What we need is a way to filter out words that we dont want used (in chat, labels, etc.)

bels, etc.)


Why is this needed?

Swearing is an important pain reduction mechanism, especially when you're losing a game; Have some sympathy for the poor losers!

The use of foul language is the first sign of an uneducated individual. A person desperately looking for vocabulary they obviously do not possess.

Personally I would like the filter too. Not everyone wants to be subjected to such behavior.

I can't say I agree. Some of the most foul-mouthed people I know have
quite large vocabularies and use them to great effect.

I recommend not playing with people who offend you.

If by "uneducated" you mean someone who lacks an Arts Degree, then I agree. I scored 53% in college English, yet somehow still winged my way to an Engineering Degree. And I still wouldn't care less about vocabulary. :)

I don't find swearing offensive. I just overlook it a lot of times, I swear myself and I would like to think others don't judge my game skills or knowledge on my choice of colorful words as I wouldn't judge them on their choice of words.

I know people have a choice to hear it at times and everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I agree with uckelman on this touchy subject in saying try to avoid those players if you feel strongly offended.

Maybe you can request use of less harsh language. A lot of people including myself would respect someones request on that subject.

Just my 0.02 :)
