**** 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!

Why is shit verboten and poop acceptable? Why is **** verboten and coitus acceptable? Hard consonants? Are hard consonants simply unacceptable?

Would 'du kannst mein hund fincken yenst' offend you as much? Because it's inviting you to coitus with a dog, though you probably would not know.

I'm bemused but polite. And when I curse I do it straight out so it gets censored for those who would be offended just get asterisks. I don't evade the filter, I engage it.

I also try to phrase things so those who are inclined will know what's behind the asterisks and those who are more naive will be oblivious.

If we can't get rid of the user reporting feature all together, it would be nice if it generated a public message in the thread so everyone would know when a post was being reported, what I was being reported for, and who was reporting it.

Good idea but it'll never happen,I seriously think some here have nothing better to do than scan threads to find something they can be a whiny bitch about.

Well, by my count, we're talking about 7-8 times in the past 2 years (but, that includes some other crap, too), including at least a couple of times when it was obviously intentional.

We do let things slide and will simply delete posts or hand out warnings, but not when someone does it every few months. I didn't see this one, but I've even reported posts in the past as "Thig's quarterly filter evasion."

I guess you could always take it up with AustinChief... it's his board and his rules... but like Phobia said, so many people simply don't have an issue with just spelling the words (and remembering not to post pics that evade the filter).

You're a mod? Just how many mods are on this board? Do they outnumber the non-mods?

Is there a list somewhere?
