Little Reminder

Quote:
2. Swearing - www.M-W.com You can go there to look at a thesaurus or dictionary. There are many words on that site that are better than profanity. This will affect the way people perceive you and broaden your vocabulary. Some profanity is understandable. That is just how some people are, and for other people it just slips. Racist remarks are something different. None will be tolerated. Racist remarks are grounds for removal. The word censor is activated, so don't expect to see your profanity in raw form...
Specifically thread titles. I am tired of changing thread titles because of poor choice of words.

Agreed, we need some parameters here.
Is there any way to adjust the profanity filter?
Like I mean what about Cracker and Spick, Kook, they are just as racist as using n*gger. I think this was approached before, but I can not remember the outcome.
