban button or not is immaterial. This is an unbiased observation.

I don't know whether you knew you were lying at the time or whether your tiny taste of cyber-power just went to your head, but either way, the community was sold a bill of goods.

You'd better get back to moderator central command now. You never know when the opportunity to respond to an emergency filter evasion might come up and you sure don't want one of the other guys to handle (or worse, ignore) it.
