Censorship Policy

The users of ChiefsPlanet decided many years ago that we would censor a select few objectionable words. We decided the F-bomb, C-bomb, and N-bomb were amongst those. We have since added ANY racial slur to that list. We've also stated that any attempt to circumvent our automatic censor would result in severe punishment.

However, we've not been very consistent. For instance, I've always allowed a partially censored "****" to stand. I have never allowed umulats or other such methods of fooling the filter to remain if I discovered them. Our lack of consistency has recently been pointed out and I'd like to solve the issue. Please vote your preference.

This is a tangent, but what is the Planet's policy for making major decisions like this. Is it simple majority? Is there a guideline regarding the number of options in the poll or about how they should be constructed (to avoid manipulation)? Might not be a bad idea to establish that policy at some point, or re-state what the current guidelines are.

What's inconsistent? Taking measures to make those four letters appear in that specific order is verboten. Self-censorship that falls short of all-asterisks is okay. That's just where the line presently is.

I'm happy with where the line is now... but, if the majority vote to up the censorship level it won't break my ****ing heart or anything.

Simple majority in something like this.

There have been a few circumstances where it has required more but it is generally announced in advance.

For instance, if 30% of our board feels a moderator is out of line and deserves to be fired, I think that's too high.

There's not really a poll option that reflects my opinion. I want to vote to keep the current policy.

I would say the last option reflects your opinion, then.

I don't know... to me that reads that any attempt to use the word **** other than **** would be censored. Meaning Cosmic's ***** or other self censorship methods wouldn't be Kosher.

I'm as guilty as anyone lately.

If you decided to censor some words, and common variations of them, I'd support it. I don't know how its going to do alot of good though, considering alot of the material and subject matter.

That's what I thought, just wanted to make sure.
