The filters already exist and work, I believe, so I think just a feature that enables that or not is sufficient.

When to use profanity and when not depends on the company one keeps, doesn't it? My friends and I use føck quite a bit, in a casual way that is, not in anger or any other negative way. But none of us would do that in different company. Although in the Netherlands and in Western-Europe altogether, we're generally quite a bit more relaxed about language than people across the big pond are; profanity is just not an issue. Why an adult would want to protect him/herself from it, is therefore a bit beyond me, I'm afraid. No offence, Cary, I honestly don't see what's so bad about an occasional føck in a pm and why you, as an adult, need to be protected from it.

Can we have a filter to protect me from PMs written by people who misspell a lot of words?

And a filter that blocks out the names of foods I can't stand. The worst one is c*tt*ge ch**se. I don't want to see that! Broccoli is okay.

That's the inspiration for a portion of my f-bombs.

You make some lofty assumptions, bah ha ha, that I'm an adult. My wife would vehemently disagree! :D

This.

Profanity is a tool, like any other, and the more tools one has...

That isn't the issue, the issue is I would rather people not use it when talking to me. Profanity isn't a tool if it fails to convey your message because somebody has tuned you out. If somebody PMs me and is throwing around profanity, it is likely I will just delete the message. Not much of a tool in that regard!

Or I could say...

You just don't f$&$*$% get it, do you? I don't want people s&#$*$ talking around me, it is f&##$# crazy to have to listen to that f*#(#$($ s^*#$#$ all the time. I am just going to f*((*$#% tune you out, and delete your f#$#(#*$ message, you a&#$#@. So take that, you f*#$##% 'tard.

Now which is better? :D There are constructive ways to communicate. An occasional expletive is fine, but some folks really over do it and that is when it becomes a bit frustrating, on forums, in verbal communications, and in private technical tools, like slack, IM, text, etc.

And, like other tools, it loses its edge if overused.

Yeah, but that's an extreme example! I don't know anybody who talks like that. But an occasional, well placed, appropriate føck? Or, oh, dare I mention it, the c-word even! :eek:
However, even though I'm comfortable using four-letter-words, I am well aware that in my country nobody cares about it but in other parts of the world people think differently. And as I'm also rather well mannered, I'm always careful on the internet, especially with Americans, knowing they are often particularly sensitive about it. So you could say that the use of profanity too is bound by rules of conduct. At least for me it is.

I do, the guy 2 offices over seems to do this every day when something breaks in the software we host... This is in an professional office space as well. :(

I will throw out a few here and there verbally, but I never put it into writing on anything. Just my personal preference, but I want those things that are public record to be a bit more professional, even in my personal attachments.

If somebody does this on a daily basis they should do a course in anger management! Unprofessional behaviour as well.

As for your own preference, fair enough, Cary. :-)
