Instead of having a filter on everyone, do a "GAG" ban, where if said user abuses his language, it'll do the censorship thing.

If you don't want the language showing, it shouldn't matter who's typing it; and just because someone curses once doesn't mean the rest of their comment should be prohibited. An all-over filter would be easier and much more logical to implement.

Sounds fine to me, especially if authors get to set the censors themselves. Could be fun.

You actually could introduce swearing with a filter allowing too much freedom. Replacing "the", "is", "and" with four letter words would create some mayhem...

And that is why my vote is for a simple "On/Off" switch, with SJ controlling the dictionary. It'll likely mess up on foreign languages (but foreign-language comics can just not enable it), but it'll save a lot of confusion and drama.

True enough. Personally, I'd vote for a piratey dictionary, but I understand if that's not everyone's cup of rum.

I wouldn't use it if it was optional and I don't think it would a good idea if it was universal. If people wanted to swear they will find a way to get around your filter

I think this is a bad idea

That's exactly what I was thinking. I've seen enough special characters used to get around filters, and with people able to edit their posts, it'd be even more likely here. (and if you're able to modify the filter, it'll be back and forth a lot. When someone finds a way around a word, you'd filter that alternative out, and then they'd find another way, and etc. Soon, it'd be hard for anyone to leave a comment.)

But, I like the idea of replacing everyday words with cuss words. :D (I wouldn't do it, but I'd like to see a comic that does. Especially soon after it's implimented, when everyone would be commenting about how F ing confused they are.)

When i saw this the first thing that came to mind...
Make a pirate speech filter option...It was somewhat random ...but then I had this thought. What if you could select words that would be replaced with the words of your choice , kind of like google translator....that way you could sensor it or replace it in a way so you would still get a sense of the word if your curse word shy. Alot of people curse out of habbit after all..Myself because I work in a kitchen...But it would be really helpful and fun to do a replacement thing...
for example

Original

F bomb - plural JERK!

I replace the plural version of the f bomb now with Blasting and just because I dont like the word Jerk , I now replace that with meanie
everytime i see WHAT I WANT .

now its BLasting Meanie!

Of course this would probably be WAY to complicated to do and would probably be more fitting for a browser app
...but it was just a idea on this I wanted to share.
